The three co-authors are all with the Indianapolis Center for Congregations which has since its inception in 1997 "worked with over 400 congregations around the issue of congregations and technology". "In this book we're going to use what we have learned to help you explore how your congregation can use technology. ... We will help you design technology uses that fit with your ministry and mission. Our goal is Godly service -- not technological glitz. Still, it's obvious that there's no question that your congregation is going to use computer technology. The only question is `how ?'." -- Preface, pp. x, xi.
