Help Us Cross the Finish Line

Over the past 2 years we’ve been praying, planning, and celebrating in the victories of the REACH campaign, and moving toward our first days in the new Center of Mass Evangelism building. We are now thrilled to announce that WE’VE MADE IT!

As you know, through the process of building and remodeling, we haven’t slowed our relentless pursuit of the Harvest.

Through your overwhelming generosity, the land and both buildings are paid for! We did take out a loan for the remodeling portion of this project, and as we’re coming to completion with the remodeling we’ve been able to pay towards that loan, helping bring the overall amount down. We have, however, experienced several unforeseen expenses causing the loan to be a stretch for us. We still need over $700,000 to pay off the bank construction loan. There are two ways that you could help us with our headquarters building and all we are reaching for around the world: You can make a one-time gift towards the building, or become a monthly partner.

When you give, you aren’t just giving towards a physical “building” – you are giving towards a place that is a vital tool for training and raising up individuals who will be powerful missionaries and evangelists to the least-reached parts of the world. We ask now more than any other time in history for people to lock arms with us through partnership and prayer to see our unified cause, The Great Commission, accomplished!

The Center of Mass Evangelism

Crossing the Finish Line

One year ago, we launched the Reach Campaign and raised 85% of the funds needed to purchase the property. Although we did not quite reach our financial goal, we found favor with the banks and landowners, enabling us to still close on the property on time. Remodeling has now begun and by early 2015, we…

Building Construction Underway!

There’s some great news we wanted to share with you. The red tape of having to work with three different municipalities for the new building’s final plans to be approved wound up being more time intensive than expected. We had to work with the city of Catoosa, the county of Wagoner and the city of…

Can We Build It? Yes We Can!

We were positively overwhelmed with the participation and generosity from so many of you, our…

Last week, our staff, interns and several volunteers got out their hard hats and sledge hammers and participated in the demolition of the building.

Time to Get to Started!

It’s official – We closed on the property!  Although we did not quite reach our financial goal, we found favor with the bank and landowners, enabling us to still close on time.  We still need $114,438 as we begin renovations, but we know that what God has started, He is faithful to finish! We have…

The Transformation Begins Now

Great Things Ahead

This year, we are celebrating 15 years of ministry and have seen 1.6 million people won to Christ – and what a year it has been! Our focus has always been to win the lost in unreached areas of the world and to train and equip others to fulfill this great mission. Because of this focus, many have joined our ranks through our intensive internship program. In this season, we are stepping into a whole new phase of JSMI Global Ventures.
