Texting In Church – Pastor Approved

Texting In Church

Today was my first experiment with interactive preaching, at least with texting.

I have done surveys in the past that have worked well, where people turned in cards and ushers quickly sorted but could be a hassle.

Today I had people text in to my Google Voice account their answer to the question:  If you could describe Jesus in one sentence to someone what would it be.  Like a tagline.  Nike: Just do it.  Subway: Eat fresh.  Jesus:  _________________

I received 40 texts over the three services.  Got some good input that I used during the message, and people felt more connected to the message.

The texts above are from our video operator, Jacob.  He sent in multiple entries over the course of the three services.
