Baseline: Outreach Like We’ve Never Done it Before
Outreach Like We’ve Never Done it Before
How do we begin to share the light?
Christians in America are spread among more than 40,000 denominations. How many of them have never met an Orthodox Christian or even heard of the Orthodox Church?
The new BASELINE video series will actively reach out to people who are not Orthodox Christians, who are not inquirers, and who indeed may have never encountered our faith.
- BASELINE will put Orthodox Christianity in the mix of modern media in an adult, contemporary and engaging presentation.
- BASELINE will take the viewer to the foundations of the faith, visiting archeological sites and uncovering the accounts of the original witnesses.
- BASELINE will be visually compelling, relying on strong imagery to tell the stories and defend the faith.
- BASELINE will be a series of videos, approximately 20-25 minutes in length, distributed through all social media outlets and hosted on YouTube.
Reaching the unreached - kindling the light of the faith where it has not been before - is a broad mission. The place to start is at the origin of the Church: its history.
BASELINE is a critical project for all Christians, an opportunity to accurately portray the worldwide truth and history of the Orthodox Church.
