FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Plano, TX - January 23, 2014
Global Media Outreach (GMO) exceeded its goal for 2013 by making more than 300 million Gospel presentations, including making more than 2 million in one day.
“I understand Jesus is the Lord, and my heart is hungry for Him,” wrote Mugabe from Nigeria. Mugabe saw just one of the over 300 million GMO Gospel presentations in 2013.
“Across the world, so many people are searching or open to the message that God loves them. Billions of people are in need of a Savior. By God's grace, many people are finding hope and salvation in Jesus,” said Nick Runyon, chief operating officer at Global Media Outreach.
In addition to 300 million Gospel presentations, 34 million people indicated a decision to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior through GMO sites. “The significance of these numbers are staggering. We are seeing God use technology, particularly mobile phones, as an incredibly effective way to reach the world,” said Walt Wilson, founder and chairman of Global Media Outreach.
A total of 326,353,266 Gospel presentations were made through GMO sites in 2013. From those presentations, 34,833,442 people indicated a decision to follow Jesus Christ—just like Mugabe.
The ministry is equipped with online missionaries who are celebrating at the news of this milestone. These dedicated volunteers allow GMO to not only present the Gospel, but to follow up and disciple any visitor who needs help in their walk with God. More than 13 million visits were made to GMO’s discipleship sites in 2013.
The impact of GMO’s work led ROI Ministry, Inc. to name Global Media Outreach as one of the top 10 most impactful Christian organizations—for the second year in a row.
The ministry isn’t stopping its work anytime soon. Their eyes are now set on the 2014 goal: 400 million Gospel presentations.
Global Media Outreach will continue sharing the Gospel and discipling millions of new believers by equipping them with the tools to grow spiritually.
