Two essential questions to ask when using technology in ministry [video]

Earlier this week I posted a video on the Life In Student Ministry YouTube Channel for a fellow youth pastor’s ministry network meeting. He asked me to shoot a quick video for them talking about technology in youth ministry. I encouraged youth workers to remember that technology is literally a tool and not just a “cool factor” for ministry. I also offered a couple questions we should ask in evaluating the technology tools we use in ministry.

Check out the video and comment below with your own thoughts.

The TED-style talk I reference in this video can be viewed here, “Leveraging Social Media for Discipleship and Evangelism.”

    Tim, honestly our student ministry at times has been guilty of using technology as a cool idea than a tool for our ministry. This was challenging that I am going to try and share with my creative team for them to always remember that it should be used as a tool to further the Gospel! Thanks for the reminder man…
