AI Came In On A Black Horse

When Artificial Intelligence first came on the scene there was a lot of skepticism, doom, and gloom. And for many there still is. Is there a place for AI in ministry?

That’s a great question for Steele Billings, head of AI at Gloo. Gloo is the Church’s place to build a more connected ministry.

We ask Steele: Is it unethical to use AI? Is it deceitful? Wrong?

Steele shares the benefits of using AI as a sparring tool to sharpen our own thinking and enhance our engagement with people. He also shares the need for the our own God -given conviction around the appropriate use of AI.

He shares his greatest concern regarding AI: That it would replace relationships. Conversely, one of the great things about AI is how it connects us to one another.

AI is here and it’s not going anywhere. So, how can we use it to advance the Kingdom of God?

Perry shares, “Regarding the resurrection, I want to know I’m not believing in a fairy tale, that Christ really did rise in history.” So what is the evidence?

Last, If Christianity feels like a list of do’s and don’ts, it might be time to discover or remember your “Why?”

Perry LaHaie

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

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.
