Four Different Professions

Virginia City NevadaI am fortunate that God has blessed me over the years with the opportunity to enjoy four quite different professions. My first was as a civil and structural design engineer, my second as a Church Army Evangelist in the Church of England and an evangelism resources author, my third as an ordained Anglican Clergyman in Huron and Toronto Dioceses, Canada and my fourth for the last twenty years with Tellout Ministries as an internet evangelist also called a digital evangelist and webmaster in Norwood, Ontario, Canada.

Digital Evangelist

The term "digital evangelist" has been given a new meaning in our internet terminology. "The digital or technology evangelist is a person who builds a critical mass of support for a given technology, and then establishes it as a technical standard in a market that is subject to network effects." The words "evangelism and evangelist" are borrowed from the context of religious evangelism due to the similarity of relaying information about a particular set of beliefs with the intention of converting the recipient. There is some element of this in business with digital evangelism although some would argue it's more of showcasing the potential of a technology to lead someone to want to adopt it for themselves. "As a digital evangelist I am a Christian who uses digital technologies, such as the personal computer, hand-held devices capable of browsing the Web, and similar devices to share the Good News about Jesus Christ."

Minister

The author and speaker Ravi Zecharias spoke about his embarrassment at being a minister. He evolved a new approach. When someone asked him what he did for a living, on a plane for example, he replied "I answer peoples questions." The enquirer naturally asked "what kind of questions?" and Ravi answers, "about the meaning of life." The questioner then replied "What is the meaning of life?" So a spiritual discussion ensued.

Journey into Life

Journey into LifeI have added To my own work the effective little booklet "Journey into Life" which is presented in full with the permission of the author and publisher in England. The pages following include definitions of well known evangelism terms such as evangelism, evangelistic, evangelical, church, and spirituality. All is presented that a spiritual conversation might ensue.
