Christian Missions, Christian Non profits, and Social Networking
Social Networking and Social Media Technology in Christian Missions
Now more than ever the barriers to global communications are coming down as social media and social networking go mainstream. The effect of these changes is increasingly being felt in Christian Missions and Christian non profits. One example of the use of Ning by Helping Hands International.
I think the value of Ning and social media communications for missions extends beyond its use by Helping Hands International. For instance, a community which allowed Christian non profits and others that serve the bottom of the pyramid would be incredibly helpful. Also, with the rise of the Business as Missions movement, the outreach and collaboration opportunities for charities and non profits that are financially strapped is increasing.
Check out the missions and social justice opportunities for the Christian nonprofit Helping Hands International who works in Baja Mexico, Kenya, Uganda, Dominican Republic, San Francisco, Honduras, Guadalara, and Bosnia.
