CVOutreach is an awesome partner and resource. Because our church is a portable church having a 24/7 presence on-line allows us to fulfill our purpose to be salt and light in the community. Through CVOutreaches high quality and well throughout videos we are given opportunities to meet people in our community who are experiencing stress, hopelessness and struggles and we offer friendship, prayer and hope. Our team considers it an honor to care for people when they're anxious and sometimes our role is just to encourage them so they can reconnect to existing support systems. Everyone we've interacted with at CVOutreach has had a servant's heart and that makes it easy to partner with them. We don't have to know all the technical aspects of how everything works. We just know that CVOutreach works in connecting us with people we can serve and that's why we are in ministry and partnership with CVOutreach.

I think CV Outreach is a good way to reach out to people who are going through difficulties. It's an opportunity to provide kind words to them at a time when they are looking for help. It's a sowing and watering ministry, just like other evangelistic efforts usually are. But it's also a ministry of helps.
People you are responding to might not ever show up at your church. On the other hand, they might be more open to the gospel at some time in their life because of what you said to them. One plants seeds and one waters, but God gives the increase.
It's a good ministry for Christians who like to write and be creative. You have to try to figure out the best way to respond the person based on the very limited information they provide in their inquiries. You pray about it and then go from there. Over time you develop an inventory of previous answers that you use as a starting point. But you can keep making little improvements to them over time.

I think CV Outreach is the most amazing ministry on the market. They take cutting-edge technology and repurpose it for great Kingdom outcomes. They are constantly innovating and pushing forward -- all the while working with and empowering the local church to work the great commission from the cyber realm into real life.
