God is at Work Online: Reaching Millions of People

And now with our eCourse platform, you can too. You just need to do some out-of-the-box thinking. Push the envelope. Open up to a new way of reaching out.

While 4,000 churches in America are shutting down each year, more and more families are sleeping in on Sunday morning. How do you reach them and the millions across the world who need Jesus? How do we reach the disengaged? As Christians do we continue doing the traditional thing over and over, or do we creatively branch out and reach people where they are – on their laptops and smart phones? How do we advance the Kingdom, and fulfill the Great Commission in the 21st century?

Acts 2 Technology was born out of need and is an answer to these questions. It is an online eCourse platform that is affordable to all and easy to use. Online learning isn’t a new concept; corporations and educational institutes saw the need for online training years ago. But the technology was too costly for churches and those in the mission field until now. Our eCourse platform is a new technology that is changing all that. And God is blessing His people and offering His love and salvation through this new technology.

a Chinese missionary…

china-studentOur very first Acts 2 user was a Chinese missionary living in Canada. Her mission involved training nationalists to counsel and teach Chinese Christians meeting secretly in underground churches. Travelling back and forth was becoming too dangerous and exhausting for this 50ish lady. So, here’s how we helped her: We produced videos of her teachings, uploaded them into our eLearning platform and found a server provider abroad that could sidestep censorship by the Chinese government. Exactly one day after we were up and running in communist China, the government closed the underground churches. What they don’t know is that closing the churches had little impact. Hungry Christians are still studying God’s message of love and forgiveness through Acts 2 on their smart phones.

We think God gave us this challenge to see if we were in it for the long haul. We tackled the complexities and learned a whole lot. Today, forward thinking ministries, churches, preachers, evangelists and missionaries are turning their printed and spoken work into Acts 2 online courses. They have found that by using video (shot on their Smart Phones) to introduce their course, a rapport is established with their students, and engagement is higher. Plus they are saving money in printing, distribution and travel. And they are broadening their audience from one church, one city or country and expanding their reach to the world.

Easy for Everyone!

You don’t have to be a technology geek to use Acts 2. If you know Microsoft Word, you know us. Anyone who has a message, a book, workbook, audio or video series can easily upload into our eCourse system and send it out to the world. We provide ecommerce and password protection, which means you can charge for your courses and keep 100% of the money for your ministry. Contact Acts2Technology.com or call 469-287-5355.

  1. Great idea. Thanks for the post!

    I love the evening. As an Anglican, I love the offices of Choral Evensong and Compline / Vespers.

  2. My favorite time of day is early in the morning just before sunrise because that us when I like to spend time with God either through prayer or bible reading. Sitting on the back deck and enjoying the sun rise!

  3. Oh by the way I shared my post on Facebook … http://www.facebook.com/rahayes82

  4. My favorite time of day — I love mid-mornings (around 9 am-ish)- long after I've had my coffee and I'm awake and at my most productive.

      Thanks Vicki. We are now following you on twitter – please follow us back if you'd like.

  5. My favorite time of day is at night. (I know it sounds awkward. ;')) I love it when it's nighttime (11pm-12mn) because I'm able to read my Bible and do some devotions effectively. It's quiet during this time, so it's easy for me to feel God's presence when I study. Thanks for this opportunity!

  6. My favorite time of day is mornings when I first wake up. The first thing I do is praise my Lord Jesus Christ and worship Him. I know each day is a gift from God for my inheritance lies eternal in Heaven.

    I posted the comment at these links:

  7. I posted this to facebook. – My favorite time of day is whenever I sense the presence of God and realize again how Wonderful and Amazing He is. I also love any time of day that I get to spend one-on-one time with any of my four gifts from God, my children!

  8. I enjoy the early morning, before the family wakes up. This gives me the opportunity to enjoy some quiet time alone. Time to ready my daily devotional, daily Bible reading, and work on my site Renewed Strength

  11. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  12. Nice article! Really enjoyed reading your article! I am extremly impressed. Could spend all day looking in to these websites.E-learning has many advantages, while the most obvious are the flexibility and the cost savings from not having to travel or spend excess time away from work, there are also others that might not be so obvious.
