So I'm off to the Christian New Media Conference in London tomorrow and thought I would post a few thoughts before setting off. Firstly, I have to say I'm really looking forward to going to the event and excited about the whole experience.
West Auckland Community Church (WACC) a rural fellowship who has been using new media for sometime now including website, blogging, social media, podcasting, internet radio and video. The growth of social media to share the Gospels has been really interesting, because this activity has not just been from official WACC accounts but through personal accounts from people who are part of the WACC family. We have dipped our toes in different aspects of new media with a real heart for getting God's message out there. I just can't help but think there is more? What I mean by that is not more areas for us to explore but more depth in what we are already doing in this ministry. Depths that reach and engage with people on the fringe, people in the community we are called to serve and people who are looking for more.
I am going to this conference with questions to be answered, a desire to learn and share experiences but above all to meet with God.
