The fall issue of Outcomes is now available online. Outcomes is the quarterly magazine from the Christian Leadership Alliance.  I am highlighting this particular issue because of its focus on the use of Internet technologies by ministries.  This issue includes articles by:

As I have stated before, as Christians we need to learn how to use communication tools well, and the Internet is the greatest communication platform ever invented. Take a look at some of the articles and see what you think.
