During COVID-19 lockdowns in India, the Words of Hope Dogri ministry team decided to experiment with new forms of connecting with listeners and other Christian leaders through social media.
They launched a new Facebook page at the beginning of lockdown called “Voice of the One Whom We Love.” The team then organized a marathon social streaming event with 12 straight hours of praise and worship led by different pastors from around the country.
“In the past 3 months we were able to reach more than 50,000 people through online worship and streaming,” the team leader shares. “We were also able to connect with more than 50 pastors and mission workers from different [Indian] states online.”
“Social media has been a wonderful source to connect with people,” he says. “We will be continually using this medium to glorify the name of our Lord.”
