Our Digital Faith Projects Approach
The founding principles of our Foundation is to strategically place our resources and funds to develop and grow our Christian faith by providing access to the good news message contained in the Bible freely and honestly. Our objective is to provide users with Content, Resources, Tools, and Services to assist them in creating awareness on how to stay in touch with the developing trends and access to faith, educational and support functions.
As such, we are developing and launching web content in order to assist users to validate web content and providing direction for both Faith and Corporate entities on how to adapt to the new communication patterns evolving all around us.
We believe that we can achieve our objectives through assisting select ministry organizations in equipping their members and congregants to grow in Christ, by building and experiencing a personal connection with God through digital means and resources.
Our Digital Faith Project
Our Foundation partners with the St Mark's Congregational church who together are working towards a fully-fledged online Digital Ministry and Faith Portal.
Our Faith Portal provides online resources such as Digital, Text and Audio Bibles, Scriptural Research Libraries and current articles, Services and Testimonials.
Our website and DSP systems are already providing live and remote streaming services and content to our MOC Church and Satellite ministry partners.
The simple truth of the matter is that we need to adapt to how we provide the next generations with Spiritual direction. Falling church attendance and escalating congregational age demographics requires an urgent look at how we react to the web and social media applications developing around us, and how they can be used constructively.
Our concern is that the family units influence appears to be dwindling and much of what children could learn through it is falling away. As such we are working with our Digital Youth Ministry Partner to search for, and develop new ways communicate with our youth through web and social media platforms which will ultimately guide them to the message of God's grace and His plan for their lives.
Our MOC Digital Signage Portal (DSP) system was developed to provide streaming content to a remote network of online television screens. Its content is prepared and scheduled for broadcast by remote user’s.
The systems provide an online streaming audio visual channel which can be tailored to any specific organization's needs, in virtually any setting, and can also be accessed off any Smartphone, Tablet or Laptop.
We partner with various organizations to provide them with online access to resources such as scheduled church services, music, talks, personal content and social media updates intended for their community.
In addition, MOC and its Faith Project partners make available advertising space to acknowledge sponsors and generate additional income for projects through raising awareness among corporate sponsors and providing them with an online feedback channel which keeps them in touch with their beneficiaries.
DSP systems are typically used to provide organizations with access to Church Services, Sunday School Classes, Christian Music, Motivational Media, Health, News. Educational content etc... These are scheduled and streamed to suit the end-user's requirements who vary from Churches, Frail Care Homes, Hospitals, Prisons.
Our Digital Projects Portfolio
MOC assists various ministry organizations that have a track record of efficient project execution.
As a ministry initiative, our digital portfolio management and content development is focused in South Africa with beneficiaries and partners in Mozambique and Zambia.
Our ministry partners are active across a wide range of ministry activities including Evangelism, Community Project Services, Christian Education and Church planting to name a few and we work to provide our partners with a ministry network and online resources to start their project with.
On each project considered we work towards researching, evaluating and discerning on how we can use Gods resources to bring about the greatest impact to those we wish to assist.
