The Wales Evangelical School of Theology (WEST) has partnered with United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) to develop a website aimed at bringing the gospel to people.
Called ‘LookingforGod.com’, the site is designed to communicate the gospel to people on the internet, and help those seeking God to connect with a local gospel-hearted church.
According to a statement from WEST, the seeker can then meet with people and learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. A spokesman said, ‘Today people are looking for God on the internet and on their mobile phones. This is an opportunity we believe we cannot miss’.
WEST is involving students in the project, building a team to answer any real-life questions that come in through the website. ‘Our students get a taste of real-life apologetics. The questions are then theologically checked by one of our faculty’.
During May there were more than 5000 visitors to the site; 251 of these sought prayer and there were 41 unique questions.
