Around this point, barring anything having happened to me while on the road in the past 24 hours, we’re almost starting with a presentation titled From the Toilet to the Pulpit at The Geek Fest (at Central Piedmont Community College, Charlotte, NC, USA).
You might be interested in following along with the presentation, and as our usual methods, you can view the slide deck here.
For those of you keeping up with our previous talks, there’s some repeat of some of the items in this deck. For the offline discussion, things are more tuned towards the topic title. Do feel free to offer comments and feedback via Twitter (put @mobileminmag in your comments so that we can easily/quickly see it).
Coming off an extended holiday weekend (for those of us in the USA), its great to have a video like this one from Bobby Gruenwald (LifeChurch.TV) at Q to help reset our perceptions towards the interesection of faith and technology and what our response to life and environment (context) can look around it.
Note: I’ll embed this in when I’m able to get the direct link to the video; Q doesn’t give me a direct URL to embed here.
As stated a few days ago, MMM is attending the 2011 ICCM Conference. This conference is a collection of IT-oriented individuals who use or would like to use their talents in information tech to serve missional needs.
To contribute to the effort, we were there to speak on mobile ministry. Specifically, our presentation Definition and Contexts of Mobile (in) Ministry was aimed to help set some more perspective towards the opportunities and challenges of using mobile technology in ministry efforts.
Compared to previous presentations, this was a good bit shorter as we also participated in a panel discussion immediately after on issues related to mobile ministry with representatives from GRN and CyberMissions. Topics covered in the panel included exciting/feared new tech, how to select a smartphone platform, and how cloud services impact mobile.
Check out the presentation and also follow the discussion on Twitter (#ICCM). Stay tuned for a full recap and sketchnote graphics a few days after ICCM concludes.

This is a piece that was written for the BibleTech Conference blog: A Technologist Living Outside of the Silos. Its a thinking piece – or a motivational one – you’d have to come to BibleTech to hear this one
Via The Digital Sanctuary:
Dallas Theological Seminary’s Center for Christian Leadership is hosting Shane Hipps, author of Flickering Pixels (my review), for a one day conference in Dallas called The Electronic Gospel: How Technology Shapes Our Faith on February 8th, 2010… John Dyer will lead one on controlling technology in our daily lives, Scott McClellan of Collide Magazine will lead a session on social media, and Bill Buchanan of Irving Bible Church will lead one on technology in the worship service.
This looks like a great conference. Don’t see MMM going as there’s a scheduling conflict (and poor planning on my part), but we will try and get some coverage of it from various vantage points.
