In the coming weeks Greg Mathias, Associate Director of the Center for Great Commission Studies, and Sam Morris, Electronic Marketing Specialist at SEBTS, will discuss the links between the Great Commission and social media. Here’s an excerpt of their first post:
Thanks to social media, news and events move at a break-neck speed. Think of the Arab Spring, Ferguson, or other current events and movements in which Twitter, Facebook, and other social media connections caused a tipping point of awareness and engagement. We are in a new age of communication, the digimodern age according to Alan Kirby, where social media is often the kindling of a growing fire.
In light of these cultural shifts, Electronic Marketing Specialist at SEBTS, Sam Morris and I began a conversation on The Great Commission and the Digimodern Age. Involvement in missions means you care about areas like communication, contextualization, and culture. Sam and I feel this conversation is one that needs more attention. Over the next few months, we hope to unpack the various questions and layers of this topic.
