Over the last 15 years, there’s been a quantum shift in how schools, businesses, and the world at large communicates. The world has become smaller through social media, and recent advancements in technology allow the average person to simultaneously interacting with people on every continent in real-time. It’s even commonplace for ministers and church members to use their tablets and smartphones during service to find and discover scriptures, ancient language definitions, and song lyrics.
These global transitions are happening at a rapid pace that make it almost impossible to stay on top of, unless you have a computer science background or a monthly budget of thousands of dollars dedicated to your church’s online presence.
