How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written,'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!' Romans 10:15
How The Evangelist Project Began
The Evangelist Project was created through a grant from the Calvary Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan. This was in response to the story of Muslim refugees hearing and embracing the gospel when it was told by former Muslims who now follow Jesus. The grant covered airfare to Lesvos Island, car rental, lodging, meals and related expenses. We looked for any Arab or Farsi speaking evangelist who would come and engage with refugees outside the Moria refugee camp. Quickly the ministry to Afghans took on a life of of it’s own, and has become a powerful outreach on Lesvos by ministries from Europe. The ministry to Arabic speakers has centered around a young Palestinian evangelist, Mohamad Shreih, living in Finland. We continued to fund Mohamad’s trips to Lesvos and to a church plant in Athens.
Our focus is Matthew 28:19-20. Evangelism and baptism, immediately engaging the new believers in the Bible, discipling them in the things of Christ, and then training them to share their story of following Jesus… to become evangelists.
