It’s been just over a year since I released my ebook “The Art of Online Ministry”. Thousands of you in many different countries have read it and contacted me with questions or success stories about your online church launches. This is exciting! Now it’s time for those of you who are ministering online to move into new phases of development and expansion.
Our family began dreaming about and focusing on expanding church online globally about 5 years ago, and our overseas online church planting adventure launched shortly thereafter. It’s been thrilling being a thought leader in online ministry, and I remember back when there were only one or two online churches. Today there are hundreds worldwide!
I’d be failing our community of online ministers if I didn’t challenge us all to accelerate our efforts in some key areas. Let’s discuss them! After reading today’s question, feel free to reply here, on my Facebook page, or via Twitter.
At this point in time, there are 3 key areas of discussion I believe those of us who are ministering online must process. Today we’ll discuss Question 1:
1) How do we gather passionate church online leaders in a global network to learn from each other? (Trust me, fellow Americans – some online churches I know overseas are more creative than we’ve had to be due to limitations. There’s much we can learn from each other!)
There’s currently an active online ministers Facebook group. If you’d like to join, add me as a friend on Facebook and send me a note asking to join the group. Give me a little bit of information about yourself, and I’ll introduce you to the group.
Can you share with us your ideas or what you’re already doing to engage with other online ministers or online church teams?
PS – If you haven’t already, be sure to add your online church’s information to this Google doc list! (Note there are separate pages for international and US online churches.)
