“I’m excited! If we get this right, the sheer number of people we can reach with the gospel is incredible,” says Mark Greenwood. He is discussing Elim’s new four-month, three-part online mission programme, Really Good News, which is now in full swing and running until July.
It’s not the first time Elim has launched something like this, Mark explains, because churches were offered a package of online resources last year through the Elim Summertime and Elim Christmastime programmes. But with three parts to the line-up this time – a month of daily snapshot testimony videos, online Easter services and a national Alpha course – Really Good News offers a 2 much bigger programme. It’s also an exciting taste of the future, he says.
“This isn’t a one-off – it’s a recognition for Elim that the online world is here to stay. We’re going to be moving forward with online mission and Really Good News is the beginning of us having a strategic and intentional presence online that will help people find Jesus.
“Just think – if every person in an Elim church invited or shared the gospel with one person through Really Good News, we would reach as many people with the gospel as attend Elim churches.”
Here, we take a look inside Really Good News to see what’s on offer to share with your churches, friends and family.
PART 1 – MARCH-APRIL VIDEO TESTIMONIES
Every day in the run-up to Easter a short, lively video testimony is being released via social media and on Elim’s website, showing how God has impacted lives in varied and remarkable ways. These videos will be included in the Really Good News Easter services and Alpha too. Check them out at elim.org.uk/reallygoodnews and share them via social media.
