New Book Helps Pastors Navigate the Digital Age

The shutdowns of COVID-19 left many churches struggling to convert their ministries online. With decades of working with pastors and ministry leaders, Phil Cooke’s newest book meets the need of the hour to help leaders speak the language of the digital age. “Maximize Your Influence – How to Make Digital Media Work for Your Church, Your Ministry and You” published by Cooke Media Group is available for pre-order at

“The digital age has changed everything we know about engaging this culture with the gospel message,” states Phil Cooke. “The need to share our message never changes, but how we share it does.”

Written as a reference guide, “Maximize Your Influence” helps leaders navigate the multiple aspects of digital media including livestreaming, social media, video and television production, and podcasting. It extends to branding, book publishing, crisis management and more.

Bobby Gruenewald, Pastor of Innovation at Life.Church and founder of the YouVersion Bible app refers to Cooke as “one of the best voices in the field of digital media.” Ben Field, Head of Film & Television for Hillsong Church endorses the book. “If there ever was a manual for helping Christian leaders navigate the media… this is it!”

The book encourages pastors of 20 to 20,000-member congregations to embrace the digital world. “It’s not about being famous. It’s about saying something that matters, and nothing matters more than the gospel.” — Phil Cooke
