The Future of Virtual Ministry

From Revd Mark Brown:

Today I preached my last message in the Anglican Cathedral of Second Life and chose to focus on the future of Virtual Ministry. I pointed out that research shows a majority of Christians don’t regularly attend church and stated that the usual solution of attempting to make church attractive is only part of the answer. I shared that we as a church need to go where people are, as well as expecting people to come to us.

And at the end of the service I was quite moved when those worshiping, spontaneously gathered around me to pray for me.

What does the future hold for Virtual Ministry?

From Revd Mark:

This weekend I preach my final message before I formally retire from the Anglican Cathedral of Second Life. Next weekend is my farewell service. My final talk is, ‘What does the future hold for Virtual Ministry? ‘ I will offer some possibilities, some ideas as to where virtual ministry might be heading. I can see two futuresl_001.jpgrealities converging, which will fuel online worship: 1) A declining number of people calling themselves Christian yet not attending the local church, and 2) the massive growth of the internet.

The service I am speaking at is 8pm Saturday Los Angeles time. Click here to see what time this is in your part of the world. You are welcome to come and join us!

Big numbers = success: really?

Rev Mark writes:

In my sermon this past weekend in the Anglican Cathedral of Second Life I talked about the game, the trap of being drawn into believing that personal success is related to how many people are involved in our ministry. Big numbers = success. But what was Jesus’ approach to ministry followers?
