Internet Evangelism Day is an annual digital outreach focus day for churches. This year, it is scheduled for Sunday April 25. It’s an opportunity for any church to explore with its members the exciting opportunities for sharing the good news online. Ready-made free downloads – PowerPoint, video clips, handouts, drama scripts and music can be easily built into a presentation of five minutes or fifty. If you are involved in online ministry, here’s an opportunity to help your church understand your involvement!
2010’s focus day will be the sixth to be used by churches around the world since the initiative’s launch in 2005. Over this period, digital media have developed dramatically, with the advent of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and the growing use of mobile phones to access online services.
IE Day’s website is also a one-stop resource covering many subjects including: how to build a church website that is ‘outsider friendly’, using Twitter in evangelism, and ideas for effective blogging. The two growing opportunities – Facebook and mobile phones – are frequently covered.
CCCI’s vital role in digital evangelism is strongly featured within the IE Day site, in the Web Evangelism Bulletin monthly newsletter, and on the Digital Evangelism Issues blog. News and ideas to include in these, from anyone involved in digital ministry, are greatly welcomed.
