Internet and Missions

  127 views

With the world population nearing 7 billion and given the rate of population growth, it may be that somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of all the people who ever have lived on this earth are alive right now. What a HUGE time in the history of the world for Christian missions!!! To me, it seems providential that at this critical moment in worldwide Christian missions that a communication tool (the internet) is developing that provides for instantaneous worldwide communication.

For this reason, I believe that the internet has the potential to be one of the key ways that our world population can be reached for the gospel. It is also a tool that can be used to train pastors, Bible teachers, and Christian leaders around the world. So many local church websites that I have seen are geared for a very local audience, particularly for those who have already been reached.

Is there a network of people out there who are considering how to use the internet as a key missions tool? I would love to see Reformed Christians grab hold of this media. Think of what we could do!!! If you are also considering these things, let's start thinking about this together.

Hi Scott,
I don't know the site well myself, but I do know that there have been major changes in the work of Back to God over the last few years. Have you looked around at http://www.reframe-media.com/? If not, take a look. They are making use of the internet in some remarkable new ways. Steve

Greetings Scott,

You asked: "Is there a network of people out there who are considering how to use the internet as a key missions tool?"

The answer to your question is an unequivocal yes! There is a small but growing network of ministries using providing online education both for home and international missions use. I would be happy to speak with you. Drop me a note with your e-mail or phone number to [email protected]. Our ministry seeks to support the passion of churches, ministries, and schools to make the Word of God accessible worldwide and to build up the body of Christ.

Thanks, Steve, for mentioning ReFrame-Media.com. These are some great new ways God is using the Internet for missions in the English language. You might also want to check out BackToGod.net to see links to similar web ministries in other languages as well. Back to God Ministries International has some great discipleship web resources in Arabic, Chinese, French, Bahasa (in Indonesia), Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish—and we’re working on Hindi.
