On this episode of Social Media Church, hear a conversation with Dan Hickling, Internet Pastor at Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale‘s Web Campus. He describes how they facilitate an online worship experience that builds relationships and fosters discipleship, how they measure success, and why they don’t treat everyone the same online. He describes all this in such great detail, it’s almost like a play-by-play off of the run sheet. You can tell he’s a pastor and a teacher.
