Likes to Leaders: Turning social media into on-the-ground ministry opportunities – Andrew and Cindy Johnston, Room 181
How did we get 1.3 million people following “Academia Cristo” on social media in Latin America? Does that even matter or mean anything? How can social media followers become actual, on-the-ground people gathering around the means of grace? This presentation dives into our WELS mission work in Latin America specifically discussing a strategy of using everyday means of communication to reach people and plant churches. And, since the presenters are a couple who have spent most of the last 20 years in various foreign mission field, we will also touch on what it’s like to serve in a foreign field.
Evangelism in Times of Crisis – Prof. Ross Stelljes, Room 177
“God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform,” including during times of crisis. Listen to real-life stories of personal crises in the lives of members, prospective members, and called workers, and see how God used these crises to open doors for gospel witnessing.
