Fast forward to 2010-2011, I am so happy to see what God is doing through Radiant Fellowship and my own ministry “That’s Not My God” online. Each week we stream our services live online and people all the way from South Africa to Kyrgyzstan to Waupaca are watching each week. My online ministry currently generates 102,000+ hits every three months with people from all walks of life engaging in meaningful conversation about all things Christianity. On and on I see how this trend is more and more true. My blogs generate 12,000 hits a month and the Radiant Fellowship podcasts get a lot of listens as well. Sure we can sit back and ask, “how do you track weekly attendance?” or my personal favorite, “how do you get people to fill out first time commitment cards?” My answer is WE DON’T! Church is more than a commitment form so we can ultimately get someone to give money to the church so we can grow some more. I will be ranting about building programs in my next blog btw.
Cyber ministry is so great and I would suggest any ministry to get started with it. Keep in mind though that as a pastor/leadership person you can monitor and even control who comes into your church. You can even control what is said in your church…in the cyber world you better have some thick skin because it is open for discussion on an international basis….AND I LOVE IT!
