As a Christian I grew up in a community that valued the importance of a testimony from believers. The testimony acted and does even today as way to witness the marvelous works that God has done in their lives. The believers in a Christian circles had to tell their story of what God had done through forgiving, restoring and blessing in their lives. However, there are many testimonies we never heard or we will never hear because there was no other way open to tell the story.
Hoyt says that “The power of testimony is to give voice to the faith that lets people run on to see what the end’s gonna be.” I can attest that going to the digital ministry is a great idea especially to bring the many stories and testimonies of what is happening in the world. As we heard from the African children choir the world is a small village with technology. We cannot under estimate the witnessing that is happening when we send a message to the twitter, facebook or YouTube to share. The witnessing is not only through the preaching or songs but also the stories, pictures and videos that people are sharing every minute.
People from all culture have plunged themselves into the media ministry. I feel when the church goes in the digital ministry it is a very powerful way of bringing the presence of God before the world. It also symbolizes the church going where people are rather than only being in the four corners. There are many stories and images in our daily life and in the society that are shared in the media that could not be heard. I believe my presence after the experience in this class I will bring a better engagement in the digital ministries.
