You are very isolated, elderly or disabled You are being persecuted You are in a Creative Access Nation You cannot afford brick and mortar structures You are highly literate and computer savvy You feel that you do not belong in Church

The Church in your area is apostate / in error The Only Open Door In North Africa and the Middle East the digital pathway may be the ONLY pathway to Christ. You cannot ask believers to publicly walk the sawdust trail. Social media and satellite TV are the main means that Muslims turn to

Christ in many counties. We need to keep this door open! Where Do They Study? In most parts of the developing world there are very few good bible colleges However Christians can read ebooks and articles, study courses, watch videos and listen to MP3 files on their tablets, computers and smartphones.

They can access the best teaching around the world this way. It is quite inexpensive to deliver Big Ideas The digital pathway may soon become the majority pathway in the Majority World. It will soon deliver the vast bulk of grassroots theological education.

Already people converted online are being channeled into bible study groups and churches. Church-planting now begins with a digital touch! Information Is Digital Impartation Is Spiritual Formation Is Personal Transformation Is Communal
