Future Church — Church-in-an-AI-Box

One of my criticisms of the current approach to church, particularly church growth, in the scenes I’m part of is that it ends up being a little machine like — leadership guides (in the forms of blogs, podcasts, and conferences) all seem to be embedded in our technological society — the world of technology and technique described by the philosopher Jacques Ellul back in the 1950s. If this technological society is part of what disenchants, and so, secularises, then, well, ChatGPT reckons there are some risks:

“The church’s use of technology could lead to feelings of disenchantment among some members, particularly those who prefer a more traditional or immersive worship experience. This could lead to a decline in attendance and participation, and ultimately, a decline in the church’s growth.

There is also a possibility that the church’s embrace of technology can lead to a sense of disconnection, superficial engagement and shallow understanding of the faith, this could lead to a lack of commitment and meaningful engagement with the faith, which could be reflected in the lack of growth or even decline of the church.”

ChatGPT is a reasonably recent machine learning, or AI, large language model. It’s a clever piece of technology — and you can find all sorts of church leadership types opining on how to use the technology (and tweeting about ways to unlock its power, or how you ‘just aren’t using it right’ without their help) if you browse Twitter. One of the fun features of ChatGPT that can “unlock its power” is that within a conversation you can refine results by asking it more questions, and you can assign it a persona that it will attempt to create on the basis of its ‘learning.’ People disappointed with the results it produces might not have really pushed into this feature of the tool. ChatGPT develops original content in the same way Hollywood does (or in the same way any artist does, really), it remixes and borrows and creates a derivative pastiche using the language, imagery, colours, metaphors and other elements of written communication available to it. This means when you ask ChatGPT to engage in a conversation as a church leadership guru, its advice is not novel, it is, in fact, derived from the countless words of leadership advice already uploaded to the machine (or the cloud).

What happens then, if you ask ChatGPT to function as a consultant for a new church plant in modern Australia? What vision for church does it offer? Well. Let me introduce you to Radiance Church. A church for Australia’s future imagined by the machine. I asked ChatGPT to answer my questions using the personality of a church leadership guru. ChatGPT’s summary of its adopted persona is:

“My focus is on practical and effective strategies for building and growing a church community that is well equipped to thrive in a modern world. I will emphasize the importance of technology and innovation in building a vibrant and relevant church community that is able to connect with people in the community.”

In the next couple of posts I’ll be building a sort of ‘proof of concept’ use of this technology, and using it to generate a vision of how churches might adapt to our changing world and these emerging technologies, then I’ll be using this exercise to critique not just the use of this technology to produce some fairly easy and amazing results with minimal effort, but the church system/culture this technological miracle emerges from… the learned responses of the machine reveal something about the machinery of the modern church.

It turns out it’s fairly easy for ChatGPT to produce ‘church in a box’ (whether its a good church, or just something generically ‘vibrant’ is kinda the point). Everything in italics in this post was produced by ChatGPT in response to the questions from me.

Church Names

The image should be high quality, bright, and have a clear focal point. The lighting and composition should be used to create a sense of positivity, hope, and inspiration.

One idea could be an image of a group of people, gathered together in a beautiful outdoor setting, with the sun shining down on them and creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The group could be seen praying, singing, or simply enjoying each other’s company, with the focal point being the radiant light shining down on them. This image would convey the message of the church as a warm, welcoming and inclusive community where people can gather together in the light of God’s glory and find hope, peace and joy.
