The Impact of the Internet on the Church - PowerPoint


Published on

As part of my Master's Class, "Contemporary Theological Issues" at the
Evangelical University and Seminary in Plant City, FL, I did a project on the impact of the Internet on the church. This is my PowerPoint presentation from that course (sorry, the videos don't work on SlideShare - see note at the bottom). You will also find my term paper and a copy of the survey that was completed by 66 friends, releatives, and associates.

Note: You should find three videos here that were part of the powerpoint.
