Nils Smith was there from practically day one, diving into Church Online when the social media platform of choice was MySpace (yes, Myspace).

Nils is really good at reading, anticipating culture... and where he ends up in this conversation is a rich, deep view of the past while setting up churches (big and small) with a strong opportunity for the future. How can a small church compete with the big churches? What could a Digital Church Planter look like?
