Future Development

So were is Jesus Encounter going? Well I’m going to answer some of those questions in this post. I’m going to describe to you some idea’s I have and want to bring to life and hope you might join me in partnership to help make those goals work.

First I want Jesus Encounter to become more than just a blog. I want it to by a a place for Christians to congregate to learn about God and to help others grow in there walk with him. I want there to be discipleship if people want it, prayer if people need it and a sense of community so others don’t have to feel they are alone for Christ.

back_to_the_future.jpgThere are many ways to go about this but first it’s going to take a website. To get a website you need to pay for online disk space to store your website on then you have to pay for your dot com name. Thankfully that stuff has gotten pretty cheap and isn’t terrible.

Things I would do is recreate Jesus Encounter into a site instead of a blog. The focus of Jesus Encounter wouldn’t be the blog. I would create a site and have prayer,discipleship,community. Everything it takes to keep your walk with God growing and everything it takes to help any christian in any part of their walk with God.

I would have to form a team to help with prayer requests if the need ever got to much for one person. I would have a place were you can write discipleship articles and you send them in and I will approve them and post them on the site with all credit going to you.

I would start up a Christian blog ring. A place for other christians that blog to find other blogs that other christians are writing. It would be a place of community for the Christian bloggers.

I would start a Jesus Encounter blog and/or site of the week contest. I will read blogs and websites and have people submit stuff they want me to read also. By the end of the week I will find the best for the week and I will write a post about the site and stuff to help promote the site for its good content. OF course these sites would revolved around Christ.

So far thats my dream for right now and my goal. If you have any other idea’s I would love to hear them and I would like to hear what Jesus Encounter is to you.

Now all this can happen with first buying webspace and a domain name. Now being a student out of high school I don’t have a source of income so I don’t have enough money to purchase this for the time being and I don’t want to clutter Jesus Encounter with adds just to make money for it. So if you feel compelled or you like what Jesus Encounter is or is going please feel free to donate.

All donations will only be used for the soul purpose of Jesus Encounter. It will be for maintaining the website and getting it going. If Jesus Encounter takes off really well then hopefully we can start taking donations to help those in need or to send money to Charities that will help those in need or help get the word out there.

I see Jesus Encounter as a ministry and for that to happen I can’t do it all on my own. So I ask you today to join me in making this work. Pray about it and do what God wants you to do.

To donate you can use the donate now button via paypal at the end of this post.

I don’t want to bug people for money and I don’t want people to think that I am that way. All I want to do is show you my dream for Jesus Encounter and provide you an opportunity to support it.

May God bless you and show you himself in a way he never has before.

Much Love ~ Jeremy Newton

  2. Jeremy,

    You are definitely on the right track. Might I make a few suggestions as someone that has had many ministry web sites over the years, had a few hacked and learned some important and valuable things.

    1) Having a main ministry web site is a good deal. Use Go Daddy for your hosting needs, and to purchase your .com – They are reasonable, safe, secure, they back everything up, and have 24 / 7 live customer service. I have since 2003 never experienced a problem with them.

    2) Having a main ministry web site is as I said a good deal. However you will need to have at least 5 blogs linked to it, plus network with other ministries. Otherwise you will have one site in a ocean filled with millions.

    If you ever perform a search on my sites. I have many sites with number 1 page placement on many of the major search engines. That didn’t happen overnight. It takes hard work and dedication. That’s why you need to network with others, link with others, and have a few extra blogs.

    3) Always remember that we are not independents. We are members of the body of Christ, which is one big family. Like God’s network on earth. Stay close to others, within the flock, and always place the needs and success of others over your own within ministry. God will honor this in a major you cant count your blessings way.

    4) Prayer, community prayer, very important. My House Shall Be Called A House Of Prayer.

    5) Disciples a must. Jesus commands it, Go and make disciples of them. While at the same time you are a disciple and need a covering, and mentorship.

    6) Love, encouragement , seeds of faith and hope extremely important. Think like Jesus, as a sower of the word, of hope, of encouragement, a bearer of the fruit of the spirit, walking in the spirit, speaking the truth in love.

    7) Placing God 1st, doing all things to His Glory, and finding and not leaving your first love (Jesus) is a important part of it all. Ministry can become demanding. Time alone with God daily in prayer, meditating on the word, and times of personal worship come with the calling. This is key.

    8) If you desire God to bless you with provision, you will need to meet one of His requirements which is to sow into good ground. That includes the word of God, love, encouragement, hope, friendship, and financial seed. the Kingdom of God is good ground, the hearts and souls of the lost is good ground. The homeless, the widows, the fatherless, is good ground.

    “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing”.

    Blessings, in Christ, the Hope of Glory
    Eugene
