 Hebrews 11:1

AUDIO

Welcome. VerseStudywe will be going through the #promisesofGod over the next few weeks, grouped into themes. We shall refer to the KJV version, but may also refer to others . We recommend using a site like BIBLEGATEWAY through which you can compare different versions of translations.

We also recommend a good free bible tool such as E-SWORD, in which you may make study notes.

If you commit to memory the verses and specific promises; you will have store of knowledge and wisdom that will serve you well and also uplift you. You may use the verses to meditate on – in quiet reflection time; after praise and worship; for personal study. put them on a post-it to help memorization; add to a corkboard or wall [ we recommend the following sites : PADLET  SPAAZE LINO.IT CORKBOARD.ME  and, also, for arranging tree diagrams and radial info webs… PEARLTREES   put on a virtual fridgemagnet wall MAGNOTO.] …which can be fun for learning.

we also recommend getting a good THESAURUS and DICTIONARY… as studying other meanings of similar words may also open up new understanding as you consider why the specific word in scripture was used.

Later on, we may link these posts to practical exercises, studies, and other digital media.

ASSURANCE

ROM 8:38-39

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

**INTERNATIONAL INTERNET OUTREACH DAY is JUNE 1st**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

It has been over year designing the infrastructure of our internet outreach, and networking to widen our potential output.

 

Success so far, by The Lord’s Blessing

Our main blog has been followed by 770+ people;

Last year, our poems on slideshare hit the top 5% of looked at content globally… which is an incredible achievement only attributable to our Lord’s blessing.

Through connections on a professional site, we potentially may be read by over 11 million professionals, most of whom are scattered around the globe; through another site, potential reach of a figure of a good 5 million .

 

Over 60 % of the interest in what we are doing stems from America, East and West Coast, and particularly California.

Despite reducing hours, the Lord’s blessing remains; on average we hold a position globally among a group of online marketers and business folk of between approx 9TH and 16th place, and about ON AVERAGE BETWEEN 7th to 2nd place in the UK among the same group. These people are leading business start up advisors, marketers, social media moguls and influencers (!)

 

It has taken about a year to understand the internet and how it operates; how best to maintain visibility, and how social sites operate.

 

We have a large presence now on the internet for such a small church… this is needed ready for outreach to the world and every nation.

 

 

 

We must be ready for revival

If we believe truly that we will see revival…then we must prepare ourselves for what that revival will bring, and also be ready to be amenable to hearing the Word of the Lord and moving in the flow of the Holy Spirit.

 

Over the last year there has been considerable confirmation in the Word and scripture given in our Sunday sermons, from speakers, through prayer and through waiting on the Lord.

 

Noah was told to build an Ark… in a land that had not seen rain. Similarly, our outreach seems a large task, which would easily become discarded through discouragement – however, whenever such threatened, the Gracious Lord gave encouragement, a Word given, or, as has happened on many occasions, we have had some submissions for us to post. To walk in faith does not mean that we know what lies ahead…it means we trust the Lord to guide us- with milestones and illumination along the road we travel, such are the blessing of encouragements and confirmations which the Holy Spirit has given us in our outreach.

 

Soon (in a few months time) we will be utilising the full potential of the computer gifted us; this means eventually video; graphics; art; slideshows , digital news/ezines and much more… Roly, impassioned in preaching, Spoke over our congregation and gave a Word instructing us to use the computer for the Work of the Lord that he has set before us; others too.

 

Progress through prayer

Our webdesigner, Jim, has had to seek vision and advice, through prayer. In fact… if the prayer is not maintained, the computer goes down, fails to work or other glitches occur: this, the unexpected success online, and confirmation given in inspired sermons, has proven that indeed there is God’s purpose in the outreach- we have learnt a lot in but one year alone; and thanks be to God for the wonderful support, trust and love within the Fellowship.

 

Our fellowship has been growing and making progress for the Lord- it has not been easy, nor without major challenges, as one might expect. We have ‘claimed’ a large amount of ‘ground’ for Jesus on the internet, which will get used, for His glory and to enlarge His Kingdom.

 

Effectively, we are only online twice a week; which is a minimal time considering the amount of time most people spend online. It has however slowed the rate of completion.

 

Our Audio facilities

During the last year we have had our speakers sorted, and Tony has helped to balance out our audio (an answer to prayer, and another blessing!)… we will eventually be recording sermons and editing for the internet. Look out Dave, Peter and (“New”) Dave (!)

 

We are NOT Hollywood (!) … it will take time, but we will discover our own style and pitch online for audio, podcasts etc. More and more churches are putting their sermons online for those who miss a Sunday, or are housebound, for study, or to outreach. We will go ahead through prayer, and seeking the Lord’s will on each thing…at His pace.

Our Main site

Our main site continues to output posters, our church events and dnotices as directed by our eldership; our facebook page for the church as a whole is quieter;

The Children’s ministry/Tiny Toes and the Childrens’ monthly service is more active as the parents are more internet aware

 

Building for The Kingdom, embracing Ministries and change

There are several different ministries within our Fellowship, and it has been necessary to compartmentalise different internet resources for those ministries, and to embrace the move of the Holy Spirit and giftings within the fellowship, while remaining flexible enough to adapt sites to where we are lead(!)

 

We are blessed by having strong links to IBTI and of course Mattersley, through the AOG, and also personal links within the fellowship. In outreaching and designing a learning resource platform [the suite of websites necessary to promote learning], we are NOT trying to be a college, nor are we going into formal tuition (as tutors) across the internet – we are building a body of knowledge as a learning resource.

 

Should the Lord lead, and gift one of our congregation with the specific gifts of internet teaching/ youth ministry, then we may expand in that direction

 

Why our internet presence covers many online areas

… in order to source up-to-date information and relevant materials, we have had to join online a number of different communities; thus we have sites to do with education, technical sites, sites specifically on marketing and internet reach, Journalism or E-zine publication, Music sites ( to embrace the music ministry which is building), Art sites (as our webdesigner is also a graphic artist…) Craft sites, to promote banner making…and of course those sites necessary for maintainence of the web, and knowledge/information ‘curation’, storage and archiving…

In short a complete system and infrastructure.

 

A global move of the Spirit, stirring?

Online, we have connected to many pastors globally; some of whom are beginning ministries and gospel outreach to India, Pakistan, Iran, central and southern Africa, Burma … thereseems to be a GLOBAL move of the Holy Spirit to spread the WORD to all nations. Our web admin Jim, was given a vision of bikers with bibles travelling to the Eastern European and African states- and spoke of it to one of the admins on Faithful Earth, only to be told that that admin was discussing –and planning that day-that very mission with associates . It is truly humbling to be used by the Lord to give simple encouragement, witness and confirmation.

 

As Peter our Pastor said- if God puts something on your heart- listen to it, and don’t give up on it, see it through!

 

We might truly believe we may be seeing the start of breath of God on the embers that will flare into full, Global Revival…and probably something even more exciting than we can imagine; and yet on the converse we are seeing such things in the world as are spoken of in the last chapters of the bible.

 

Why create an online resource?

Other than the obvious- that in the course of building the website for our fellowship, it evolved through prayer and obedience to the preached Word- should our online resource become completed, then we will have built an ongoing scriptural knowledge base for the whole of Christendom, globally, world wide, at a basic introductory level, and also another at a level for more mature, progressed, Christians, which is totally free, and accessable by all.

 

We only need to write and produce simple, down to earth, grounded and scripturally correct media and materials – nothing too fancy… as there is a definite need globally for the 13 to Adult range of online internet users to be able to access easily understandable Christian materials. This does involve (however) writing lesson plans and developing good filing and information/ data handling skills.

 

“My people perish for a lack of Knowledge”… It is not a question of regurgitating scripture; of learning Victorian parrot-fashion; but of providing the milk, meat and fruit of scripture and sharing the wealth of Knowledge of the Lord in one’s own life… people need to find how to have relationship with God; to be born again, filled with the Spirit, on Fire for the Lord. In short: share what Jesus has done for us, and what He means to us, and WHY He is important to know, and know about.

 

forthcoming

 

As our community poets submit work; we will upload and illustrate poems and articles. We are building an online poetry/Art community.

 

We will be outputting reading plans weekly, to encourage reading the scriptures;   we may follow the church of England Lectionary for suggestions of daily readings to provide a basic ground of output material. In addition we will output those texts and scriptures we are moved to share by the Holy Spirit. We hope to post daily meditations, prayers, thoughts for the day, daily scriptures, in addition to educational posts, worship related items and more.

 

We will also soon be putting online a series of scriptures detailing the blessings of God of various types, on permanent roll-over every 26 weeks, and looking to create permanent roll-out media/courses that may be followed by anyone globally.

 

Work , ongoing, so far

Working out scheduling has been a nightmare. Adapting ready for global scheduling for across 38 Time Zones and over 200 nations has been brain-boiling… Digesting the national curriculum keystage 3 & 4 guidelines, FENTO standards [further ed. Teaching] and more, working out templates for each digital media, and the skeleton framework of a basic curriculum has been challenging… we are NOW writing it up, for submission to the elders over the next few weeks.

 

Our web admin is partway through collating concordances to aide production of digital media with correct scripture references.A thankless task, but vital.

 

We have a number of websites for listening to online praise and worship, and are developing a youtube channel to that same end, along with other youtube channels dedicated to streaming information.

 

As yet we are not in a position to run the internet radio sites we have laid up for later development, yet in time they will become used. We have started to network and make contact with Christian broadcasters across the globe.

 

Worldwide outreach:

VERY literally, on the internet, we will be preaching the Gospel to all nations (over 220 according to the Philip’s Atlas) and going into ALL the world (across approx.38 or so TimeZones). Through various sites we have facility for podcasts and audio posts…which can be linked to through our blog and other main sites.

 

Claiming ground back for Christ!

Our outreach has also created bulkheads into other areas, claiming ground for Christ Jesus: we have a page on the main ‘spiritual sites’ network in India, to continue the outreach and connection of our senior, retired Pastor, Peter saunders to India, through which we shall spread the Gospel message, bolstered by prayer; and another on a western ‘spiritual networks’ site, will spread the Gospel message among “New-Agers”.

 

Recent internet security instabilities have slowed the development of a page in Japan, as the host site is not seen as secure enough…advice is being sought, as it would be good to outreach into the Orient. We have also opend a page in Russia, ready to encourage evangelism in the Soviet States, undaunted by recent politics.

 

Outreach building

Through contacts in Africa, we may be able to outreach to Malawi, South Africa, Kenya, and surrounding states; and possibly Sierra Leone and the East African coast.

It is quite likely that some Churches, study groups and orphanages in Africa and the Middle East/ Indies may use our media.

 

Although this outreach may sound daunting; it is simply a matter of gradually building content online, and using the internet as an effective tool – to be ‘as wise as serpents, as gentle as doves’ IN the World, but not OF it.

 

Equally, our outreach is only possible through a stable base of prayer within our Fellowship and Church, through seeking the Lord, and the guidance and overview of our Eldership. Your prayers are truly needed.

 

Keeping up with old friends

Through the internet we have kept in touch with Harry and Lesley, who are currently in USA for YWAM teaching the “Mission As Business” course, and who are active in mission work in the Philippines.

 

Our OWN forthcoming article, digital media and course content will be driven through prayer, using resources and books we have to write from, including topical concordances, the Thompson chain reference system and a number of other reference texts and commentaries, checked over by our leadership. We do not need to worry about running out of subjects; we have a list of over 2000(!) which have to fitted into the overall curriculum framework, which is as like to develop and change as we go along as the guidance of the Holy Spirit leads.

 

Yours in Faith,

and Christ,

Assemblies of God Philippines appeal

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters in the Philippines, and all affected by the events there.

The Assemblies of God (UK)  have launched their “Typhoon Haiyan Appeal” as follows

“by now you’ve probably seen and heard the graphic reports about the overwhelming devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. On Friday 170mph winds ravaged towns and cities. Initial estimates indicate that at least 10,000 people have died in Tacloban City alone. Other towns situated in Leyte Province like Baco are completely underwater. There are 600,000 homeless people in this area.

The numbers will escalate and the real level of loss will be revealed  with every hour that passes. Desperate families have lost their homes and all their possessions and they need our help now to survive in the aftermath of this tragedy.

Our partners in the Philippines including the AOG church leaders, are located on the ground and are able to respond. We aim to assist thousands of people in the Philippines with food, water, clothing and shelter.

Its a race against the clock! Please help provide life-saving relief to children and families affected by this disaster in the Philippines.

Here is what our missionaries plan to do with the money that we send:

1. Relief Operation Stage:
(Food/Water going on along with medical teams as needed) This is only for a short time and since government and most NGO’s are engaged in this, duplication is not necessary.

2. Rehabilitation Stage.
As urgent as #1, the need for shelter and housing would be the biggest hurdle, but the most strategic in helping the brethren. Shelters: thousand lost their homes, and impossible to retrieve the materials. They cannot stay for long in evacuation centers (which is already clogging and diseases can erupt anytime). We must help purchase housing materials. Rationale: If our church people can be helped this way, we can free them to help others in their communities. Let’s rehabilitate their churches and their homes.

3. Recovery Stage.
Let’s also help those who lost their livelihood and their savings. Farmers lost their crops and fishermen their boats. It is strategic to help them bounce back in order to be productive again. Most victims lost hope when they lose their chance to recover economically. (in Japan, they just commit suicide). A little capitalization to restart seeds, or whatever would empower our people.

In many ways the suffering of those who survived this disaster is only just beginning, so Iet’s act today and help save precious lives. Why not consider receiving a special offering this Sunday at the end of your service.

To donate finance to this cause you can give on our donate page, or call or send a cheque made out to Assemblies of God to our National Ministry Centre. ”

Our Fellowship has strong links with the Philippines, with missionaries currently over there.

Please pray for everyone affected and also all those giving help.

Every monday, we hope to post a link to some of the Christian Music Groups, online radio stations, Myspace musicians and others we have encountered online. There is a large range of musical talent, and many different genres, which may or may not be to everyone’s taste, preference of musical style or other considerations.

Thank you also all those musicians on Soundcloud who have shared music via Soundcloud.

Street pastors commisioning

We are pleased to announce that one of our congregation is becoming a street pastor.

It is a witness to The Lord, that the faith of the street pastors in praying for the streets and towns they work in, and also by them simply being a presence, founded in faith in Christ, lending an ear, supporting through prayer, or the countless other simple ways they show the Love of christ that since the beginning of the street pastors projects, crime in our town centre has dropped by 20%.

find out more about street pastors through this link: VISIT STREET PASTORS SITE

StreetPastorCommissioningPoster

Street pastors put in more than the hours you see them on the streets: it is a vocation; there is training involved, prayer coverage given (some streetpastors pray for the safety well being and peace of all folk encountered during their rounds, while the others are on duty on the streets) and careful selection and screening of streetpastors is undertaken owing to the responsibility a streetpastor represents.

nationally, streetpastors have built goodwill throughout the communities they represent, and are supported in more than 100 towns. The scheme itself is bigger than just national.

Our prayers are with street pastors everywhere, and our praise to the Lord that he has provided these people for ministry: may the Lord bless them and those they meet, that they may feel the touch of God, the peace of Christ, and the everlasting love of our Heavenly Father as a blessing; that when they walk through the night dark streets,they walk ever in and with Jesus, whose light touches and heals lives. Amen

We now have 19 people following our soundcloud site,
and are beginning to get tracks shared to us: the genres of music tend towards contemporary, with a large range of styles – and are still working our way through the 49 or so ‘Christian’ music communities on SoundCloud that we have joined…Find us on soundcloud HERE

We are slowly finding our way through Last.FM, and are beginning to build a song library on Last.FM, early days yet…but hope to build a respectable popular praise & worship collection together online.

Full Media Outreach

Welcome, to keep you uptodate with how we are progressing, here is a visual to show you just how far across the internet we have grown our site so that it can deliver all types of media:
Podcasts – for the word
Video Sites –
Graphics sites

Blogsites so that we can concentrate specific topics through various feeds/sites/areas

Audio sites like Souncloud where we joined nearly 50 groups of assorted christian genres..

following “Go ye into all the world” – we have gone into networking across the internet, building a presence ready for our fellowship to start to publish media, poetry, graphics, art, and more for inspiring faith
Full Media Outreach

Click on one of the links above.
God bless!
We will create graphic diagrams and more soon, describing the media strategy/ outreach… and we are also looking at producing our media, articles, newsletters, and videos.

UPDATE

Thank you for all the interest and encouragement everyone has shown… we are continuing with our web outreach, and have just finished a week of prayer and will be assimilating the inspirations which have come.

We are now just past the 6 month mark; and our website builds are going well.

We have a permanent facebook page for the fellowship – we need further likes to unlock various functions; slowly it is building and getting noticed.

we hope to use facebook as one site where we may post links to articles; music; art;

it also links to our bandpage which draws from our soundcloud site.

Through soundcloud we have joined about 50 Christian music groups.

Our twitter page grows at one to three people daily; and we will increase our tweets soon; our mentions; thanks; retweets; scripture quotes and more.

twitter, like facebook, can cope with up to about 5,000 “followers”.  After the first 200 it becomes very unweildy to maintain and track; so we have made use of several analytic programs. Our hearts are on completing the project to bring the Word of the Lord, Witness and scipture, teaching (free) encouragement and inspiration to the World.

Our Pinterest sites are earmarked for graphic development and outreach materials

The internet sadly is a place where ego is exalted… in order to build the website it has been difficult – the internet tries to glamourise the ‘friend’-ing system. Our hope is not that people follow us at all- but that they are interested in following Our Lord: to Him is all Honour and glory due. It is through humble prayer that we approach any work for The Lord.

Amazingly, our largest interest is from  California, and approx 70% of our audience is male! We have also discovered a Christian social network mostly based in USA with over 20,000 members – and are looking to outreach, fellowship and befriend our brothers and sisters globally.

Our name change from BCFHastings to BCFHastings AOG- has meant we are behind in completing the site graphics which have to be changed. And when we talk of “site graphics”; we mean the whole suite of sites connected!! The change was thought prudent as there were three other instances of BCFHastings as names which came to light later- although they were not pentecostal churches.

Our Tumblr site is earmarked for Art, graphics, sound, media… and also for interactive annotated images using a “new” use of web technology called “thinglink” which will revolutionise info-graphics, teaching, and evangelism [annotated images explaining The Cross, God’s plan for Salvation… etc] … follow our Tumblr Blog and in time you will see a fine crop of images and scripture linked together.

Our Soundcloud sites are mostly quiet and will be developed more when the lord brings more musical inspiration to bear. We would to hear of musicians who would like to share their Christian music with us; equally, we would like to hear of favourite Christian Bands Artists, musicians, Songs, hymns, and labels.

We have opened up some sites that run music in the browser, to encourage praise and worship. Please send usdetails of your favourite songs and hymns, artists etc- so that we may start to build our music libraries to the Glory of our Lord.

Please use the form above to send us details 🙂

OUR internet radio outreach includes

  • LAST.FM
  • BLIP.FM
  • GROOVESHARK
  • DEEZER   and
  • SPOTIFY  :-

please feel free to suggest Christian  tracks in the form above.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WE have been busy putting together webtools, bookmark sites, URL list systems, ready to collate information together to present a unified range of resources, including teaching materials.

WAYWIRE seems able to keep organise streams of videos of similar topics once our videos are produced.

  • KIPPT
  • BUNDLR
  •   DIIGO  ,

are among the bookmarking and annotation sites

  • PING.IT
  • BIT.LY
  • OW.LY
  • FOLKD
  • DELICIO,US    will keep track of web addresses and feeds

we also have discovered PEARLTREES … a useful tree-diagram site which will become important for keep track of linked topics, articles and more. Also, Lino – a site which helps organise

In addition, we have started to explore

  • STUMBLEUPON  ,
  • SCOOPIT,
  • HUBPAGES,
  • STORIFY,
  • REBELMOUSE,
  • PAPER.LI,

are sites which we shal lcollate information, create journals, papers, and publications from – web curation of various topics. Keep an eye open as we build !!!!.

Our journals and blogs will range from the automatic papers put together such as paper.li

to Blogger; WordPress; Tumblr; Newsvine;Disqus; Scribd  to mention some

Our video sites will divide into topic channels;

  • web-curation/marketing/webdesign/networking/social management
  • Christianity/ (generally)
  • Praise & worship
  • Art/creativity
  • Evangelism/Outreach
  • Education

….. and we have now opened education sites for free publication iof the materials we willl present [wepapers] … EdModo; and more

We have three Question and answer sites which we may become more involved in

OUR freeforums site will be the main educational spread of articles, studies, and social interaction. Please note we are NOT a formalised school and do not hand out certificates or qualifications.

Through art, incorporating bible quotes we hope to promote and encourage faith…

we have some sites ready for storing and sharing graphics (photobucket, flickr, 500px)#

and on Google+ and FlickR have connected with several Christian groups which may interest you…in time we will be contributing our skills as a fellowship in these areas.

Our slideshare site is a main one for showcasing powerpoints and also PDFs.

we also have on development some sites for graphics share and encouragement of the body of Christ as a whole…timetable for 6 months time.

If you would like to support us, please feel free top ENDORSE US on LINKED IN (follow the sidebar link);  TRUSTCLOUDKRED;          KLOUT

On linked in, feel free also to connect 🙂

also endorse us, if you like on TWTRLAND.

It goes without saying to follow and like our sites and blogs… 😉

please connect across all networks through this link;

Our websites referred to are listed

XeeMe is a fascinating network and social management tool that is perfect for the 21st century…

although all the talk of sites may overwhelm; it gives you a better picture of the total output and internet presence we are building to witness to the world, our Faith and Love for Our Lord.  It also gives an outline for all other churches and christian groups to consider using some of the similar websites and resources found through this blog.

God Bless you, and thank you.
