LIM hosts webinar on Internet-based ministry

October 21, 2011

In the spirit of the old adage, “If you can’t beat them, join them,” Loyola University New Orleans Institute for Ministry is offering an online discussion titled, “Proclaiming the Good News in a Digital Age: Exploring Internet-Mediated Communication for Ministry.” The free webinar will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. Viewers can access the presentation by clicking here at 8 p.m., at which time the link will come active.

The webinar, presented by Loyola assistant professor of liturgy, catechesis and evangelization Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, Ph.D., explores the essential question of communicating faith in our increasingly digital culture. Zsupan-Jerome believes that practical resources for media or digital ministry are very accessible, but in exploring Internet-mediated communication for ministry, we face a more fundamental question. What is the theological foundation for engaging in ministry in the digital realm? How might we articulate a solid theological foundation for ministry that serves us for proclaiming the good news in a digital age?

Zsupan-Jerome has done extensive research on the broad use of media in Christian tradition for communicating faith. Her doctoral dissertation is titled, “Digital Media at the Service of the Word: What Does Internet-Mediated Communication Offer the Theology of Revelation and the Practice of Catechesis?”
