“Using the technologies of our times to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the coming generation”
Lord, we ask for wisdom, knowledge, skills, and tools that we might be a resource to Your church in fulfilling this vision.
At Digital Ministries, this vision and this prayer express our calling, our vision and our passion. Please share in this prayer for us, even now as you read this page.
“Helping church leaders find and follow God’s plan for using technology in the local church”
We believe that God has a definite plan for each person, each ministry, each local church body and His Church as a whole. We see that plan being communicated and carried out on every page of both the Old and New Testaments.
When God was directing Moses to build the tabernacle, it was a major shift in the use of technology for worshiping God. Moses could not have accomplished God’s plan without help. But God had prepared a technology leader, Bezalel, to assist Moses. In addition to that, God had prepared others to work beside Bezalel, and through parting gifts from the Egyptians, God had even provided the materials that would be needed.
In the same way, God has prepared a technology leader, a ministry group, and the needed resources for each local congregation to follow God’s plan for technology. For some, it is a small plan. For others, it is a bold and far-reaching plan. But whatever God has in mind, He has prepared all that will be needed.
“Package and provide readily accessible technology systems that will allow church and ministry leaders to see how God is working in their midst”
We have been called to open doors for technology by assisting with the development, acquisition, deployment and use of pilot programs designed to demonstrate where God is leading.
This strategy is focused on three specific barriers to the use of technology in church and ministry settings:
By making technology available free of any charges, we overcome the first barrier. We overcome the other two barriers by making this technology easy to use for any church staff member or volunteer.
The best and most visible technology for this purpose is a free church or ministry website.
Digital Ministries, Inc. was formed to help churches and parachurch organizations use digital technology to:
- Glorify the name of Jesus Christ
- Communicate the Gospel and the love of Christ
- Reach the next generation with this Good News
- Foster an Internet community of Christ-centered believers
- Make the church more relevant and compelling
- Help pastors and ministers use their gifts more effectively
- Support Christian ministries as they support the body of Christ
