20 Ways to Share Your Faith Online

The explosion in popularity of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have led to tons of new, creative ways for Christians to build relationships and share their faith with people online.

Each of the next 20 weekdays, some fantastic guest bloggers and I are going to share and discuss one creative Internet evangelism idea each day. That’s 20 ideas from 12 bloggers in 20 days.

All of this leads up Internet Evangelism Day, April 25, 2010

The purpose of this group blogging project as well as Internet Evangelism Day is to raise awareness about the opportunities each of us has to use some facet of the Internet to share the good news of Jesus Christ with others.

If that gets you excited, here are 5 ways you can get involved.

But before I got to those 5 things.  I want to give a big shout out (and some link love) to the following bloggers who will be contributing ideas.

20 Ways…

  2. Share some (or all) of the ideas with your Facebook friends.
  3. Discuss the ideas in the comments.  Share any related ideas.
  4. If you’re a pastor, communications director, evangelism coordinator, or small group leader, engage your congregation in a discussion about these ideas.
  5. Don’t just talk about these ideas. Do them! Post comments telling us about what happened, the people you connected with, and what you learned from the experience.

So, what do you say?  Are you in?  How do you plan to participate?
