Overview

As if ministry wasn't challenging enough, today pastors must also navigate the bewildering seas of "the digital age." But what technologies are right for our church, and how do we use them?
Wired for Ministry offers practical strategies for integrating technology and ministry while keeping a watchful eye on potential technological pitfalls. Remembering that technology is the medium and not the message, Jewell discusses specific ways that tools such as the Internet, digital video, and music can enhance youth groups, worship services, educational ministries, and evangelism.
Pastors, Christian educators, youth leaders, and Sunday school teachers will rely on this useful guide. Jewell's wise introduction to the process of bringing technology into ministry will be indispensable for Christian leaders and "lay-techies" everywhere.
