Online Videos and PowerPoint Presentations have different Strengths

DP-Outreach Videos   DP-Outreach PowerPoints

Video is the most popular medium used to transmit ideas nowadays. If there is a speaker in a video, he or she must convey feeling so the viewer can receive emotional stimulation.

The online DP-Outreach videos use music and beautiful images instead of narration to evoke an enotional response. There is no speaker's voice b ecause these videos are intended to endenger an "inner dialouge" between the viewer and the Word without the filter of someone's personality.

comfort zone

Videos for evangelism can be watched in the privacy and convenience of an individual's own home.  Videos are non-threatening because the viewer is in his or her comfort zone.

Almost everyone will try watching a video, but they can be quickly turned off if the stimulation doesn't grab them constantly.  People tend to be impatient toward an impersonal video presentation.

As a first impression, videos are a great intial step but it is not enough to move someone to join a church or movement. Videos rarely move people towards a spiritual transformation.

Through DP-Outreach videos, the viewer's interaction is with truth but not love.



When attending a PowerPoint presentation of DP, guests participate in a structured event at a certain location.  The guests take these gatherings much more seriously than the videos they watch at home.

Because the guests have invested more time and have higher expectations when they attend a PowerPoint presentation, they are actually better prepared to receive abundant spiritual energy.  They have moved outside of their comfort zone, hoping to receive a greater return on their investment.

formal event

The guests feel part of something bigger: a community of shared ideals, enthusiasm, activisim, and most of all love— where they can get a sense of value and belonging.

Of course, a PowerPoint presentation requires a presenter.  However, the presenter doesn't have to be a charismatic lecturer.  In fact, such people may even compete with the presentation's actual content for the audience's support!

Anyone can be an effective presenter if they make sure:

1) the event moves forward in a timely manner and
2) that they validate the concerns from the guests throughout the event. A facilitator's recognition and validation of guests' concerns is very effective, since people want to be heard and understood, even if their views differ from those presented.

Thus, a PowerPoint presentation involves interaction with others as well as with the truth. There is both truth and love (the spirit of God) in the mix.
