Faith for Family: An Evangelism Initiative
“Faith for Family” came as an answer to prayer. The goal was to share the love of Jesus Christ and the Gospel with families across Pennsylvania.
On September 12, 2015, “Faith for Family” was launched in Philadelphia and Reading. Over 1,300 believers, consisting of: teachers, pastors and Christian students converged on these two cities and shared more than one million pieces of literature about Jesus with people. As a result, 120 small groups were started and more than 100 people gave their lives to Jesus through baptism.
The following year, on October 1, 2016, over 1,300 christian believers from across Pennsylvania were deployed, but this time to Western Pennsylvania. Thousands of Bible Study Enrollment Cards were mailed out into the community to get Bible studies started. Bible Workers were sent in advance to assist churches and start working in the community. Spiritual revival has taken place in many of the churches.
Then on October 14, 2017, in Central Pennsylvania, over 1800 church members/missionaries from across Pennsylvania and several other states participated in the “Faith for Family” mission project. In 2018, more than 2,000 church members/missionaries representing 81 churches partnered with 19 churches in Northeastern Pennsylvania, going door-to-door, praying with people, offering free Bible studies, and handing out literature. Bible instructors are following up with the 274 Bible study requests that came as a result of the day.
In 2018, more than 2,000 members participated in our D-day event in northeastern Pennsylvania. This year, 2300+ members from 54 churches going out in 31 communities in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Christ’s last words to His disciples were: “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.” Go to the farthest bounds of the habitable globe, and know that wherever you go My presence will attend you…To us also the commission is given. We are bidden to go forth as Christ’s messengers, to teach, instruct, and persuade men and women, to urge upon their attention the word of life. And to us also the assurance of Christ’s abiding presence is given. Whatever the difficulties with which we may have to contend, whatever the trials we may have to endure, the gracious promise is always ours, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”—Manuscript 24, 1903.
The mission of our Faith for Family initiative is to empower local church members to share Christ and the gospel with families in communities across Pennsylvania. This is a journey of faith! Won’t you join us?
