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.
