Digital outreach training days: London, Tirana, Accra, your town?

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

One of the best ways to envision people to see the potential of digital evangelism and ministry: draw them together for a training day in their locality, or their own church.

The international team called Indigitous, a broad umbrella of CRU (formerly CCCI) team members, is very active in setting up training days across Africa, Asia and Europe.

Calling all Brits: Training Day in London, UK, Tuesday 26 May

The next Indigitous day conference is in London, 9.30am-4.30pm at the Evangelical Alliance HQ at 176 Copenhagen St, London N1 0ST.

Whatever area of digital ministry interests you, this is for you!

Other training days

You need to keep an eye on the Indigitous site, their Twitter feed, their Facebook group and Facebook community page, to get news of training days in other countries. There does not seem to be a single email update option for new Indigitous resources like these.

Churches need a digital advocate

Consider appointing a digital advocate for your church – someone who can help resource and envision members in using digital media, especially social media, to appropriately share the good news. And perhaps set up training sessions for members too, either in the church or as a cooperative town-based event with other churches and groups.

Are you a maven*? Do you want to publish curated content?

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

It’s an obvious truth that you should only write about what you know, and what enthuses you. The CopyBlogger infographic below gives you guidance and ideas about how you might write a curated email newsletter. On anything. See also What can I curate?

Many of these choices apply equally to curating a visual topic on Pinterest, writing a blog – or even creating a website – around something that excites you.

I have often suggested building a website or blog around a special interest or hobby. It’s a great way to connect with people who share your own interests. It is one aspect of using the bridge strategy. Connecting with people through aspects of popular culture is a related opportunity with enormous potential.

Mobile evangelism: Indigitous digital conference in Bangalore, consultation in Europe

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

An Indigitous digital evangelism conference is coming to Bangalore on February 13-15, 2015. This is an exciting opportunity for any follower of Jesus who has an interest in digital technology. As far as I am aware, it will be just about the first training conference on digital ministry anywhere in India, by anyone. Previous Indigitous training sessions have been held in East Asia, various African capitals, and Europe.

Indigitous is a movement passionate about connecting people to Jesus using digital strategies. Their conferences offer the opportunity to learn new digital strategies, network with others who can partner with you to achieve your goals, and collaborate to create new tools and projects that will increase the effectiveness of your ministry.

The conference’s theme will be ‘Reaching the Unreached Using Mobile Technologies’. Among the keynote speakers will be the CEO of an international media company that specializes in social marketing, film, and Facebook games. In addition to hearing from keynote speakers who are experts in their fields, there will be live learning sessions where you will join other digital influencers and work together on projects that will be mutually beneficial to your respective ministries. Indigitous conference attendees leave the conferences inspired, equipped with new digital tools, and with great new contacts to collaborate and partner with in future endeavors.

More details on this conference, and all Indigitous activities.

Europe too

After arranging several annual consultations in Florida, the Mobile Ministry Forum plan their next in Zelhem, Netherlands, April 17-8 2015. Learn more of these amazing mobile ministry opportunities, with particular reference to the Majority World.

Mobile ministry by distance learning course

The 6-week distance-learning Mobile Ministry Course will be offered three times during 2015, the first starting on 10 Feb. You will need to spend a total of about 4 hours during each week on study at home, at times that suit you.

Africa infographic: last 20 years, next 20 years

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

The latest infographic from GMI (below) charts the huge changes in Africa over the last 20 years, and also highlights the growth of mobile phone access from zero to near universal. The huge benefits to Africa of improved communication through mobile and the Internet have been covered frequently in many blogs and reports – economic growth, development, health and education are all being transformed through digital.

Digital evangelism and discipleship are growing in significance. Indigitous has just completed a 3-day digital ministry conference in Ethiopia, and plans others. Video report above or watch on YouTube. You can also follow them on Facebook.

Cybermissions Africa held a strategic conference in Uyo Nigeria during April, and plan further meetings, seminars and conferences. Check their Facebook page.

With most Africans accessing the web and digital resources using mobile phones, our priority is to develop evangelism and discipleship mediated through mobiles. The Mobile Ministry Forum are the team to connect with for resources, networking and an annual consultation.

20/20: Progress & Challenges in Africa
While there are many reasons for the changes in Africa over the past 20 years, the release of Nelson Mandela and the spotlight he brought to Africa is a significant milestone. As the world mourned his loss in 2013, there is value in looking back over the past 20 years since his release from prison and the next 20 years and ask the question, “Given the amazing progress and significant changes, what is the role of the Church?” This Missiographic strives to provide some insight into this question.
