Partnering for the Gospel
- June 15, 2012
Harvest America has not only brought many new relationships with churches and individuals across the country, but some exciting new ministry partnerships as well. Among them are LifeWay, NavPress, and Global Media Outreach.
LifeWay is a ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention that will host free simulcasts and webcasts of Harvest America for churches, small groups, organizations, and individuals through their webpage. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, LifeWay is one of the largest providers of Christian products and services, including books, Bibles, DVDs, church literature, music, and Internet services through LifeWay.com. The non-profit company also owns and operates 165 LifeWay Christian Stores across the nation.
NavPress is a division of Navigators which focuses on leadership development and discipleship. NavPress has partnered with Harvest America to develop a follow-up discipleship curriculum to accompany Pastor Greg’s book Start to Follow: How to Be a Successful Follower of Christ. Since 1975, the goal of NavPress has been to advance The Navigators’ calling by offering published materials to facilitate and motivate spiritual growth. The products produced are biblically rooted, culturally relevant, and practical.
Global Media Outreach (GMO) is a ministry focusing on sharing the love of Christ via the Internet, so the technology component of Harvest America aligns well with their mission. GMO will be using their website, GodLife.com, to feature video content by Greg Laurie in preparation for Harvest America. They will also be live streaming the event for their online community participants via their virtual chapel. In addition to online evangelism, GMO helps churches with follow-up discipleship.
“We are excited to join efforts with these three ministries to allow even more people the opportunity to participate in Harvest America and to provide them with resources for growing their faith,” said John Collins, Harvest Crusades Executive Director.
