We live in an “on demand” culture where the majority of people are connected to technology for a majority of their time. Ephesians 5 tells us “to make the most of every opportunity…” to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that digital technology is the single greatest opportunity that the Church of 2018 has to reach people far from God, to disciple people in a fast-paced age, and to connect people in a life-giving faith community.
This year, we will expand our digital footprint by developing engaging apps for students and children, expanding our online experience, and initiating online community groups. Imagine how we can impact a digital generation together, by reaching people anytime, anywhere with the message of the abundant life that Jesus came to give! The possibilities are endless.
Our online church community has grown to become our largest audience ever! Last year we saw 2,908,171 people join us online and today we average 65,000 people per weekend. Every week we hear stories of lives being changed by the message of Jesus Christ. We want to continue new ways to engage and expand our online community by providing community groups, online resources, and relevant content to our church family and beyond.
Every weekend we see an average of 25,000 households tune in to our television program. This has led to so many walking through our doors and finding Jesus because we decided to step out and put church on TV. In 2018, we want to expand this area of ministry. We aim to use this resource as our first outreach to future cities where we would plant a campus.
