Reaching hurting people online as a volunteer Christian ementor http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/9982 2013-02-20T11:25:49-05:00 "It was a last-ditch effort. Nothing else had worked. No one had answers to my questions, or comfort for my pain..." Requests like this come to the TruthMedia.com team's outreach websites, and so they need volunteer ementors to write to inquirers, from their homes by email.

They cover everything from branding and design, to websites and outreach. This is a comprehensive communications resource for church leaders. Movies and TV tell hidden stories with spiritual messages and parallels http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/3532 2011-03-01T15:52:03-05:00 People have always loved stories – indeed we are hard-wired to so, and we spend a considerable portion of our leisure time in the world of story, particularly through movies/TV. Yet many people probably enjoy them without necessarily discerning areas of deeper significance within the plot. Topics in the Book of Proverbs http://reviveourhearts.com/topics/downloads/index.php?id=9524 2010-08-31T14:41:38-05:00 Practical advice for everyday living from God's Word. Answering and posing Christian questions online http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/595 2010-08-09T15:33:02-05:00 The Web is primarily a relationship builder. If it connects my computer to yours, then it connects me to you, your thoughts to mine. Everything else is just the nuts and bolts. Very often, such relationships are fleeting. But worthwhile. John at ChurchCrunch explains how he uses Aardvark to connect with people who are asking spiritual questions. Charlotte writes how she helps people asking questions on Yahoo Answers. Rob from New Zealand says, “I am doing my best to reach others through Facebook and YouTube. YouTube is easy as you just reply to comments about clips and get a conversation going.” There is also a huge need for Christians to become e-mentors for inquirers who write to large web outreach ministries. Book review: Growth by Accident, Death by Planning, by Bob Whitesel http://internetevangelismday.com/bookreviews/growth-by-accident-death-by-planning.php 2010-08-07T16:56:37-05:00 We believe that the Web has enormous potential in facilitating church growth. But a church which does not understand the spiritual dynamics of growth may fail to grow despite an apparently good evangelistic program. Bob Whitesel is a church doctor/consultant. There are very few people with his sort of ministry. The Voices and the Choices - #2716 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/the-voices-and-the-choices-2716 2009-09-16T12:33:46-05:00 We've caved in to the pressure, didn't stand for what was right and sold out our Savior. We listened to a voice or voices other than Jesus. We can't have those moments of compromise back. But we can bring them to the Lord repentantly, and claim His forgiveness. And pledge to Him that His will be the voice we follow in our choices. Advice - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2012:15&version=NIV 2009-08-05T09:26:08-05:00 Proverbs tells us that wise people listen to advice, while foolish people just assume that what they're doing is right. Counsel in the Bible: Proverbs 15:22 http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Prov.15.22&version=NIV 2009-07-23T17:22:49-05:00 The book of Proverbs is full of practical advice, including this exhortation to act on our plans only when we've gotten input and advice from trusted friends.
