# 08313 :  Ministry in the digital age

Today, most churches have taken to internet-based platforms with their official digital channels. But, is an online presence or a mobile phone application absolutely necessary to survive in the modern times? 

One of the unique feature of the world wide web is that it facilitates interaction unlike religion offline that usualy follows a one-to-many communication structure. But do reigious bodies encourage such interactions online beyond a 'contact us' option which usually does not yield a reply?

Some scholars now see the world wide web as an extension of the offline world because, now, there are only very few people who are not online. Is such a perspective justifyable? Or should the online be kept separate from the online? 

The scope of new media is vast but, at the moment, the chuches here may not be utlising it. The use of live streaming, YouTube videos, audio sermons etc and advanced technologies like virtual reality and immersive tools can take the ministry to a global audience. The potential of social media, video conferenceing etc is also huge. But will such innovations find an audience among our population? 

Finally, will online religion turn out to be a threat to religion offline?

There is an understanding: If the Lord let you make fire, He lets you use it. What ever is made on earth by man is permitted by God. There is no harm not using it for His glory.

Joe
