Producing by Faith, Inspiring through Technology

DeVon headshot (546x270)

Being a film and TV producer, author, motivational speaker, TV personality and preacher – you could say I’m a multi-tasking multi-hyphenate. But the toughest part of navigating all of these different hats isn’t time management – it’s finding a productive way to marry the traditional aspects of these vocations with a contemporary unified approach.  And I know I’m not the only one with this dilemma.

 

For many, especially in communities of faith, finding a way to remain authentic to your calling and exploring new territories of your destiny can be challenging. However, I believe today’s emerging technologies are rising to help meet this challenge head on. 

 

In a recent survey sponsored by AT&T, 41% of respondents said they use a mobile phone, tablet or laptop to connect to inspirational content or their communities of faith online. That compares to about a third who said they regularly attend a brick and mortar worship service. I think this highlights a very important cultural shift that people, like me, are discovering new ways to use technology to connect spiritually and bring cohesion to all facets of our diverse lives.

 

And while I do give traditional sermons and lead a monthly Bible study, I’ve found a way to also uplift people through my movies, TV shows, books, and especially social media. And according to AT&T’s research, people are using mobile devices in their faith practices to do things like listen to inspirational music, stream church services, study and read the Bible. These insights confirm what I already know that the masses can be inspired from our very own mobile devices.

 

As we approach the holiday season, I look forward to continuing this conversation through AT&T’s #InspiredMobility campaign. I also look forward to hearing what you have to say about the impact that technology has on your faith, spirituality, and destiny.

Technology has allowed me to be mobile while listening to my favorite spiritual leaders on Youtube, their websites etc. My faith has increased 100 percent.

I still attend church in a building. Social media is a great way to add to the time we spend with Jesus Christ our Lord! The Word follows us all day.
