I am so excited and delighted to introduce to you a Global Christian Organization and the home for all Online Evangelists in the world.
I am glad, for the opportunity to interview the Organization and here are the answers to the interview questions I asked, with the aim of telling you what this organization is all about.
Q1. What is INOE?, and what is the inspiration behind INOE? Is INOE a church, a party, a company or a movement?
ANSWER: The International Network Of Online Evangelists (INOE), is a global non-profit and a voluntary christian organization.
Founded in 2016, INOE brings together online evangelists from all parts of the world, Christians with a deep passion for online evangelism and those who have received a special call into online evangelism ministry.
INOE’s leaders and members volunteer and commit their time, talents, skills and resources for the growth and advancement of the organization. It is a voluntary work for God (Colossians 3:23-24).
What inspired us to start INOE is found in the Bible in the Book of Matthew 28:16-20. Simply put, THE GREAT COMMISSION!
We realized that fulfilling the Great Commission in the 21st century and beyond will have much to do with the internet, considering the fact that there are about 3.2 billion Internet users today from over 200 countries and territories, and more and more people will be using the Internet, as they have access to it and as technology advances, the more.
INOE is not a church, neither a party nor a company. Rather, INOE is a Global Organization. It is a Global Network of Christians, who tell and show people about Jesus Christ, God, Christianity and the BIBLE, through the internet, with the aim of winning their souls.
Q2. Can anyone become an INOE Ambassador? What is the criteria of becoming an INOE Ambassador? Are there monetary rewards or otherwise in being INOE Ambassador?
ANSWER: No, anyone cannot just become an INOE ambassador. INOE carefuly chooses its ambassadors, because they automatically become its face wherever they are and go, and in whatever they do. Besides following the leading of the Holy Spirit, the criteria we use in choosing our Ambassadors include, but are not limited to the following:
- Being a Christian of good standing;
- Being an active online evangelist;
- Being a Christian/Online evangelist with good reputation;
- Being an Online Evangelist with some level of following.
No, there are no monetary rewards for being INOE Ambassadors, since we are a non-profit and a voluntary christian organization. Nevertheless, we try as much as possible to support and promote our Ambassador’s endeavors.
Q3. Today’s world is fast moving with Technology at the palm of our hands. What’s your take on Technology and the Church? Will the church morals erode? What’s your view on the rising internet negative stuff like porn? How can INOE address that?
ANSWER: Technology should be seen and used as as a viable tool for advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching people about Christianity. We must understand that Technology is in itself not evil; it is the people who use it for evil/sinful purposes that are evil.
So, if the church is pro-active enough by teaching Christians about Technology and how to use it for the Glory of God, it’s morals cannot erode.
Pornography and all other kinds of immorality being found in the internet today are sinful and evil practices that GOD frowns at and condemns (Romans 1:18-32). It’s quite unfortunate that the internet has become a tool for committing sins at will.
That’s why INOE was founded. The internet has become an inseparable part of the modern man and woman. Their worldviews, thoughts and actions are being impacted upon by what they see, read, hear and absorb from the internet.
Hence, INOE is here to help online evangelists effectively witness to Internet users about Christ so they can experience His love, forgiveness, peace, salvation and relationship, and so they can see life through His eyes.
Q4: Does INOE verify its Ambassadors? How do you do it because you meet them online? Do you conduct background checks? What steps will you take in case one of the Ambassadors puts you in a bad picture? Do you have the rules set out for the same?
ANSWER: Yes. First of all, we make sure that our Ambassadors are Christians of good reputation; real people, who are traceable; public figures in their own right; and to some extent, people with some level of good following on their social media platforms. More importantly, the Holy Spirit helps and guides us in choosing our Ambassadors!
Also, we do conduct background checks on them, because as a Christian and a Global Organization that deals (and will be dealing) with people from all over the world, we need people who will not drag our name and reputation in the mud.
God forbids; however, in the event an Ambassador puts us in a bad picture, we already know what to do.
Q5: In the wake of so many cults, who come in the Name of Jesus Christ, how do you distinguish yourself from these? Do you believe in the Holy Trinity? Do you preach the Resurrected Jesus? Are you Bible believing Christians? Do you believe in the second coming of Jesus?
ANSWER: For what we believe and do in INOE, please visit: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/inoe-global
We are clear enough to distinguish us from the cults. We believe in the Holy Trinity. We believe in and preach the resurrected Jesus Christ. We are Bible believing Christians, and we believe in the Second Coming Of Jesus Christ!
Q6: Where is INOE’s headquarters, and who are the people behind this organization?
ANSWER: INOE is so unique such that it does not just have a single headquarter. For instance, we have:
- INOE Africa.
- INOE North America.
- INOE Europe.
- INOE South America.
- INOE Asia.
- INOE Australia/Oceania.
So, we have SIX continental headquarters, and each continental branch of INOE is led by an INOE Vice President, who comes from the continent.
The Vice president’s country becomes INOE’s continental headquarters throughout his/her tenure. Also, INOE president’s country becomes INOE international headquarters throughout his/her tenure.
Therefore, we have INOE international headquarters and INOE continental headquarters.
In addition, INOE has National Branches in the countries our members come from. For instance, we have INOE USA, INOE Kenya, INOE Pakistan, INOE Nigeria, INOE South Africa and INOE India, etc.
INOE was co-founded by a set of Nigerian twin preachers, singers, and online evangelists, JOHN and PETER ADELAKUN
John Adelakun is currently the INOE President, while his twin brother, Peter Adelakun, is the current Vice President, INOE-Africa.
Also, Edwina Cowgill, an American, is INOE’s Chief Content Editor. More leaders to come soon.
Not that alone, SHEM MUTULU, is the FIRST INOE Ambassador, from Kenya.
INOE presently has members, who are INOE Media Officers and an INOE Intercessor!
Smile and Shine!
