Is Mass Evangelism Effective? Recently I finished earning my Doctorate of Ministry Degree at Oral Roberts University and the focus of my research was mass evangelism. I looked at historical, theological, and academic research into mass evangelism and my research project involved collecting information about an evangelism crusade that we did in Caicó, Brazil. So what did the research show about the effectiveness of doing mass evangelism?

The Story is in the Numbers
I recently finished my Doctorate of Ministry degree at Oral Roberts University. I used this Brazil crusade as my research project and I did a survey of a random cross section of people at the crusade. The project was designed to give a snapshot picture of an evangelistic crusade. The goal was to discover who came to the crusade, why they came, and what impact the crusade had on the city.
Here are some of the stats from the crusade. Caicó, Brazil has a population of 66,246 people. The nine evangelical churches in the city have 1,357 believers which equals about 2% of the population.
How Many People Were Saved? 82.6% of the crowd repeated the prayer of salvation with me. 641 people filled out decision cards. This represents a 43% increase in the number of Christians in the city.
Did Miracles Really Occur? 48.7% of the crowd reported that they arrived with pain in their bodies. 78.5% of those who came with pain in their bodies felt better after the healing prayer. Of the 182 people on Saturday night who answered “yes” to the question of whether they arrived with pain in the their bodies and said that they felt better, 176 (96.7%) “strongly agreed” or “agreed” that they had received a miracle.
Was the Crusade Worthwhile? 100% of the pastors agreed that the crusade was worth the time, money, and preparation.
How Many People Did We Impact? Our team ministered to a total of about 7,792 people at the crusade. Our three-day soul winning conference was used to train local believers in how to pray for the sick, cast out demons, and lead people to Jesus. By the third night of the soul winning conference, 485 believers were in attendance. The church where the meeting was held was completely full and we filled the street in front of the church with chairs for the overflow crowd. 792 young people attended the youth concert. 504 children were in attendance at the children’s festival.
Who Came to the Crusade? 39% of the crowd was male and 61% was female. The average age was 38.
How Did People Hear About the Crusade? Of the people who responded to my survey, 163 heard about the meeting from a friend. 79 were invited by a family member. 123 saw a poster. 132 received a flyer. 84 saw an advertisement on Facebook. 41 learned about the meeting on Instagram. 63 responded to a message on WhatsApp. 127 heard about the meeting on the radio. 39.74% of those personally invited to the crusade came which shows how important it is to have local church involvement in the crusade.
Why did People Come to the Crusade? 460 people responded to the question “Why did you come to this meeting?” 107 said, “My friend invited me.” 77 said they were curious about what was happening. 44 wanted to hear the music. 116 said they needed a miracle. 106 said they wanted to see miracles. 61 came because their pastor told them they should come. 112 came because they are curious about God. 6 did not know why they came and the rest gave some other reason why they came. These “other” answers include: Jesus called me, to seek the presence of God, because I am an evangelical, because I wanted to, because my wife invited me, I came to seek God, because I had a need, and because someone asked me.
How did people come to the crusade? 182 respondents came by car (38.6%). 42 came by public transportation (8.9%). 52 came by church bus (11%). 129 came by motorcycle (27.4%). 4 came by bicycle (0.8%). 59 walked (12.5%). 3 came by other means of transportation (0.6%).
Were the crusade attendees people who regularly go to church? 457 people responded to the question, “How often do you attend your church?” 23 said they never attend (5%). 57 said they attend 1-2 times per year (12.5%). 18 said they attend 6-12 times per year (3.9%). 44 said they attend 1-2 times each month (9.6%). 78 said they attend every Sunday (17.1%). 237 said they attend 2 or more times each week (51.9%).
Are those who got saved willing to go to a church for follow up? 80 people “strongly agreed” they would be willing to visit a church (37.2%). 111 “agreed” they would visit a church (51.6%). 14 were not sure if they would visit (6.5%). 9 “disagreed” that they would visit a church (4.2%). 1 “strongly disagreed” that he would be willing to visit a church (0.5%).
I’m sorry if I overwhelmed you with numbers in this episode but the truth is that numbers are important. God even named a whole book in the Bible, “Numbers.” The reality is that every number represents a story. Every statistic stands for a person. At the crusade in Caicó, Brazil many people were touched by God, saved, and healed. You played an important part in making that happen! Thank you for your prayers and your giving.

Is mass evangelism effective. Recently I finished earning my doctorate of ministry degree at oral Roberts university. In the focus of my research was mass evangelism. I looked at historical theological and academic research into massive evangelism. And my research project involves collecting information about an evangelistic crusade that we did in Keiko Brazil. So what did the research show about the effectiveness of doing mass evangelism?
Evangelism Podcast Host (00:31):
Well, Jesus said go into all the world and preach the gospel. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be welcome to the evangelism podcast with Dr. Daniel King, where Daniel interviews, full-time evangelists, pastors, missionaries, and normal everyday Christians to discover how they share their faith, their powerful testimonies and amazing stories that will inspire you to reach people with the good news. And now here’s your host missionary and evangelist Daniel King.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (01:07):
Welcome to the evangelism podcast on Daniel King. And I’m excited about telling people about Jesus. And today I have a special guest Rubens Cunha who has been a very close friend for many years. He’s from the nation of Brazil. Rubins thank you for joining me today. Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here. So a few years ago, I decided to get my doctorate of ministry at or Roberts university. And the program is two years of classes. And then one year of doing an applied research project. And since I’m called to be an evangelist, I decided to do my research project on mass evangelism, especially dealing with the question is mass evangelism effective. And so for a year, and even more than a year, I went through the history of mass evangelism, looking at how God has used mass evangelism throughout church history, looking at the theology of mass evangelism, looking at the scholarship involved in mass evangelism with both the critics and the people who are in favor of mass evangelism. And then I had to do a research project concerning mass evangelism, and I was looking all over the world for the right place to go the right city to go do my research. And you invited me to come to Brazil. And I did my research project at one of your crusades. We, we work together at that crusade in Kayako, Brazil, and we had a tremendous time of ministry there. Yes, it was wonderful. I am very glad you decided to come to Brazil.
Rubens Cunha (03:00):
We were able to impact a city for eternity. And now we have this amazing doctoral work that you wrote just showing we scientific evidence, the effectiveness of mass evangelism.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (03:18):
So the purpose of this project was to survey a random cross section of people at the crusade and ask them questions about why they came to the crusade, how involved they were in the church before they came, what response they had to, the message, whether any of the people received a miracle. And kind of the idea was to give a snapshot picture of an evangelist at crusade. And the goal was to discover who came to the crusade, why they came and what impact the crusade had on the city. And so I came back with surveys, filled out. We had boxes full of surveys, just all the people that we interviewed. And I want to go through some of these numbers and feel free to jump in if you have any insight on any of these numbers. So we went to the city of Keiko Brazil. Could you tell people where is Keiko? Brazil
Rubens Cunha (04:19):
[Inaudible] is in the Brazilian state of [inaudible] a city debt faced tremendous social and spiritual challenges with a high rate of suicide at the time, in terms of percentage of population, it was one of the highest in the countries, a place where churches faced tremendous challenge to grow because of, of persecution and opposition that takes place in that CDN. I need you to say something here as well. Our audience, I believe they need to understand that this campaign faced tremendous challenges, unusual challenges. The first of them being a trucker’s strike, we had in Brazil at the time.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (05:07):
So all the truckers in the whole country went on strike and our sound system, our sound stage was coming from another state and it got stopped on the road. It wasn’t able to make it for the first night of the crusade, which was a big
Rubens Cunha (05:22):
Problem. Yes, we had to improvise and find local stage and local sound equipment to, to continue the campaign. And because of that, trucker’s strike, the city was running out of fuel. The supermarket shelves were becoming empty. You can imagine if all the transportation system in the nation stops, it it’s chaotic and that’s, that’s what the city was facing. So we had tremendous challenges in that area because of this truckers strike preventing even food to reach the city, but that resulted in something else. That also became a challenge for us because of the truckers strike. A lot of people were out of work. They didn’t have a lot to do. And there was a religious holiday in the city. And in that holiday, the Catholic Bishop gathered a large crowd. People were seating their homes. They didn’t have a lot to do before our campaign.
Rubens Cunha (06:25):
And in that event that the Catholic church organized the Bishop specifically told the people not to go to the crusade and he incited the people to oppose and persecute us. And I’m telling you, I’ve been to many Muslim nations, I’ve received death threats. I received all kinds of threats. I have never received as many threats in my life. As in that Kayako campaign, I never received as much hate mail in my life as in that campaign. But despite those challenges we have here, avid dance that the gospel works and evangelists campaigns work to bring growth to the church, to bring salvation to the loss, to build up the body of Christ and to transform entire CDs with the gospel.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (07:20):
Amen. Well, I’m so grateful for all the work that you and your team put into making this crusade happen. I remember you told me Daniel, I hope that we have a very big crusade, so you can have, you know, lots of big numbers for your research. And you’ve done many crusades in Brazil. Many of them have been far more successful numerically than this one particular crusade where I did my research. But I think that even though there was opposition, and even though we did not have the total results that sometimes we wish for that still this research is extremely valuable and in some ways is even more valuable because it was collected at a crusade where there were so many issues. All right. So let’s go through some of the statistics. First of all, let me paint a picture of the city of Keiko. According to their website, they have a population of 66,246 people.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (08:25):
So it’s not a huge city. There there’s much bigger cities in Brazil, but it’s not a small village either. You’ve got 66,000 people and we surveyed the nine evangelical churches in the city. And we found out that if you added up the total membership of the nine churches, there’s only nine evangelical churches. At that time, they had 1,357 believers in total. So the evangelical believers were only about 2% of the population of the city. So one of the first questions that really concerned me in my research was how many people were saved. So when I give an altar call, I try not to exclude everyone. I try to include everyone in praying the prayer of salvation, because even if someone has, at some point as a child, they said a prayer, or maybe they were baptized. They may not be serving the Lord. And so I try to go for a hundred percent participation in the salvation prayer.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (09:33):
And in our survey, we found that 82.6% of the crowd repeated the prayer of salvation with me. And they said, yes, I want my sins to be forgiven. And then we sent out ushers into the crowd to talk to the people who gave their lives to Jesus. And over the course of the three day event, 641 people filled out decision cards. So 641, a that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the millions that we’ve seen between your ministry and my ministry we’ve seen come to Jesus. But for that city 641 represents a 43% increase in the number of Christians in the city, in a three-day period. Isn’t it.
Rubens Cunha (10:25):
That’s amazing. That’s amazing. And I completely agree with your earlier statement that yes, we have had other crusades that have bigger numbers, but I believe God allowed this research to take place in this CD to show everyone without a shadow of a doubt that evangelistic crusades work and have a great impact. If even despite, even in the midst of all the turmoil we had, we still had success. Imagine what happens if everything was ruining Smith.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (11:01):
Another question that I asked was, did miracles really occur? Now, this is a very difficult question to deal with scientifically. But you can get a sense of what happened by serving the people. And so 48.7% of the crowd reported that they arrived with pain in their bodies. So 48.7% came and said they had pain somewhere in their body when they, they, and they came looking for a miracle. And now here is the amazing statistic of those 48.7% that came with pain in their body. 78.5% of them said that they felt better after the healing prayer.
Rubens Cunha (11:50):
This is amazing. And it shows us how we, despite the Medico advances of our generation, there are still many people out there in need of miracle healing. And when we promote a mass crusade in which there is prayer for miracles, people will come in search of healing.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (12:10):
And so of the hundred and 82 people on the Saturday night who answered yes to the question of whether they arrived with pain in their body and said that they felt better. So this is the people who said they had pain. And then they said that they felt better. 176 of them, or 96.7% strongly agreed or agreed that they had received a miracle. And so of the people that this, this is actually an amazing statistic. You have close to 50% of the crowd that comes with pain of those 50%, 78.5% of them said that they felt better. And of those 90, almost 97% of them said that, yes, I received a miracle from Jesus. Wow. And this is amazing. I mean, in a, in a crusade, sometimes people say, you know why aren’t all healed and I’ve never seen everyone get healed. I’m still praying for that crusade to happen. Where every single sick person who comes gets healed, but by any measure to have almost 80% of the people say that they feel better after the healing, prayer is a phenomenal success in the arena of healing.
Rubens Cunha (13:25):
Absolutely. And let us not forget that behind those numbers are real people. People who are hurting people who are suffering people in pain, and they had the experience with the power of God that will shape their lives. And, Oh, a T.L. Osborn used to say that a miracle we will preach in generations. And those people who received a miracle in that campaign, they will be telling their neighbors, they’ll be telling their family members, their coworkers, their colleagues at school, they’ll be telling their children and grandchildren that one day, somebody prayed for them in the name of Jesus. And they received a miracle from God.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (14:05):
Another question was how many total people did we impact? So our team ministered to a total of 7,792 people at the crusade over the three day, we also did a soul winning conference that was used to train local believers in how to pray for the sick cast out demons and how to lead people to Jesus. And so a total of 485 believers came to the training conference to be trained. The, I remember the church that we were at was completely packed out. There was a balcony. The balcony was completely full and those sessions were so powerful. And then 792 young people attended the youth conference and 504 children came to the festival. And so we had a strategy for reaching every single level of society from the young people, to the children, to the adults, and then training the believers. What are some of the things that you share with the believers in those training sessions?
Rubens Cunha (15:07):
One of them is about Soul Winning. We encourage them to go out and reach people beyond the four walls of their church. We challenged them to get out there in their workplace, in their place where, where people are in their homes, in the Plaza, in the offices and share the gospel with them. We equip them to do that. We also teach them how to pray for healing. We strongly believe that the ministry of healing is not just for some specially anointed people, but for the entire body of Christ. So one of the sessions is teaching on how to pray for healing. And at the end of it, we have the believers praying for one another and miracles happen. And a lot of people get excited. So you have usually people weeping because they received a miracle from God and people weeping because they prayed for somebody and they experienced a miracle through their lives.
Rubens Cunha (16:04):
We also teach about the ministry of deliverance. A lot of people are still under oppression of the devil. We see that a lot in, in nations where people are still involved with witchcraft religions, which is very common in Brazil. So this is a major part of the ministry work we do. And hundreds every night are set free from demonic oppression in those campaigns. But we also teach about the power of the Holy spirit, equipping the believer to preach the gospel, to win souls. And after death, we pray for people. We pray for the baptism and the Holy spirit. We pray that God will give people spiritual gifts. And that’s usually an evening of great revival.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (16:51):
So who came to the crusade? 39% of the crowd was male. 61% was female. The average age was 38. Actually that’s a little bit skewed because I wasn’t allowed to survey the people under 18. So for people 18 above the average age was 38. I think if you included the young people, the average age would have gone down quite a bit because there’s always lots of young people. How did people hear about the crusade of the people who responded to my survey? 163 heard about the meeting from a friend 79 were invited by a family member 123 of them saw a poster and came because of a poster on the wall or on a light post 132 came because they received a flyer 84 saw an advertisement on Facebook. 41 heard about the meeting on Instagram 63 responded to a message on what’s app 127 of them heard about the meeting on the radio.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (17:57):
And then 39.7, 4% of those personally invited to the crusade came, which shows how important it is to have local church involvement in the crusade. So you’ve got a variety of different advertising avenues. Here. You have invitations from friends, you’ve got posters, flyers, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, you’ve got the radio advertisements and all of them proved to be somewhat effective. You can’t point to any one that was most effective, except for someone receiving a personal invitation. And so sometimes people ask like, why do, why do crusades cost so much money? Well, the reason is because in order to get people to come, you have to do a variety of, of advertising methods. And the goal is to saturate the entire community so that with the advertising so that people will know about it and come to the crusade.
Rubens Cunha (19:02):
Absolutely. The goal of advertising is that every single person in town, we have an opportunity to come and hear the gospel at the crusade. And it’s amazing to me how your research provided evidence that local church involvement is very important. It’s essential for the success of the campaign. As your research indicated, when believers is step out of their comfort zone, when believers step out of their, just routine of going to church on Sunday to actually go out and invite the lost to an evangelistic event, we have a tremendous harvest of souls. So that’s it’s very important for our evangelist friends out there listening to this podcast, make sure my friend, when you were doing a campaign, make sure you equip the local church to go out and work with you to reach souls. Why
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (20:03):
People come to the crusades? So 107 people said, my friend invited me 77, said that they were just curious about what was happening. 44 wanted to hear the music 116 people said they came because they needed a miracle, which is very interesting because there there’s several different paradigms of doing mass evangelism, which I studied in my, my research for my doctoral project. So you have the Billy Graham method, which Billy Graham used very effectively here in the United States and other countries for many years, where he gets lots of church involvement. He does a big choir made up of believers from the local churches and all the churches invite people to come and here the, the evangelist and, and so that was Billy Graham’s method. He had great organization and he really adapted that from Billy Sunday, who was in the early 19 hundreds and DL moody, who was in the late 18 hundreds, both very strong at organizing the churches and organizing the crews, the crusade meetings that they had.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (21:19):
Then you have another paradigm, which is the, the Luis Palau paradigm. He was trained up under Billy Graham’s ministry, but then he had an insight about changing it from a crusade into a festival. And so he started using popular music artists to attract people. He used bikes, doing tricks and face painting bouncy houses to attract the kids and really turns his evangelistic events into festivals that the whole family can come to and attract people with entertainment, which that has worked very well here in the United States, but often in Africa and also in Latin America. One thing that really attracts people to come to crusades is miracles. And people in Africa will walk miles
Rubens Cunha (22:23):
And miles, sometimes days
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (22:25):
To come and receive a miracle. And so I would call that the T.L. Osborn method of mass evangelism, because T.L. Osborn great evangelists from here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he pioneered using mass healing prayer in order to attract people to the crusade and relying upon God’s power to heal the sick. And we proved in this crusade, that miracles was one of the big reasons that people came. So 44 people came because they wanted to hear the music, but 116 came because they said that they needed a miracle, another hundred and six said that they came not because they needed a miracle, but because they wanted to see a miracle. Wow. And so miracles was the most popular reason why people came. And so we have that documented proof that miracles draw people to come hear about Jesus.
Rubens Cunha (23:25):
That’s, that’s truly impressive. Then you, I believe that there could be many different methods of evangelism and they may be effective in different ways. You know, as long as the message remains, the same methods may change in average generation for different groups in different society. The method that works best in the United States might be different. As you said, of the maths methods we use in developing countries. However, I favor miracle because that’s the method of Jesus. And the early church used when we read the gospels, when we read the book of acts Jesus and the disciples, they preach to the masses and they ministered healing and deliverance to the crowds. And this method is still valid today. And whenever and wherever in the world, we proclaim the name of Jesus with signs and wonders. The crowds will come and the masses will come to Christ.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (24:27):
Amen. Well, another 61 people came because their pastor told them they should come. And then 112 people came because they were curious about God. So just being curious about God, I think that’s another real reason why people would come to a crusade and then six people. So they didn’t know why they came. They just showed up. And then what’s interesting. We also asked how did people come to the crusade? So 38% came by car 8% came by public transportation. 11% came by church bus. 27% came by motorcycle. Four people came by bicycle and 12 and a half percent walked to get there. So you have all these different ways that people have of, of getting to the crusade. And we also asked how far they came from, you know and we found that at least in this town people came from fairly close, within five kilometers. Most of the people came. I think if we did the survey at a crusade in Africa, we might get a 50 kilometer radius of people that would come.
Rubens Cunha (25:43):
I think you’ve made a great point there that regarding transportation, it varies with where the crusade is taking place. Some, some areas are more urban, other cities. If they have more of a rural surrounding, then we gonna have different ways. People who get you, they campaign. One thing that is, I believe important, you emphasized always that part of our strategy, we try to help the churches, to bus people from remote areas, especially villages that have very little gospel witness, or that don’t have a church yet. And we use that as a strategy to plant churches as well. Typically we sponsor a bus to bring people from a village that doesn’t have a church. So the people in that bus, they hear the gospel, they see the miracles and as the bus takes them back to their villages somebody from a local church who being site, the buzz is starting to follow-up and inviting to a service usually the next day. And that’s how we had over 400 church birthed out of campaigns in the last 10 years.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (26:54):
Yeah. So in this crusade, I remember you sent me about four pictures of churches that were actually planted because of this crusade. So there were only nine evangelical churches in the city and out of the crusade were birth for brand new churches. So I mean, what a tremendous testimony.
Rubens Cunha (27:15):
Yeah, absolutely. And some of those were planted in villages that did not have a church before ever. So that’s truly pioneering work being done as well through crusade evangelism.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (27:29):
Another thing we wanted to find out was whether we were preaching to the choir or whether we were preaching to people that were sinners, who genuinely needed Jesus. And so that’s a little bit difficult to pin down with a question, but we decided one way to look at it was how often people attended church. Because if the choir they’re probably in church all the time, but people who are lost, they probably don’t attend church very often. And so 5% of the crowd so that they never attend church, that they never go to church at all 12 and a half percent of the crowd so that they only attend church one to two times a year. So that’s probably someone who’s going on Christmas Eve or on Easter. They, they might consider themselves Christian, but they’re definitely not living a Christian life because they’re, they’re never going to church very often.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (28:30):
3.9% said that they attend six to 12 times per year. So that might be once a month, 9.6% said that they attended one to two times each month. So that’s getting into someone who’s, who’s more devout. 17% said that they tend to church every Sunday. And then we did have a significant number of Christians that were there. So 51%, almost 52% said that they attend church more than two times per week. And that’s actually good because you want the local churches to be involved in the event. So you want them to come. But I think a really good ratio would be one Christian for every non-Christian or if every Christian could invite two or three of their friends, you could have a ratio of one Christian for every three non-believers what, what do you think would be a good ratio?
Rubens Cunha (29:27):
I agree with you that the more unreached people, the more unsaved we can have in a campaign the best. And again, let us remember. We faced unusual challenges in this city and this, this proportions may vary from campaign to campaign. But I think there is a very interesting point that we must realize here the fact that people that usually would not go to a church, they go to a crusade, people that usually would not be comfortable participating in a regular service for whatever reason they are. Okay. Going to an outdoor event where the gospel is being preached, where prayers offered, where there’s good music, and that’s the people we want to reach. That’s the people, Jesus died for them. God loves them. And because they, they typically wouldn’t attend a regular service. We are able to preach the gospel to them at the crusade. Then
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (30:26):
We asked the people who filled out decision cards, whether they would be willing to attend a church to, for follow up information. So we’re, we were talking about how do we follow up on these new believers? In what we’ve found is that 37% strongly agreed that they would be willing to go to church to find out more about Jesus. Another 50% agreed that they would visit a church and another 6%, they weren’t sure if they would visit. And then nine people said that they probably wouldn’t visit a church. They disagree. And then one person he strongly disagrees says he definitely would not be willing to go to a charity, even though he had just gotten saved, but almost 80% who filled out decision cards at the crusade said that they were willing to go to a church the next day in order to learn more about Jesus awesome news
Rubens Cunha (31:29):
Some, and don’t forget we have people there 80% of them made a decision that they would go to a church, but most likely all of them will be visited by believers in the days following the campaign, because as they made the decision for Christ, their names are given to the local churches that had teams trained to follow up with them. So I pray that even that, that one person that said would not go to church has changed his mind. So we’ve talked about
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (32:02):
A lot of different numbers in this episode of the evangelism podcast, but the truth is that numbers are important. God even wrote a whole book of the Bible in named it numbers. And the reality is that every number represents a story. Every statistic stands for a person at this crusade in Keiko, Brazil. Many people were touched by God. They were saved. They were healed by God and the churches saw growth after the crusade. And so overall, this crusade was a tremendous success. And so after looking at the question are mass crusades effective is mass evangelism effective? I would say based on this snapshot picture of this crusade and based on my historical research and theological research and looking academically at the question, I would say the answer is yes, mass evangelism is effective, is not the only way that people can come to Jesus, but it is an effective way to mobilize the church to be focused on evangelism.
Rubens Cunha (33:21):
Amen. What, what pressures information you were able to gather and with scientific evidence and research? Yes. I fully agree with your statement that those are numbers. They are important for us. They helped us to redirect and refine our strategies. If you’re listening to us and you’re an evangelist, I hope you listen to this podcast again, because it has so many, a wonderful, precious piece of information that can help you fine tune your ministry. And I am excited, Daniel, as you say that behind those numbers, we have people, people we are going to meet in heaven. People that made a decision for Christ in the, in, because you decided to go to [inaudible] and do your research and a crusade there.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (34:11):

Thank you. Www.Gga.Global. Now I know I’m being interviewed here, but I have to ask you a question, go for it. If someone is listening to us and they want to get a hold of this wonderful research, how can they do that?
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (34:45):
I took my entire doctoral project and I published it on Amazon. You can find a link to it on my website, King ministries.com. You can look at all the research, all of the historical, all of the theological and the academic research behind this conclusion is mass evangelism effective. And if you’re writing a paper for a master’s degree or a doctorate on the subject of evangelism, you definitely need to go through this material, quote it, footnote it because this material is a powerful study that shows the effectiveness of mass evangelism.

Thank you. Thank you. This has been wonderful. Thank you so much for being with me on the evangelism podcast. I’ll thank you so much for having me here. It’s been a great pleasure.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (35:42):
Thanks so much for listening to the evangelism podcast today, I’m excited about telling people about Jesus. And what we found is that as we go to different nations of the world, it takes us an average of about $1 for every person we’re able to reach with the gospel. And so some countries are more expensive. Some countries are a little bit less expensive, but on average, we’ve invested about $1 for every person we’re able to lead to Jesus. So today I’m asking you to go to my website, King ministries.com and give $1, $2, $5, become a monthly partner, help us to lead people to Jesus. Imagine you can start a party in heaven with just $1. Also go to Apple iTunes, leave us a review for the evangelism podcast with Daniel King. So lots of people can find this evangelism podcast. God bless you
