In the midst of this pandemic, we're taking a moment to talk with one of the pioneers of the Church Online movement. Nils Smith was there from practically day one, diving into Church Online when the social media platform of choice was MySpace (yes, Myspace). This conversation is unique in that Nils isn't a a technology expert, at his own declaration.
Nils is really good at reading, anticipating culture... and where he ends up in this conversation is a rich, deep view of the past while setting up churches (big and small) with a strong opportunity for the future.
How can a small church compete with the big churches? What could a Digital Church Planter look like? All this centered around a virtual coffeeshop conversation on the past, and the future, of church online.
