This is a part of a series of posts responding to the question: Is the church a business? Today the focus is on technology.
Technology is an important part of my every day work as a pastor at Resurrection. We have a full time Information Technology department here at Resurrection made up of 8 staff persons. They keep internet, phone, communications and computers up and running.
As a pastor, I have found that technology helps me connect with people. Through blogging, email and church management software I am able to have contact and connection with far more people than would otherwise be possible. Technology also serves to make process and procedures more efficient allowing me to be able to spend more time with people.
The bottom line is that technology allows me to connect with more people and spend more time in personal interaction with persons.
Do you see technology as a part of the church? If so, in what way? If not, why not?
