Manassas, VA– Global Christian ministry CV is the Platinum Sponsor for the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention, which will take place February 23-26, 2015, in Nashville, TN.
In addition, CV’s Founder, Lord Robert Edmiston, will be speaking at the convention’s Digital Media Summit on February 25 on the topic of “Proclaiming Jesus in the Digital Realm.”
During his session, he will share details about yesHEis, CV’s free online evangelism platform, which his ministry is launching in the U.S. yesHEis is a free tool to help Christians share Jesus online by connecting the best, most “sharable” content with an engaging presentation of the Gospel, providing an opportunity for the viewer to become a follower of Jesus.
As a social content aggregator, yesHEis makes it easy for Christians who are online to begin conversations and discussions about their faith through videos and other content ranging from light, introductory topics to deep theological issues. To date, the platform’s use in other nations has resulted in more than 232,000 people sharing their faith online, 9 million views, and 26,000 responses.
“yesHEis is innovation that points the way to the future,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “With a vision to reach a billion people with the Gospel, the ministry makes full use of media platforms to spread the Good News in all the world. We are blessed for Lord Edmiston to share his vision at NRB15.”
Since its founding in the U.K. 26 years ago, CV has grown to include teams in 22 countries. CV’s media strategies are part of its “Touch-a-Billion” emphasis, which uses the most effective media platforms to introduce individuals to Jesus in the world’s major languages. The goal is to reach 1 billion people around the world with a clear presentation of the Gospel message and an opportunity to make a decision for Christ.
Another component of CV’s ministry is its “Impact-a-Nation” projects, which operate “on the ground” on a national scale in areas and times of particular opportunity. CV equips indigenous national church leaders with strategies and tools for evangelism and discipleship. Their goal is to build sustainable models in church leadership programs and planting projects such that local Christians are empowered to build Christian faith from the ground up.
During the NRB15 Convention, Lord Edmiston and other CV representatives will be meeting with other ministry leaders and exploring ways they can multiply each other’s impact in their common goal of fulfilling the Great Commission.
“NRB is the largest and most prestigious event where Christian media professionals gather not just from the U.S. but from all over the world,” Lord Edmiston said of the ministry’s decision to launch its U.S. yesHEis platform at the 2015 Convention. “It is natural that we would want to launch yesHEis to such an audience and at such a venue.”
