Exploring the New Frontier of Internet Campuses

A while back I asked my friend DJ Chuang, Director of Leadership Community and Digital Initiatives at Leadership Network, to shoot a video for our Leading Multisite Social Network Community and talk about the recent movement of Internet Campuses.   In this video DJ explains what an internet campuses is and some of the benefits of this new approach to ministry.  While many still question the method it’s undeniable that it’s a growing trend and reaching people in this age of social media.   Multi-site expert Jim Tomberlin speaking of the future of Internet Campus says, “It’s no longer just a megachurch phenomenon. Any tech-savvy, outreach-oriented church, regardless of size, can and will reach into cyberspace. 2010 will bring an explosion of Internet campuses”  Scroll below the video for resources on Internet Campus ministry.

Overcoming the Fear of Technology

Last night I was sitting in my livingroom in Charleston, South Carolina chatting with DJ Chuang in Orange County, California via Wetoku.  DJ is the Director of Digitial Initiatives for Leadership Network.  I asked DJ to talk to leaders about overcoming the fear of technology.  We live in a hi-tech world and that is not changing.  So as leaders we either have to adapt or be left behind.   Check out the video interview with DJ below or if you recieve this blog via email go to www.maclakeonline.com to watch.  Stop by DJ’s blog at www.djchuang.com and follow him on twitter at www.twitter.com/djchuang
