Evangelism is the commitment to, or act of publicly preaching of the gospel with the intention of spreading the message and teachings of Jesus Christ (Wikipedia)
Therefore, Digital Evangelism can be referred to as the evangelism that is conducted using digital tools and a well designed strategy.
At Pathfinder EC. we highly believe that, through social media, we can rebuild relationships with people anywhere on the globe at anytime 24/7, without incurring expenses related to traveling and accommodation.
Through these relationships, we can share the good news of salvation as it was given to us by Jesus Himself when he said “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…”
Truly, we are living on the age of social media, with millions of people on different platforms like Facebook, twitter, Instagram, you tube etc. The church needs to utilize this opportunity to share its mission to the world.
Although, there are some negative impacts associated with social media usage, but, we need to consider the positive side.Amy jo Martin once said: “Just as we teach our children to ride a bike, we need to teach them how to navigate social media and make the right move that will help them. The physical world is similar to the virtual world in many cases. It’s about being aware, we can prevent many debacles if we’re educated.”
In conclusion, the invention of internet has opened avenues for many people to access information, thus, the church is using this great opportunity to communicate its mission to the world.
At Pathfinder EC. we stand and promote online digital evangelism plan for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We have put a clear, long-term strategy that we hope through prayer, the ministry will grow day-by-day.
We are committed to spreading the Gospel of Christ to all the nations.
