New Wave of Evangelism in Digital Age Celebrated
The beginning of a new wave of evangelism and training in the digital age was celebrated during a summit hosted by the Think Eternity team and attended by leaders who came away from the meeting refreshed in their journey to follow the Great Commission.
Below is a commentary on the DBG (Digital Billy Grahams) Summit by evangelist and global youth ministry leader, Jon Groves. The summit co-host, Groves, has been integrating “digital evangelism” since shortly after the advent of social media.
– Editor’s Note
Twenty-Twenty Two’s summit marked the beginning of a new wave in evangelism and training. Never in history have we had greater access to greater numbers.
BY JON GROVES
The fact that I can preach to more people from the pulpit of my cell phone in an instant than my heroes preached to across their entire ministries is profound, humbling, and astonishingly heavy.
We have a great responsibility that accompanies this great opportunity, and may we not let it go to waste.
The team at Think Eternity has been on the forefront of digital missions and digital evangelism since Day 1, but our desire has never been to be the only ones.
For the last several years we’ve been raising up “Digital Billy Grahams” to take Christ to culture in the same spirit of our generation’s greatest evangelist. The equipping summit was the icing on the proverbial cake of individualized recruiting, discipleship and training that has been taking place these last several years. And it’s only just begun!
With so many opportunities in front of us in this digital age accompanied by the deafening noise, unceasing busyness, and confusion, the summit allowed us the opportunity to stop, refresh and renew our energy, strategy and methodology in the Great Commission to which we’ve been called.
