'Unprecedented' scale of evangelism planned for 2020

The campaign Advance 2020 was launched at Lambeth Palace on Monday with over a hundred leaders present.

It's being spearheaded by Andy Hawthorne, from youth charity the Message. Speaking to Premier, he said: "I felt like we need to see a multiplication of the evangelist gift but also in Isaiah 60 it says 'assemble my people' and I felt like we need to start going big again"

Those involved in the project include Hope, the Evangelical Alliance (EA) and the Church of England.

Speaking to Premier about the EA's involvement, Gavin Calver said: "We're dreaming of seeing the United Kingdom come back to relationship with Jesus as many people are released as witnesses to their friends, their communities, sports clubs. We're really excited."

Between now and 2020, there will be training events for those wanting to engage in more evangelism.

It's hoped that a united approach will lead to "the gospel being taken to the nation on an unprecedented scale".

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

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.
