What Online Resources Accelerate Your Growth?

Recently God used online technology to challenge me into a new season of trusting him.

My decision to change leadership roles and move from a traditional college town to a regional city with over a hundred thousand students on multiple campuses was spurred on partly due to my consumption of a spiritual resource available online.
