20 million extra people a year hearing biblical creationism

The Apostle Paul wrote: "Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win." (I Corinthians 9:24).

Christians are commanded to have a sense of urgency when it comes to evangelism.

So is there a proven way that a creationist ministry could increase their outreach by over 20,000,000 people a year?

If so, how could it be done?

How big of an extra outreach would that be for creationism?

Is this a realistic estimate? Is it a conservative estimate?

Our Question Evolution! Campaign group has communicated with several people in the internet evangelism field. There are people in this field who are very resourceful, determined, talented and creative. They have generously given us some great ideas and tips.

It is no wonder that an internet evangelism organization reported that that they reached 145,000,000 million people with a Christian message in a one year time period. Also, nearly 20 million of those people indicated they prayed to become Christians. And that is merely one internet evangelism organization. Namely, Global Media Outreach. And the wonderful thing is that there are numerous ministries focusing on internet evangelism.

How big of an increase would 20 million extra people a year reached be for creation evangelism?

According to the web traffic tracking company Quantcast, the three leading biblical creationist ministries received about 448,000 unique visitors a month to their websites They also have speakers which speak at churches and other events plus other venues as well such as radio, etc. Plus, some of them have creationist museums as well.

There are also over 180 additional smaller creationist ministries in North America alone. We have started to contact some of them and we are very encouraged so far.

Let's just take a look at the web traffic for the 3 leading creationist websites and do some rounding to make the math easier. Let's round up the 448,000 unique visitors a month for the websites of the leading 3 creationist ministries to 500,000 unique visitors a month so that is 6 million unique visitors a year.

Above, we indicated that one internet evangelism organization reached 145,000,000 people in one year. So a creation website reaching 20 million extra people through internet evangelism would be about 13.7% of their results which should be doable. In short, it is an ambitious yet achievable goal.

Now if the leading 3 creationist websites are currently received about 6 million visitors a month and received 20 million extra visitors a year that would be at least a 400% plus increase in the amount of web traffic to the leading 3 creationist websites if it is combined with other efforts such as forming alliances and integrating online and offline efforts. For example, many times offline events wind up creating significant online traffic jumps due to word of mouth and publicity.
