Using Digital Media to Pull People from A World on Fire

Jill Van Nostran Digital Strategy

It just feels like the world is on fire. Terror attacks all over the world. Shootings. Mass shootings. Police ambushes. Attempted kidnappings—while parents stood nearby. Racism. Bullying. Trafficking. The list goes on. What in the world is happening?

Jesus promised in Matthew 24 that these things would happen. And it will get worse.


He also said in Matthew 24, “…the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” And in Matthew 28, “…Therefore go and make disciples of all nations….”

There is hope yet. In this fallen, broken, burning mess of a world, the Lord is still on His throne and He is still at work, and He still uses His people to accomplish His good purposes.

This is one reason why digital media—digital technology—is more important than ever. It’s powerful and research reveals over and again that it’s used by people of all ages, demographics and socioeconomic statuses and all over the world.

Therefore, digital media offers Christian-based companies, nonprofits, churches and ministries a life-saving tool to speak truth into broken hearts, to offer Hope to a world on fire.

A good digital strategy helps Christian-based organizations figure out a plan—who to reach and how. A good content marketing initiative helps them get found so they can give hope. A good analytics program will reveal which digital elements worked well and which didn’t—improvement is constant.

THIS is why MissionFound exists. THIS is why digital media, content marketing, analytics are critical. The world is burning, and we have much to offer those who hurt. We have tools to get found, give hope and speak truth even in those places where people are busy chasing Pokemon, testing new Snapchat filters or even posting propaganda and issuing threats. Even our quiet whisper of hope can speak volumes louder in the loudest of digital spaces.

Be on mission to use digital media as effectively as possible in order to get found and give hope.
