Saving Souls Via Cell Phone:Internet Evangelist Uses Cutting Edge Technology to Reach Out to Those in Need, 24-7
ST. PETERSBURG, FL, Mar. 12 /Christian Newswire/ – The world’s leading internet evangelist, Bill Keller – founder of Liveprayer.com and host of the popular Liveprayer with Bill Keller TV and radio program airing only on secular stations – is now using innovative, pioneering technology to save souls via cell phone.
Keller has contracted Red Planet Media, Inc. of Orlando, Florida – a mobile video content distribution company – to provide Liveprayer with the front line technology to reach hundreds of millions of cell phone users around the world with his message of hope and faith in Jesus Christ.

Keller helped to pioneer live streaming video and interactivity nearly ten years ago when he launched Liveprayer.com in August of 1999.
“When we launched Liveprayer, the only people doing live streaming video on the internet were the pornographers,” Keller reflects. “We countered by tapping into vanguard technology to bring people around the globe the truth of the Bible, and the hope of Christ via live streaming video.”
Keller’s new outreach via cell phone uses Red Planet’s mobile video eXchange (MVX) platform and services, an affordable, turnkey mobile video solution.
“Even though most people charge monthly subscription fees and Liveprayer could generate millions of dollars doing the same thing, I’ve made our new video daily devotional available free of charge,” Keller states. “The only cost to the user is whatever their cell phone company charges them to access the internet and for text messages.”
While some ministries are using cell phones to generate income by testing daily prayers and meditations, Keller is adamant about making this leading edge technology available to the end user for free.
“I don’t do this for money, but to save souls,” Keller explains. “Yes, there are many costs involved, but my ministry will gladly pay them to make our video daily devotional available to people who are hurting, and looking for hope and answers in their lives.”
In addition to the video daily devotional, those who access Keller’s new cell phone site can also send a prayer request via their cell phone, and receive a personalized response back to their phone via text messaging.
“Mobile phones represent an amazing opportunity to touch lives in a far reaching, everyday way, ” says Keller. “This is especially true with younger people who often connect more with technology than they ever would with a bricks and mortar church. Mobile phones are virtually an untapped resource for ministering to people in a very personal way to deliver fresh, relevant messages whenever and wherever people need them the most.”
