The modern church was born in the era of electronic broadcasting: sound systems, radio, and television. This enabled it to solve certain tasks (e.g., teaching, worship music, announcing events) incredibly well. In this new era of digital communication, can we design structures that are as effective at solving other challenges, such as mobilizing members for evangelism, discipleship, and outreach?
