    The eShift The eShift is the latest book by David A. Posthuma, published by CLC Publications of Philadelphia, PA.

    The eShift addresses the decline of Attractional Church, and the rise of the Internet-Influenced Church. For the past fourty years, North American churches have conducted their services largely in a manner influenced by television cultural values. However, young adults today prefer the internet culture over the television culture. This cultural preferance radically impacts how corporate worship and Biblical instruction takes place, now and in the future.

LEONARD SWEET: "Ever wonder what it was like to have been on the ground floor with Jeff Bezos of Amazon or Pierre Omidyar of ebay.com? Wonder no longer. Join David A Posthuma of E-Church Essentials.com and hold on - the future is forming right before your eyes and under your feet".

LEONARD SWEET REVIEWS DAVID'S BOOK, eSHIFT: "I expect this book to stir controversy, but of the best sort: eye-opening and mind-altering perspectives on what it might mean for the church to embrace the Internet today as the primary delivery system for learning and faith development as our Protestant ancestors adopted the book as their primary delivery system in the Reformation Church." Leonard Sweet, best-selling author and professor (Drew University, George Fox University), and chief contributor to sermons.com

What is the E-Church Network offered by E-Church Essentials, LLC?

In 2002, David A Posthuma began work on the world's first true eMinistry platform called: "The E-Church Network". The E-Church Network is an all-inclusive, full featured, browser-based, online ministry software system designed to extend relational ministry from your local church, into the global mission field. The philosophy behind the E-Church Network is to provide at least one integrated software module for each mission-directive the New Testament ascribes to Christ's Church...with one exception, David could not discern how to baptise online...which is evidence that eMinistry will never surplant the local church congregation. However, eMinistry tools can help extend the local church's global impact for Christ in a way that was never before possible.

Since that time, the E-Church Network has undergone numerous system upgrades. The E-Church Network remains one of the most feature-rich ministry platforms designed specifically for use by churches and para-church organizations. You can get started with global ministry now, simply register your church with the E-Church Network, click-on: Register Now.

The E-Church Network by E-Church Essentials,LLC is designed specifically for ease-of-use by pastors and church staff...there is no need for a webmaster to manage your online ministry. David A Posthuma also includes two FREE hours of staff training to help your church launch your online ministry successfully.
