JFHP shares new year's update to kick off 20th anniversary

Olathe, Kansas

JESUS Film Harvest Partners is celebrating 20 years of service and partnership with the Church of the Nazarene in 2017 — transforming hearts and lives across the world.

In two decades, teams have reported nearly 15 million decisions for Christ, with more than 6.7 million of these new believers receiving initial discipleship follow-up. Teams have planted in excess of 65,000 preaching points.

More than 600 JESUS Film teams continue to serve in 47 countries, focusing on evangelism, discipleship, and church maturation.

  • On the Mesoamerica Region, because teams were intentional with discipleship materials in 2016, the number of people who were discipled was 14 percent higher than the number of people who made decisions for Christ.
  • On the Africa Region, five countries had a monthly average preaching point attendance over 40, compared to the global average attendance of 23.
  • In one South Asian country, 90 percent of the Nazarene churches have been planted by JESUS Film teams.

Angelina in Peru said she gave up her plan of abandoning her husband and children after watching the JESUS film, finding hope in Christ. She said she now has peace and quiet in her heart.

“Thank you, Church of the Nazarene, for this ministry and for showing me this beautiful message," she said. "Please keep showing others the truth and freedom found in Christ.”

JFHP leadership is excited to see how God will work through the partnership of JFHP, the Church of the Nazarene, and other ministries to lead more people to Christ and transform more lives in the next 20 years.
