  • Need

    Need

    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. In the United Kingdom 49 million people use the internet on their smartphones, tablets and desktop computers everyday therefore it cannot be ignored from becoming a key evangelistic tool, going forward.

    Solution

    The main aim of this ministry is to reach people, wherever they are, as Jesus did by promoting the Gospel through Google display advertisements and search engine keywords; and to provide follow up support by trained volunteer Email Responders and Discipleship Coaches to make Disciples of Christ, not just believers

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To reach people, wherever they are, as Jesus did by promoting the Gospel.

    Activities

    » Promote the Gospel through Google display advertisements and search engine keywords

    By the number of people reached and the number of people who make a decision for Christ.


    Aim 2

    To provide follow up support by trained volunteer Email Responders and Discipleship Coaches

    Activities

    » Recruit and train volunteer email responders and Discipleship Coaches

    By the number of volunteer email responders and Discipleship coaches recruited and trained.


  • Impact

    Impact

    This project will provide individuals with an eternal solution to their lives with Christ, which they did not have before.

    Success will be an increase in the numbers of people reached through Search for Jesus, the number of people making a decision for Christ and by those who volunteer to become Email Responders and Discipleship Coaches.

    Risk

    There is a risk that the project will struggle to recruit email responders and Discipleship Coaches, however based on last years results we feel positive that this will not be the case as more and more churches and Christians get to know about the project across the UK.

    Reporting

    Donors will receive an email report on the numbers of people who are reached and decide for Christ in the UK. We will also report on personal testimonies of those reached and those who have volunteered in the project.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) firmly believes in using every means possible to spread the Gospel. For more than 60 years, the organisation has used print media, radio, television and live events to reach people with the Good News. Through Search for Jesus, we’re preaching the same message—that there’s hope to be found in Jesus Christ—but through a different medium.
