How evangelistic is your church web site?

April 24, 2009

Shouldn’t it be obvious?  I’ve seen many that are not, just like many churches are not.  It is good to have pastor’s blogging and current events showing a living church with real people.  It is good to use social media to connect the congregation with each other and the church leadership.  But what are you doing with “the web” to bring people to Christ?  My church site is doing a fair job of bringing existing Christians to our church.  But as I consider the content I have on the site, to be honest, it is not doing much to reach out to non-Christians.

With this in mind this year’s Internet Evangelism Day is April 26, 2009.  We need some strategy and plans for how we want to do our outreach.  It provides some resources to start.  I personally think we should be considering the web and our sites as a missions field.  Does anyone else treat their sites (or the web in general) in this way?


Online Missions Trip

January 17, 2009

I ran across this site promoting doing an Online Missions Trip February 1 – 14, 2009.  It is encouraging teens to use social media to evangelize.  There’s not much documentation (as far as I can find) though there seem to be a number of churches involved and a couple of guides for youth leaders.  I think this is an excellent idea.  Maybe your youth group can make use of it.
