Since the pandemic hit the globe, the ministers of a local church in one Asian nation have shifted their mission focus toward online evangelism and shepherding. God blessed them with creative ideas to strategically navigate through this uncharted territory and the online outreach has become very fruitful in the past few months.
The church's Facebook page has garnered nearly 2,000 followers already, and the minister aims to lead them to various sub-groups according to their needs. He also created short videos answering popular apologetic questions to attract seekers and those who are looking for answers to life's biggest questions.
Online Bible studies on Facebook have drawn numerous students who are thirsty to know God and the purpose of their lives. By focusing on the book of Romans, church leaders aim to share with listeners the core truth of salvation by grace through Jesus Christ. In August alone, 70 people joined the weekly Bible studies online. "The crisis of the pandemic has turned into a great opportunity in the hands of our faithful God," they shared.
