FOUNDER OF CHRISTIAN AND FAITH-BASED SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM OFFERS ADVICE ON HOW SOCIAL MEDIA CAN CONNECT YOUNGER GENERATIONS WITH RELIGION

Social media is changing the way people talk about faith and share religious experiences and perspectives. It is also a great way to involve younger generations who may not be growing up with religion in their households. In fact,according to The Los Angeles Times, there have been several recent national studies that report the number of American children raised without religion has grown significantly since the 1950s, when fewer than 4% of Americans reported growing up in a nonreligious household. With this growing number, how can younger generations who may not be exposed to religion use social media to connect with their spirituality?

Donald Cyprian, Founder of Instant Christ™, the first-ever Christian and faith-based social media platform, offers 5 ways social media connects religion to younger generations:

1. PRAYER APPS

Millennials and Generation Y use mobile devices to communicate; they chat with friends, post photos or find the latest news on their favorite celebrity. Prayer apps ensure a spiritual connection in an instant. There are several prayer apps like PrayWithMe.com and Instapray.com that connect faith-based people to share in each other’s prayer needs. These apps make great tools for managing prayer in a safe, digital environment so that people can express themselves without secular distractions.

2. CAPTURE MIRACLES IN REAL TIME

With the advent of social media, there is an instant connection with the world that allows for miracles to be captured, recorded and shared in real time. This instant connectivity makes religion and spirituality come alive in a way that has never been measured before. Younger generations can witness miracles online first-hand and can connect virtually with others who witnessed the same miracles. This provides users with a sense of community and a way to share amazing experiences like no other community on social media.

3. THE BIG THREE

With social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, it makes it easy for users to express themselves spiritually in religiously diverse communities. These platforms enable users to find and build online relationships with like-minded individuals. As soon as you post a comment or upload a picture or video, you can easily reach a large number of people in a short period of time who may feel the same sense of spirituality as you. When you need help, want to pray or share what’s in your spirit, there are no three bigger platforms to reach others than Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

4. THE YOUTUBE EFFECT

YouTube makes it easy for choirs, churches pastors and young performers to showcase their faith-based talents to reach large-scale audiences. Users can search and find their favorite choirs and share in the daily prayers of ministers and pastors located anywhere in the world. There are even channels that serve as practical resources and workshops for religious education such as, religionteacher.com, and channels that provide religious perspectives on every topic that matters to young-adults, i.e. life, religion, relationships and entertainment like Ignitum Today.

5. DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

Smart phones and other digital platforms like the iPad, iPod and Kindle brings the Word of God to younger generations on their terms. For example, large mainstream religious platforms like Joel Osteen’s ministry and the 700 Club can broadcast via live streaming Podcasts, eliminating the need to tune in from mainstream media (TV/Radio), where the younger generations simply are not tuning in.

    Kiddos to you and your wife for creating such a powerful tool for ministry!!! This application was definitely heaven sent. Me working with youth, victimized women and hopeless men on a daily basis, I know how real the struggle is and how much of a need there is for Instant Christ. Not only does this app allow the body of Christ to stay connected, but it allows others who are not Christian, new Christians and lost Christians to encourage one another, teach and hold each other accountable! People, in their hearts are saying, “Enough is enough” with all the garbage on social media and are ready to feed their minds and spirits with things of God! Finally, a clean social media site with so much more to offer than what the world is feeding us! I will stand in prayer with you even after Instant Christ launches and can’t wait to get connected! May God continue to bless you and pour out His Spirit in every area of your lives and may He continue to give you witty inventions and ideas. Thank you for being obedient to your calling. Because of your obedience the Gospel will reach people from all ends of the earth and will be just as great, if not greater than the leading television network family, TBN, when it comes to winning souls! Peace and prosperity be with you, Mr. and Mrs. Cyprian.

    Your sister in Christ,

    Kirby Gibbs

    This is a great idea. I happened to see your story on huffington post (which I usually dont go to, but it was a follow on link from somewhere else). Take a look at any gathering location of people, airport, restaurant, waiting room or on the street and you may see 50% of everyone at least glance at their phone. This is a perfect way for us to be INSTANT IN PRAYER Romans 12:12. I would LOVE to be able to get a “prayer notice or text” read it and then hit the War Room in prayer for that person across the state or around the world. I also prayer people’s hearts are open to financially supporting the costs to keep this ministry going.
