QR Codes & Smartphones Make For Smart Ministry

Recently the news has focused on how the use of smartphones has given a wake-up call to politicians as the phones have been instrumental changing politics in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. But smartphones are not only toppling powerful dictators. Recently they also have been reported to have deposed another unchallenged king of the mountain: the personal computer.

Technology researchers reported that smartphone shipments surpassed PC shipments in the past quarter. Now some ministry leaders are getting the call to create smart phone outreach using mobile websites and bar code scanners. New Quick Response (QR) barcode technology is revolutionizing communications, and many churches are deciding it is wise for ministers to incorporate the smart phone into their outreach planning.


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
