Is Artificial Intelligence bad? Dangerous? Should believers be concerned about AI? Is it wrong for pastors and churches to use AI?
Steele Billings is the head of AI at Gloo. He’s a seasoned professional in faith tech echosystems. He’s committed to leveraging technology to fulfill God’s purpose.
We threw all our questions at him and quite honestly he got us pretty excited about the opportunities with AI to help people take their next step in their walk with Jesus.
Also in this episode Shawna remembers an early childhood memory that has shaped her expectation about friendships; a lie she’s believed. The enemy plants lies but Jesus speaks truth over us & heals us from childhood wounds.
Then, the person who created the universe is living in us through his Spirit, and yet Perry admits, “I so often fail to tap into His strength or don’t know how!” Last, the joyful rest of walking with Jesus in the cool of the day and how Perry has to fight for that because of busyness!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
