Using Computers, PowerPoint, Video & More to Teach the Bible
In a "high tech, low touch" world, teachers need to consider ways to implement technology but they also need to remember the primary purpose -- to help people "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
- They will grow in grace in the context of community as personal relationships are built.
- They will grow in knowledge as the Word is kept central.
Technology must be seen as supplemental and never a replacement for these vital elements.
