Each passing year, more spiritual leaders are realizing the urgency of church revitalization and determined to do something to breathe new life into their church. How can we plan for church revitalization in the digital culture?
Each adult is now spending about six (6) hours a day with digital media. Technology is at the center of our culture. Technology is not merely a means of getting things done anymore. It is now a means to communicate, means relationship.
According to the Religious Landscape Study by Pew Research Center, the phenomenon of religious “Nones” who identify themselves unaffiliated with any religions, is a striking counter-trend, and they are becoming the largest segment of the population.
The spiritual leaders have to pay their attention to a fact that more than half of current religious “Nones” were raised in a religion, according to reports by “Future of the Church Summit”. The “Dones” is now the newest “Nones”. In other words, many of the American Church’s most faithful and active members are becoming the quickest to permanently walk out the church doors. “Nones” and “Dones” are digital natives or early adopters. They are a thriving group of people where technology rests at the core of their culture.
When we talk about church revitalization in the digital age, we must prepare ourselves to answer the following questions:
- What will be the first step to becoming an inviting church in the digital culture?
- What will be the first step to a welcoming, belonging, engaging church in the digital culture?
I want you to make yourself available for a two-hour presentation and dialogue to quest on these crucial questions with me. Please make an appointment for FREE two-hour coaching on this subject.
