What is Web 2.0?

The term "Web 2.0" is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with each other as contributors to the website's content, in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them. Examples of Web 2.0 include web-based communities, hosted services, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups, and folksonomies.(Wikipedia)

Why is Web 2.0 important for ministry?

Web 2.0 has been integrated into the life of today's generation. People use the web as a way to communicate and interact with others from around the world or next door. Web 2.0 allows your ministry to reach individuals in a unique way that is part of their everyday life. People can participate in discussions, watch videos, and build relationships. This allows people to stay more connected to the church body while opening the door for new people to become involved in the life of the church. This also allows people to continuously learn new information in an environment where they are comfortable and free to learn and ask questions.
