Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef is spreading the good news of the Gospel and equipping believers globally to make disciples in all nations. We are ambassadors of Christ to an increasingly hostile global culture.
The Middle East
Political and economic uprisings and uncertainty across the Arab world have opened doors for the Gospel message. As seemingly entrenched structures have fallen, many have begun to question more than just politics – questions about God, Jesus, and life eternal have led many to inquire about Christ. Grace sets Christianity apart from every other religion, and this captivating grace has been central to the spread of the gospel in Muslim majority areas.
Recently, we have expanded our reach into the Middle East, with a new broadcast in Farsi, and the extension of our radio broadcasts into Basra and Baghdad in Iraq.
Leading The Way, you are the hope that keeps us going through our hard time and when we cannot go to church! (Jamal, Syria)
In October, we released the first Yemeni-written and -performed Christian single, a mesmerizing Arabic song that airs on The Kingdom Sat, proclaiming Jesus as the only way to salvation. Spiritual warfare is intense as proponents of Islam use every tool in their arsenal to defeat the cross, but momentous breakthroughs like this Yemeni song remind us that Christ has already secured the victory.
Americas and The West
Leading The Way has been expanding its presence across the Americas, Australia, and Great Britain through radio and TV broadcasts, internet engagement, and one of Dr. Youssef’s most recent books, When the Crosses Are Gone.
While our broadcast schedule has expanded, our mission has maintained its narrow focus – passionately proclaiming uncompromising Truth. This is what sets Leading The Way apart from so many ministries. Movements come and go, but the idol of the day seems to be ‘tolerance.’ One of our daily email devotional subscribers put it well:
Thank you so much for your devotionals. They are a blessing to me. They are confirmation of all God is teaching me now. We (my husband and I) are contending for the faith in this valley in which we live and it is so hard and alienating but God is with us. We had to leave a church/family we love and had attended for over 8 years one year ago because of so much falsehood that was allowed in… God bless you for standing firm in the faith in this massive wave of delusion.
Our ministry is reaching out with the undiluted, pure Word of God at a time when people thirst for truth. Prayerful communities are supporting the proclamation of Truth on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, and WorldRevival.org. We lift our prayers together online, hopefully with you as well, with faith in the God who moves mountains.
Around the Globe
Beyond our teams in the Middle East and our field offices in the West, our global partners sharing the gospel with their neighbors and coworkers are equipped through broadcasts, the internet, and our portable, solar-powered Navigator pocket missionaries. This incredible testimony came to us from India:
In accordance with the Word of God I heard on your program, I have changed my way of living. In fact my entire family listens to the program. In my village, there are five families who are listening to the program and have also decided to live according to the Word of God. The messages you share are very thought provoking and the series you have selected are very useful.
Some of the places our Navigator pocket missionaries took the Gospel this year are Malaysia, Indonesia, and a prison in Zambia, with overwhelming response in each location. Our radio broadcasts as far-reaching as Albania, Russia, Cuba, and China are generating enormous response, including prayer requests, professions of faith, and requests for more information about Jesus.
This summer we launched the Help The Persecuted initiative to give critical support to believers around the world who suffer for the name of Christ. This has provided physical, spiritual, and emotional support to individuals who are doing the work of the Gospel in closed countries and those who have been injured or imprisoned for the Gospel, as well as for their families.
The Love of Christ Compels Us
We hope you join with us in praising the God of the Harvest who has orchestrated all of this – the seen and the unseen – for His glory. As we continue to proclaim the Word across the world, we hope you will consider joining this journey with us.
