That We Would Be
Like the Men of
Issachar
“men who understood the
times and knew what Israel
should do”
1 Chron. 12:31
And people from
every tongue, tribe
and nation…
86% or more of these
religionists [Buddhists,
Hindus and Muslims] globally
do not personally know a
Christian.
In 2013, the number of mobile-
cellular subscriptions reaches
6.8 billion, corresponding to a
global penetration of 96%
International Telecommunications Union
For the earth will be filled
with the knowledge of
the glory of the LORD as
the waters cover the sea.
Habakkuk 2:14
Abu Mohammed
Your Stories
How have you seen mobile impacting
the lives of your people?
How have you seen God use mobile to
bring glory to Himself?

The Vision
That every unreached
person have the chance to
encounter Jesus and His
kingdom in a compelling,
contextualized fashion
through their personal
mobile device by the end
of 2020.
Yawn
Yet another set-up for an
epic fail…
What’s different about this
one?
Hope for the Vision
1) Our potential media access to every
people (ethne) of the earth is
unparalleled in history.
? B.C.

7 Billion
2005
2013
Reasons for Hope
2) “Crowd-sourcing” Bible translation is
a growing opportunity.
Reasons for Hope
3) The mobile enables on-the-ground
production of locally appropriate
media.
2004
100 million cameras
of any type were sold in
the world
1.5 Billion phones with cameras
were sold in 2012 alone!
Reasons for Hope
4) Mobile has its own built-in
distribution mechanisms
that allow for “viral”
transmission of media.
Purdue University’s
Experience in Nigeria
Reasons for Hope
5) The missions world is networking
and partnering together!

The Vision
That every unreached
person have the chance to
encounter Jesus and His
kingdom in a compelling,
contextualized fashion
through their personal
mobile device by the end
of 2020.
Potential Barriers
1) Focusing on smartphones and
smartphone apps to the exclusion
of 70% of all phones in use today!
The Mobile Ecosystem
(current as of Q4 2013)
“No phone left behind”
Potential Barriers
2) Focusing on internet-based
outreach and leaving behind those
living “beyond the internet”

Potential Barriers
3) Media ministries remaining in a
media producer, rather than media
enabler, paradigm.
Potential Barriers
4) Security issues that can prevent us
from implementing mobile ministry
and threaten those reached
through it.
Potential Barriers
5) Copyright restrictions that keep the
Bible and other outreach media
locked down so that it cannot:
a) Be modified to work on phones,
put into audio form, translated,
etc.
b) Flow freely from phone to phone
But what about
sustainability?
But seek first his kingdom and his
righteousness, and all these things
will be given to you as well.
Matthew 6:33
The most likely
point of failure!

Some trust in chariots and

Understanding the Times Through Mobile Ministry

Editor's Notes

  1. http://www.internationalbulletin.org/system/files/2010-01-029-johnson.html
  2. Drink Coca Cola
  3. Smoke Cigarettes
  4. Talk on Cell phones. Could one of these three be a vehicle God has given us to use for the spread of His glory?
  5. http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Statistics/Pages/stat/default.aspx
  6. Could it be that mobile technology could be one of the ways God intends to fulfill this promise?
  7. A wonderful 35 hour dramatized “mini-Bible” was developed for one outreach but was not able to be utilized after it was belatedly realized that the intended recipients did not have access to working audio players- whether tape or CD
  8. The nomads, whose lives were still very similar to Abraham’s of the Old Testament, were changing. One proof was that sometimes, rather than them riding their camels, their camels now rode in pickups.
  9. The nomads stopped setting up their tents where they could find water and started setting them up where they could find phone coverage.
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uyc7c6nUtMM
  11. When we sent the materials we had been using in the Arab worldto Chad a local Quranic teacher got so excited about the videos that he started selling them from his kiosk store!
  12. While we had come to see that the nomads we were working with had begun setting up their tents where they could get phone reception rather than where they could find water, it was interesting to find that the same thing was happening halfway around the world in Mongolia as they set up their yurts where they could find cell phone reception.
  13. Mobile Advance is a “one man band” operation within WEC International.
  14. A small cog in a large “machine”
  15. First mobile phone is sold.
  16. 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.

  23. The $25 Firefox smartphone that was just announced. Potential game-changer BUT will they be able to produce it in massive quantities? Will they be able to distribute it across dozens of countries?
  24. Dumb phones and feature phones provide plenty of tools that the Church can take advantage of even without apps
  25. Don’t leave him behind!
  26. Kyrgyz herders in the mountains of Afghanistan. Their phone isn’t a phone to them. It’s a media player as there is no cell coverage, nor internet coverage where they are. Yet it is a cherished device for them for the media capabilities it brings with it.
  27. But what about all the wild and crazy plans to cover the earth with internet with satellites, balloons, solar powered planes, etc. that will transmit internet signal to the last and the least (efforts led by Google and Facebook)? I was told at this same conference in 2010 that the world would be covered with internet by the end of 2010 due to efforts like these- how’s that working out for you? I can tell you lots of places and peoples that still have no internet.

  32. Copyright restrictions will be the most likely cause of the MMF’s 2020 vision not being realized.
  33. Please take this rewriting of the verse with a sense of humor but also as a reminder that our trust MUST always be in God Himself, not anything of this earth.
