Digital Disciple-Making Coordinator with WorldVenture.com

Media is pervasive. Even in a rural village in Africa, you can find cell phones charged with car batteries. God’s purpose for the sphere of media is the transfer of wisdom and the promotion of healthy relationships. Using media for Christ is not new, nor is it new in missions. However, in this world of communications revolutions, media is no longer a side strategy in missions, but a primary player in moving the gospel forward in any city or region. www.worldventure.com/360

Right Now Media: How to Use It

We spend too much energy following the news and writing angry comments on social media. If we spent that energy a different way, how could God use us to change the world? In a book I am reading by Clarence Thomas, My Grandfather’s Son, he learned that to help others, he needed to be in a […]

How to Choose Better

Yesterday, I wrote a piece for WorldVenture, How Social Media Can Help You Live Deeply. In researching this article, I came across Proverbs 13:20, Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. Who do you allow in? It’s certainly not my Facebook profile that determines whom I let […]

How to Fight Off Wolves

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. – Matthew 7:15  The internet contains more than 50,000 sermons. How do we discern between the Word of God being preached and what our online Bible Study last evening called, scoffers?   A scoffer is someone who looks after his own interests, denies […]

How to Love Others in 5 Not-So-Easy Ways

Sitting in the coffee shop, sipping ice tea on a hundred-degree day across from a new friend, I was reminded again of Proverbs 27:17: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. We talked about love. The topic of love has been on my mind lately. Over social media, people use the Bible to […]

4 Ways Harriet Tubman Inspired Me

A Commentary on Harriet Tubman: The Road to Freedom by Catherine Clinton “’The Lord told me to do this.

Why Your Social Media Strategy Should Include Humility

“How we think of the people we work with and for. Our willingness—or lack of willingness—to consider their well-being, not simply focusing on how they can benefit us. Of meeting them at their point of need rather than our own. Of treating people like Jesus treats people.” – Lead Like Jesus, Humility The pressure of […]

Of Lost Opportunities

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. – Read Ephesians 4:11-32 Originally, I was looking for verses online around the topic of “reeds blowing.” In my mind, I visualized social media campaigns and the people who […]

Stories From 2018

In 2018, I led a pastors workshop in Phoenix, Arizona. Though the event is past, listen to Doris tell her story about social media.

“He’s (the pastor) really excited and said this (Digital Discipleship) has freed him from so much that he is able to focus on the larger vision. He has his sermons mostly ready by Wednesday and can do more that he’s wanted to be free to do.”

From a Congregation Member

“I see social media as a tool for missionaries to increase contact with partners. I feel more confident using it.”

Missions Door Person

“I met Nikki over a year ago through the Zoom application used for Bible Study with Gaye. Since then, I have also ‘friended’ her on Facebook and have been able to positively respond to many of her thought-provoking questions requiring me to apply God’s Word. These challenges have often provided the catalyst I needed to minister to others. Nikki also has shared her human side – her cat, room renovation and her love for coffee. Through all of this, it is because of social media that we “know” each other. The discipleship she provides is encouraging, thought-provoking, action-activated, and consistent. Can’t wait to meet her in person!”
