Seeing both the “I” and “US” in iCampus

One of the first thoughts people express when you talk about an online church or iCampus is how individualistic it might be. The first conclusions tend to head toward assuming technology doesn’t lend itself to connect people with each other.

But the true power of the Internet is aggregation of individuals. The real effect comes into play as more and more individuals who may normally never meet each other or even be aware of each other’s existence are brought together for common purposes. It’s a network after all, not billions of separated silos.

We are called to worship God together with the body of Christ, not alone in a corner. And if you take another look at the potential for using the Internet to bring together all who are yearning for greater purpose in their lives, to be encouraged by others and also encourage others as well, you’ll simply be amazed.

Liquid Church in NJ is taking this vision and putting it into action with the launch of their own official church iCampus in January.

Perfect for the New Year and new beginnings, why not try something new on January 11 and jump online to join in iWorship at the Liquid Church iCampus?

Current plans include digital hosts in each room, live prayer rooms where your personal spiritual needs can be met, and live video-based (multiple webcams) small group Bible study meetings online.

Pastor Dave Adamson heads up the iCampus at Liquid.  An example of the potential for this medium himself, he moved from Australia to New Jersey after connecting with Liquid from the other side of the planet!
