Eventually, someone will break down and buy the smart device, so they can video chat their relatives. Convenience, ease, and excitement are a few words to express how in an instant you can be connected to a live visual of your loved ones. In the same way, through our church, ministry, and community, we should strive to be effective. We need not lag too far behind, especially if we are trying to reach the next generation.
Currently, new conversations allow less time and more personal space which seemingly enable previous generations to feel disconnected while the younger generations feel connected more than ever. The conundrum is having effective communication in ministry. This is not only vital, but it is also critical. There is still a great harvest of souls to be gathered into the church. There is a harvest of younger generations waiting to be connected to you. They may be connected online, but long for a genuine heart-to-heart connection.
Communicating with devices can be a blessing, and new ways are being created to reach, teach, and inform. To begin utilizing the new methods consider opening a free email account. Stretch out and open a social media account for your women’s group. If you use Facebook, open up a personal account and then create a page for your local women’s group calling it a fun name such as Women of Faith CWC. State CWCs can develop accounts online and post their events, inspirational posts, and answer messages. There are ways to create free websites, blogs, share ideas, inform, and keep your women connected. See what fits for your unique group of ladies. If you need help in these areas, ask someone familiar with what you need. Recruit a younger woman who is up to speed with websites and social media, giving them a place on your team. Your National Office is available to help you as well.
Ladies, let’s become the workers that Jesus describes in Matthew, who were needed to tend to the great harvest. As women of God and daughters of our King, we can do anything we put our minds to do. Let’s be missionaries in our own communities and reap a great harvest into our women’s ministries and the arms of Jesus.
