In the sixth episode of How We Do Digital Ministry, Pastor Paul Amlin of Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Dubuque, Iowa shares news ideas and examples of how digital ministry “tries” have been received in his congregation and beyond.
“We have to be willing to say, ‘our expectations for people can’t necessarily be that everybody is going to follow our rubric’ and be there on Sunday morning at whatever time … how do we nurture the gift of faith in people, and continue to engage people throughout the week, where they are.”
