Technology in Religious Institutions

Posted: June 27, 2017 - Blog, IT Consulting & Services

Like many non-profit (and for profit) organizations, religious institutions, such as churches, mosques or temples have evolved and adapted to the modern world of social and visual media. Religious institutions now use the most up-to-date technology to maintain operations and stay connected with their members and their community.

The latest technologies in advanced audio, projection, lighting, and special effects may be used and can be a necessity depending on the size and location of the audience. Environmental projection is also becoming very popular as you can transform a plain room into various scenery.

In addition, with the popularity of smartphones, Religious institutions now have websites and mobile apps which can be helpful in staying connected with their community. Moreover, with the convenience of social media, questions can be answered via tweets, Facebook messages and pictures from events that can be instantly shared on Instagram. Finally, by using Facebook Live, sermons can be viewed on smartphones even if one cannot attend in person.

Utilizing technology can also increase productivity in religious institutions as people are more easily reached, whether it’s due to better A/V equipment or because they received a push notification from their mobile app.
