1000 Banners To Reach 1 Million
Would you like to help 1 million people hear the message of Christmas and the gospel for the very first time?
1,000 Indian pastors are ready to take the gospel message of Christmas to 30,000 unreached villages in India. Each of these villages has no church, has no Christians and has never heard about Jesus or the Christmas story. The majority of the Dalit Indians are unable to read.
1,000 teams will go to the unreached villages with a 6x8 foot Christmas banner (similar to the one pictured) that tells the Christmas story. The pastors will point to the pictures on the banner to tell the wonderful Christmas message. It is estimated that 1 million people will hear about Jesus for the first time and an estimated 100,000 will trust in Christ as Savior and Lord. Approximately 10,000 house churches will be started through this outreach. The teams are ready to go, but they do not have the funds to purchase the gospel banners.
It is my prayer that the Lord will move our 360Serve family to provide $10,000 to print all 1,000 banners and help 1 million people hear the gospel for the first time.
Sponsor a Radio Broadcast
Radio broadcasts provide a way for North Koreans to learn about Jesus, as well as the outside world. The North Korean government makes efforts to jam broadcasts, but radio waves transmit the Gospel to its desperate people. God is using Han to broadcast the Gospel into North Korea. Her story is incredible. One day it will be a book. Here is the short version: Han grew up in North Korea. 16 years ago Han heard the Gospel from a South Korean radio broadcast which is illegal to listen to in North Korea. She couldn’t believe that what she heard was true. She thought the radio announcer was being forced against their will to share such a positive message of hope. Han willed that one day she would escape North Korea and locate that radio station and discover the truth. She survived the famine that killed 3 million North Koreans by harvesting an herb in the mountains and making a 20 mile round trip to the market by foot. Her father was unable to work because he lost his legs to torture. At 18 years old Han sold herself to a trafficker to get to China. She escaped a brothel. She made it far inland by walking at night and hiding in the mountains during the day. She convinced a lady to hire her at a Chinese restaurant, even though it is against the law to hire an illegal North Korean. She worked at the restaurant for 5 years. She convinced Chinese police she was a Chinese citizen. She hired a broker to get her to Mongolia and then crossed a part of the Gobi Desert using only a compass and the stars. She made it to South Korea and located the radio station where she first heard the gospel. She found Christ as her Savior and Lord and is now the voice for sharing the Gospel into North Korea. Incredible. Han is one of the heroes we have the honor of supporting. You can support a half hour radio broadcast into North Korea for $50.00.
Sponsor a Sierra Leone women evangelist
The fields are ripe in Sierra Leone. Women are being used of the Lord in mighty ways to go into the fields of Sierra Leone, share the gospel with other women and churches are being birthed through this process. For $50.00 per month you can support a woman church planter.
Sponsor a Senegalese Evangelist
In Saint Louis there are 10,000 Talibe boys or beggar boys. “Talibe” means disciple of a Marabout or teacher of the Koran. Parents believe the way their son gets to heaven is through the Marabout (he takes on the role of Christ). The Marabout teach that he will take with him 120 boys to heaven. These boys need to fill their quota of rice and money by begging and if they don’t they can’t come home and sleep. One Marabout can have up to 120 boys in his Daaras or school. Once a boy turns 13 they are discarded, as they are not thought to be effective in begging anymore and are turned away and often become homeless on the streets. Basse (see picture) was a Talibe boy who was discarded by a Marabout once he turned 13. He roamed the streets completely confused and thought about committing suicide, but heard about Jesus and committed his life to Christ. Basse now serves as an evangelist who reaches out to hundreds of Talibe boys, sharing the gospel, giving Talibe boys hope in Jesus Christ. You can support an evangelist like Basse for $100 per month.
Support The 2018 Christmas Cup Crusade
Imagine five Buddhist communities in rural Thailand coming together for a two day soccer tournament, food, a trophies and awards ceremony and special meetings each evening. These evening meetings feature Christian musicians, Christian testimonies, and pastors sharing the meaning of Christmas and preaching the gospel. 2,000 people will hear the gospel and many will respond to Christ for the first time. This is very unusual for such favor to be granted to Christians in Buddhist Thailand. This is a wide open opportunity to bring the gospel to hundreds who have never understood the gospel. The total needed for this event is $8,000.
Sponsor a Senegalese Artist
God is using artists to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost of Senegal. One such artist is named Jeremy. Jeremy sings music in the Wolof language. There are 6 million Wolof in Senegal and there are only 250 known Christians of this entire people group. You can support an artist like Jeremy for $100.00 per month.
Support an Ethiopian Woman Evangelist
Jesus said, “Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.” Luke 14:23

Support Global Outreach Week to reach 1 million people for Christ
Imagine 100,000 Christians being mobilized to take the gospel door-to-door to 5 million people over the course of one week—that is Global Outreach Week in North India! These courageous believers will sacrifice one week of their lives to walk door-to-door distributing 5 million Jesus tracts and sharing the gospel with the 5 million who receive a tract. They believe 1 million people will come to Jesus over the course of this week. They will be targeting 5,000 villages. Along with sharing the gospel and leading people to Christ, they will be looking for “the person of peace” in each village. Once they identify “the person of peace” they plan on starting 5,000 house churches in those homes in 2018. Our 360Serve field director is praying for $30,000 to fund the printing of 5 million gospel tracts. $1.00 will print 120 tracts, $25.00 will print 3,000 tracts, $100.00 will print 12,000 tracts, and so on. If they print in multi-millions, the price goes down. When was the last time you had the opportunity to be a part of seeing 1 million people come to Christ? Let’s be praying for our courageous brothers and sisters in North India. Global Outreach Week takes place the last week of May each year. 100% of every dollar given to this project will go to printing tracts to help our Indian brothers and sisters take the gospel to 5 million people. If you give to this project you will receive a picture and a paragraph on the impact your gift has made.
