Digital evangelism?

Religion News Service continues to deliver interesting content. On his blog, On Freedom, Brian Pellot examines the role of digital media in the growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to Brian, Missionary Chat has been a wild success since its launch in 2008. “Hundreds of baptisms have resulted from conversations that began on Missionary Chat in the past five years, and up to 5000 strangers sign in each month,” he says.

Perhaps Mormon-style Missionary Chat is not really our thing, but it does highlight that the way people communicate is changing.

How can you use your online presence to talk about the things that are important to you? Have you ever seen a church or other community group use digital media in interesting or inspiring ways?
