Mobilize Your Church’s Digital Disciple-Makers

It’s Time to Update Your Church’s Digital Strategy

There are incredible opportunities to evangelize and disciple people digitally that have nothing to do with the online service.

When COVID hit, and church members were locked out of the church building, hundreds of thousands of churches were forced to develop a digital strategy. Broadcasting Church Services made a lot of sense in March 2020. Today, now that our members are back in church buildings, Online Church Services don’t make as much sense.

Digital is more than a virtual place where people can gather. It’s also the modern Roman Roads where the gospel can be scattered globally, especially if we empower people with the Gospel to share as they go. Do we ignore the missional and disciple-making potential of digital in our churches? Or is it time to develop a new digital strategy?

Don’t be upset that people are not in our church buildings. Instead, be upset that people do not have a spiritual purpose when they are not in our church buildings. Leadership Network wants to help churches like yours develop a digital discipleship process that will empower people to be on-mission digitally, and physically.

  • Digital Content

    Content is necessary for any church digitally. As powerful as weekend services are, there are other opportunities beyond the sermon to connect digitally.

  • Digital Community

    Content and community work hand in hand to build trust. Engagement strengthens relational equity, allowing the gospel to be heard.

  • Digital Disciple-Making

    Content and Community are hollow without intentional disciple-making. Digitally we must move beyond consumerism and help people find their spiritual calling.

  • The Role of Physicality

    The output of our discipleship is not just digital but physical. What if we mobilized digital disciple-makers to impact the world physically and digitally?
