Doing Online Ministry: a presentation by Paul WatsonMay 28, 2009
On 30 May, 1:30PM PDT, Paul Watson will be giving a presentation about Online Ministry in Second Life.
You are warmly invited to join us.
Paul Watson is a writer and speaker. He comes from a church planting background – his family spent time in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and India.
Paul is deeply influenced by his father, who developed a church planting strategy after carefully reading and praying through the New Testament. For a number of years he was involved in developing resources for church planters all over the world.
In the last year, he has devoted much of his time to developing strategies for reaching out to people online. You can read about his work at http://ReachingTheOnlineGeneration.com. His work here is some of the most thoughtful and incisive work regarding Online Ministry we have seen to date. Paul writes about themes that go beyond the “hype” and “wow” aspects of online ministry, asking penetrating questions about the
best ways of finding, approaching, and discipling online communities. The themes of prayer and scripture are powerfully interwoven throughout his work and underline the importance these have in his approach to all aspects of ministry. This summer, Paul will be leading a course and eight-week guided mission in online ministry, teaching the basics of ministry and church planting, and also their application within the online setting.
Paul also has a heart for Second Life ministry and we certainly hope to be seeing more of him in Second Life.
Join us for a discussion with Paul about Online Minsitry in general, and his particular approach. The venue within Second Life hasn’t yet been chosen, but there will be a teleport point set up at the doors of the large church building at Willoughby. If you have any questions, you may contact Wilfried Ansome inworld.
If you miss Paul for this unique event, he will also be speaking at the Christian Web Conference at Biola University in September, 2009. More information about that event at http://ChristianWebConference.com.
This event is hosted by the Anglican Ecumenical Society and tekklesia.com .
