  • TechMission Launches new online Master's Degree in Science, Technology, Society and Ministry

    TechMission’s City Vision College was recently approved to provide an accredited online Master’s Degree in Science, Technology, Society and Ministry (http://www.cityvision.edu/mstsm). The first course in Theology of Technology starts on April 17th.

     

    For those who need help covering the cost of tuition, they have also developed a Tech Ministry Intern Fellowship.  

  • If anyone is dealing with "mission information" itself as well as the "technology for mission", you may be interested in the Community of Mission Information Workers.  We now have a website www.globalCMIW.org and a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GlobalCMIW

  • If anyone needs advice on IT or running an Internet cafe in a developing country then please ask.
  • I've been involved in a group called the Polder Consortium for a while now.

     

    The Polder Consortium helps organizations establish environments of trust for sharing critical information across organizational boundaries. Recognizing that a single shared system is not always the best method of engaging in data sharing partnerships, the Polder Consortium is focused on providing additional models for data sharing and collaboration among organizations. Our efforts are designed to support interoperation where desired and independence where required.

     

    It's a Wycliffe Global Alliance initiative, but the aim is to include people from other missions. A couple of people from New Tribes are involved in the technical steering group that I'm involved in.

    Why not have read what it says on the site and see if this could help your organisation?

We need something with longevity (a big ask) and decent support, preferably developed with mission in mind.Can we get a conversation going around this topic?We are currently looking at a system developed by Worldwide Lab Improvement in Michigan, USA (www.wwlab.org). It looks promising and affordable.

Technology & Mission

Two questions for 'technologists' to ponder: What is behind the human need for more information and knowledge? Is it ultimately to know the divine or to replace Him (become omniscient ourselves)? How do you think those who don’t believe in God view this? What is behind the need for humans to be more connected? Is it ultimately to connect with the divine or to connect to the whole world without needing Him (become omnipresent ourselves)? How do you think those who don’t believe in God view this?…
