BASIC CHURCH

TECH SEMINAR

Christian pollster, George Barna, reported that 75% of the people who make a decision for Christ do so between the ages of 12 and 24. This age group gets its information from screens, not the printed page. The Evangelical church is shrinking. It is not keeping up with population growth. We live in a new digital age, and the church that chooses not to use digital technology to reach the most responsive demographic to the gospel will do so at its own peril.

 

Many churches do not have a website and those who do often have poor content or fail to keep it up to date. Social media is an effective and inexpensive way to communicate a message, but many churches ignore this opportunity.
