As part of my Ministry Formation experience here at Bethany, it's my mission this academic year to learn how the Internet can be used to build, support, grow, and empower a community of believers. I'm serving on a first of its kind church plant leadership team for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indiana planting what is known as DisciplesNet Church, an emerging church of the Indiana Disciples of Christ.
