Christian Vision’s 2023 Digital Day: Future Now
Bridging Mission and Technology for Global Evangelism
At the intersection of mission and technology, Christian Vision (CV) stands as a global ministry committed to introducing the world to Jesus.
Since its inception in 1988, CV has been at the forefront of leveraging advanced technology, global talent, and strategic partnerships to amplify its missional impact.
In a remarkable stride towards this commitment, CV proudly presents the 2023 edition of Digital Day: Future Now, its annual innovation conference that explores the role of technology in the mission field.
The mission and the journey
CV’s overarching mission is clear – to introduce a million people to Jesus each day, especially in predominantly unreached areas. The approach involves a synergistic blend of optimised social media advertising, effective gospel content creation, and a mix of on-the-ground and digital pioneering activities.
This strategy reflects a deep understanding of the contemporary world’s digital landscape and the importance of technology in reaching people with the gospel.
Digital Day: Exploring the future of technology and evangelism
At the epicentre of this commitment is Digital Day: Future Now, a one-day conference set to be held at King’s House, London, and livestreamed in multiple languages. This event, scheduled for Thursday 9 November, will explore how AI will shape and amplify the spread of the gospel through missions and ministries.
With sessions delving into Ethical AI, Harnessing Gen-AI, Future-Readiness and more, Digital Day aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the evolving landscape where technology meets mission.
CV Managing Director, Heinz Oldewage, said the event is more than just a conference, but a testament to the continuous commitment of CV to adapt, evolve, and employ cutting-edge technology to share the message of Jesus with the world.
“As technology advances, so does the way we work,” he said. “Digital Day showcases how mission and technology converges for a more connected future and an even bigger global evangelical impact.”
