Enhancing Ministry Using Technology

6 April 2020

Covid-19 virus can linger in the air for up to 3 hours. Large church group meeting, singing, up close preaching in congregants and other close up meeting are high risk. Physical distancing is known, along with hand washing and hygiene, to be effective in the fight against the spread of the virus. At this time, as there is no safe and effective vaccine against the virus. For this reason, all church gatherings are prohibited.

Consider going digital.

What does digital even mean? Quite simply, it means using technology, which many people already have in the form of their cell phones and personal computers to carry out work they mainly do manually.

Some local churches are already using technology to do the following ministry activities.


  1. Church services
  2. Church leadership meetings, bible study groups and home groups.
  3. Church administration
  4. Training
  5. Receiving financial offerings and tithes
  6. Outreach
  7. Marketing their events
