Each morning when I get up and pour myself a cup of coffee to start the day, I have an opportunity to impact people from around the world from the comfort of my living room. Digital missions has no borders, and enables both staff and volunteers to go to countries that are extremely difficult to visit physically.  

The Mentor Ministry (TMM, is a software platform that allows people who want to be mentors to connect with online mentees to engage with them in one-on-one conversations that point them towards Jesus. It provides training to equip and coach mentors in how to start a conversation with an online mentee, share their faith, and disciple believers to greater maturity. TMM helps mentors think through various stages of their mentees spiritual journey and provide tips and resources along the way to help the mentee take steps closer to Jesus.

The software gives mentors the opportunity to connect with mentees through various websites, video, and social media content. This empowers churches and missional partners to leverage their online presence and turn it into life changing conversations. Along the way, not only do mentors see lives changed, but God works changing and growing them, too.
