Ministry in Digital Spaces exists to empower students and faculty to pursue the Kingdom of God in Digital Spaces.

Using our social presence well is a part of evangelism, of living out our faith, and of being a disciple of Jesus in 2015.  Our social tools give us additional ways to connect with friends on campus. We need to use them well.
