Digital Transformation and Ministry Course

This space is to share and discuss open resources for a summer 2020 course on Digital Transformation and Ministry at Seattle Pacific Seminary. I’ll be adding resources before, during, and after the course. Feel free to reply with ideas and feedback.

Catalog Description: This course explores digital strategies churches are using to transition and transform ministry though and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. This exploration will include case studies, theological reflection on the accelerated digital transformation of our lives and world, and a framework for designing contextually-appropriate church digital transformation plans.

Will the class be focused on church-oriented ministry or other kinds of ministry as well?

The focus is on congregational ministry, but concepts and practices are transferable to other ministry contexts.

Key resources for the course:

Thanks for asking–I think it went well. Next week we’ll be working on church digital transformation plans, as described in this Digital Wisdom post.


Here is the template we used for creating church digital transformation plans:

Are there example digital transformation plans that could be shared here too? How did the template work out? Any interesting learnings?
