Summary

Did you know you can read online reviews of your church?

How often have you talked about “reaching people where they are”—and realized that much of the time, they are on the Internet?

We’ve been living in a digital world for quite a while now. Justin Wise speaks about social media as this generation's printing press—a revolutionary technology that can spread the gospel farther and faster than we can imagine.

It’s time to take what we know (and admit what we don’t know) and learn together how to move forward as the church. Are you ready to think theologically about this digital age and reach people in a new way?
