Upcoming Event

The Body of Christ, the Church, is not positioned or established to be a reactionary force to change or innovation; if anything at all, we should be the pioneer, charting new frontiers. The tectonic plate is shifting, and never in the history of humanity have there been so many tools and inventions that keep redefining the way we live, work, and most importantly, how we serve God. AI is not a bluff, and to dismiss Machine intelligence as just a mere Apocalyptic tool, is an insult to our collective intelligence as a stakeholder of Faith. 


There are already uses cases of AI infusion with religion, from Church services conducted in the metaverse and people giving their life to Christ as avatars to robots taking sermons with a commendable level of accuracy and precision, even if it has its downside. The prudence of wisdom and strategic foresight is to use existing data and experimentation to predict and plan for what is coming. 


Let’s not miss the forest for the trees; ChatGPT is just one of many tools. But all of these will be discussed in the Masterclass. So, what should you expect to learn in this Masterclass? 

  1. A real-time demonstration of various Ai tools that will help you optimize and drive performance
  2. The ethics around the use of artificial intelligence within the religious space
  3. The theological and philosophical implications of Ai
  4. Developing an AI implementation strategy for the Church 
  5. Harnessing AI for data-driven decision making in the Church

Joining me is Tersia Voskuil. Tersia is a member of Mensa International. She holds a Master’s of Divinity, a theologian and a counsellor.

I'm deeply inspired and motivated by your article. I'm planning on starting my own business for a long time now. My delay in starting was my concern about people's feedback, and your article has truly restored my mindset on people's feedback. You laid out so many factors which I really needed to be motivated with my business plan will definitely cut out this article and meditate on it daily.

Daniel has this unique way of engaging the audience, as much as they could audible respond, it felt like they were having a conversation. This is one of the important elements of a TEDx talk, and he nailed it.
