How can a congregation equip its leadership with practical competencies so that they operate a ministry that impacts people's lives despite all the adverse statistical reports?

THE AGE OF DIGITAL NOMAD AND SOCIAL DISTANCING

Two new trendy words are representing the COVID-19 pandemic: Digital Nomad and Social Distancing. The associated effects will continue dramatically changing the world we know. It is terrible news for the church with belonging and in-person interactions at the center of its essence. Even before the pandemic, traditional ministries have been disrupted by the digital revolution, and old ministry paradigms stopped working decades ago, with the advent of the digital world in which we live now. Most of the spiritual leaders acknowledge this statement’s veracity because they have personally experienced it; further, statistics indicate that the digital age brought in its wake an inevitable disruption that had an impact on not only churches but all industries. Brick and mortar establishments, which seemed to have a permanent existence, have disappeared for good because of the digital revolution.

How can a congregation equip its leadership with practical competencies so that they operate a ministry that impacts people’s lives despite all the adverse statistical reports?

When seeking to reach new people in your ever-fast changing community, who are thriving in today’s digital culture, we need to produce a strategy continuously adapting to the changes. Duplicating a known good case and introducing it into your local setting does not guarantee your success at all. Instead, the development requires you to analyze, implement, execute, evaluate, and enhance your ministry from multiple perspectives because of your community’s complex diversity and the dynamics brought by your organization.
