People usually ask Bro. Eli personally in his Bible Expositions, which happen twice a week on the average worldwide via the Internet.

The MCGI Presiding Minister launched his Twitter account following his Open Web Award win last December 16, 2009 in hopes of reaching out to as many people as possible via the Internet — a move also taken by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, CEO’s like Eric Schmidt, and President Barack Obama.
“You can sing from the heart and from the mind (1 Cor. 14:15),” was one of the first tweets Bro. Eli posted via Twitteriffic, a mobile application that lets Twitter users send and receive tweets straight from their iPhones — another gift of technology that Bro. Eli takes advantage of in spreading the Good News to all.
