Mark 16:15 tells us to "Go into all the world. Go everywhere and announce the message of God’s good news to one and all". If there was ever a time where the world needs some good news, it's now! In a time where people are facing loneliness, mental health issues, debt, isolation, identity crisis and political instability, the church is uniquely positioned to provide an answer to those problems. What is the good news? The gospel! Jesus calls us to broadcast the gospel message far and wide and as those gifted with creative skills and talents, we can help our churches to use digital media & communications tools to do this.
