  • Compaq 386 ran at a speed of 16MHz and had a 40Mb hard drive. This was the beginning of computers and technology for me. And now today, over 20 years later, many things have changed in the computer and technology world. We’ve gone from megabytes to gigabytes to tetra bytes over night. ----- Meeting Notes (11-01-10 15:21) -----Compaq 386 ran at a speed of 16MHz and had a 40Mb hard drive.

  • Benefit of Facebook: When Jesus was here on Earth, He went where the people were. Today the people are on Facebook. Don’t you think that if Jesus were here today, He would have a Facebook account?
  • So what does all this have to do with church? Why would you want to use social media like Facebook or twiter for your church? Because it's another way for your church members to connect with each other. It's quite likely that many people who attend your church are on Facebook on a regular basis; this gives you another way to keep in touch.The social nature of media will continue to converge in ways we cannot imagine during the next five years. As church leaders, it is important to understand the state of social networking, and the directions of these participatory technologies. These tools may promise significant benefits to churches, who seek to build community, mobilize congregations, and offer greater interaction with unbelievers. And an understanding today leads to better action today and better planning for tomorrow.
  • Facebook first had groups, which are designed for groups of people to bond over common interestes. The founders of Facebook noticed that businesses and organizations wanted to have a presence on Facebook too. They came up with Pages to remedy the problem. Having a page on Facebook allows the church to post pictures, links, updates, and more. You can think of your Facebook page as an extension of your website and you want to point people when possible from your Facebook page to your website. Make a pageUsing your personal page as an outreach, build relationships
  • Twitter is a quick way of letting people know what is going on. It is great for spreading news.
  • The options on this slide allow you to update multiple social media accounts at once. Instead of updating Facebook and then updating Twitter, you can do them at the same time to save yourself some time. I use hootsuite.com. It is free and built into your Internet browser.

  • Notes: The map shows countries that are offering 2G/3G services commercially.
  • The first commercial text message was sent in December of 1992. Today, the number of text messages sent and received everyday exceeds the total population of the planet.The total number of SMS sent globally tripled between 2007 and 2010, from an estimated 1.8 trillion to a staggering 6.1 trillion. In other words, close to 200 000 text messages are sent every second.Assuming an average cost of $0.07 per SMS, in 2010 SMS traffic is generating an estimated USD 812 000 every minute (or around USD 14 000 every second).

  • Communication with God
    “Virtually all of Egypt’s Internet addresses are now unreachable, worldwide,”
    I’m thankful that the lines of communication between us and God are always open.
    No man or offline technology can ever sever those connections.
    Here are a couple bible texts that remind us, God always hears our prayer.
    Psalm 17:6, “I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer.”
    1 John 5:14, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
  • Questions?

    “Digital communication has evolved rapidly in the last few years with an ever-increasing number of ways for Internet users to communicate with one another,” said Mark Donovan, comScore senior vice president of mobile.
    “From PCs to mobile devices, whether its email, social media, IM or texting, consumers have many ways to communicate and can do so at any time and in any place.
    The decline in web-based email is a byproduct of these shifting dynamics and the increasing availability of on-demand communication options.”
