The spread of Christianity has been made possible by a number of ministries that have traveled throughout the world over the past 2,000 years.
Thanks to the dedication of their fervent believers, this religion has become one of the most followed in the world today.
Despite its current status, this religion’s mission of reaching out to others continues, even in the 21st century. In this article, we will profile the most prominent ministries in evangelical Christianity in 2017.
1) Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN)
Started by Prophet TB Joshua of Nigeria, SCOAN, or the Synagogue Church of All Nations, started as a fledgling following, counting only eight disciples among its flock in the beginning.
After a series of reported miracles, though, their numbers begin to grow until they had the clout to build a magnificent church to house their congregation.
Although natural disasters have flattened three of their previous houses of worship, they have had the resources to rebuild it each time.
Taking full advantage of the power of the internet, daily sermons given by Prophet TB Joshua reach every corner of the globe.
Using live streaming video on Emmanuel TV when he isn’t busy delivering live shows in various locations around the world, his message is reaching more souls with each passing day.
2) Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
One of the most famous evangelical ministries in the world, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has been delivering Christian sermons throughout the United States, Canada, and in other parts of the world for decades.
Although much of the travel and events these days are being led by his son Franklin Graham, Billy Graham is still alive and delivering talks to people around the world at the ripe old age of 96.
This organization’s strength continues to be in television, with quarterly sermons being delivered in countries around the world every year.
3) World Outreach Ministries
Started by Jason Peeples in 1979 as a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the word of God and aiding poor people in various corners of the planet, World Outreach Ministries continues to do a considerable amount of good in 2017.
From providing medical clinics to training leaders on the ground, they have enabled countless people over the years to begin to help fend for themselves in addition to finding the word of the Lord.
4) Oasis World Ministries
Founded in Maple Grove Minnesota in 1996, the mission of Oasis World Ministries is to help spread the word of God around the globe and to teach others how to do it effectively.
While proselytizing to other people around the world is one of their core missions, they have also spearheaded acts of beneficence around the world, as they have drilled fresh water wells in many third world countries.
Having reached their goal to have more than one million people choose to adopt Jesus as their lord and savior in 2010, they are well on the way to making a splash as one of the world’s top Christian ministries.
5) Chris Mikkelson Evangelistic Ministries
A newcomer to the Christian missionary scene, Chris Mikkelson Evangelistic Ministries was founded in 2014 to help bring the message of God to the most far-flung corners of the world.
After having served under a number of well-established pastors, he has taken to the world to help save those in need of the love of Christ.
Although he has only been around for a few years, he has already established a great deal of buzz around his sermons.
As the New Year progresses, we will be keeping an eye on the progress of this promising new ministry.
