3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Benjamin A. Simpson VINE VOICE on February 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
Technology is a love of mine, and as tools continue to develop, there is a great deal of potential to leverage technology for ministry. The Internet, in particular, can be an effective form of communication for churches. Mark Stephenson, in his book Web-Empowered Ministry: Connecting With People through Websites, Social Media, and More, gives us a place to begin for thinking about and developing the use of the Internet for ministry.

Some churches develop their web presence effectively, while others struggle. In large part, this is because church leaders who are often tasked with the development of a church web-site or effectively developing other avenues for communicating effectively with the web are busy with other tasks. There are pastoral counseling calls to make, sermons to prepare, and meetings to attend. And most churches do not have the resources to build and develop a large staff. They depend a great deal on volunteers to keep things going.

The web continues to grow as a constant presence in the lives of everyday people. As such, there is a continued need for reflection on how we can best use the Internet as an extension of what we do within the ministry of the local church. Web-Empowered Ministry is a ministry manual, and it reads like one. Don't expect a page turner. Expect a how-to guide to web ministry that covers everything from design to utility for various web services. Stephenson covers web development, how to use free online services (such as Twitter, Facebook, etc.), and the basics of how a church website can deliver content (sermons, classes, etc.) to the masses. Stephenson also points his reader to Web Empowered Church, a network of church web development and IT professionals who can help with the development of an online presence.

I have begun working with a small church that really needs to let the World know what this church has to offer. I have learned so much about web based ministry from this book that we are moving into areas we didn't think were available to us. All I can add is---Thank You!!!--Curtis Gay Author of One More Sunrise -Memoir of s Combat Infantryman in Viet Nam
