Argentina churches train in digital outreach
The Mediterranean Argentine District held a training called “Communications in the Church: Preparing to Reach the Digital World” 25 May in Cordoba, Argentina. The training was organized by the district Nazarene Youth International and National Communications Ministry, and several churches from the district took part in the event.
This was the first digital communications development and training event on the district, and the goal was to teach participants how to effectively reach the digital world with the gospel.
National Communications Ministry Member Victor Hugo spoke at the event on the importance of preparing and producing materials that can spread the gospel through social media and other platforms. He also spoke on how to maximize existing audiovisual resources for evangelistic work and discipleship in local churches.
“We are living in a new time where the routine of people has changed, and the majority of people spend most of their time connected to the internet,” said Edivaldo Junior, district NYI president. “With this new reality, the church needs to take a new look at the strategies we are using for evangelism and to train leaders and produce dynamic content that will carry the gospel into digital platforms.”
