You see...content is content. But the method that is used to deliver the content must change to stay in sync with technology, trends and times. It makes no sense to use VCR's anymore...especially when you're delivering content to a streaming generation.
In many cases, churches and children's ministries are fading. Why? Is it because of their content? No. It's because the methods they are using to deliver the content are outdated. Kids and families from a streaming generation are walking in the door and looking with bewilderment at VCR ministry.
Want to know if you're a VCR ministry in a streaming world? Here's a few ways to tell.
- Is your music style from a time when VCR's were popular?
- Are your programs as complicated as programming a VCR or simple as pushing a button on an iPad?
- Are your lessons geared to meet the needs of the VCR generation or the streaming generation?
- Do you know more about the culture of VCR kids than you do of streaming kids?
