It’s funny, but I am often considered a technology native because of the website and my collaborations with ReBuildMyChurch… but I often feel like a tecjnology immigrant who often shows up to the table a little late.
If you have not checked out Google+ yet, please take this as an encouragement to do exactly that. The hangout function allows you to meet without the mileage. This will not replace the value of face-to-face meetings, BUT can bolster contact over time.
I have been watching the Youth Cartel’s coaching program from afar, and wondering how that model could work locally. I’m still noodling it, but will be intentional about understanding google+ hangouts with the stratagy of making it a component of such an effort. And, if you are about supporting others in ministry, you might consider the same.
