Angela Craig: Digital Church Is Biblical, but Only If You Do It Like This

“We only do live videos. We don’t do any streaming at all because I didn’t find it to be effective and Facebook doesn’t like to share it.” 

“To do effective digital ministry, you have to change your way of teaching…online if you really want to be able to reach people, you need to be able to have a conversation with them.”

“For anybody who wants to do digital and see it really succeed, offer to pray for people every morning.”

“We are living in a whole different world where people need to be known, they need to be seen, and social media has really increased that need. 

“We have an adaptive leadership style in our church where if the world pivots, we pivot.” 

“Until you’re actually in it, you don’t understand that this is different. God is using technology to reach every corner of the world, and God is not exclusive. So when someone says, you can’t have church online, you’re basically saying, ‘Well the people that can’t get to a church don’t matter to us.’”

“We get hung up on this idea that we need to get them in a building. Well, there are a lot of people that can’t get into a building.”

“In traditional church, there’s a lot of barriers to what people will think of you. Online you break that down pretty quickly.”
