INFORMATION, COMMUNICATION & TECHNOLOGY IN DEEPER 

CHRISTIAN LIFE MINISTRY 

Vision (where we are going) is very important in whatever we are doing as individuals or as a non-profit religious 

organization. We also need to clarify our mission (what we will do) to ensure we can achieve our vision. Achieving 

heaven’s goal of world evangelization is the vision of the church currently and we all need to strive towards it. 

This is how we intend to do so:

Vision

1. Support the regular measurement of progress towards achieving heaven’s goal of world evangelization 

2. Use data and information to inform or support leadership actions and decisions

3. Prepare for a future in which many worshippers will participate in church programs from home/online and 

pay their tithes and offering via electronic means.

Mission:

Youth, Campus and Children etc)

2. Regular update of the church database to ensure accuracy and reliability of information being generated

Action:

MRS, HCF, SHSF, CFC etc) into the online database (dclmhub.com)

2. Support the effective analysis of the data church programs and activities to indicate gaps (absentees), trends 

(declining or increasing church attendance) etc.

3. Use the data on telephone contacts of visitors to facilitate followup and relationship building with invitees 

and guests

4. Use the database of visitors/guests in inviting people for special programs (Retreats, Monthly Programmes, 

Crusades etc)

5. Use the database of telephone numbers to establish WhatsApp platform to nourish and strengthen the 

converts and challenge the visitors

6. Annual update and analysis of Church Member Biodata with summary information or recommendations for 

implementation at District, Group, Old-district, Regional, State and National levels.
