With Internet, mobile devices, and social networking usage exploding across the unreached world, we have an ideal platform for transmitting tailor-made indigenous audio-visual media to communicate the Gospel. Through these inexpensive, dynamic distribution channels, mass media communications is no longer limited to traditional “broad-cast” strategies. We live in a new age where “narrow-cast” media can be transmitted to virtually millions of people for very little cost.
We are rapidly approaching the half a million (500,000) mark of views of our films over the Internet. We have achieved these results by utilizing several social media tools available over the Internet such as YouTube and Vimeo. However, we have decided to accelerate the growth of these results by creating our own distribution website called, “indigitube.tv”.
Indigitube.tv is a platform for viewing and downloading videos and animations that share the gospel message in hundreds of different languages. This website is the result of a partnership called the 20/20 Vision. The goal of this campaign is, “To produce and distribute an indigenous evangelistic audio-visual tool for every one of the Least Evangelized Mega Peoples by the year 2020, so that all can clearly see and understand the gospel message and embrace it as their own“.
It is our desire that the Body of Christ would rise to the challenge of using effective cross-cultural evangelism tools utilizing the latest in mobile communication technologies, coupled with linguistically and culturally appropriate presentations of the gospel message. The 20/20 Vision project is an initiative to see new indigenous media produced for the remaining unreached people groups.
If you are a Christian media practitioner with a passion for bringing the Good News to the darkest parts of the world, then please consider joining this partnership. You can start by signing up to our 20/20 Vision Community website.
