In her excellent article entitled You’re Already Doing Internet Evangelism, so Do It Well, Amber Stamper interviews Tony Whitaker who was the founder of the Web Evangelism Guide and then coordinator of Internet Evangelism Day until his retirement in 2015.
Amber prefaces her interview with Tony with this incisive paragraph:
In response to Amber’s questions, Tony provides helpful information — not only about Internet Evangelism Day (which was the main subject of the interview in many ways) — but also about digital evangelism in general. Having corresponded with Tony from time to time in the past, it was no surprise to me to see that he emphasized relationship, noting that “most lasting adult conversions results from a period of 2+ years in which the most significant factor is a relationship with a Jesus-follower.”
This dovetails with our conviction that community is the foundation of all effective outreach.
