A Universal Gospel Presentation for all Mobile Devices

Free and available for editing and adaptation for Evangelical purposes

In my desire to consistently share the gospel with the people around me, I have tested and tried a number of applications for smartphones. The principle is simple: no matter where I go, I always have my phone on me. While I am impressed with the availability of applications that allow me to take the Bible with me, I cannot find an application or video that successfully presents the gospel in an effective manner. Therefore, I endeavored to create such an application myself. In my search, I realized something incredibly important: the most accessible way to create the presentation was to package it in a Power Point presentation or PDF slide set. Those two documents are universally applicable to any smartphone or mobile device today: Windows Phone, Android device, tablet, ipad, iphone, etc. Better yet, updating the language or contents in these slide shows is simple too, so that they can be adapted to each person’s specific style and desire.

Below is a downloadable copy of the basic presentation, a copy of a longer presentation directed at Muslims, and a guide that describes the basic concepts each slide is designed to represent. Feel free to edit this to work for your personal use. I don’t desire credit and I don’t have a desire to force anyone into my mode of sharing the gospel, I only desire to equip other people beyond myself.

Remember this helpful aspect of electronic presentations too: They are as easy to share with others as sending them as an email attachment. This is often a very comfortable way for me to both give the person follow up material, and get their contact information.

For someone who accepts the gospel, I will leave them with a Bible or a New Testament, and we set a plan going forward for church attendance and follow up. I always pass along this presentation by email, so they can review it and be reminded of the concepts, and then I pray blessing for them as they start their new walk.

For anyone downloading these tools, I only ask for one thing: feedback. Please tell me what you like, what you don’t like, and what you would change.

Also note, the reason I have pdf files in addition to Power Point, is that Power Point is best, but I have found that it does not always work perfectly on some devices, particularly the HP Tablet. Often the background graphics don’t work perfectly.

Changing World Demographics: Will the World be Muslim?

This interesting video illistrates  the distrubing trend in the demographics of the developed world. Is our way of life at an end? Should we be promoting family growth in churches? I am not sure how to react to this...
