Center for Online Evangelism
The Center for Online Evangelism is a missionary project devoted to developing online mission stations.
People are Googling for God.
Each year there are millions of Google searches for answers to questions like:
“Is God real?”
“What happens when we die?”
“How do I know I’m saved?”
“Why is there so much suffering in the world?”
Additionally, many people are hurting, entertaining suicidal thoughts, or feel there is no hope for their situation. They turn to the internet for companionship, understanding, information, anonymity, and more. It’s easier for them to pour their hearts out on Google, Reddit or a topical forum than it is to come to a friend, neighbor, co-worker or family member.
This great need yields an opportunity for you to share the hope found in Christ.
No matter your skill set, interests, or socio-economic status, you can be a beacon for the hope only God can give. Being an online missionary simply means you dedicate time online to help people learn more about Jesus Christ and invite them to follow Him.
With the increase of social media platforms, websites, and the popularity of video sharing sites, there are countless types of media you can use to connect with someone, build a relationship, care for their needs, and point them to a saving relationship with the Lord.
There are so many ways to do this. It could simply be what you share on your Facebook page, blog, YouTube channel, Instagram feed…wherever you spend your time and have nurtured a circle of friends or followers. You can share articles, quotes, scripture, or begin discussions of your own. You can even use proven evangelistic strategies to lead others to Bible studies, whether at your local church, or online in a private Facebook group. The possibilities are as limitless as our God!
There are many online missionaries and digital disciples out there already. But as you know, the harvest is so plentiful that more workers are always needed.
Anyone who is a follower of Jesus is called to be a disciple and we were all given the commission to “go…and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19, NKJV). Now the nations are literally at our fingertips! We can ‘travel’ to Asia to tell someone of Jesus and at the same time share Bible truth with someone living on the West coast of the United States—while sitting at home, thousands of miles away from those we are interacting with.
These days, anything you can think of can be accessed online. Why not make Jesus more accessible?
If you are looking forward to the soon return of Christ and if you have access to the internet, you can be an online missionary.
Post it. Text it. Tweet it. Pin It. Share it. Vlog it.
What is ‘It’? The Good News that Jesus died to save us from our sins and is coming soon to take us home!
