The Sharing Economy, The Sharing Church
"Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need." - Acts 4:32-35
Imagine a repository of Christian resources that can be shared and used for God any time. How can we share what we have with one another? Churches and missional organisations can then focus on people, where we can value people for who they truly are. Content and other needs need not be a bottle neck anymore.
Sharing could be about:
a) Events, Venues, Amenities
b) Collaborative Devotions, Bible-Reading Plans, Christian Materials, Commentaries such as Church History, Life of Jesus, etc.
c) People for Missions: Connecting like-minded people for various Christian Projects (NGOs and VWOs such as Tamar Village, Focus Family, etc)
d) Data Repository: For digital strategy, data is important. How can we get aggregated sources of data that will help us measure the various diverse solutions? Accurate sources of data are required to make accurate assessments of the challenges faced in the ministry, in order to create the most impact.
e) Funds Transparency: How can we help missionaries establish accountability through blockchain or other technology? How can we spread fairly the distribution of missional funds? For example, when we sponsor a discipleship training material from IDMC to another young church plant in Mongolia, we would be able to know where the money is going to and what it is used for.
e) Others (feel free to ideate and discuss)
