Digital media has transformed the world in the last 15 years. Now more than half the world is connected to the Internet via mobile phones. This has provided unprecedented opportunities for us to connect, live out our faith, and have spiritual conversations with people across town, across the country, and across the world that were never before possible.
Internet Evangelism Day (IED) is an annual focus day to help raise awareness of the opportunities for Christians to share their faith online. This year’s IED is Sunday April 29.
The hope is that…
- Churches, bible colleges, outreach teams and other organizations will use Internet Evangelism Day as an opportunity to teach their members, students and staff about the online outreach opportunities.
- Organizations who are doing outreach will strategize about ways to expand their outreach online
- Organizations that are online will strategize about how they can use their online resources to reach more non-believers (rather than just focusing their efforts on believers)
The Internet Evangelism Day website is full of resources for individuals and organizations that desire to pursue one or more of those three objectives above. The site also includes the Digital Evangelism Issues blog, which provides news and insight.
I strongly encourage you to read this post on the IED site to learn about all the resources, events, and other things going on for this year’sIED.
We at OurChurch.Com are proud to say this is our 7th year supporting Internet Evangelism Day, and as we have been doing for the last 4 years we’ll be focusing our blogging and social media on Internet evangelism issues all this month leading up to IED.
