We got some great feedback last week from our ministry app blog about technology in ministry and what that looks like in our congregations. So I thought I would share some quick data based on the feedback I received and then share a personal story that it all reminded me of.
Then I began to think, if I am not much different than my students, couldn't they make the same changes I did. Why couldn't their devices turn from distractions to tools for growth and outreach? I firmly believe that they can. And as we have seen, almost all students and adults have a mobile device so they opportunity for there to be a wide spread movement is great. I firmly believe we have an opportunity here that we must take advantage of. And I have seen it begin to work in my life already. I have seen it work in my wife's life when some of her girls wanted to know how to share their faith so she told them to get out their phones, download our app, and walked them through the Gospel and how to share it. I have seen it work in a high school student who usually waffles back and forth in his faith. But when he finally had a tool that he could use to grow in his faith and share it with others he got excited and is doing great things.
We have a great opportunity before us if we will choose to not just accept the way things are and instead to choose to see the way things could be and work to make that vision a reality. And I'm scared to think of what it means for those around us if we do not.

Sunil, I wanted you to know that we realize that what we are talking about here and many of the things we offer only work in certain settings. I also want you to know that we are praying for you and ministers just like you all over the world as well as working tirelessly to find ways to encourage you and equip your where you are.
