It’s becoming real. God is going digital.

In the Old Testament, God resided in the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 25:1-22), in a burning flame when he appeared to Moses, (Exodus 3) and then although David wanted to build him a dwelling, God prophesied that David’s son, Solomon, would be one of the greatest kings to ever lived and would build a dwelling for him. (2 Samuel 7:1-17)

Then Jesus came to earth and declared that God would send the Holy Spirit, the Counselor (or Advocate in the newer NIV versions) (John 14:26) to reside in our hearts.

And now, God is going digital. It only makes sense in a world that revolves around computers, technology, tablets, social media, online communities, spaces and services.

The first-annual "Going Digital for His Kingdom" conference will be taking place in popular cities around the U.S. to educate attendees on the significance of using social media,  and other digital marketing techniques to engage, grow and mobilize online faith communities.

The conference series will take place in Chicago (June 23-25), Washington, D.C. (August 11-13), Nashville (October 6-8), Las Vegas (November 10-12) and Miami (November 17-19).

Inspirational author and founder of the MOSAIC church in Los Angeles, Erwin McManus, will serve as the keynote speaker at the event

Because of current trends and success on the big screen—faith-based films in Hollywood—and television shows, "Going Digital for His

Kingdom" will partner with Variety’s PURPOSE Summit.
