Jason is quoted in this KDAF-TV news video, Tweeting in Church, iPad Bibles Now Common For Worship: North Texas, Nation’s Churches Go High Tech To Reach Congregations (4/23/12):
At the Potter’s House in Dallas it’s Jason Caston’s job to stay on top of trends.
“Basically my job is to take whatever new technology is out there, and for the most part they`re very low cost, and make sure the ministry is able to utilize them,” said Potter`s House Social Media & Mobile Developer Jason Caston.
The Potter’s House uses Facebook, Twitter and even Pinterest to connect with its congregation. They also stream services live on iPhone, iPad and android.
“We have our first app coming down the line for the Pastors and Leaders conference that`s coming up in about two weeks and then after that we`ll have your TDJakes.org app and then your Potter`s House app,” said Caston.
