#CNMAC14 Speaker Profile (@ChineMbubaegbu)

There’s another excellent line-up for the fifth Christian New Media Conference (1st November 2014, The Brewery, London). With CODEC involved in developing the line-up, we’ve given the speakers the opportunity to answer a few questions:

ChineMWho are you, what do you do, and how does your story feed into #CNMAC14?

I’m head of media and communications at the Evangelical Alliance, which includes overseeing our digital content, idea magazine and our online collective of people in their 20s and 30s exploring faith and life – threads – a previous winner of the Multi-author blog of the year awards at CNMAC. I’m also addicted to social media.

Can you give us a ‘sneak peek’ into your session at #CNMAC14?

Hannah Mudge and I will look at two campaigns – #YesAllWomen and #BringBackOurGirls and explore what was going on in both instances; and challenge our own slacktivism, looking at what it’ll take to really change the world.

Session description: Case Studies: #YesAllWomen & #BringBackourGirls: There is much we can learn by studying online campaigns that caught the public attention. This session will unpack two key campaigns from 2014.

The theme for 2014 is ‘Transforming Church, Transforming Society’. What do you see as important areas within this theme?

It’s important that we as the Church don’t see ‘society’ as ‘out there’. The theme makes clear that there’s much that needs to be changed with ourselves first before we get to have any say on what happens in the rest of the world.

What do you think a digital age mean for us, seeking transformational living?

I think the digital age means barriers are broken down between the powerful and the powerless. There’s lots of opportunity then for bringing about change.

Outside of your own session, what are you most looking forward to at #CNMAC14?

My friends Danny Webster and Marika Rose’s session on Transforming Doctrine is sure to be excellent. Not just because they are, but because the session will cover some gritty topics.
