Free MP3 Christian music for evangelism challenge and missionary advocacy meetings
These songs are useful for missions or outreach-challenge meeting for Christians – these are not evangelistic songs to speak to not-yet-Christians, they emphasize to Christians the challenge of sharing the gospel. Whatever your personal taste in music, they are probably more likely to communicate to younger generations than certain traditional ‘missionary’ hymns written in the 19th century! They are free to use and distribute if not for profit, eg you can burn them all on to a CD – many modern CD players now handle MP3s.

Amazing skill of storytelling. Telling stories is key to effective Christian communication
There is a remarkable revival in the ancient skill of storytelling. For thousands of years, societies have valued those with the gifts to 'spin a yarn'. In the West, there are many amateur storytelling groups, and even some professional storytellers. I have sat completely entranced in the storytelling tent of a local summer festival. Listen to a 30-minute BBC radio program about the art of storytelling (only online till 16 August). Storytelling is a wonderful skill to learn, and hugely valuable for any form of evangelism or Christian communication.
Christian blog - how shyness and writing gifts led one woman to start a Christian blog
Kelsey is a mother of four living in West Texas. She writes with compelling humor of life as a wife and mom in her Holy Mama! blog. She not only has a gift of writing winsomely, but knows how to communicate in a way that is accessible to non-Christians. Very few blogs achieve this: learn more. Note how even the full title of the blog is well-chosen – self-deprecating, non-threatening and humorous. The other issue to flag up here: Kelsey is using a ready-made blog tool, and says she knows nothing about technical stuff at all!
Digital Rivers Newtown - a short story illustrating the growth of social networking
It’s not often that a completely new town is built on unused open land. But that’s where Digital Rivers Newtown was constructed, in a previously undiscovered valley. People soon came flooding in to live, moving from surrounding settlements such as Printville and TVtown.
Facebook Fan Pages as landing pages to promote your site or ministry
Interesting to notice that commercial companies (including new film releases) are now featuring Facebook Fan Page URLs in their TV commercials. Rather than initially point to their website, they use their Fan Page as a landing page which then links directly to their main site. The advantage is that people may become fans, thereby: * opting in automatically to further news * displaying to their friends the Fan Page link and its posts * enabling discussion about the product or service featured in the Fan Page Fan Page (and Facebook Groups) are highly strategic opportunities, either to make known your ministry to other Christians, or to creatively connect with not-yet-Christians. And, starting today, Facebook are introducing a new Community Page option.

Christendom is over. Post-Christian evangelism: presentation by Alan Hirsch
Perhaps the biggest challenge to the western church today is the shift in the last 10+ years to a post-Christian context. And people are just not that much into us any more. Alan Hirsch is one of the key leaders helping us to understand this changing context and change our ministry approaches.
What does Europe believe? Christian look at Eurobarometer Poll results
Having just got back from a web evangelism conference in Lithuania, I thought I'd look up some stats for beliefs in that country, and found this remarkable table of Eurobarometer Poll results for the whole of Europe.
