Lately, cheap Christian books have been a big focus for us. We've been working on a literacy drive with the local community, and we wanted to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. I figured that there was no better opportunity to introduce peoples to the Gospel them through Christian children's books. By buying Christian books and then giving them out to our literacy candidates, I hope I can inspire more people to consider converting to Christianity.
Cheap Christian books are great, but putting your literature up on the Internet costs almost nothing. If you have a few people in your church who are web sense, you can set up an online Christian reading room where members can go to study, pray, contemplate, and chat. Although it doesn't work for ministries in remote areas and is not the best strategy for literacy campaigns, it's great for online study groups. In our church, the Bible study group is linked to an Internet site with HTML versions of the passages we are reading. It is pretty great to see technology help so many people in their faith. To me, that is what being a modern ministry all is about.
