Using Technology for Kids' Ministry

Using Technology for Kids' Ministry

by Drew Williquette on April 06, 2020

While I’m writing this, I’m reminded just how thankful I am for technology.

In the past few weeks, I’ve realized just vital tech in ministry has become. Without it, our ministries would have been practically non-existent during this past month. It is amazing to me how reliant we now are on it.

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we’ve relied heavily on Vimeo and Facebook live to broadcast services and special video announcements to the people in our church. This would have not been possible fifty years ago.

I’m very thankful for technology. More than ever before.

Additionally, I’m thankful for those who serve in our church and kids ministry as sound and tech volunteers. They add so much to our ministries and they make them better than they would be without them.

Not only that, I’ve realized how special of a platform modern technology is. Because of it, we can utilize our ministry platforms in amazing ways (ways I’m learning about even today because of the flexibility required of our ministry during this outbreak to remain connected to our kids and parents).

Because of this pandemic, we have grown to develop our ministry in ways we have never thought about before. And because of this, we have better and more ways of reaching our kids in the 21st century (kids who are already very technologically advanced!).

Because of a trial that the Devil would love to use to make us disconnected to our kids, we now have more ways to be better connected to our kids.

Praise the Lord. We’re thrilled to see how God will use our efforts using tech as a resource to better reach children while we stay submitted to Him.
