Reflection on the Impact of Social Media on Church Life

In the last 30 years, scholars of ecclesiology have emphasized the lived experience of the church rooted in a time and place. In light of the emergence of social media, research fellow Jim Rice encourages thinking about ecclesiology from the perspective of its lived experience in a post-modern, digitized age. In “Models of the church and social media,” an essay written for the New Media Project at Christian Theological Seminary, Rice explores the intersection between a congregation’s inherent theology and its online practices, and reflects on the experiences of churches that go online. The essay includes questions to help stimulate personal reflection and group discussion about the ways social media shapes community life and how communities of faith can faithfully enter the online community.
