FAITH NEWSWIRE – Dubai. May 2020. Jrevolution is an evangelism and discipleship ministry which aims at reaching the lost primarily through online and social media channels, but also serves to help Christians reach effective discipleship through their 7 part Jrevolution discipleship program – which is available online (YouTube) or can be completed in face to face sessions in certain cities or via webinar. While the key focus is millennials and younger men and women, people from many different age groups have completed the program and anyone can do it from anywhere.
The program is more than just a Bible study or discipleship program, but the power of this program is the actions that participants are asked to complete for a few minutes a day between the program which will help them effectively study the Word, understand how to hear from God, and grow in spiritual maturity as well as develop habits that they can use throughout their lives in order to continue growing and impacting others for Christ.
Even mature Christians have gone through this program and felt that it was useful in centering themselves back on God and prioritizing their lives around Christ again. While many are in difficult situations be it spiritually emotionally and financially due to the current crisis, we would like to encourage to draw closer to God and find encouragement and comfort in His Word and His promises at this time.
Jrevolution would also like to encourage Christians who maybe feel like God is calling them to disciple others – either one on one or in groups, but are not sure where to start or begin to make use of our content and resources to help them achieve this. There is a facilitators pack available and anyone can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the facilitators pack shared with them.
Lastly Jrevolution is actively building partnerships with churches across the nations and is offering to train leaders to run the programs with their members if they don’t have any discipleship programs running – or alternatively run the program with their young adults and youth which is a key focus for Jrevolution. Jrevolution is passionate about evangelizing and discipling and will also come alongside churches where invited, to help them recognize and utilize the evangelism gifts that that exist within their churches. Depending on resources and location Jrevolution will also come in and run the program by invitation with churches. If you are a church and are interested in getting in touch to discuss any of the above, you can email the team on email@example.com.
Founder & Director, Outreach, Christine Kuun says,’ JRevolution stands for evangelising to change mindsets to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. The online channels we use (namely website, social media channels etc.) will outwardly not look or appear very religious or too “Christian” as a way to grab the attention of those who are lost, desperate, and looking for answers –but would never consider going to a church or religious gathering. We will use various methods online to get their attention and direct them to our online videos, webinars or live broadcasts. Once someone accepts Christ, they will have access to our discipleship program (either face to face and/or workbook) which consists of 7 topics over 7 weeks. This will give them the basic tools they need to start their walk and relationship with God.’
Co-Founder & Director Church Partnerships –Shamon Lortan, adds, ‘Throughout the program we re-iterate the importance of being placed and serving in the local church. Through our church partnerships we will place individuals in churches where they can grow and be fed. The Jrevolution Program is made up of seven Sessions and concludes with reiterating commitment to our Lord and His church either in the body the individual is already placed in or in one that is most accessible to him or her.’
Jrevolution has already conducted training programs in person and online benefitting young and not-so-young disciples who have undertaken the program and have grown into maturity as well as being better placed to serve in the churches they attend.
Director–Operations, Michelle Potgieter says,” We call it a revolution because we want to change the world by the power of the Holy Spirit – to win hearts, minds and souls and open more people to the voice of the Spirit. Jrevolution is looking for church leaders who would like to open their doors to learn and teach the course, receive disciples and lead those who are called to greater service and participation. We are happy to receive content in line with our vision to publish online and to promote interaction in the church community.’
Jrevolution intends to start with administering the discipleship program and continue with Question & Answer Forums, Testimonials, Online Discussion Groups and many more activities to engage the Church Community so that the message of the gospel is heard all over the world.
