Dr Michael Youssef plans to reach one million new Christians

Through his Leading The Way ministry he's looking to expand the reach of his work across the world including increasing his media footprint in the UK.

"We want to hear from one million souls who have come to Christ, figuring that out of ten people who come to Christ, only one will get in touch with us and nine perhaps will not. So, the big prayer is for ten million people. We are expanding all over the globe, and we're not slowing down.

"We are going to be multiplying our media outlets all over the world, including in the Middle East, where we will be doubling the number of our follow-up team. I am praying that in that next seven years together we can be united in making Jesus known to millions upon millions of people around the world."

Youssef unveiled his strategy to UK church leaders at a Westminster event this week.

They also include creating more digital content for millennials.

Backing the plans, Steve Clifford from the Evangelical Alliance, said: "I'm tremendously challenged by the 2025 vision.

"The thought of, at the age of 70, Dr Youssef reaching out and looking to see one million people reached by 2025 - I just love the idea which we should all get behind."

Leading The Way is celebrating 30 years of ministry through television and radio programs which are broadcast in 26 languages to audiences across six continents.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
