Mission Frontiers Going Digital
Mission Frontiers is breaking some new ground and we want to hear from you. We are in the initial stages of getting Mission Frontiers onto tablets and e-readers and want to know which of these tools you use and let you play around with our first shot at Kindle and iPad versions.
Mission Frontiers has been around since 1979. A lot has changed in that time. Perhaps the biggest changes have been in the areas of information and communication. You probably don’t gather information and communicate like you did in 1979 (certainly not if you were born after 1979).
Publishing has been greatly effected by these changes. Devices like the Kindle and iPad are game changers. A single file uploaded to Amazon or Apple can reach millions of users without the traditional cost associated with printing, shipping, and handling.
This represents a huge opportunity for a publication like Mission Frontiers. Profit is not our goal. Our goal is supporting a global movement to establish church planting movements among the 10,000 unreached peoples (ethnic groups) of the world. We want as many people as possible reading and benefiting from Mission Frontiers. We see these new digital publishing options as incredible assets to help us achieve that goal.
We invite you to help us get there. If you have an iPad or Kindle we encourage you to download these sample files and give them a look. They are very basic versions of Mission Frontiers, nothing like what we ultimately want to produce. We plan to take full advantage of the features these new devices allow (rich media experiences with photos and video), but for now we’d like to get the content out there as it is. Consider this an ‘alpha test’1. Don’t have one of these devices? Share this page on Facebook, Twitter, or by email with your friends who might.
