CCC BackgroundOur 20 years as fulltime staff with CCC hasreally shaped our lives. The principlesbeing taught by CCC will forever be part ofus, as it is DEEPLY ENGRAVED in ourhearts.Today Magdaleen and myself are stillworking to the fulfillment of the GreatCommission in the Internet Ministry.
During 2006 I got increasingly fascinated by the Internet Ministry. While listening to the fundies at the 2007 MinistryNet Conference in Bangkok, I realised that the possibilities of the Internet Mininstry are endless.
The Internet ministry is not about web sites, but it is about a Web Ministry. Many web sites are all about content - with no interaction at all, but in a Web Ministry, it is all about interaction which leads to spiritual growth. This communicates and encourages a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We make use of a variety of stepping stones: True to CCC is the words: Win, Build, Train & Send In the Internet Ministry we use several methods or stepping stones which have an impact on people, (not only the 4SL on a Web page – that is too impersonal), but rather different ways to present the gospel.
We see our role not as counsellors, or MISTER KNOW IT ALL, but rather in: Walking alongside the person, trying to hear what they say, making sure of their relationship with Christ, giving suggestions, material & links to other web sites and organisations (NETWORKING!!), praying with the people, inviting them to contact again, if necessary and, challenging the new Christians to become involved in an online study.
We try to accommodate the visitor in a medium that suits him. If it is Skype, we Skype, Chat, E-mails, Forums, Blogs to interact, etc. E-Learning is very effective. Universities & colleges increasingly use it as an add-on to courses. We also use it for online training. It is an excellent tool to connect with students for a period of 4 to 10 weeks…
With the Upcoming Events module in Drupal, all the online trainers will have the opportunity to advertise his/her training opportunities scheduled for the year. They can even decide on the amount of students. Visitors enrol online (no secretary) and every applicant receives a personal password, linked to his course and trainer, with automatic reminders. TIHM’s web site is unique in the sense that the participants of the different trainers/mentors never get mixed up. In this way, staff can have online ministries, linked to them individually.
