Earlier this week our Internet Campus launched LifeShare, a new 7-day challenge for the church to move together online with purpose. We’re partnering with the community at to extend the love and compassion of Jesus to our friends, followers and online communities.

We’re doing this at a few different levels, ranging from simple steps like tweets and internet campus e-invites to more in-depth efforts like sharing online how God is working in your life and embedding video teaching on your blog. We’re connecting daily through a live video stream to talk about next steps and pray together. LifeShare is open to anyone, anywhere, so feel free to join us by signing up here.

As people increasingly live more of their lives online, we need to be intentional about equipping and challenging them to share Christ in those spaces as well. Have you found effective ways to help your church engage online? How?

    yikes…no comments yet by Saturday night. Honestly, this is really challenging, and I’m not sure how high of a priority it should be with a smaller church with limited resources…then again - maybe it’s a smaller church with limited resources because it’s not focusing on the places where people can be found and engaged in. I’m on the sideline for this one, but I’m ready to tell the coach to put me in the game!

    Brian, that is a good thought. Should smaller churches bother? We have found during LifeShare the power of getting together via the Internet. The cool thing is all the tools we are using are absolutely free. I am beginning to think it is the smaller churches with clear visions that could really make the most waves. Seems to be big potential return for much smaller investment.

    I think I will sign up. We are a small church that started five years ago. We are hoping to relaunch tne church in jan 2009 with afresh vision. I hope to help create some waves here or should I say ride some waves, let God do the creating.

    Sounds like an awesome plan, at my church our Internet campus averages over 1,000 viewers, they have flown in to be Baptized and everything, amazing what God can use.
