An interesting observation….

I visit many churches as part of my role with NNYM. They have been different denominations and sizes, but a pattern emerges as churches adopt technology such as PowerPoint and other presentation software. The really small churches tend to have the pastor running it from up front, while seeking others to operate it as they are trained.

The medium sized churches have people fulfilling that role, but the pastor is seeking to take back the control to run it from the front in one way or another. It is usually a question like “is there a way I can have a remote up here to manually advance slides?”…

The large churches have a team of people and a pastor that has delegated that control to the team to let them do their ministry.

What have you seen in your area? What do you think about this pattern?
