The ‘Spiritual Tsunami’ That Can Help Reach 1 Billion People With the Gospel by SHAWN A. AKERS for Charisma Mag
“As believers, we have the greatest message on earth. … And Jesus says that we have to go.” So says Werner Nachtigal, international president of Global Outreach Day.
Nachtigal, who has trained over a million people to share their faith, says, “”I believe if every believer is a witness, we can reach the world,” says Nachtigal.
His organization’s main goal is to mobilize 100 million Christians to pray and share the gospel in an initiative called Go 2020, scheduled for May of that year. Nachtigal calls the potential result a “spiritual tsunami.”
With the motto of “Every Believer Is a Witness,” Nachtigal says Go2020 also hopes to see 1 million new churches and faith communities planted, and for 20 million new believers to be discipled and integrated into existing and new churches.
“We have over a billion Christians on this planet. What would happen if everybody shares his faith?” Nachtigal says. “We are asking every believer during that month to reach at least one person. If Christians knew how easy it is to talk to people about Jesus … it’s the greatest message ever.”
Nachtigal encourages those interested in Go 2020 to participate in the annual Global Outreach Day. Spearheaded by Nachtigal and initiated in 2012, this year’s evangelism effort is set for May 25. Click here to find out how to participate.
