God’s Word through the New Media

Project Summary

– Development and maintenance of:
1. A system for conversion and publication of biblical texts into e-book and other relevant electronic formats.
2. The Facebook page devoted to Scripture, and various supporting websites.
3. A system for online user registration that will build a supporter base for the Bible cause in Slovenia.
– All of the above represent the key elements of a holistic communication effort, which aims for the widest and most meaningful Scripture distribution through these channels and can provide good basis for Scripture engagement and Bible advocacy.

Target Audience

– Youth and users of online social networks


– To reach effective communication of God’s word through new media (electronic formats, social networks, new mobile gadgets and online tools) in a consistent way, which can build trust with the audience.
– Facilitate all the three phases of Bible Engagement:
1. Exposure to the Bible
2. Bible use
3. Transformation in terms of thinking and behaviour.
(The 3rd mainly through the partnering ministries.)
– Within this, to communicate the mission of the Bible Society in an inspiring way, so that recipients become aware of it and be attracted into a relationship with the Bible Society in the form of volunteering or financial or prayer support.


– Scripture selections and portions available on the e-book/mobile platforms for free upon registration
– Exploration of the possibility of online sales of whole Bibles or New Testaments in electronic formats
– Regularly maintained Facebook page for the Bible in Slovenian and for the Slovenian Bible Society
– An online base of “friends” of the Bible Society that can be further used to solicit support for the Bible cause in our country
