The Internet as we know it will be history and exciting changes are coming in the next 2 years. An estimated 700+ top-level domains (TLD) will be launching, like .SHOP, .WEB, .HOTEL, .MENU, and many many more.

One TLD of particular interest is .BIBLE, and when that launches, people could get domain names like PREACHING.BIBLE, STUDY.BIBLE or SOCIALMEDIA.BIBLE. Full disclosure: I, DJ Chuang, work with American Bible Society and the .BIBLE Registry.

Scott Wennermark

On this episode of Social Media Church, I’ve invited 2 key members of the .BIBLE Registry launch team from the American Bible Society, John Mark Mitchell (Director of Digital Innovation) and Scott Wennermark (Director, Strategic Advancement) to share the back story of how this came about, how the Internet will be changed forever, answer commonly-asked questions, and how you can participate in this opportunity to shape the future of the Internet. (Note: John Mark Mitchell had a new title change soon after post-production.)

On this episode of Social Media Church, I, DJ Chuang, roundup some things I’ve seen recently that point to what the future of the Internet church could look like. I think it’s still too early to call, but there are models beginning to take shape. Segments on this episode: my response to a couple of articles about how social media might shape the church, examples of network churches (organizational churches resourcing organic churches), Internet evangelism, and using Google+ Hangout on Air for online ministry.
