Churches are major generators of media for all ages.

In person. In print. Online. Podcasted. Streamed live or recorded. Locally and worldwide, the message of an individual church can span time and space.

Once upon a fairly recent time though, children's ministry seemed to exist in its own little bubble where components like tiny functional furniture and playground equipment topped the design checklist.

Today, AVL technology is right up there too, and rightly so. Children's ministries are beginning to be filled with the kids of digital natives. And this issue takes that into account.
