What is the experience of information seeking (IS) by leaders of a church in transition, as they seek the will of God for their church? In this ethnographic pilot study, I begin to create a picture of leaders’ information seeking, first for personal faith building then corporate decision-making, and I consider the impact of new technologies on these processes. Religious IS did not differ significantly with other ELIS experiences, except in leadership roles. Prominent themes were theological diversity and prayer.
