Manassas, VA – Jesus.net will receive the NRB International Innovation Award during the February 21st International Keynote Session at the NRB 2012 Convention & Exposition.
“This ministry has as a goal over the next 10 years to expose over 250 million people to the Gospel, and see 25 million individuals come to Christ as Lord of their life,” said NRB Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Dr. Ron Harris. “The vision of the ministry is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ through interactive websites to Internet users of the 35 most-used languages on the Web. They are touching lives minute-by-minute around the globe.”
The Jesus.net approach is a process for Internet evangelism, with the purpose to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people by using the Internet, to connect the willing seeker with Christians (online) and to empower the local “churches” and Christians to disciple them (online and offline). This is all done in partnership with national partners, churches and individuals. In this whole process, prayer is crucial. The dream of Jesus.net is a world with every single person having free access to the Gospel, knowing God, growing in Jesus, and sharing faith easily.
The NRB International Innovation Award is presented to an organization based outside the United States that excels in innovative uses of electronic media in the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ.
