Effective Technology in Ministry

A Practical Guide
  • By Jonathan B. Lonon, Gabriela Yamasaki
Product Description
Technology and church ministry: two concepts that many may think have nothing in common with each other. However, for author Jonathan Lonon, church ministries are missing out on ample opportunities to share the gospel with others just because they have not or are unwilling to embrace technology. In his new book, Effective Technology in Ministry: A Practical Guide, Jonathan discusses the pros and cons of using technology in church ministry and spreading the gospel. Through research and personal experience, Jonathan has seen that several churches are not using the engaging means that technology can provide to develop congregations and empower the message of Christ to others. With his "techie" background influencing his beliefs in the benefits of technology, Jonathan hopes to educate readers on technology to dispel fears, uncertainties, and the general assumption that ministry could be hampered by technology. The belief to Jonathan is that if businesses can be improved upon through the advantages of technology, so can churches that are in the "soul business" of guiding people to God. Effective Technology in Ministry: A Practical Guide offers the Simple Strategic Approach for people of a knowledge of technology that provides insight on common technology pitfalls Jonathan learned while working closely with churches, as well as easy worksheets for ministry volunteers to complete as they implement more technology into church services, ministries, and other activities. The book also can be used as a scholarly resource for advanced learning in technology. Though technology is an asset to all of us nowadays, and can be as well for churches, Jonathan also discusses in his book how technology should aid, not replace, fellowshipping with others or connecting to the needs of those in the congregation and community. Technology is all around so why not adapt it where it could count the most - in your church! Jonathan Lonon is an Executive Pastor and Church Administrator for Atlanta Grace Place Church of God by Faith (COGBF). He teaches Technology, Ethics, and Governing courses at the COGBF Theological Institute and is Executive Director of Youth Building Altars, a youth mentoring program. He earned degrees from SC State and Clemson Universities; has 40+ years of tech-based experience as a computer programmer and successful entrepreneur; and is founder of The Church Technology Club - a support solution launched in tandem with this book release. He is happily married to Mrs. LaBrentha Lonon and has three wonderful children, Ashley, Quentin, and Kelsey. You can contact Jonathan on his website: https: //
