Knowing when to Incorporate Technology into your Ministry

Podcast IconYou don’t have to be a Rocket Scientist to realize that technology is all around us. And because there is always an “app” or technological tool for you to use personally and for your ministry, it is hard to determine what you should or should not be using to better your ministry.

That is why Tom brought in Christopher Wesley to talk about one of his recent blog posts, “Where Does Technology Belong In Your Ministry?“. In this episode they will talk about…

  1. Fall and Ministry
  2. What are the factors that contribute to determining whether or not you use technology in your ministry
  3. A shameless plug (tease of course) of his Student Ministry band’s album coming out Oct. 15th.

If you want to connect with Chris you can find him in a few different places:

  1. On Twitter (
  2. At his Blog (
  3. Chris’ book, “Rebuilding Youth Ministry” (
