Episode 30 of How We Do Digital Ministry features Rev. Jim Keat, Digital Minister at The Riverside Church in New York City and the Director of Online Innovation at the Convergence Network. He is also a Digital Consultant to various progressive faith agencies and organizations. Rev. Jim and Christopher Harris talk about what it means to be a digital minister at a large church, as well as how those practices can be applied to churches of any size.
Digital ministry is not a vertical silo in the church. It’s a horizontal slab that covers every single thing. What is the digital ministry of worship, of stewardship, of education, of pastoral care, of social justice? It can’t stand separate from those, but it has to be embedded in all of those.Rev. Jim Keat
