What’s the point in the city?

25 Apr

The Gospel Coalition City that is. Unless it’s linking people locally (i.e. people already linked in their local church) what benifit can it be? Wouldn’t facebook be better, i.e. not a Christian bubble?

This is with refernce to Steff’ comment on my Twitter 3:16 post below. (Please note I’m not knocking tgc, I think that’s grea, just need someone to explain why we want thecity)

    But Don said it’s “an evangelical version of facebook”…
    Personally I’m not convinced other than that it’ll help me find people local to me… and then I imagine we’ll just add each other in facebook…

    “The City was created in response to the church’s need to improve communication, better engage with members, support small groups, build a stronger church community and free up administrative resources. ”

    then

    “The City is much more than a social network as it helps churches to solve their greatest challenges — whether it’s church planting, fundraising, developing small groups, building the global church, bolstering a sense of community or improving communications among members,”
