Before Jesus left, He gave His followers instructions: Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature … make disciples of all nations … (Mk 16:15; Mt 28:19) His plan was to duplicate His work through others. The pattern of Gospel ministry is to DO the work and to ENTRUST others with the work. This is multiplication. The Holy Spirit, the Promise of the Father to all believers, empowers followers of Christ to continue the work that He began to do and teach. This is the same Spirit that had empowered Jesus to do all that He did during His earthly ministry. (Ac 10:38)
The pattern of multiplication defines Osborn Ministries, beginning in 1948 and continuing today. Every evangelism crusade included Soul Winners’ Institutes, training and releasing thousands of new evangelists into Gospel ministry. Over 30,000 national preachers have been assisted by this ministry, sending them into unreached areas to establish self-supporting churches. More than 150,000 such churches have been planted in nations around the world. Gospel books, tracts, and equipment have trained and equipped followers of Christ in over 100 nations. Through the influence, example, and support of this ministry, thousands of unreached areas have received a convincing witness of Jesus Christ. This is the Bible pattern – multiplication.
Every soul winner, in every nation that we equip is YOUR REPRESENTATIVE on the front lines of evangelism and healing. Your witness of Christ is being multiplied around the world, through your partnership with this global, influential ministry. Here are a few examples:
