FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Plano, TX - April 21, 2014
In its tenth year of sharing the Gospel, Global Media Outreach (GMO) is celebrating the milestone of presenting the Gospel more than 1 billion times to people all over the world. On April 21, a visit to one of GMO’s Gospel websites tipped the scales in favor of the ministry’s new goal: Going beyond a billion.
“I was looking for something else and this ad came up here, I made the decision,” wrote Rafael, a seeker from Mexico, who viewed a Gospel presentation online. I'm asking for your help to understand all about Jesus,” wrote Rafael.
Since 2004, the ministry has received millions of messages just like Rafael’s from people across the globe who have viewed a Gospel presentation and have requested to be discipled by the ministry’s team of nearly 9,000 Online Missionaries.
“With 91 percent of humans living within range of a cell tower, the majority of seekers come to our sites from their cell phones. We see technology moving so rapidly and so dramatically across the earth, we know God Himself is making this possible,” said Walt Wilson, founder and chairman of Global Media Outreach.
Because of technology, GMO’s Gospel presentations are far reaching--even being accessed by those who live in countries where Christians face rejection and persecution because of their faith.
“I've been threatened with death because we embraced the Christian religion. For your information we are a group of 20 young people from the Republic of Yemen,” wrote a seeker named Sam.
As a leader in Internet evangelism, GMO stays on the cutting edge of technology to disciple and minister to others--including those who can’t connect with Christians in their own community. People all over the world are hungry for the Gospel, and GMO is focused on going beyond a billion to reach all those who hunger for Christ.
