Description

'My Hope' combines the impact of video films with the power of personal relationships. Christians can share the message with friends, family, colleagues and neighbours using one of several evangelistic films featuring life-changing testimonies and powerful messages from Billy Graham.

Pray
Billy Graham once said “we must repent of our prayerlessness and make prayer our priority.” Evangelism must begin and end with prayer. Organise a group to pray for a burden and strategy for your community. Begin to pray specifically that people will be saved.

Plan
Set a date to show The Cross this autumn. Think creatively about how to show it—at a church-wide outreach, on youth retreats, in small groups, or in homes with friends.

Prepare
Encourage your church to ask God for renewed love for people who need the hope of Jesus Christ. Write down names of those you will commit to pray for daily. Lead your people to humbly submit to God and ask for the Holy Spirit to revive the church.

Watch
Show The Cross after November 7 and encourage your congregation to bring friends, neighbours, or loved ones. At the conclusion of the film, invite guests to put their faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour.

Disciple
Use your own materials or BGEA resources to help new believers grow in faith. Involve your people in personal discipleship of those who made decisions.

Pray
Praise God for answering prayer and for the salvation of those who received Christ. Continue to pray for those who have not yet been saved and for additional opportunities to share the Gospel in your community.

Rationale

Pray for God to reveal Himself to your friends, family, and neighbours and then invite them into your home to watch a My Hope film. Share a meal together and then watch the program. Afterward, share how you found hope in Christ and invite them to pray to accept Him into their lives.

Outcome

“Few Christians have had a greater impact on the last century than has Dr Billy Graham. This message of Hope, brought towards the close of his long and rich ministry, should be heard by everybody.” –Rev. John Glass General Superintendent of Elim Pentecostal Churches and Chair of the UK’s Evangelical Alliance Council.
