Social Media Mission: A New Frontier

When online, how do we keep the integrity of a walk worthy of the calling? (Ephesians 4) I have been wrestling around this very thought for the past 14 months. After having been called to service as Electronic Media Coordinator with World Mission Prayer League (WMPL), my online engagement increasingly stemmed from a professional and ministerial […]
