Impact of ( ICT) Information and Communication Technology in Enhancing Quality Worship and Impact Church Development in the Twenty First Century

ABSTRACT

The last two decades has seen the adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) in contemporary church communications for growth. Contemporary church communications for growth is taking phenomenally great strides. However, adoption levels vary across countries, church groups, church budgets, and with the increasing threat to mass gathering by insurgencies, the rate of adoption will further increase. The purpose of the study was to investigate the information and communication technologies (ICT) resources in use in these churches and the constraints being experienced in the use of these resources. It studies the adoption of ICT in contemporary church communication for growth in Nigeria. It analyzes the perception of church leaders on internet usage for church growth programmes, adoption of electronic mails, telephone and virtual learning environment for communication as well as the deployment of church ICT infrastructure for church worship, administration and human capital management. With the increasing internet bandwidth intensity and teledensity in Nigeria, the paper attempts to identify potential structural shift in church growth and communication strategy.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY                  

At the heart of the Christian Gospel is the God who longs to communicate with the created order. The incarnation of Christ illustrates the lengths to which the God of love was willing to go to enable that. The Gospel writers present Jesus as an expert in communication who used signs, symbols and words most effectively to deliver the message about God’s Kingdom. At Pentecost the power of the Holy Spirit enabled the Church to communicate by speaking in languages that people understood.

Speaking in languages that can be understood is still our task today. The Churches in our society has been slow to realise that the way we communicate the Gospel needs to change because those unfamiliar with church culture often find our methods unintelligible. Perhaps this is because our ways have changed very little, whilst things around us have moved on at a phenomenal rate. We now find ourselves in a situation where the influence of Christianity upon society is drastically reduced, even compared with just a few generations ago.

Many inside the Church lament this, but what is needed, as a response from the Church, is not lament, rather an understating of how this has happened and how to remedy it. In part, the answer lies in our mode of communication. At one time the Church had a huge audience who are captivated by activities and programme of the church that they do not bother looking elsewhere. Now our ‘audience’ has many other options and has found them more attractive. But perhaps people are no less open to the ideas of others; in fact modern media advertising would suggest that with the right tools they can be influenced in a very dramatic ways indeed.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Generally, the featuring, the interest and the participation of the church members in church programmes in this entertainment and technology age has dropped to a low level, and the performance of the pastor as well in church management is a far cry from meeting the standard of modern technology which is sweeping the entire world. There has been an increasing awareness by those concerned with church leadership that present method of gospel preaching and church worship has not been very successful and effective in the pursuit goal of the Great Commission.

It is a well known fact that information technology is the engine that is driving the 21st century world, and dictating and influencing the speed of development and impact on all aspect of the global life presently. Information technology has redefined human interest and is determining the pace and rate of information presentation and dissemination worldwide. Yet most of our churches are still struggling with old and traditional method of church worship settings and church administration that there has been a serious generational gap that we are failing in using better communication methods and creating exciting worship atmosphere. These failures have contributed to quests for new administrative and communication methods in the wake of technological breakthrough of the western world, and the present day affordability of computer and computer related digital gadgets.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

The purpose of the study is to explore the impact of Information and communication technology when used in all parts of the Church in the furtherance of the Church’s mission and improve in its administration in the 21st century, such as

  • The impact of multimedia technology on the congregation and the pastor.
  • The impact of multimedia technology on church development and growth

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

We live in a generation of great knowledge explosion and intellectual awareness. Thus the pastor has the enormous task of meeting up with the demand of ministering with a measure of enlightenment and illumination among his congregation that reflects the information age we are in. Also, the society we live in presently is digitally driven, and thus, the pastor, and the church in the 21st century must attempt to move with the pace of modern ICT technology to meet up with the demand of reaching the world with the glorious gospel in most exciting way, otherwise it will not be able to reach particularly, the younger generation.
