By David Bourgeois In the past I have explored the idea that we are in a “post-website world.” Because of this, it is important that we learn how to get our message in front of our audience where they are. And the data show that they are on social networks. But this sometimes leads ministry leaders to the wrong…

Internet Evangelism: The Case for Actually Getting Results

By John Edmiston One of the most frequent objections to Internet evangelism and to the use of information technology in missions is that of numbers and results being seen as worldly and therefore as “unspiritual”.

Join the Voices of Gratitude

We discover over and over again in God’s Word that He, alone, is worthy of our praise. Our praise, adoration, and thanksgiving brings Him delight and increases our intimacy with Him.
