Because I play within the church’s media circle, I can say a thing or two about the growth and development of that institution especially in tech adoption, multimedia, and creative arts.
The church has a distrust of the big global media corporates and their backers. That’s why if Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and Instagram shuts everyone out today. Christ Embassy members will remain connected to one another because we developed alternatives apps to each of them.
I know so many street kids that were picked from Monkey Village then and transformed into either multimedia gurus or nerds today.
About 8 years ago, the church ran a project by challenging young people to develop apps they think would be beneficial to the church, and hefty prize money was made available for top three winners. This fired young people and gave them platform to grow in tech. Some of them are today working with some global tech players.
As someone who’s exposed to international conferences, Christ Embassy conference registration is light years ahead of both that of the UN and World Bank.
We created an app called KingsPass which ensures registration is done online and a QR code sent to your phone with that you self scanned into the auditorium.
I know the depth of contributions Christ Embassy has made in my life and thousands of others across the world, and I have had the opportunity to attend services in Christ Embassy churches in 38 countries to know how near perfect that franchise is across cultures.
As someone with deep distrust of purveyors of global capitalism. I agree with most of the Pastor’s concerns about transnational corporates.
