5 Minute Gospel Challenge

text size A A A

I would like to thank everyone that has read my articles and participated in Internet Evangelism Day. Since this year's event has passed, I have been thinking about how we can be more effective in the future.

I wonder what people think when they hear the words "Internet Evangelism Day." They might think we want them to invest a large amount of time. What if we could educate them to see internet evangelism as something that is simple to do and requires very little time to get started.

The Five Minutes Gospel Challenge

What if we could get pastors to ask their congregation to spend 5 minutes a month online engaging their friends with the Gospel?

In less than five minutes the average person can invite their friends to church, share a Bible verse about salvation or post a provocative question about spiritual matters.

Someone can simply copy and past the following sentence to their Facebook status and might get a response.

 If you have any questions about Christianity or the Bible, please let me know here or with a private message and I will try to answer them for you.

One last thought: Perhaps too many Christians are intimidated by the word "evangelism." What if we can find another word to describe what we do? How does Internet Outreach Day sound to you?
