Internet Ministry Launched to Indonesian Youth

Team Joshua is an Alliance youth outreach with branches in four coastal cities of Papua, Indonesia. The following report was adapted from recent updates by Alliance staffers Barry and Patty Jordan, who oversee this ministry.

“The Team Joshua video outreach, which uploads devotionals and other Christian content to the Internet, has gotten off the ground,” reports Barry.

The outreach also offers counseling to youth via a hotline.

Teens at Risk

“Societal ills among teens—including drinking, drug abuse, sex, HIV/AIDS, pornography, and crime—are evident throughout Indonesia,” says Barry. Through Team Joshua, Barry and Patty are addressing these problems.

Among the strategies to reverse these trends are prayer, teaching on purity and victory, careful training of leaders, and actively involving the young people in worship services.

In hopes of widening the scope of their ministry, Barry and Patty caught a vision to use the Internet for building God’s Kingdom among youth who would never go to church. Current Team Joshua members are working with group alumni to prepare devotionals, tribal dances, songs, poetry, and more, which are uploaded to the Web and available through YouTube.

“It costs $250 a month to shoot, edit, and upload these videos,” writes Barry. The Jordans and their colleagues would appreciate prayer for God’s provision for this project. “Please pray that these videos will be viewed, that youth will access the hotline, and that we will be able to minister to a wider audience through this venue.”

“We believe that the Internet can be used to reach youth with God’s truth.”
