aSafePlaceOnline launched January 2020, just before COVID-19 impacted the world.
Little did we know how God would use it bring help and hope to millions of people worldwide!
See the amazing results below!
ASafePlaceOnline exists to engage young people at their point of spiritual and/or emotional need.
Through engaging media and ad placement across numerous social networking platforms - aSafePlaceOnline offers a free 24/7 live chat and text service manned by caring volunteers. It’s our goal to offer genuine hope by sharing the love of Jesus.
In order to reach young people where they are, on social media, we needed to interrupt their world and introduce a new world to them, God's world! We accomplish this through placing paid ads like the one here.
The ads hit "pain points" many face. Our hope is that the ads will cause them to consider their condition, and compel them to visit aSafePlaceOnline to engage real time text and chat Gospel based advice. We partnered with our friends at Need Him who have 600+ trained volunteers, available 24/7/365.
Before they can chat, they first read information about who God is, what He thinks about them, and His plan for their salvation. We then give them an opportunity to accept Jesus right then and there. The results have been incredible! (See Below)
As with anything new, it took time to learn how to most effectively advertise on social media platforms. The first few months of 2020 started slow, but with knowledge gained and persistence, we started to see results! In 2020, our ads reached 21 Million people, resulting in 12,281 salvations! An amazing number, but we knew we were just getting started, as several shared with us that more were on the way!
In 2021, we asked our donors to help us reach even more people, and they stepped up! Our ads reached over 427 Million people, and resulting in 100,143 salvations! We invested $155,263 into advertising, with an average cost of just $1.55 per salvation!
We started 2022 off strong, investing $600 per day, and so far, as of April 27, 2022 we have reached almost 256 Million people, along with 70,000 salvations. This puts us on pace to near 200,000 salvations for 2022! Our goal is 222,000 salvations, so we need to increase our ad spend accordingly.
With so many coming to know Jesus through aSafePlaceOnline, we knew how important it was to continue discipling and nurturing these new believers! Here is how we accomplish this:
1- 30 Day New Believers Guide: We send an email every day for 30 days to those who sign up after conversion. So far, we have over 4000 brand new believers receiving these daily doses of God's Word and encouragement. We hear back from many who are so thankful!
2- A Facebook Group: In 2021, we created a private, members only Facebook group, encouraging people to share their struggles. We post help and hope, plus teaching videos and articles to help them accept Jesus as their Lord, and disciple and encourage those who are new believers. The group is nearing 12,000 members and we have seen many come to know Jesus!
3- A Prayer Wall: We created a way for people to post their prayer requests on our website, and for those who pray for them to post their response. We have seen thousands of prayer requests and many answers prayers! See the Prayer Wall here.
4- Bible App: We provide a link for them to read the bible, right on their phones!
5- Find a Church: We provide a link to find a church in their area made possible by our friends from Godlife.com
All of this has been made possible by our faithful and wonderful donors! The fields are ripe for harvest! Prayerfully consider donating to help us reach even more people. There are almost 3 BILLION accounts on Facebook. We have a long way to go to reach them all! We're just getting started!
