For the recent winter module on Church Ministry, Dr Gonzales was tasked with lecturing on the topic of "technology and church ministry." In the first lecture he provides a biblical and theological framework for understanding technology and its relation both to culture and also to the church. Then, in the second lecture, Gonzales surveys various modern technologies used to facilitate ministry outreach, discipleship, community, and worship. Along the way he highlights the benefits as well as some of the drawbacks for some of these technologies. Gonzales concludes the series by encouraging pastors and students to count the cost, to minister within their means, and to keep their priorities right (i.e., technology isn't our priority; the gospel is).
We hope you'll find these lectures stimulating and helpful. A PDF copy of Dr Gonzales' lecture notes will be posted shortly.
