Missionary Speaks of Techie Way To Spread Gospel

Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 9, 2016) --John Kang, director of the missions group InterCP, spoke to California Baptist University students on how technology can be used to spread the Gospel to the unreached on Feb. 8.

Kang spoke as part of the Gordon and Jill Bourns College of Engineering's Information Technology and Frontier Missions seminar.

Technology has helped advance the Gospel across the globe through Bible phone apps and secure digital (SD) memory cards that store the Bible, Kang said through a translator. 

"Within a year, we have given out 11,526 Bibles using SD cards. You can easily transport them," Kang said.

InterCP is a nonprofit organization whose vision is to spread the Gospel to the 10/40 Window and beyond. 

"Jesus was ministering in Galilee, the frontier land," Kang said. "His Great Commission was to the people of the frontiers, to the people who don't have access to the Word."

Kang discussed how the Gospel can spread quickly through a committed group of believers.

"God used the small churches in the New Testament. Small groups of Christians built what Christianity is today," Kang said.  

The College of Engineering hosts these lecture series to encourage students to have a cross-cultural kingdom mindset of the world, said Dr. Mi Kyung Han, electrical engineering assistant professor at CBU.
