Projects Worked On
I have worked at the Help Desk of the student computer lab of a large conservative seminary in Dallas Texas USA. God has put into my heart a great compassion for the next generation of Christian leaders.

I know dozens of seminary students and graduates. Even though I am a considered a digital immigrant at 55 years old I resonate best with those in their 20s. They immediately appreciate the need to harness the online opportunities.

I have been working for many years to find ways for seminary students and graduates to learn how to minister online. I have dozens of blogs and many websites. They are linked from a hub with my initials JSO
Roles / Skill Sets
I am in the process of putting together the visual aids for face-to-face fund raising presentations. That is my first milestone. The next milestone is to get into the habit of meeting with two prospective donors per week and present to two groups per month.

Milestone three is to raise the 40 thousand dollars needed for the seed capital. Ten thousand each goes to Consultants & Coaches, Web Development, Hardware & Software and Initial Payroll.

Milestone four is the building of version 1.0 of the Web Platform. From that base will flow Five Services 1) Networking Hub, 2) Information Clearinghouse (wikis), 3) Educational Nucleus, 4) Think Tank and 5) Research & Development Lab. And this is supported by Five Income Streams 1) Donations, 2) Retail Sales, 3) Affiliate Commissions, 4) Memberships and 5) Advertisements.

There are more milestones.

Resources for mothers during the holiday season - please forward

Based on my observations it seems that the role and responsibilities of a mother are very many. It seems that it is tough enough to be a mother during most of the year. But then during the holidays there are yet more tasks piled on for juggling and completing with a smile.


I genuinely care deeply about all mothers. That includes mothers of infants, mothers of adult children and grandmothers.


It is not…

Hi John this is Biju Mathew from India. I am into TV Production and Media Training. Looking for partners to involve in raising an ARMY of Media Missionaries in India & Other countries. Since it is the end times I surely believe Media has a big role to play; moreover as Media Missionaries we are having a very big task ahead of us. If we can join together to impart the knowledge in raising Media Missionaries around the globe the evangelism will be more effective. Let us prayerfully work for it
