Reaching The Online Generation

An Initiative of CityTeam Ministries

The ‘Pinky and The Brain’ Approach to Online Ministry

Posted on | April 15, 2009 |


While on Skype video with some University Students in New England one asked, “How big do you want this thing to get?  What’s your scope?”

I paused for a moment then replied, “Have you ever seen ‘Pinky and The Brain?’”

That got a few laughs, but I was somewhat serious.  I may have to start somewhat small and scale as I learn and gather a team, but I have nothing less than a global ministry focus on my heart.

Over one billion people worldwide get on the internet everyday.  I want to see all of them fall in love with Jesus.  This consumes my thoughts.

I don’t think our Master wants anything less.

God didn’t make us to take on this task alone.  Everyone has a role.  

Are you with me?

    totally with you on this Paul - there’s so much we can do to connect people to Jesus online, and using an online presence to model the Christian life and faith - have been trying to get my leaders to better use FB, twitter etc more intentionally to share their faith, and lives with people!

    in Him, eugene

    Thanks for the comment, Eugene! I totally respect leaders who are trying to equip their people to glorify God by living and walking spiritually and obediently within this new media.

    Keep up the good work!

    Paul - I laughed out loud. Great comparison and truth in the comparison.

    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.
