New Tool for Evangelism

A great, fairly new tool for outreach and evangelism is podcasting.  I know there are many churches and pastors that are using podcasting to get their sermons out to whoever may want to download and listen.  What an awesome tool to get the message out that God has given you to many, many more people than your congregation.  This has also come to be known as Godcasting.  Every time I hear that term used I think of when Jesus was hand picking His disciples.  He came to Simon Peter and Andrew who were fishermen and had casted their nets many times for fish.  

Matthew 4:19 (NLT) 19Jesus called out to them, “Come, be my disciples, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 

Another technological tool that can be used to “fish for people” and for discipleship as well.
