New Media Project

The New Media Project aims to help religious leaders think theologically about digital technology.

We think leaders need more than primers in building websites and using social media tools. We believe that leaders of faith communities also need a larger interpretive framework for recognizing and evaluating what’s happening in communication today.

Even though the major shift in patterns and tools of communication brought about by digital technology will have a lasting effect on the church, compelling theological interpretations of the shift have not yet been adequately developed. Nor do sufficient strategic frameworks yet exist to help faith communities move forward using technology in theologically responsible ways.

The New Media Project aims to change that. Its purpose is to help the church interpret theologically the massive changes in communication and technology occurring today and to create a constructive framework to help pastors and religious leaders employ new digital media in ways that strengthen faith communities.

The New Media Project is one of five programs of the Center for Pastoral Excellence at Christian Theological Seminary.
