Using Twitter to Choose a Christian Ministry to Support in Charlotte

There are several “Christian” ministries I’ve been considering getting involved with here in Charlotte. Since my time is limited, I really must narrow the list down to ministries with an evangelistic focus. In order to do this, I searched the Twitter feeds of these ministries for any mention of the word “Jesus.” I wanted to know how often, and in what context, these ministries talked about Jesus and the gospel. What I found surprised me, and sadly, this exercise was a success.

There could be several reasons why a Christian ministry would not mentioned the name of Jesus, but honestly, I can’t think of a single good one. So, without any further ado, below is a list of local ministries in Charlotte that I’ve considered supporting this past year, along with their latest three (if that many) posts containing the word “Jesus”:

Habitat for Humanity Charlotte (hfhclt):


NarroWay Productions (NarroWayTheatre):


Justice Ministries (Justice_NC):


Cities4Life (cities4life):


Love Life Charlotte (lovelifeclt):


Salvation Army Charlotte (SalArmyCLT):

So, what do you think of all this? Should an organization raising funds in the name of Christ boldly proclaim the name of Jesus on their Twitter feed? Let me know in the comments below.
