Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
In our ever-changing world of technology, it is important to stay on top of the latest tools people use to get information. Think back to how Jesus got out His word to the people of His day. He spoke His word as communication was largely done verbally, and then it was written down because a main source of communication in the past, and even today, is written works.
The Internet is such a vital tool in our society, so much so that virtually every aspect of our lives is somehow included on the Internet. We do our banking online, chat with family and friends, and use search engines such as Google to seek out answers to questions.
Video on the Internet was largely popularized by the social video site YouTube. Practically everyone who uses the Internet has watched a video online. Web videos can range from entertainment, to instructional, to, you guessed it, ministering to people.
As so many people watch videos online, just imagine the impact you could have on people's lives if you shared the Word of God through an internet video. Imagine someone typing in a phrase such as "meaning of life" into Google, clicking on your video in the search results, watching your video, and getting saved because they came across your video! This is just one way someone might come across your videos. There are many others, which I will discuss in later postings.
There are many ways you can go about putting videos online. One way is to upload your videos to popular sites such as YouTube and GodTube. Another way to put your videos online is to compile them into a video stream, or a WebTV channel, so your videos are constantly playing whenever someone visits your WebTV channel.
If you would like more information about how to get the Word of God online through web videos, stay tuned! I will go into more details in this thread.
I am also starting a group on Kingdom Insight called Internet Tools where I will be talking about tools you can use on the Internet to minister to people, and how to use these tools.
Are you already using video online? If so, how? I would love to hear how you are using videos online! Also, join the Kingdom Insight Group Web Warriors to share how you are using not only web videos, but any type of web technology, to be a warrior for Christ!
If you are not already using videos online, are you planning on using videos online? If so, how do you plan on using web videos?
