Thriving in Christ!
By: David J. Swandt, Founder and President - Twenty20 Faith
As God's Word goes out continuously around the world, it accomplishes the work it was sent out to perform - and according to Isaiah 55:11, it never returns void of doing so.
The promise of living a thriving life in Christ begins with embodying the power of God's Word and embracing His presence in everything we do. For all of us, the life-long realization of this promise is built upon four universal pillars which transcend culture, nationality and past difficulty:
1 - Deciding to Follow Christ 2 - Growing Spiritually for a Lifetime 3 - Engaging Other Christians Regularly 4 - Being Equipped to fulfill God's Plan.
There's no magic recipe here - it requires commitment. There's no promise of life without trials - in fact trials will come. But the bottom line is this - through it all God is with us, He'll never leave us and life is just better in relationship with Christ. As Jesus said,
". . . I came so that you could have life - indeed, so that you could live life to the fullest." John 10:10
Today and into the future, the ministry and outreach of Twenty20 Faith is centered on these four universal pillars, and to do its part to help make Jesus' promise of a fulfilled life a reality to countless people around the world.
We cherish your continued prayer and support.
Our 4 Pillars of Ministry:
Our four pillars of ministry center on a holistic approach to helping people realize their full life potential in a thriving relationship with God. Each pillar represents a part we play in ministry to assist people all around the world in this amazing life-long journey:
EVANGELISM: Sharing our faith with those contemplating a relationship with Christ is at the heart of our mission and ministry. No decision in life is bigger than this.
Today, through our partnership with YouVersion, Twenty20 Faith's evangelism outreaches extend world-wide in 50 languages, with nearly 6,000 people having indicated to us they've given their life to Christ as a result of this outreach. God is good!
DISCIPLESHIP: A decision to follow Christ is an event that marks the beginning of an extraordinary life-long journey - growing in faith and living out our Christian life with purpose and fulfillment.
Twenty20 Faith's discipleship program is a set of foundation-building devotionals designed to nurture this growth by focusing on the most important aspects of our Christian faith. Our full set of devotionals are deployed on the YouVersion Bible App in 37 languages world-wide. Total readership of our devotionals is approaching 2 million globally.
Current Expansion Focus - Pilot Initiatives In Process
Twenty20 Faith is currently laying the groundwork for expanding our technology and global ministry capabilities to include:
A - Multi-lingual ministry teams for 1x1 and small group ministry. B - Building a referral network of trusted ministries and churches globally. C - Geo-targeted, pro-active outreaches to people groups world-wide.
We are excited about these new endeavors!
EDUCATION: Future Expansion
Realizing full purpose and potential requires so many dimensions of life to come together - under God's orchestration - and one of those critical aspects common to nearly everyone is being prepared and equipped with the right knowledge and education. As we look toward our longer term ministry future, we believe God is unfolding a part for Twenty20 Faith to play in equipping others with high quality education and training. We intend to begin planning in 2022.
