Mission Gaming is an organization dedicated to setting a Christlike example in the world of gaming.
Online Gaming has become a spiritually dark place. Due to the combination of competition and anonymity, these games have become overrun with bullying. Add in the fact that most all of the role models in the community actively participate in harassing their team mates in the mostly colorfully vulgar ways and you could find your self feeling pessimistic. Hang with us though, we have a plan!
As of right now, League of Legends has 100 Million players, CS:GO has 400,000, Hearthstone has 30 Million, and the place where all these users gather together, Twitch.TV, just sold to Amazon for 1 Billion Dollars. These games are affecting more and more people each day and no one is actively reaching out to these communities. That's where we come in.
We have the network and expertise in online gaming to be a relevant, educational, and fun source of content that simultaneously promotes kindness, respect, and grace.
We've decided to crowd-source funds for Mission Gaming because while we have done our best to be lights in our own circles of gaming, it just isn't enough. We need to create a structure that will expand our community into a movement that will ultimately shift the entire culture of video games, and to do that we need your help!
Here is a list of what we will accomplish with the funds provided:
- Create and promote a brand focused on Christian values
- Draft and develop a team of pro-level players to represent our values in the professional leagues
- Provide churches with the tools and knowledge to connect with youth involved in gaming
- Create a discipleship structure through a mentor program
- Combat Cyber Bullying with a verbal abuse hotline where people can contact us if they are feeling seriously attacked or hurt from hostile interactions that are all too common in this culture
- Promote a healthy lifestyle
- Become relevant content creators in all popular online games
- And most importantly, prove that it's possible to combine the Christian faith and online games in a constructive and life-giving way.
We have the dream team assembled to meet all of the above listed and SO much more! Please go to www.missiongaming.org/meettheteam to learn about our team!
As salt of the earth, we are to be spread evenly. Right now, there is no salt in online gaming except for people's attitudes.
