Church attendance across the U.S. is declining, and the number of churchless Americans is on the rise. However, the number of people who engage digital platforms, such as social media, continues to increase daily. By underutilizing the digital tools at its disposal, the Church has potentially missed opportunities to build community, extend pastoral care, and ultimately, integrate unchurched and de-churched populations into the community of faith. DigiVangelism is a strategy that attempts to re-package evangelism in a way that re-engages the disengaged and propels the Gospel message on digital platforms.If people are online, churches should be online too. It is incumbent upon the Church to embrace new forms of communication and form ‘new house church’ in order to give its message greater potential for greater reach.
