Technology can be a powerful enabler of the ministry teaching experience, and can significantly amplify the classroom experience. This, of course, has never been truer than during recent times, where the Coronavirus pandemic forced communities to congregate using online platforms and video technology.

Just some of the ways church team’s around the globe are implementing technology include encouraging kid-friendly Bible apps, creating visual presentations, live-streaming ministry events, creating community social media groups, and so much more. 

With the tech space being ever-changing, this doesn’t mean you have to chase the latest new gadget or invest in every single fad. You do, however, need to ensure you are communicating in a way that is both engaging and relevant to the children and families who attend your ministry every week. The kids in your children’s ministry are likely to be more knowledgeable about technology than you are since they’ve grown up around it. So, why not incorporate something they are familiar with to teach them about faith?

But for many of us working in the church community, technology can still be a daunting prospect. Thankfully, there are many great tech Facebook groups out there that have made it incredibly simple for members of the church community to connect, learn and grow. 

From live-streaming to presentation design; let’s take a look at some of the great places you can find online community help and support.
