Our Unique Approach at a Glance

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH AT A GLANCE


Evangelism


The need for evangelism is constant and the Jesus Alive Gospel Outreach focuses on the most rural and often unreached villages in Africa. It is our desire to reach individuals and to ensure that each decision for the Gospel is a lasting one. To achieve this, we have developed a simple, effective strategy and have seen the positive results of this in the past years.

We have trained and developed teams who are now evangelising in Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and South Africa. Each team consists of an evangelist, a Christian Discipleship Programme (CDP) coordinator and two trainees. These team members are all locals, for example, our Kenyan team members are all Kenyan nationals who evangelise the Kenyan rural villages.

Meeting, Greeting & Training


The team meets with the village pastors and leaders to explain the Jesus Alive vision, mission and the strategy. We work with as many, if not all, churches and pastors as possible in each village, making no distinction between any denomination and favouring no specific church or movement, to encourage unity in the body of Christ. Our desire is to work completely interdenominationally, which is emphasised by our teams which are made up of members from various denominations including Presbyterian, Anglican, Baptist, Pentecostal and so on.The village pastors, counselors and intercessors are trained during Week 1 for effective follow-up after each Outreach. Jesus Alive does not establish a new church in the village but desires to see the local churches grow. Pastors are therefore also trained on coping with the influx of new church members. Finally, during week 1 all the relevant legal permissions are obtained, the event grounds are prepared and the equipment is set up for the following weeks’ Outreach.

Evangelism in Schools


The primary and high school Gospel Outreaches take place from Monday to Sunday at a central location in the village. Schools are evangelised during the mornings and it is our goal to reach every school in each village we visit. In the afternoon or early evenings, the Gospel is ministered to the villagers in their own language through an easily understood message.The pastors, intercessors and counsellors who were trained during Week 1 to help our team to ensure each pupil is prayed for and receives a follow-up booklet. Their names are recorded to allocate a church or pastor to care for the new believers and to encourage them to attend the Christian Discipleship Programme during the third week.

Daily Meetings


With all the local church congregations’ participating, we hold evangelism meetings every day for a week. Each of the participating churches have a time within the daily programme to have their choirs sing a few songs. Thereafter our evangelists preach the Gospel message, with a call to repentance. All those who respond are given a follow-up booklet in their language and their details recorded for further follow up by the local church leaders.Before the meetings end, a prayer is offered for all those who are ill. Time is given to individuals who have been healed to share their testimonies, giving an account of what their condition was and what happened after they were prayed over.

Establishing CDP Centers


The Jesus Alive CDP coordinator establishes our Christian Discipleship Programme (CDP). The local pastors are trained and new believers are encouraged to attend the programme. CDP is implemented in every village we evangelise. The Christian Discipleship Programme (CDP) consists of more than 50 hours of Bible-based teaching sourced from multiple churches in its development of over 10 years, recorded onto 17 DVDs and translated and dubbed into multiple African languages. The curriculum is designed to disciple new believers, existing village churches, and their leadership, in living victorious lives and to teach them to fulfill the Great Commission to their village.

Jesus Alive Ministries’ Prisons Programme


Jesus Alive Gospel Outreach (JAGO) has faithfully taken the Gospel to rural Africa for the past 35 years.Staying true to our vision of “going where others will not go and reaching the unreached where they are”, we now also take the Gospel to prisons in Kenya.Taking the Gospel To Where It Is Needed – As referred to in Matthew 25: 31 – 46, prison ministry is essential. Jesus likens the righteous to those who take care of the hungry, the thirsty, the strangers, the naked, the sick and those in prison. HIS priority is people, and HE has equipped and motivated us to make the wellbeing of our fellow human beings our priority.

Reach as Many People as Possible
