Most of the 43 nations are difficult to reach
by conventional missionary strategies.
But they have enough Internet connectivity
to see people saved and to start a churchplanting movement.
We can reach the unreached
through cybermissions.
China
Company

China is rapidly adopting the Internet and has
44.8 million Internet users.
China has one main language which makes
reaching Chinese online relatively easy.
China is closed to normal missionary efforts.
China has well-networked house churches that
need teaching and training and can pass
downloaded material to others.
English lessons online will attract many mainland
Chinese.
There are many Chinese churches in the West
that are well able to take up this challenge.
India
Company

major Internet and technology city in
Bangalore.
The Internet-connected are mainly
English-speaking and tend to be
community leaders.

among the upper-castes but the Internet
can reach them.
Malaysia
Company

Malaysia is a progressive Muslim nation
with a high-tech corridor of development in
Cyberjaya.
While there are many good churches the
Christian population is relatively small and
is not allowed to witness to Muslims.
Internet discussions can help Muslims
curious about Jesus to find faith in Him.

Online-Offline
Company

Cybermissionaries do not just operate on
their own, they frequently partner with
churches and mission agencies to help
complete The Great Commission.
Some cybermissionaries also go and visit
the people they have met online and
combine online ministry and short-term
missions.
Starting Out
Company
logo here
Go to http://www.cybermissions.org/ and read
the articles.
Pray about what God would have you to do.
Go online regularly (4 hrs a week) and find
where you fit in online ministry. Do you prefer
using chat rooms, web pages, email, bulletin
boards, forums, egroups, or online testimonies?
Take the 12 week “Training In Cybermissions”
course if you can (www.cybermissions.org/training/ ).
Get three or four others involved plus the prayer
support of your pastor.
Start slowly and take a “low cost” approach.
Targeting
Company
logo here
As you gain experience ask the Lord to lead
you to a particular group of people online
that He wants you to learn to minister to.
Find out where they are online – their
discussion groups, bulletin boards, chat
rooms and favorite web pages.
Go and join them where they are.
Maybe you can also build a
specialized web page around
their interests.
