“How do I use Facebook to share Christ with my friends?”, asked the student.
Kay and I were asked this question several times last week. We were in College Station, Texas participating in Grace Bible Church’s GO missions conference.
Perhaps you have been asking this question also.
Our internet ministry colleagues in Ethiopia have invited people to join in a day of using Facebook to share God’s love with Facebook friends. 244 people will spend time on Saturday, November 24th using Facebook as a platform for reaching out. Maybe their plans can help you with some creative ideas.
The objectives of this Facebook outreach are to encourage students to share the good news with their friends and to create multiple opportunities for them to know Jesus. Some of the strategies we are going to use are
- Sharing short personal testimonies on video or text (Here is an excellent worksheet to help you prepare to tell your story)
- Using Short films (See the Global Short Film Network site for excellent films. Also, the IAmSecond.com site has excellent testimony films.)
- Sending private messages to their “Inbox”
- Sharing Bible verses (Colleague Miheret has suggested 20 encouraging Bible verses here)
- Sharing pictures
How are you using Facebook to live out your faith among your network of friends?
