  • If you get your product out early you have a much greater chance of developing a following than if you wait until everyone and their brother has started doing something in that area. The YouVersion Bible app is a perfect example. Developed before the iPhone was released it was one of the only Bible apps early on and has remained in the top ten free reference apps in iTunes ever since. Try to do that today and you’re going up against 800,000 other apps!
  • I cover this further in the media section
  • Covered further in the media section
  • Why would I have this picture here (see the next slide)
  • In many ways the mobile phone might as well be physically attached to most people. It is the last thing put aside at night and first thing picked up in the morning by many. Studies show that many people never allow their phone to be more than nine feet away from them.
  • Mobile is intrinsically interactive.
  • The phone is the piece of technology people are most psychologically attached to, going so far as to purchase devices that they feel represent who they are or aspire to be and then personalizing them with “skins” and ringtones that even more fully express their being or aspirations.
  • I have been told that the psychosocial attachment with one’s mobile phone is so strong in Kenya that the bride and groom actually carry their phones with them as they walk down the aisle (perhaps to show their status/identity?)
  • If you want to do something on a cell phone, as long as it is a phone that doesn’t have too much “wow that’s an expensive device” factor, the device itself feels local to the people (whether or not the media you share on it does is entirely another matter)

  • Caveat that seven billion mobile phone subscriptions doesn’t mean seven billion mobile phone users- that number is closer to 4.3 billion and somewhere around 5.2 billion phones in use.
  • India's mobile subscribers totalled 563.73 million at the last count, enough to serve nearly half of the country's 1.2 billion population. But just 366 million people - around a third of the population - had access to proper sanitation in 2008, said the study published by the United Nations University, a UN think-tank
    This disparity is only growing worse as India adds nearly 20 million new mobile phone subscriptions a month!
  • Computed using figures for population growth for X year versus growth in mobile phone subscriptions in the same year (I can’t recall which year I used now). Divide each figure by 365 days x 24 hours per day x 60 minutes per hour to get the population growth per minute and number of new mobile phone subscriptions per minute.
  • This is a crazy slide that seeks to show how you, the missionary (the yellow circle towards the center of the screen), have a set of relationships that more fully live within their own circles of relationship. You can share the gospel with them but seeing the gospel move from them into their circles of relationship is vitally important.
    Bluetooth transfer of gospel media (the arrows) allows your contacts to share what they’ve heard and seen from you on to their relatives and friends and it can potentially even move several degrees of separation away from you to people that otherwise would have never had a chance to interact with your or your team members but now can still be confronted with the gospel via the mobile phone’s screen and speakers.

  • Based on Tomi Ahonen comments and supported by reports such as this one found in USA Today in 2005 (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/tech/techinvestor/2004-05-14-digicams_x.htm). The most accurate statistic I can find on analog and digital phone sales for 2004 indicates a total of 119 million cameras sold (http://www.statista.com/statistics/269927/sales-of-analog-and-digital-cameras-worldwide-since-2002/).

  • The mobile phone is even more radical of a development than the invention of the Gutenberg Press. While the Gutenberg Press enabled a revolution in media for the well off and literate, the mobile phone’s media producing capabilities offers a similar revolution for the poor and illiterate masses!
  • Anyone with a camera phone and access to a computer and/or internet access can now become a media mogul.
  • We are still in a situation in the emerging world and among most “smaller” languages (i.e. not in the top 10-20 languages in use in the world) where there is fairly little “competition” for video in their heart language. https://gsmaintelligence.com/files/analysis/?file=130828-scaling-mobile.pdf
  • Video creation can be as simple as taking several images, adding narration, and converting the combination into a video utilizing such programs as PowerPoint 2010 or the free Microsoft PhotoStory 3. Open source Bible images like this can be found at www.freebibleimages.org

    50. 50. The Smallest Screen is the Biggest Screen in the World
    51. 51. Mobile Media Has Revolutionary Power
    52. 52. Benefits of Mobile Media Ministry • Available To potential content consumers, share-ers, and creators. Available not only in terms of ownership but also presence-it is the device that is always with you. • Affordable (to ministries and users) No need to provide recipients with the hardware or maintain it- they already have the device and will maintain and replace it themselves. With digital downloads there is also little need to provide the media on any kind of physical item (microSD card being the main exception).
    53. 53. Benefits of Mobile Media Ministry • Interactive It inherently is interactive with text, talk, social media, etc. • Viral Media on mobile devices can be virally from device to device using their inbuilt Bluetooth transmission functionality • Reproducible Local/new believers can replicate and create more of their own (both exact copies and creation of similar media) especially if intentionally done with reproducibility in mind
    54. 54. Benefits of Mobile Media Ministry • Connected Allows for uploading, discovery and/or downloading of media • Easy to use Due to users’ ownership/familiarity with the medium there are low training requirements • Portable and “Stealthy” It can go/get into almost anywhere
    55. 55. Benefits of Mobile Media Ministry • High Quality Video For both consumption and HD quality audio and video creation • Special media creation characteristics  The mobile’s size allows the shooting of innovative shots from unique places/angles  It is discrete and doesn’t draw attention to itself or the fact media is being created.  It is non-threatening to those being filmed
    56. 56. Benefits of Mobile Media Ministry • Special media creation characteristics (continued)  A fast turnaround for filming/editing/uploading with ability to record and either livestream or edit on the device and upload within minutes
    57. 57. Potential Drawbacks of Mobile Media Ministry • Security Concerns Not only can Christian media on it be discovered if not stored safely/securely but the device can be used to spy against its user through (among other things): - Tracking/recording phone calls, internet usage and text messages - Recording of off-phone conversations by remotely turning on the phone’s microphone - Tracking users movements using cell tower triangulation or GPS location recording.
    58. 58. Potential Drawbacks of Mobile Media Ministry • Security Concerns In restricted access/persecution situations Christian media may be relatively easy to discovered on the device if not stored safely/securely • Less-than-Ideal Viewing Experience While the quality and size of mobile device screens are growing the small size of the screen as well as limited power of device speakers can make for a poor viewing experience.
    59. 59. Potential Drawbacks of Mobile Media Ministry • Individualistic, not Community Medium While enabling a private viewing experience may be a good thing at times, the Christian faith is community-centric and God’s sheep do best as a flock rather than as individual units out among the wolves!
    60. 60. Potential Drawbacks of Mobile Media Ministry • A mobile is not the best media recorder possible  Shaky footage  Poor quality audio  Not great in low light  No optical zoom  Exposure issues with subject being blown out or a silhouette  Limited ability of iris, focus controls, and zoom  Limited memory/storage
