Church: Tech Wasteland

Many adults and teens would like to receive guidance from their churches on media and technology, a Barna Group study revealed. The problem is, most of them aren’t getting any.

The study shows that most parents and tweens/teens (children ages 11 to 17) expect churches to address technology, but “most families are not getting any coaching or assistance when it comes to integrating technology into their family life.”

“Technology is shaping family interactions in unprecedented ways, but we seem to lack a strategic commitment to the stewardship of technology,” Barna Group President David Kinnaman says in a report explaining the results.

So… is the church missing the boat here.  Do parents really want to hear advice on technology from the church?  Should the church be helping people navigate the computer/tech world.  Why or why not?
