(App)licable

March 18, 2010

Trinity Baptist Church has a college pastor- Nils Smith. But he isn’t just any college pastor. His full title is “pastor for college and online community ministry.” Trinity, like a few different churches, has begun to embrace technology to help them reach people in their congregation. They can see that the social media networking sites aren’t just for teens. In fact they were surprised to learn that adults, especially those over 50, have been the most active about participating in their online community. Here are some ways trinity has used online resources for their congregation:

  • Online community
  • Quickly updating prayer requests/praise reports from their congregation
  • Personal testimony sharing
  • iPhone app with online resources
  • Connecting their three campuses to be one community

While they know they still have a lot of untapped potential, Trinity is very pleased to see how using technology has helped to create their multi-generational congregation.
