Four Different Professions

Ron MeacockI am fortunate that God has blessed me over the years with the opportunity to enjoy four quite different professions. My first is as a civil and structural design engineer, my second as a Church Army Evangelist in England, my third as an ordained Anglican Clergyman in Huron and Toronto Dioceses, Canada, my fourth for the last twenty years as an internet evangelist with Tellout Ministries.

Relaying Information

I am now a digital evangelist and webmaster in Norwood, Ontario, Canada. The term "digital evangelist" is a new one in our internet terminology. "A digital 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 to convert the recipient." An element of this exists in digital evangelism. Some would argue it's more about showcasing technology's potential to lead someone to adopt it themselves.

Digital Evangelism

"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." The late author and speaker, Ravi Zecharias (1946-2020), shared his embarrassment at being a minister. He explained that he had 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 then naturally asked, "what kind of questions?" and Ravi answered, "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 the useful little booklet "Journey into Life," presented in full with the author and publisher's permission in England. It has been a great help to me over the years, and I believe it will encourage others. The following pages include definitions of well-known terms like evangelism, evangelistic, evangelical, church, and spirituality.

Toronto Diocesan Crest

Toronto Diocesan CrestAs an engineer, I feel that I can bring precision and order to this task. My church ministry gives me the compassion, honesty, and ethics needed for evangelism. Working on building sites and design offices helped me understand ordinary working people and their various philosophies in life. My vocation teaches me how to build up others in the Christian faith. I always encourage Christian people to devote their lives to Christ, read and follow the entire Word of God, the Bible, and share their faith with others. This website tries to provide the resources to do so. My experience as a webmaster since 2000 AD showed me the opportunity to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in brand new digital media.

Precision and Order

AlaskaI want to communicate the Good News of the Lord Jesus with working people wherever they may be. Every day, close to 400 people from a significant number of countries worldwide visit this website, more than half of them on mobile devices. Tellout is translated into about 30 languages and over 158 countries as it goes around the globe. It is viewed by interested people in every USA state, from Hawaii's warm sands to Alaska's ice and snow and every province of Canada. I serve as the Lord's servant in this endeavor to a growing number of visitors every day. Would you please pray that this ministry will continue to expand as God blesses it.
