It's hard to overstate the degree to which the Internet is changing the world. With sites like Facebook being our go-to communication platforms now, we almost can't imagine life without the Internet.

While at times it can seem like technology creates a scary frontier, we believe that God wasn't surprised by any of these developments. At every point He made a way for His Church to embrace the opportunities to tell more people of His love, and we believe that the Internet, the furthest reaching of all these technologies, is no different.

About 2000 years ago, Jesus left His followers with the command to go and tell the world about Him. Ever since that moment, the message of the gospel has traversed the Earth in almost every way you can imagine!

Community Owner Spotlight – Social Engine

This month our staff got the chance to catch up with Dean Jones, creator of Godinterest.com. We got to sit down and discuss what it meant to run your own community and gained some great community management insight!

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 10.41.26 AMWhat is Godinterest?
Godinterest.com is a Christian social network created in June 2014. Its purpose is to promote Christian values and facilitate spiritual inspiration through the sharing of photographs and other media in the style of Pinterest. Its content includes media about Christian history, personal family-oriented stories and various content from a Christian viewpoint. According to Quantcast, Godinterest received more than seven thousand visits in its first month of activity and reached more than six thousand users monthly. Furthermore, its users tend to be young adults from the middle class. Females outnumber males, (55% to 45%).

How long have you been running it?
Just over 1 year now. We stumbled across the SocialEngine CMS in 2012 when working on a couple of social networks for clients and really liked it, however, we had already committed to other CMS’s. After building three large successful social networks between 2010 – 2014 (using phpfox, pligg and boonex with social apps), we were utterly fed up with all the bugs we encountered. We’ve been in the web development business for over 20 years, so we know a thing or two about developing websites using almost every CMS available on the market today. Back then, we already had the idea of creating a photo-sharing site, but were still developing the concept; and were not satisfied with what the other popular CMS providers were offering. We then re-visited the SocialEngine in January 2014 and were overly impressed with the new cloud product offering and decide to visualize and conceptualise Godinterest.com using SocialEngine cloud.

Godinterest: The Christian kind of Pinterest, with music and sermon promotions

When Pinterest first hit the scene, it was fascinating. Writers like this Christian reporter on Examiner found ourselves pinning away and creating boards just like the rest of the general public – as well as finding geeky and only slightly legal ways to beef up our followings by auto-following other users whom we hoped and prayed would return the favor and follow us back. As far as pins that were related to Christian stuff, however, well those tended to end up segregated to boards on Pinterest called “Christian stuff,” as if we were giving our followers fair warning that a reference or two or 20 to John 14:6 might be found therein.

‘’Share your faith’’ with Godinterest | Godinterest.org – WordPress for Religion | Create a free website or blog

Godinterest.org is a website which was developed in the UK and which has completely changed the concept of religious blogging in the online sphere in a revolutionary way. Opportunities provided by Godinterest are manifold and more than affordable to everyone who wants to share their principle of beliefs and their theological standpoint with the world. With the help of Godinterest platform it is possible to share your thoughts and beliefs in the form of a blog post or a video. You can create your own presentations or organize study groups that will help others to learn more from you, but also help you to refine the already acquired knowledge. And what is most important, it does not matter what your religion is.

The man who came to this great idea of uniting ”voices” of many on a noble misshttp://godinterest.org/ion and who is most deserving for the development of this platform is the 36 – year-old project manager residing in London, Dean Jones. Dean Jones, who is a devoted Christian that has been looking for a solution to the question posed by millions of believers around the globe for a long time, and that question is: ‘How do we get heard? How to send a message we have to others?” Dean Jones says about his project: “godinterest.org gives occasion to a whole new set of conversations about religion in public life and represents the possibility of a common conversation among a diverse set of voices.”

Indeed, if we look at the modern era and the world at this time, we shall see that one of the most important concerns of modern man, without him even being aware of it is in fact the search for meaning. The man invests continual effort to win the race for material goods, although he is aware of the fact that this is a race with no winners, all the while trying

WordPress Just Got a ‘Religious Makeover’

digital_journal

London, UK  — 04/22/2015 — Over a week ago, using the fully hosted version of the popular open-source WordPress content management system, Dean Jones a devoted Christian introduced a blog portal that focuses specifically on religion.

Today’s announcement marks Dean Jones’s first direct foray into the blogging arena with already well over 300 signups.

Godinterest   Godinterest.org   WordPress for Religion   Create a free website or blogJones, a 36-year-old Project Manager from London argues that “godinterest.org gives occasion to a whole new set of conversations about religion in public life and represents the pos-sibility of a common conversation among a diverse set of voices. ”

There is no doubt that WordPress.com is one of the most popular blogging plat-forms so when asked what’s special and about Godinterest.org? Jones stat-ed the following points: ”

– Only for Religion- Godinterest.org is targeted at those in Religion rather than general blogging. We envision blogs being used to facilitate discussion, replace paper newsletters, encourage students to blog, post videos podcasts and presen-tation and create class publications. To achieve this, we have built in a few fea-tures that you won’t see on your regular WordPress.com account (but could get via self-hosting).

– Accounts – Godinterest.org offers a range of accounts not limited to an individual. The basic version is a free account which gives you basic features comparable to WordPress.com but without some of the themes and Ad free (a nice incentive to an educator) after that there are educator accounts (at only £3 a month or £12 a year) which opens up more options like embedding html videos and the ability to set up, and monitor, blogs for students. Other perks of an educators account include custom domains, use of plugins and visitor stats. godinterest.org also offers free upgrades for students when attached to a Pro blog.

– Wikis – can be a great features for project work and collaboration. However, they can also be a useful way to provide resources for students to access in their own time and at their leisure to continue their learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Although you can set this up on a self-hosted blog it re-quires more skill than some people have.

– Privacy – students might be more self-concious about their work than your average blogger. The built in privacy features (including password protection) are a great way to help students to build up their confidence.

-Modules – We also plan to implement modules in Scripture, Worship (including Sacraments), Church History and Beliefs on Theology Challenges and provide a variety of resources to help teachers and students explore many aspects of religious knowledge. ”

The future of education is with online technology and there are fewer and better things to be innovating on than just that right now, Godinterest.org offers that opportunity for any reli-gious educator or faith blogger with specific themes and features that will make learning even more effective.

Godinterest Theology Challenges | Godinterest.org: Create a free website or blog

theology-mattersGodinterest.org is a response to the challenge and opportunity offered by the Internet for learning both in and beyond the classroom.

Godinterest Theology Challenges – Resource for Teachers

Mindful of the challenges and opportunities provided by the Internet and Information and Communication Technologies in general, the Godinterest.org, is undertaking the development of Theology Challenges in the first instance to provide online educational support for teachers of Religious Education.

Godinterest Theology Challenges will provide content and professional development. The first stage will be to offer sequenced online materials to assist and engage teachers of Ethics in exploring in a systematic way various contemporary ethical issues. In doing this Godinterest Theology Challenges will use a large range of Internet resources to guide teachers through the exploration of the specific issues. This will be the most developed part of Theology Challenges at the present moment.

We also plan to implement modules in Scripture, Worship (including Sacraments), Church History and Beliefs on Theology Challenges and provide a variety of resources to help teachers and students explore many aspects of religious knowledge. Hopefully they will also be useful in other ways in the future including the online delivery of assessable units for accreditation and online provision of materials tailored to meet the needs of specific school groups.

Establishing Learning Communities

In addition to the provision of content, it is intended that Godinterest Theology Challenges will encourage the development of online professional learning groups. Teachers will be able to use both the Godinterest Theology Challenges materials and online collaboration blog creation tools to explore and discuss the issues and questions that are raised. In this way, they will also be introduced to the possibilities for curriculum and classroom application of the facilities they are using in their own professional learning and collaboration.

Into the Future – Speaking to Students

Teachers are most interested in educational resources when they see them as supportive of their own classroom practice. At the same time, the ultimate goals of any educational initiative are the improvement of student learning and the engagement of students in the learning process to improve educational outcomes. It is hoped that as Godinterest Theology Challenges develops it will contribute to this vision not only by supporting teachers to present the RE to their students but also by providing engaging online materials for their use. It is hoped that through this process, Godinterest Theology Challenges will assist young people to use the new technologies both ‘purposefully and critically and… to adapt and learn throughout their lives’ and ‘for their integral development and the benefit of others’.
