Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

Church in an App

QUOTE: " At Mars Hill we live for Jesus as a city within the city—knowing culture, loving people and seeing lives transformed for Jesus. Part of that mission is utilizing the technology available to us to reach as many people as we can in our cities and around the world. God has often used technological advancement to spread the gospel through the church. At the time of Paul it was the Roman's system of roads. For the Reformers it was the printing press. For Billy Graham it was sound amplification systems and stadiums. For Mars Hill, we have been blessed to have the opportunity to use the advances in video and Internet distribution." —blog from Mars Hill Church in Seattle, which recently joined the growing list of churches offering an iPhone app. Mars Hill's app not only allows users to watch, listen to or stream sermons, songs and services, it also lets them donate online and stay connected via church blogs and announcements.
