You probably have noticed that most churches and ministries now have a ministry app. You may be wondering why though. Well you probably have noticed that we now live in a mobile world. Just look around your church and you can see that we never leave home without our mobile devices. Now some of this needs to be rejected or done away with as we do spend far too much time on our mobile devices. But also I believe that some of this use of technology just needs to be redeemed. What do I mean? Instead of just telling everyone to get rid of their phones and tablets why not see them as an opportunity to effectively equip our members to go out and do ministry. Some churches have begun to see this opportunity and therefore have an app. But most of those apps are more about marketing their church. Why not have an app that actually helps the people whom you minister to, go out and minister to others. Then we take what has for a while now been a distraction and a temptation for sin and redeem as something that can help us be a light to a lost world around us.
Hey everybody, this is Buck. I wanted to let you know I just got the opportunity to spend the weekend speaking at a Disciple Now in East Texas this weekend. They were using our "Empowered" curriculum and it was great to hear the kids and leaders responses to the curriculum and what it was teaching them. You can check out the audio of the series I taught below.
It was also a great reminder of just how great an event Disciple Now is. I loved everything from speaking and worshiping with the students, to hanging out to having a crazy time with them on a scavenger hunt, to helping them serve their community. It is always great to see how God is using these weekends to transform students lives all over and to be able to be a part of what God is doing.
I would love to be a part of what God is doing in your students' lives and churches as well. If you are in need of a speaker for Disciple Now, Camps, Special events, or whatever, I would love to come and join together to help your student ministry and church find what it is God is calling them to. Just contact me through our website and I will get in touch with you.
