Christianity and the Internet

Since its inception, Christianity has seen a consistent and dramatic increase in its number of adherents.[1][2] In the 1940's the Lausanne Movement was started in order to help Christendom evangelize globally with greater effectiveness and thousands of Christian leaders from around the globe meet regularly to increase the effectiveness of Christian evangelism.[3] Campus Crusade for Christ International (CCCI) is one of the world's largest evangelism organizations within Christendom and has over 25,000 full time missionaries. In 2006, Alan Beeber of CCCI predicted that internet evangelism will result in more conversion that all other forms of evangelism for CCCI combined.[4]

Global Media Outreach is the internet evangelism arm of Campus Crusade for Christ International (CCCI).

By combining forces with Joni and Friends, Global Media Outreach benefits by having access to some 650 million people with disabilities worldwide.[6]
