These apostolic organizations are finding creative ways to share the Gospel message.

Before His Ascension, Christ’s last words to his disciples were “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). The early Apostles took His words to heart, traveling to the farthest reaches of the world they knew to share the Good News.

If you’ve ever doubted that the Great Commission is alive and well in today’s world, look no further than these inspiring new ministries. Each one is bringing the Gospel to a new generation, and accompanying Christ’s disciples in their journey on this earth.
