Mindanao Adventist Broadcasters’ Radio Production Workshop
Communication isn’t something accidental or supplemental for human beings because God designed us to be communicators to others. God Himself is the original Communicator.
Today, He has commissioned us to communicate His everlasting Gospel throughout the world..
There is a serious need for us to think and cooperate in this enormous task of communicating the Gospel in a more effective and meaningful way.
What is Communication? 1 Communication is Unavoidable 2 Communication is Irreversible 3 Communication is Relational 4 Communication is Multiple and Complex Process 5 Communication is Synergism 6 Communication has Ethical Implications 7 Communication has Spiritual Implications
Synergy is the continuous inflow and outflow of energies taking place in communication which create harmony, understanding, unity and love among human beings.
Synergism Synergism means the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 1+1 = 5 Synergy in Nature 100 million Filipinos with 1 million church members? Working in synergy makes every Filipino reachable for the Lord!
Communication has Spiritual Implications In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
God is a Communicator He “expressed” himself at the time of creation. He spoke, and things happened. He sought company with Adam, Abraham, Moses, and David. He let his Son live in a social context, and He leads His people into a warm community of believers
God Make Himself Known From the Creation of the world God has been communicating (revealing) himself to humanity. Creation is one of the vehicles through which God speaks, and the Bible is the record of that communication. The Church is the living voice through which he continues to speak to the world
God Wants to be Understood God uses communication symbols that are understood by us within our specific cultural contexts. He uses language, culture, and human form. In God’s communication, the impressiveness is in the content of His message, not in the form or method of communication.
God Wants a Relationship The fall of humanity can be seen primarily as a breakdown in communication. But God yearns to be known and this yearning makes Him wrestle with Israel again and again. He yearns to be in true relationship with each one of us
God Wants a Response God intends that we share His commitment with the world at large (John 21:21). He wants us to understand that His intention is to have such deep relationship with us.
The Incarnation is His Primary Need. The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw His glory, the glory which He received as the Father’s only Son (John 1:14).
God Commissions Us to Communicate His Message throughout the world.
Urgency in communicating God’s message Time is Short—The message I am bidden to bear to our people at this time is, Work the cities without delay, for time is short. The Lord has kept this work before us for…years or more. A little has been done in few places, but more might be done.—Letter 168, 1909. – (Evangelism 33.3)
Time to wake up! I appeal to our brethren who have heard the message for many years. It is time to wake up the watchmen….May the Lord give wisdom to the brethren that they may know how to carry forward the work in harmony with the will of the Lord.—Manuscript 13, 1910. (Evangelism 34.4)
Millions to hear the message! The cities must be worked. The millions living in these congested centers are to hear the third angel’s message. This work should have been developed rapidly during the past few years.—Review and Herald, July 5, 1906. (Evangelism 35.1)
Challenge Question What Communication Methods, Channel, Media, and Forms are effective for Witnessing? “Go throughout the whole world and communicate the Gospel…” MARK 16:15
