Charity information: The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
The United Kingdom is in dire need of a spiritual resurgence. People are lonely, stressed, scared, abusing drugs and alcohol in search of wholeness, as Christians we know that the only way to a fulfilled life is through Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
Through partnership with local Churches, MY HOPE, a DVD outreach resource is helping local congregations to go out, with confidence, and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel.
To provide outreach resources to help local congregations evangelise.
Activities» Through a team of MY HOPE regional volunteers we aim to engage 24,000 churches in 2016 by providing DVD's and materials for them to use.
What success will look like
Success will be engaging with 24,000 churches across the UK by providing them with an evangelical tool in order to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
13,000 Churches have taken part in incorporating the My Hope DVD into their Church outreach programmes. On average 33 people watch each DVD that is disbursed and from this initial viewing 3 people dedicate or make a re-commitment to Christ. In one year 39,000 people have come to know His love, grace and mercy, which as an eternal impact.
We anticipate that a further 12,000 churches will engage with the MY HOPE project in 2016 following on from the success of 2015. There is a risk that less churches engage, however we have linked up with large denominations in order to reduce the lack of engagement with individual churches.
Churches, organisations and individuals who have received a MY HOPE DVD receive an email update every month detailing the success and achievements the project has made. Update reports are also posted in denominational press.
