In 1994, the worldwide web was first announced to the public. Along came email, Google, Wikipedia, and online stores. Then in 2004, Facebook came onto the scene, later followed by Twitter in 2006. When Apple revolutionized the mobile phone industry with its release of the first iPhone in 2007, things really exploded.
Today, there are more than 6.8 billion cell phone subscriptions worldwide—nearly one for every person on the planet. Media is now a part of everyday life, whether we like it or not. We must be intentional to avoid its many pitfalls.
Over the last five months, we conducted a media survey targeting young, conservative Anabaptists. We trust it will provide concrete statistics for the leaders and pastors of our churches and will encourage greater accountability.
Have any questions or comments? Interested in a template for conducting the survey at your own church? We would love to hear from you! Leave your comments at the bottom of the page.
