Online education has brought about many positive interactions among teachers and students, yet one of its negative effects is the increasing rate of cyberbullying. Cyberbullying could occur anywhere and it could bring devastating effects to the victims. This article discusses the important purpose of Christian education to be a means of healing ministry for the students who experience cyberbullying. The content of Christian education should lead to the renewal of the soul through God’s grace; thus, the role of Christian educators is not limited to teaching but extended to be a peacemaker who reconciles students who are hostile to one another, an evangelist that spreads the love of Christ to the students, and an agent of healing ministry to the students. In Christian education, teachers should seek to be God’s agent of transformation that brings healing and renewal to the soul of the students, especially those who experience cyberbullying. Therefore, the healing ministry is seen as an integral part of Christian education in this paper. This paper uses the library research method and is written under this sequence: first, the calling of the Christian educators; second, Christian education and healing ministry; third, the importance of compassion, empathy, and confrontation in the healing ministry.
