Gospel Tech with Nathan Sutherland


Gospel Tech is a resource for parents who are feeling outpaced and overwhelmed as they raise children in a tech world.

Our goal: Equip parents with the tools, resources, and confidence they need to raise kids who love God and use tech.

Gospel Tech’s mission is to equip families to love God and use tech. We want to empower parents to:
  1. Talk about healthy tech
  2. Communicate the Gospel
  3. Connect the hope of the Gospel to their everyday tech lives

Introduction to Gospel Tech
Three years ago I (Nathan) started Gospel Tech as a ministry to help connect the Gospel to the daily tech lives of families in practical ways. As a middle school teacher I saw a need for intentional, Gospel-focused conversations about tech. Tech was creating more distraction than inspiration in the classroom, and I saw the need for more than just new habits—there was a desperate need for new hearts.

Gospel Tech bridges the gap between scary tech conversations and the hope of the Gospel. With engaging stories and practical applications I bring Gospel-centered tech solutions families can apply in everyday life.

Gospel Tech Resources Beyond The Podcast
  • The Parent Tech Workshops: A two-part series addressing:
    • How should we handle Tech’s Big 3 (smartphones, gaming, pornography)?
    • How do we make tech safe at home? (two types of tech, tech health, and building tech trust)
  • Youth Talks:
    • The Tech Talk: Use the best tech on purpose, not for purpose.
    • The Hope Talk: A conversation about our goals, purpose, and how making a mistake doesn’t make us a mistake.
  • The Family Tech Framework: A two-hour workshop where families leave with the words to say and the plan in place for healthy tech at home and in daily life.
    • Part 1: Talk It Out: Parents learn key points of discussing healthful tech.
    • Part 2: Walk It Out: Families work together to create a Family Tech Framework customized to their needs, goals, and season of life.

At the end of the day our children aren't problems to fix, they're people to love. We need to point them to the purpose and hope available in Christ, in the work he's already done to make them new and to call them on to good works, and then use tech from that hope. This is why I love to say that in Christ we use tech on purpose, not for purpose.

That's the goal of Gospel Tech. Thanks for letting me be on this journey of parenting with you.
