We are a bit late with today’s post. But, late doesn’t necessarily mean that there is nothing worth talking towards.
One of the ways in which we encourage you to keep up with, and even add to, the discussion about mobile ministry is to check out the twitter hashtag #mobmin. Tweets containing the hashtag #mobmin cover everything from stats, to trends, to opportunities, to matter-of-fact items. In addition, other websites similar to MMM will use the #mobmin hashtag when they post items on their websites, Facebook, and other sites. It’s a great threading term.
Another way of keeping up with mobile ministry is to check out the MobMin.Info portal page. MobMin.Info points to websites, videos, discussions, and topics relating to mobile ministry. And does so on a page formatted specifically for mobile devices. One of the latest sections added has to do with mobile ministry videos. It’s really a solid and powerful display of what’s possible with mobile ministry. And if you are looking for an easy template to use for getting started with your mobile landing pages, the source code of the page is easy to read (with implementation supported via Modernizr and jQuery).
Lastly, check out the Mobile Ministry Forum (MMF). The MMF is a partnership of several ministries who are doing mobile ministry in various forms. Some are classic missions organizations pressing into web and mobile; some are development and business as mission organizations; some are media companies in various stages of engaging mixed-modal societies. Seriously, really neat stuff happening. Along with a yearly conference which gathers to talk about mobile ministry, ignite partnerships, and display progress in the space. As a matter of fact, the next conference is upcoming. Check out MMF for more information and to register.
It’s Sunday, and I am sure that’s enough to getting you started. Do you have websites, authors, or personalities that elp keep you up to date with mobile and other technologies relevant to ministry? If so, drop a note in the comments below, or tweet it using the hashtag #mobmin. There is much we can continue to learn and share with one another.
