Gloo is offering a free resource hub with the aim of keeping the faith community updated and able to navigate the artificial intelligence landscape.
The Boulder, Colo-based tech provider for Christian churches employs roughly 150 people. The platform they provide seeks to connect people, partners, content, funding opportunities to help ministries. The new AI hub is set to be a collection of information on the latest AI developments and its responsible use in ministry. There will also be new tools available for churches and a list of upcoming events.
“Artificial intelligence is worth thoughtful exploration from the faith community,” Ed Stetzer, a curator and contributor to Gloo’s hub, said in a statement from the company. “It’s a tool with tremendous upside potential for the Church, and as faith leaders, we have to be prepared to use this powerful new resource for Kingdom purposes.”
The company also plans later this summer to release the findings of its survey on church leaders’ views and uses of AI.
The Head of Gloo Exchange and AI Initiatives at Gloo said that the hub and survey are intended to spark meaningful discussions and content among church publishers and technology creators around AI. Gloo has partnered for content creation with Barna Group, YouVersion, One Hope, marketing consultant Kenny Jahng, author Carry Nieuwhof, Christianity Today, AI and Faith website and others.
