Hello to you and welcome to this the ninety-fifth episode of The Ministry Encouragement Podcast.  This podcast is designed for all Christ Followers who wish to grow deeper in their own faith journey and receive encouragement as they serve others in ministries.

I’m so glad you took time out of your busy schedule to share with me today in a topic that is often discussed by nearly everyone in ministry:

3 Tech Ministry Priorities for Great Pastors and Christ Followers


In Ministry – What should be my Tech Priorities to touch lives? 

Our discussion has to begin with our own understanding of technology and social media in our culture, community, congregation, and personal life.  There is a wide variety of views today!

So after coming to know hundreds of Pastors and Christian Leaders over the last 20 years there has been a clear technology revolution and evolution.  So first we can narrow this discussion to the last two years – since if we go further back than that our information may be obsolete.  What has stood strong in the jungle of hundreds of new inventions, innovations and APPS?  What would be your 3 Top Tech Priorities for ministry today?

Here are my 3 top Tech and Social Media recommendations for great Pastors and all Christ Followers in ministry:

  1. Use Technology & Social Media to zoom in on Staff and Leadership
  2. Take seriously Smartphones and maximizing ministry touches
  3. Don’t neglect Low Tech and Huge Impact tools from the old days

It’s my prayer that if you follow my 3 suggestions for prioritizing technology and a few of the old ways, your ministry will be strengthened, you will form many new relationships that matter and you will find those you are ministering to open up to share with you spiritually in entirely new ways on a new level.
