Unlocking Conversations about Life, Jesus, and the Church
“I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved.”
— John 10:9ab (ESV)
Right now, millions of people are searching the Internet to find answers to the issues they face. They need a safe place to talk about their struggles or spiritual questions, but most don’t feel comfortable stepping through church doors right away. That’s why we’re helping churches open up a digital doorway to build relationships with people who don’t yet know Jesus, the door of salvation.
Many Christians find it challenging to share the Gospel. They have the heart, but need to grow in skill and confidence. The Digital Doorway provides them that opportunity.
Every month, thousands of struggling individuals from around the world send in messages through our websites, asking to journey with an online mentor. The Internet allows them to remain anonymous, so it's not uncommon for people to reveal their most painful issue in their very first message to us. This often leads straight into vulnerable and honest spiritual conversations. It can take years to achieve this level of depth in face-to-face relationships with people who do not yet follow Jesus.
This presents a unique and wonderful opportunity! Trained mentors listen compassionately and prayerfully bridge the conversation to the individual's need for Christ. Many of our mentors lead someone to Christ for the very first time through this ministry. Imagine your church engaging with people in their struggles, pointing the way to Jesus, and helping them find a church to call home!
What Mentors Are Saying
“The Digital Doorway is helping mentors to be more empathetic and patient and open to recognizing that people who are coming to us are hurting, are in need, and are hungering for some kind of personal touch without the judgmental tone.”
- Brian, pastor
“It’s easier to evangelize on the computer because you can pray about it and read Scripture that you want to share. Whereas talking to someone face-to-face, you might panic and go, “OK, what am I going to say next?”
- Carolyn, mentor in her 60s
“Mentoring has given me more of a boldness to witness in my everyday life.”
- Sarah, a mentor in her 30s
“It has grown me spiritually, having to rely on the Holy Spirit to answer mentees’ questions.”
- Karen, a mentor in her 50s
“The internet offers us the opportunity to get to people who would never grace the church door.”
- Vern, a mentor in his 70s
