How Your Church Can Become Digitally Relevant


According to the latest PushPay's "State of Church Tech" report, 89% of churches currently offer both online and in-person services. However, just 81% plan to continue the hybrid model next year. Unfortunately, this is the trend happening more and more with digital discipleship and evangelism offerings from Churches. However, this trend doesn't have to continue. 

Today, Vernette John-Joiles joins Tom on the podcast talking about how your Church can move forward and become more digitally relevant in your online and in-person community.
