Episode 23 of How We Do Digital Ministry features Ryan Panzer, a leadership developer for digital culture and author of Grace and Gigabytes: Being Church in a Tech-Shaped Culture. Ryan talks with Christopher Harris about going beyond using technology for just one-way communication, and starting to focus on conversation and collaboration.
Churches should be thinking about, when it comes to using technology, not just how good we can build lots of shiny and flashy tools, but how we can convene conversations to bring communities together, to ask questions, to share stories, to articulate experiences of faith and how God has been acting in our lives in our world.Ryan Panzer
