Billy Graham launches Internet evangelism initiative

By   /   October 4, 2011  /   No Comments

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WordNews.org) Sept. 15, 2011 — The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has launched an Internet evangelism initiative to reach young people who are frequently online.
It had a soft launch in April and currently has thousands who have accepted Christ after viewing the site.
“Every day, people are searching online for answers,” said Preston Parrish, executive vice president of ministry for the BGEA. “In their time of need, we are presenting the only hope we have in this world — the hope found through a relationship with Jesus Christ.”
In the coming months, trained volunteer “E-counselors” will be available to chat online with spiritual seekers in an effort to lead even more people into a relationship with Christ. In addition, “Discipleship Coaches” will offer follow-up training to those who have made a commitment and encourage them in finding a church in their area.
“Today’s generation lives on the Internet,” said Parrish. “Much like our historic strategy of going where the people are — into stadiums, civic arenas and public gathering areas — we are doing the same as we reach into cyberspace with the Good News of God’s love, and His offer of forgiveness and eternal life through faith in Christ.”
