Missional Tech Trends


About This Report

Drones have been popularized and developed for civilian and commercial use over the last couple decades for two primary purposes: delivery and data gathering. As prices fall and regulations shift, the drone industry continues to specialize, and that specialization includes ministry goals. Ministries have unique needs and biblical values that will drive their approaches and adoption.

To leverage new opportunities, ministries will need to coordinate human resources to manage drones’ technical and logistical needs. Like any computer, drones present risks and hurdles as well. We also explore how drones might reframe the gospel and our postures to prayer. Explore how drones could fit into your ministry’s work.
