Take The Survey: State Of AI In Churches

We have put together a comprehensive survey exploring the unfolding role of AI across church operations and activities today and in the years ahead. 

Together, we can identify the challenges, gauge training needs, and gain insights on personal perspectives regarding AI in ministry contexts. 

Will you help us map the modern AI landscape in the Church – to guide progress responsibly?

National Survey Topics Include —

  • Perceived pros/cons of AI integration
  • Current applications and experiments
  • Obstacles around adoption
  • Data/bias/job concerns and safeguards
  • Envisioning future improvements
  • Education and training gaps
  • Personal hopes and hesitations

Results will be published at the Exponential Global Conference in March 2024. Participants will receive the survey report via email when available.

This survey is being facilitated by Exponential’s AI NEXT and additional national partners including ChurchTechToday.com, AI for Church Leaders.com, and Gloo.

AI learning is just a click away.

It’s easy to move from intimidation into innovation.

In today’s world, not embracing AI isn’t playing it safe; it’s stalling the future. The good news is that as a church leader, you don’t have to be a techie to leverage AI; it’s more about embracing a culture of learning and adaptability. And AI NEXT is here to help.

With the current AI revolution we’re living through, productivity, ethics, job evolution, privacy, and security — all of these things aren’t side notes; they’re the main plot.  And the Church — your church — has the opportunity to explore the issues that matter thoughtfully, formulate your own contextualized approaches, and find ways to develop more disciples in your own community.

AI NEXT is here to help you navigate this disruptive force that Church leaders must be prepared to address going forward. Join us!
