Evangelism? How About E-Vangelism?

But the Internet is providing new ways to reach people with the message of Christ, and one Christian ministry in Great Britain is set to take advantage of these new opportunities. wants to reach the millions of people in Internet chat rooms, where the Net's relative anonymity often lets people open up their hearts and minds in ways that they wouldn't in a face-to-face conversation. Visit their Web site to find out more about this unique ministry, and to find out how you can become an e-vangelist.

Sharing With People Online

Terri Main felt recently that in the same way as churches go out to visit their neighborhood housing, sometimes called 'Adopt a Block', she should join some email lists.

"Instead of adopting a block, I adopted an email discussion list at yahoogroups in an area where I have an interest and some expertise. I simply introduced myself and among my hobbies, profession, age and that sort of thing, I mentioned that I also had a web ministry and gave the URL. I also added if there was any way I, or our church, could be of help, to let me know. Within a couple of days, I had a number of inquiries and was able to share the gospel. One person who had been blaming God for all the difficult things in her life asked me to pray that she stop blaming God. Anyway, I even ended up co-moderating the list. It's another way to use the internet for one-on-one style evangelism."

This is the sort of introduction she gave herself on the list: "Hi, It's great to be a part of this list. I guess you'd like to know a little about me. I'm 49 years old. I live in the Central Valley of California. It gets really hot there. I Teach public speaking at a local community college. I love to write [note this was a list related to freelance writing]. I've written magazine articles for about 30 years. What I really love doing right now is maintaining a number of web pages including those for our church.I put out a daily devotion by email. I also love to write fiction and occasionally teach fiction writing. If I can help in anyway, let me know. Anyway, looking forward to chatting with you all."

She comments, "It was very low-key and it was in fact a list that I had interest in. I looked around at my Internet experience and realized that slowly I had allowed myself to become part of a little Christian cocoon in cyberspace. I simply started jumping into the discussion and eventually asked if I could post a few writing tips. The moderator was thrilled and we had a number of good conversations off-list and found out that she had been a Christian but had drifted from the Lord and well, anyway, it's someone to keep in prayer. I also started posting some of my fiction which deals with general issues, but has Christian characters and often has a Christian twist without being preachy. And at the end of the story is a link back to the general website. I don't deceive anyone. They know I'm a Christian, a teacher and a writer. They know my writing has both secular and Christian themes, but most of my posts are on general writing topics, but since they know there is a Christian around (especially in light of recent events in the US) a few of them contact me off list."
