In the past, 10-20 years ago precisely, the concept of a “Digital church” was foreign to Nigerians and even to the world but now there has been a huge shift, now both churches both home and abroad seem to be leaving the analog way behind.
But first, before we delve even further, what is a Digital church? A Digital church is one that adapts and adopts digital tools for its purposes or church that makes use of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc to actively interact and build relationships with not just their church members but with other active internet users around the world. The digital world is a very wide space. Please note that digital churches are not restricted to only social media platforms.
We can all agree that this current generation, which is mostly made up of Millennials, are more active online than the past generations. Lucky for them, they were born in the digital era. In Nigeria, sadly, there aren’t that many digital churches, we however do have more than 5 but we would be focused on the best 5 in Nigeria at the moment.
The 5 best digital churches in Nigeria are:
RCCG City David
Located at 1, COD road, RCCG City David, which spearheads province 4 of the Redeemed Christian Church is one of the outstanding digital churches we have in Nigeria. City of David has a sizeable social media engagement presence on different platforms, not just on Facebook, Twitter but also on Instagram and youtube as well.
