Many church leaders want to respond by sharing the Gospel with as many people as they can. They are not interested in developing an online ministry, because it seems irrelevant in light of these events. In fact, they believe that churches should abandon expensive technologies and get back to the basics and purity of the Gospel message. Unfortunately, these good intentions are not necessarily the best strategy to reach as many people as possible.
