De Betteld Retreat Center, Zelhelm, Holland, April 17-18, 2015
“Mobile is the first personal mass medium.”
Tomi Ahonen shared this at the 2015 Mobile Ministry Consultation. Forbes ranked Tomi as #1 in their list of global “mobile influencers.” Mobile device technology is changing lives, families, cultures, and nations around the world at a rate that no other technology has in human history. The mobile device presents a unique, two-way communication channel that represents the most important technology available for kingdom advancement.
95 mission strategists* representing 56 organizations from 29 countries participated in the Mobile Ministry Consultation sponsored by the Mobile Ministry Forum (MMF). This was the fifth MMF consultation and the first one held outside the United States. Presentations and discussions addressed a wide variety of issues critical to the use of mobile devices in ministry (see topics below). The consultation was hosted in conjunction with the Eurasia Media and Distribution Consultation (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Mobile Ministry Forum
The Mobile Ministry Forum (MMF) is a coalition of ministries working towards the goal of giving every unreached person a chance to encounter Christ and His kingdom in a compelling, contextualized fashion through their personal mobile device by 2020.
