God of the Unseen

August 26, 2011

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He…is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything…He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—Everything was created through him and for him. He holds all creation together.” (1 Colossians 1:15-17)

Our founder, Walt Wilson, chose Silicon Valley, CA as the headquarters of Global Media Outreach. Our vision—to reach the entire world with the gospel within the next few years—seems like a lofty dream at best, but, in this city, imagination becomes manifestation. This valley, home of the silicon chip, has long been the heart from which our lifeblood flows. This city beats to the rhythm of innovation, opportunity, and creativity.  There are many reasons why Silicon Valley is what it is, but here are a few that explain why we choose to position ourselves here, at the center of technology:

  1. The change is here. Industry in the valley is in constant state of destruction and rebirth. Currently, the world is being reconstructed around this thing called the Internet. For example, the valley is home to Amazon.com, which has revolutionized the book industry, and now books stores are shutting down, every day, all over the country. The physical book will soon be, a memory found in history “books,” read on your device of choice. Additionally, iTunes has revolutionized the music industry, and the record stores have been forgotten.  Can we, as the body of Christ, use this opportunity as a means of fulfilling the great commission?
  2. The opportunity is here. Technology has done more to change the world in the past 10 years than anything in the past century.  Why is technology so revolutionary? God created it. It began in Genesis when God said let there be light, the secret behind the silicon chip. He created the bit, here, at the beginning of everything. The silicon chip is made from light, sand, and oxygen, the most abundant elements in the earth apart from water. Is this an accident? No. This is God’s design. God is the creator of all things visible and invisible. The source of the technology that will equip us to reach the whole world is the first thing God created.
  3. The vision is here.  Huge numbers of patents are listed here in the Silicon valley. In order to achieve the vision, GMO needs to move along with the technology at the pace at which it is created. In the past centuries, the church has been consistently behind the curve in technology. We want to change that.
  4. The creativity is here. Silicon valley is the Mecca for many who dream of bigger and better. As a result, the collaborative, un-tamed culture is brimming with crazy ideas that change the world. So why do the innovative minds flock here? Because this city lives and breathes for the next big idea. Opportunities are endless, and, if your idea has promise, someone just might help you make it happen.

In the middle of all this is the opportunity to share the gospel. GMO is here on the front lines of innovation, armed with God-given tech tools, fighting to reach every individual with Jesus Christ.

  1. If every person would make it a pact that they would share God’s word in some fashion in every email they send then people would have a better chance of having “multiple opportunities to hear the Gospel”

    James 1:22

    New International Version (NIV)
    22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

    Just do it… it will make an Eternal difference

    Here is my epilog n every email
    Pr.16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do; and you plans will succeed (NLT)
