Episode 31 of How We Do Digital Ministry features Pastor Charlotte Elia, Commissioned Pastor of Holmes Presbyterian Church in Cheriton, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Pastor Charlotte and Christopher Harris talk about digital ministry within a small, rural church and all of the challenges and yes, even some advantages that entails.
"We're comparing ourselves to churches with multiple staff and multi-million dollar budgets ... what's authentic for our context? That's not our context, and that's not who we are, either. So what is it, how do we define that?" - Pastor Charlotte Elia
