Stories are timeless, just like art. In a project called Sandy Tales, an artist retells ancient Bible stories through sand art. The wonderful visuals can make people see the stories they may have heard many times before in a new way.

Sandy Tales can be used in families, churches, outreach projects, in the classroom or during Sunday school.

These are topical web pages on felt needs or big life questions. People who search online might ‘land’ on these pages, meant to connect with the searcher and introduce them to an element of the Gospel.
Example: The website “I want to die” tells people that they are not the only one struggling with thoughts around suicide and that there is hope.
Chatbots are automated (digital) conversation partners. We developed two ways to use this tool in reaching people with the Gospel and helping them to grow in faith. First of all, the chatbot can answer people’s questions based on Jesus’ statements and the Bible and redirect them to a website, video or course. Secondly, a chatbot can embody a Biblical character. Imagine you can chat with David and ask him how he experienced the fight with Goliath! Through these conversations, an age-old story comes to life and people discover more about the story’s background.
We challenge people to get involved and help others to become a disciple of Jesus as well. The work of Jesus.net is made possible through lots of indispensable volunteers. There is an online course available to train volunteers in using the tools that are used within the Jesus.net network.
