Podcast review: “TheoTech”

"The TheoTech podcast offers a glimpse of what a Pentecost-inspired church can look like, and how technology is helping to make that happen."

Hosted by Chris Lim 

At the intersection of technology and theology lies the question of how churches and Christ-followers should react to ever-changing advances. Artificial Intelligence, ethics, entrepreneurialism, and evangelism are the topics discussed in the TheoTech podcast. Over the course of three years and 40 conversations, the TheoTech podcast offers a glimpse of what a Pentecost-inspired church can look like, and how technology is helping to make that happen. 

For a launching place, I recommend season four episode “How to Start a Multilingual Church” Featuring Chris Sicks who pastors One Voice Fellowship, a congregation in Falls Church, Virginia that uses language technology to transform its connection with the neighborhood it serves. Another conversation – featuring Rev. Eliana Maxim, co-executive presbyter of Seattle Presbytery – tackles the topic of digital transformation of church governance, and its long-term impact on the missional work of the church. 

The TheoTech podcast is hosted by Chris Lim, founder of spf.io, a translation and accessibility tool that helps churches welcome those of all languages. Chris also leads Project Pentecost, a suite of resources designed to help churches navigate difficult conversations and move towards a multilingual and multicultural future. If you’re interested in how emerging technologies – including artificial intelligence (AI), crypto currencies and digital transformation – will affect ministry in the near future, this podcast is a great place to start.
