are you trying to reach?
is a diverse, open and expressive community that is growing each
and every week. from our humble starts as a free page, we
have grown to a community reaching more people then we ever
figured would happen. as our founder [john o'keefe] always
says, "we were born out of a passion and rebellion; a passion
for God and a rebellion of the status quo." this idea,
this the central thought that helps guide who we are; it
tells us that we are
first to seek to know who God is, and second to not simply do what
everyone else is doing. so, the question that guides that
"who do you desire to reach?"
you are looking for a young, evolving, open, expressive and
accepting people, think about placing an ad with us. we
have roman catholics, protestants [of all kinds], orthodox,
neo-orthodoxy and we
even have those would say they were "heretics" - but
mostly, we have people seeking to walk a closer walk with God, and
many of them defy boxes.
have to face the reality that it
is not a matter of "when will things will be different" -
things are different right now; the paradigm has shifted and we see
the world in a very different way then our parents. for many this is frightening,
but for us it is exciting. we know we do not live in the same world
our parents lived in, but how do we minister to a changed world:
in the day," friendship was defined by who you went to
school with or who lived on your block; today we have friends we
have never met, in lands we have never been.
in the day," marriage was the norm and most people had a
"mother and father;" today more people live
together then are married, and single parents are a growing part
of our culture.
in the day," going to church was a norm; today, it is not
even on the table as an option.
in the day," over 90% of americans were christian and our
culture was "judeo-christian;" today, well think about
in the day," people stayed with a company for 20 plus years
and developed "company loyalty;" today, people change jobs every three years or so, and change careers
about every 5 years.
in the day," tv was black and white and less then 40% of the public
had a phone - today, tv is in "high def,"
computers are in about 60% of all homes and 75% of all schools and
most 12year olds have a cell phone on a family plan.
in the day," a person would get a news paper to catch the
news; today, most of our news comes via the wireless internet,
which can be found free in most metro areas.
reality is, the world has changed, and so has our culture.
we could debate if the changes are good or bad, but we would
rather figure out how to minister to the people today.
have become a online, digital, interactive, interfacing,

via the web - and we think ginkworld is just the place to reach
