The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the digital revolution faster than anyone expected. In a few weeks, faith communities around the world were thrust into developing fully digital ministries--some doing it well, and others struggling along the way. However, this moment of crisis opened the opportunity for all faith communities to reach unprecedented numbers of people and truly become ministries without walls. Yet many churches have failed to fully incorporate a digital vision into their long-term plan for ministry and have largely reverted to "in-person" programs and services because of a lack of direction on how to build high quality and sustainable digital ministries. Building Your Digital Sanctuary is an introductory guide for pastors and communications teams on how to lay the foundation of an impactful and sustainable digital sanctuary alongside your "in-person" ministries. Drawing on the wisdom of some of digital ministry experts, this practical guide will provide the inspiration and insight churches need to minister in the emerging digital age.

“This book should be required for every seminary student and anyone in ministry today. It offers a long overdue glimpse at a way forward for faith leaders in our inevitably digital world.”

—Jim Keat, digital minister, The Riverside Church



Building Your Digital Sanctuary is a book whose time has clearly come. Brandan Robertson has assembled an ecumenical cornucopia of authors whose experiences point to both the theological and practical importance of digital ministry in this age. The lessons learned, best practices, and hands-on advice makes this compilation a tremendously useful resource for church leaders now. This book is both a gift and a charge to the church for its future.”

—Freeman L. Palmer, conference minister, Central Atlantic Conference United Church of Christ



“If your call to ministry includes encountering people where they are, then it’s time to start engaging the billions of humans who are spending much of their days online. Consider Building Your Digital Sanctuary as a friendly ‘how to’ guide to bringing your call to ministry online. Written by other ministers who use language you will understand, Building Your Digital Sanctuary will give you practical tools as well as spiritual reflection on why and how the internet plays a critical role in ministry today.”

—Paul Raushenbush, president, Interfaith Alliance
