What I Belive is Next for Online Churches (2 of 3)

Since last year’s release of my ebook “The Art of Online Ministry“, I’ve connected with countless church leaders and volunteers.  You’re all very passionate about connecting with people who are unwilling or unable to attend a local church, and it’s fun hashing out plans to try to make our approaches even more effective for God’s glory. Every good leader has blind spots, though, and I think it would be wise for us to lift our heads from our work at this time and look around to gain perspective.

After reading today’s question, feel free to reply here, on my Facebook page, or via Twitter.

Today we’ll discuss Question 2:

2) Are there trends as to what is NOT working in our online churches?

I’d wager that if you see an issue in your online church there are many other church leaders sensing the same.  It’s time to face these sticky situations head-on so we can all get unstuck.

I’ll get the ball rolling: I’ve heard from a few of you that getting volunteers to commit and small groups to form are two issues.  Is this true for you?

PS – Did you miss yesterday’s discussion on Question 1: How do we gather passionate church online leaders in a global network to learn from each other?

Don’t miss tomorrow’s post!  I’m asking a significant question about the single most important opportunity I believe we all need to maximize.

    I have experienced some challenges in the area of volunteer commitment. I honestly feel that a large part of the responsibility is on myself, that I have not expressed expectations and communicated vision clearly enough to garner true buy-in. That’s something I’m working on going forward.

      Amanda, is it possible people commit less seriously because it’s online?
