Press Play With God: Video Game Chaplaincy

Nelson Mendoza  is developing an online pastoral presence with video gamers on the platform Mixer. He holds regular office hours, wearing his collar, and converses with players and takes prayer requests. He originally intended to reinforce his presence in-person at two gamer conferences in Texas; he attended one but the second was cancelled due to the Coronavirus.  

Mendoza offers profound reflections on online relationships, and ministry in pandemic, in these podcast appearances:
