Who are you?
I’m a netrovert, who would rather live on a warm island somewhere with a few close friends, but beginning to understand the necessity of cultivating relationships outside my inner circle. I am an amateur photographer, who has decided to make the steps necessary to make photography become a paying career. I am a technophile.

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
I have begun to write a blog, entitled the Justice Journey, which encourages people to live according to the principles of Micah 6:8, i.e. acting justly, loving kindness and walking humbly with God. I envision this becoming a full-fledged charitable organization that bridges the gap between people worldwide.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
Social media, Facebook and Twitter. Being more introverted in my social life, I was quite surprised to find I have 700 friends on Facebook and even stranger to have 700 followers on Twitter.

How has your faith grown or been tested through technology?
I have begun reading blogs by other Christians. My perspective has been broadened by listening to the voices of single women, single moms, pastors, and in general, people different from me, but still family.

Who are you?
I am a son of the Lord, a husband, and a father of three children with one on the way. I spend my workdays helping children with autism improve the quality of their lives, and spend my evenings enjoying time with my family.

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
While I do not have any website or program to showcase, I have spent approximately six years serving as technology support manager where I am employed. I am the “computer guy” that everyone goes to for any and all problems tech-related. As well, when I am away from work, I love explore and experiment with the latest gadgets available.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
The technology that has impacted me the most, at least in recent memory, must be cloud computing. Thanks to this advancement, I am able to satisfy most, if not all, of my job tasks throughout the week. Being able to, “go to the cloud,” takes so much of the worry away. Also, having the ability to collaborate with co-workers online has saved the day more than I want to admit.

How has your faith grown or been tested through technology?
Absolutely it has grown through technology. For example, I currently have several different Bible apps on my iPad that offer so much in the way of additional images, maps, timetables and such that really help me see more clearly what might have been going on during Jesus Christ’s ministry on Earth.

Who are you?
I’m a dad, a husband, a son and a brother. I work with organizations, often churches and non-profits, to improve the ways they use technology to organize, communicate, and do meaningful work.

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
The church can use these tools and resources to practice the Gospel in their own backyards and across the world. If I can be part in helping to make that happen, I’ve done my job.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
Social media, coupled with content management systems like Joomla and WordPress make for a powerful communications platform.

How has your faith grown or been tested through technology?
Social media in particular has made me think more creatively about community in general, but particularly communities of faith.

Online resources like www.sacredspace.ie and www.d365.org/todaysdevotion give me the opportunity to take some time for spiritual growth and development whenever I get a few free minutes.

Who are you?
Sinner saved by grace, Presbyterian, husband, father, son, industrial engineer, computer nerd, technologist, PhD, academic, teacher, learner, systems thinker, and book lover

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
As a Christian and an engineer, I seek to learn what God has revealed in His word about how we are to create and use technology. I apply this to the various digital technologies I interact with (and create) every day. Also, I train future K-12 teachers to teach their student how to use and think about digital technology

What website or technology has impacted you most?
I suppose you mean besides electricity, indoor plumbing, and book publishing? Probably my first computer, which was a Tandy Color Computer 2. It was my first chance to really explore computers, programming, and graphic creation that started me on my fascination with digital technology.

How has your faith grown or been tested through technology?
The internet certainly does both. We can access so many writings, art, seminary classes, and friends and acquaintances to uplift us and strengthen our faith. It is also a source of great temptation, not just in lust or greed, but in its temptation to waste our time seeking the new and exciting rather than be present with our families and neighbors.

Who are you?
I’m the Director of Interactive Technology at Woodlands Church and Kerry Shook Ministries. Prior to going into full-time ministry, I worked as a Product Manager at Hewlett-Packard.

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
I have the privilege of helping our church leverage technology and the internet to accomplish our mission of “helping people experience Christ rather than man’s creation of religion, so they can grow strong in Christ and take the Christ experience to the world.”

My team at Woodlands Church is responsible for a number of areas including web design, web development, Church Online, social media, digital media, and eCommerce.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
Google Reader & Twitter are two technologies that have had a major impact on me. Over the past several years, these two tools have helped me discover, learn from, and connect with so many incredible leaders. I’m inspired and encouraged daily by all the people who are doing so many amazing things in business, non-profits, and the church.

Others technologies that I continue to be excited about for the church are…

Streaming Video: I lead Woodlands Church Online and I get to see the message of Christ being streamed to thousands in our community, across the US, and around the world.

Mobile Computing: more and more people are accessing our content via mobile devices. Mobile has become a larger part of our overall online strategy.

Digital versions of the Bible:  I believe that the free, digital access to the Bible on many devices in many languages via tools like YouVersion will continue to have a major, worldwide impact.

How has your faith grown or been tested through technology?
My faith has certainly grown because of technology. I have benefited greatly from all of the spiritual resources that are now available online.

Technology and the internet also present a great challenge for me. I spend a lot of time online because it is my passion, my ministry, and my job, so I have to be very careful about spending too much time online and negatively impacting my most important relationships.
