Online Mission Projects
To reach the online mission field, we must build online mission stations. Each of our mission projects involve one or more of four primary areas of online outreach:
- Church-based Online Mission Stations
- School-based Online Mission Stations
- Ministry-based Online Mission Stations
- Online Missionary Training
While operating on the same principles of mission work and evangelism, each different type of mission station can reach its own audience in a variety of powerful ways. We are grateful to our generous donors, who sponsor these projects so they can do just that.
Opportunity in Rwanda:
In partnership with Impact Hope, the Center is providing job skills training to Rwandan refugees so they can pursue sustainable careers while also helping us build online mission stations. Not only does this help these refugees become able to leave the refugee camps and establish their lives, but it also helps us provide more cost-effective assistance to churches, schools and ministries that want to reach the online mission field.
And you can be a part of this far-reaching ministry.
“Christ’s method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, ‘Follow Me.'”
-Ellen G. White, The Ministry of Healing, p. 143.
Any church, school or ministry can establish an online mission station.
Any Seventh-day Adventist organization can expand its reach. The right kind of digital marketing best practices can bolster the evangelistic efforts of our ministries in the following ways:
Notice how everyone is constantly Googling things? Whether they have a question, want to verify information or want to find their desired location on a map, you’ll want to know how to best use Google’s communication tools and principles to reach those that are asking spiritual questions, looking for a school for their kids, looking for a solution to a felt need, or countless other possibilities.
Even with shorter attention spans and digitized information, people today are actually reading more—they’re just doing it on their phones, in between meetings at work, while riding on a bus, or while waiting in the doctor’s office. You’ve got a message to share—and by regularly creating and sharing compelling content that addresses needs and answers questions, readers can be drawn to (and loyal to) your blog, website, ministry, etc.
This is still a word-of-mouth style of evangelism. The only difference is that today, our conversations are being held online—through social media, blogs, videos, articles, forums and email. We use our professional training in these areas of media to help your church, school or ministry reach its audience in the most relevant, profound way possible.
