Pastor Greg Laurie is a notable pastor (Harvest Christian Fellowship, Riverside, California) and evangelist with Harvest Crusades that has held large-scale outreaches since 1990. He was interviewed by Brendan Stark (Web Director at Harvest) in a keynote address at theCITRT (Church IT Roundtable) Regional event back in March 2014. Pastor Greg Laurie shared his value as a pastor for using technology, the Internet, and social media, and how they must be used for the ministry of the Gospel. Special thanks to CITRT and Brendan Stark for permission to post the talk on this episode of the Social Media Church podcast.

Tech note: We encountered several technical difficulties on the streaming and recording of this episode — Google+ Hangout on Air was not available minutes before our scheduled event due to YouTube maintenance?! We switched the event over toSpreecast.com, and then the audio on DJ Chuang’s computer wouldn’t work. Nils stepped right up to host the launch party, and then Jay Kranda’s computer crashed. Not to mention the bandwidth buffering and a few audio dropouts. #ugghhhh

New domain names ending in .CHURCH are part of the new Internet name space expansion beyond the currently popular .COM, .NET, and .ORG domain names. With an estimated 1,000+ new gTLDs (generic top-level domains) being launched this year and next year, the web addresses and URLs will look very different in 10 years or sooner.

Social Media Church podcast host DJ Chuang explains why .CHURCH domain names matter, how they are a huge window of opportunity and innovation for churches in the 21st century, and praying that the good guys prevail. This episode unpacks what you need to know: when, how much, why, and where to register.
