Hello, and Merry Christmas from everyone at Tent Making Christianity! I just wanted to take a few minutes and thank each and every one of you that has read our blogs, listened to our podcasts and commented on our Facebook page over the last two months. I could never have anticipated the warm welcome this ministry has received!
Just to give you an idea of what God has done with Tent Making Christianity, here are some numbers from our first couple of months:
Over 7750 unique site views
Over 5500 visitors to the site
84 different countries reached
227 Podcast downloads
1500 reaches per month on our Facebook Page
In addition, we were happy to welcome the newest member of the Tent Making Christianity team, David Johansen. David brings years of apologetic training to the team, as well as public speaking and debate experience. We are looking forward to his contributions as we move forward into 2019!
We are blessed and encouraged by your support!
So What’s In Store For 2019?
David and I will be hard at work to continue producing quality articles and resources. Our continuing goal is to help you all better understand and defend your Christian convictions. We intend to focus more on the problem of youth leaving the Church. We will also be developing strategies and solutions to deal with the problem.
David and I will continue to produce the podcast as a team. We are looking forward to covering a wide variety of topics in the coming months. We are going to attempt to line up some interviews with other Tent Making Christians. Our hope is that they can share their experiences with you as to encourage you where you are.
At some point in the year we also would like to begin producing some short video responses to our quick challenge questions. These have shown to be very popular. Going forward, we would like to expand the reach of this material as much as possible.
We also look forward to developing our own personal knowledge. We have already made plans to attend some training here locally in March. This on top of a heavy reading schedule should keep us on our toes throughout the coming year.
Many Happy Returns!
As you can see, we have much to be thankful for this Christmas season! We also have much to look forward to in 2019! Thank you all for your continued support. From everyone here at Tent Making Christianity, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
O God our loving Father, help us rightly to remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men. May Christmas morning make us happy to be Thy children and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake, amen.
