Episode 169 – The Realities Of Online Church, Online Ministry, and In Person Impact With Nils Smith

Episode sponsored by

The last month has been an incredibly insightful ride. It has essentially been a masterclass in ministry leadership. Today, we take it a step further and invite Nils Smith to the podcast to discuss his insight, wisdom, stories, and some laughter around the most current ideas of online church, what online ministry has been in the past and what it could look like in the future, and just as important, what in person ministry may need to look like in the future.

After serving for more than a decade in full-time ministry, Nils began to support ministries, nonprofit organizations and small businesses as a digital marketing and ministry consultant. He has also had the privilege of being a partner in several technology startup companies, including Mere Technology and Amplify Social Media.
