God called the church to be different, in the world but separate from the ways of the world (Romans 12:2). SpiritedWitness.com, launched in August, aims to connect Christians to their local church community by highlighting positive news, events, ministries and servant leaders making a difference.
The idea for the Site is to build awareness and engagement around the many positive church and faith-based initiatives and community outreach events that are not covered in the mainstream media. Too often, churches only make the news when there is a scandal, an occasional big event or in a limited way through short news briefs.
Spirited Witness is a media and engagement platform for churches to build awareness and engagement for their ministries and outreach activities.
The heart of the Christian community manifests itself through the Church. Churches’ spirited witness shows through sermons, ministries, music and outreach to inform, inspire and redeem God's people. The Site will help churches share their witness with the local community and the world.
The Site is more than a calendar of events. Spirited Witness features servant spotlights, stories about health issues facing congregations and Good Works highlighting impactful ministries and faith-based organizations making a difference. Dedicated reporters provide coverage of selected events of local churches enhancing awareness and participation for their ministries.
The Site is free for churches and individual users. Registration is simple and only requires a valid email address.
Individual users that register can follow their favorite churches and will have access to job listings at local churches and faith-based organizations and can participate in monthly Bible trivia contests and giveaways.
Churches that complete a short online registration form can begin making posts about their news and upcoming events to the Site. Each church also has the option of having a profile on the Site.
Registered churches get the added benefit of social media exposure. The Site posts news, events and featured stories on its Facebook page and Twitter feed.
Spirited Witness.com has church listings so it can also serve as church discovery tool for unchurched persons or individuals looking for a new church home.
