2013 Internet Evangelism Day to be Held April 21

Churches, fellowships, small groups, ministries, and Christians throughout the world will be setting aside time on Sunday, April 21, to communicate the outreach potential of the Web to the wider body of Christ.

Held each year since 2005, Internet Evangelism Day is a time for churches and individual believers to take time out of their regular routine to explore new ways to reach their neighbors, communities, and their world for Christ through a platform that more and more people have access to.

According to the latest figures from Internet World Stats (updated June 30, 2012), over 2.4 billion people around the world have access to the Internet. Just four years ago, that figure was around 1.6 billion. At the end of 2000, the number of Internet users was only 360 million.

Churches interested in getting involved in IE Day can visit the official website of IE Day, internetevangelismday.com, which has free resources, including short skits, effective strategies, and other tools and references designed to get people thinking about the subject of Internet evangelism.

Also available on the site are tips for designing good church websites – ones that do more than just list the church’s address and the times of worship services but actually engage in ministry and reach people.

The Internet Evangelism Coalition (IEC), which initiated the first IE Day, has been backing IE Day and facilitating its promotion since 2005.

The executive member organizations of IEC are: American Tract Society, Billy Graham Center, Brown Governance, Campus Crusade for Christ, Christian Broadcasting Network, Christianity Today, Evangelism Explosion, Gospel.com, and Mission America.
