JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) is a ministry that partners with other Kingdom ministries to make Christ-like disciples in the nations. JFHP is involved in: evangelism, discipleship, church development, leadershiptraining, pastoral education.
The decisions to follow Christ happen through face-to-face encounters with JESUS Film ministry team members who use a variety of communication tools, with the JESUS Film being the primary means to share God’s love. Through the JESUS Film, people are seeing Jesus’ face and hearing Him speak their native tongue, many for the first time in their lives. More than 250 language translations have been used in over 100 countries by 730 teams around the world dedicated to reaching the people of their own culture.
Since 1998, when the partnership between the Church of the Nazarene and Campus Crusade for Christ, a non-denominational parachurch ministry (now called CRU), resulted in the church forming JESUS Film Harvest Partners, its mission has been to share God’s love with those who don’t yet know Him to help fulfill the Great Commission.
Freedom from dark forces
Testimonies of new believers include physical healing, freedom from dark forces and witchcraft, reconciliation of relationships and new lives in Christ. In Bangladesh, entire communities have renounced their worship of multiple gods and goddesses in exchange for the true God. In Malawi, one dreamed of a white robed figure standing in fire, offering a choice for eternity. In El Salvador, the church is taking over gang controlled parks. In Brazil, those with addictions are freed from bondage to destructive substances. In Indonesia, people are seeing the JESUS film in their homes. In Cuba, new work is being opened in challenging areas.
The teams are comprised of three to five local ministry workers with a passion to reach their own people with the news that Christ came to give them new life. They send in monthly reports updating each category and sharing testimonies of God’s work. These 13 million changed lives have resulted from an intricate network of collaborative forces including team members, regional leadership, financial supporters and committed prayer partners.
