JOSH: Provide Christ-centered resources for evangelism and discipleship in key languages

#2579585 - Josh McDowell Ministry

In North America, Christ-centered books are available online and in stores in every community. But that’s not the case in many places — especially countries that are closed to the gospel.

Some of our field staff must print Christian books, including Josh’s titles, in secret. And some are even hand copying them because they’re so hard to come by.

In one closed country, a young man who worked in his father’s printing business was secretly producing Christian books and other materials without his father’s knowledge. When his father found out, the son told him he had become a believer and been baptized. The father was angry and scared. He was worried this would bring shame upon the family and hurt their business.

The father kicked his son out of the family, forcing him to leave home and go into hiding in another city. His sacrifice for the kingdom has cost him everything — his livelihood and his family. But he and the people he led to Christ have remained strong and faithful.

Your gift now will provide books and other crucial ministry resources to dedicated field staff the world over!

Right now, Josh McDowell Ministry provides resources worldwide in 118 languages. And we want to continue to print and distribute books according to the requests of our partners.

For example, our partners in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Gulf region are desperate for Christian books to help them share the truth of Jesus in people’s heart language and in a way they can understand.

Please give now to provide the books and other key ministry resources needed to share Christ with truth seekers and disciple new believers in the faith.
