Where Loneliness Can Lead

One of the sad realities of offering live chat is how lonely people are and how that leads some into poor choices. We unfortunately talk regularly with people trying to recover from one-night stands and online hookups. Some come wanting to talk…

How do you define success?

It sounds like a simple question. However, when you stop and really reflect on it, the answer is much more than a single measurement or metric. This is especially true in evangelism where we so often see people go through long seasons of questions,…

Isn’t Evangelism Outdated?

When I joined the ministry the challenge with evangelism was not getting people to agree it was important but finding those who were willing to engage in it. Recently, the conversation has more often turned to whether evangelism is appropriate. …

A Global Reach

I have an admission to make. The meeting was 2012 and the ministry was discussing a new logo and adding the word “Global” to its name. I was all for the new logo as the previous one was more about radio and not capturing what the ministry…

One Volunteer’s Story of Change

The ministry is blessed with so many humble and incredible volunteers. We went to one a while back and asked her to share some observations about the changes she has seen in the ministry. She agreed but wanted us to withhold her name so the…

One of the truly unique programs within the ministry is our Resident Leadership Program. This is a one year paid internship for seminarians with a passion for evangelism that plan to go into pastoral care or ministry. Each Resident commits to…

The Heart of the Ministry Grows

The story of Need Him Global cannot be told without a deep appreciation and significant recognition of all the volunteers that give their time to share the Gospel. From our very roots, the ministry model focused on sharing the Good News with…

Reaching New People in Different Ways 

As many of you know, the humble beginnings of Need Him are rooted in Christian radio. It was all about reaching those listeners that did not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Christian radio and online content continue to be one…

Is AI your friend?

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is the development of computer systems that perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as speech recognition, decision-making, and language translation. Recently an employee at Google was suspended…

Latest Ministry Reading Plan

A Fresh Look for ChatAboutJesus.com

The ministry started with a single website and phone number in 1996. Communication was much simpler then and we were still a decade away from the first iPhone. This started to change a dozen years ago when Need Him Global took the controversial…

Metaverse

If you use Facebook or stay up to date on where social media is heading, you have likely heard about the metaverse. Experts describe it as a network of virtual worlds focused on social interaction. Some say it is where you bring your avatar…

Rise Ministries

One of the most significant changes to the ministry over the last decade has been the number of conversations that come to us from ministry partners. We have previously shared how various evangelism ministries, media organizations and faith-based…

Meeting Wandering Christians

We are often asked how often we connect with believers. It is difficult to answer that question with specificity since so many of our guests claim a label like “Christian” or “believer“ but then admit they have no relationship with Jesus.  That…

Meeting the Lonely Online

If we think about our different friendships, we see that those relationships came about through different settings. Some through school, others by way of work and some through mutual acquaintances or attending the same church. For many people,…

In Memoriam – Brian Spann

If I told you a young man, with a huge heart for the Lord, recently passed away at 27 it would leave you feeling sad and pondering a life cut short. However, if that is all we shared then you would miss the real testimony of Brian’s life. Brian…

For over 25 years, Need Him Global has been on the front lines of culture meeting people in their struggles and offering a safe place to talk about Jesus. Offering this type of anonymous outlet encourages people to be honest and transparent.…

Honest To God Love

As a ministry, we are blessed with passionate volunteers and a culture that allow us to partner with other ministries. We strive to remain on mission by only looking for new partners and campaigns that are truly focused on sharing Jesus without…

Meeting an Audience Where They Are

It is easy to get caught up in the idea that we have the best news of all time to share and all we need to do is put it out there for people to see and hear. Others believe fear and damnation will get attention and it must be dramatic. Christians…
