Digital Engagement and Disciple-Making Coordinator

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

“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!”
