Joined Through the Power of Technology
by guest blogger Scott Smith, Pastor of Wellspring Church, Webb City, MO
“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” Psalm 105:1
We live in a truly amazing time. For the first time in all of history, technology has given us the opportunity to make known what the Lord has done to all nations. Good News Productions, International (GNPI) is leading the way in leveraging resources and technology for the sake of the Gospel throughout the world. Through their regional centers, GNPI is taking the timeless message of the Gospel to every corner of the globe through cutting-edge technology.
Along with the staff at GNPI’s office in Joplin, Missouri, we were joined through the power of technology with every GNPI regional center for an hour of prayer. As we virtually made our way around the world, each regional center would intercede for the staff of another regional center based in another city, country, or even continent. The result was people from all around the globe, coming together to praise the name of the Lord and ask for his favor as they take the Gospel to people who desperately need to hear “what the Lord has done.”
As a pastor, I regularly remind our church that our mission starts on Sunday morning when we are gathered; but it must not end there. We are commanded, as followers of Christ, to take the Gospel to the nations. One of the ways our church is doing just that is through our partnership with GNPI.
