When a Churches and ministries decide to use online tools to reach more people, often the conversation leads to reaching a specific type of person. Those people are millennials and the younger generations. But what about the older generations? Can we use online tools to reach them as well? You be we can!

Today Jeanette Yates joins me today to talk about how to use online tools to reach the older generation for Christ and community. In particular we talk about what it looks like to reach people with disabilities with technology for Christ.
