We are called to do 21st century church in the age of the technological revolution, which has shifted the ways the world operates and people think. Technology absolutely runs the world, and every individual utilizes technology – at home, in the workplace, and in education. The challenge is that statistics reveal that growing churches have integrated technology into the fabric of their churches. Thus, there is a correlation between non-growing churches and the lack of the use of technology. If your church is going to maximize its growth potential in today’s climate and culture, it must integrate technology. However, many older church leaders, who did not grow up using technology, don’t feel comfortable using it nor do they have a great deal of value for it.
However, statistics reveal that the average smartphone user checks his/her device once every six minutes (or 150 times a waking day). In 2012, non-profits saw a 21% increase in online revenue in 2012 over the previous year. Churches who employed online giving on their websites saw a five- or six-fold increase in donation dollars. In 2012, 33% of non-profits’ online revenue was sourced to email. For groups with monthly giving programs, monthly giving revenue grew at a much faster rate than one-time giving; one-time gifts accounted for 89% of online giving. Unfortunately, church leaders in declining churches have not understood the benefits of technology, and 35% of church leaders discourage the use of technology in their churches.
