Church Online European Conference
I’ve just returned from a fantastic holiday in Provincetown, MA.
There is an interesting report on the ninth European Christian Internet Conference, ECIC IX, Cluj, Romania By Sean Hawkey As churches are finding it increasingly difficult to get ‘bums on pews’, an emerging new breed of church leader is bringing millions to church. They administer pastoral care on a one-to-one basis and in group sessions, provide religious and educational information and services, run diaspora and administrative services. Best of all, from the point of view of the Churches, they are engaging with ever-increasing numbers of the most elusive and high-potential group – youngsters. The unlikely heroes for the Churches are webmasters.???
