Reaching The Online Generation

An Initiative of CityTeam Ministries

Friday Prayer: Persons of Peace, Access Minstries, and Transitions

Posted on | August 15, 2008 |

My call to reach the Online Generation has unearthed more questions that I have answers.  They fall into three categories:

Person of Peace

Here is a link to read more on the Person of Peace.

What does an online Person of Peace look like? Do we leave a social network or community when we can’t find a Person of Peace?  Jesus told the disciples to shake the dust off their feet and move on to the next village.  Online, however, you have a constant flow of new people in and out of communities and social networks.  Do you maintain a presence in multiple social networks or do you move on?  Right now I’m maintaining a presence, but is that the best use of my time?

Access Ministries

Here is a link for more information on Access Ministries.

Here is another link on Access Ministries.

What do Access Ministries look like online?  How do we structure online humanitarian efforts to allow us to engage people in spiritual conversations and find Persons of Peace?  Do online Access Ministries have to result in offline contact?  How can we use the internet to organize a diverse group of people for offline humanitarian projects?

Transitions

Here is a link for more about Transitions.

How do we transition from participating in online communities to talking about spiritual things?  How do we transition from finding the Person of Peace and engaging their community in Bible study?

Friday Prayer

Pray for wisdom as I seek answer to the questions above.  Pray Persons of Peace to be revealed and God to be glorified among the Online Generation.

    Who is God?' was one of the top three sentences googled in 2007, according to Google Zeitgeist. According to Alexa, the top two religious websites are Muslim, with BibleGateway coming in at a close third. The Online Generation is spiritual. They are seeking. And the church is the last place they would go to find spiritual fulfillment. This site is dedicated to those walking with The Online Generation and living lives of obedience to all the commands of Jesus Christ.
