Global Outreach Day

I just found out about Global Outreach day, which in 2020 is a Global Outreach month. This network has the audacious goal of seeing 1 billion Gospel shares in May 2020.

1 billion. That's not a typo. I think it is a both crazy and awesome goal.

Find out more here: https://www.go2020.world/home

If your church needs training so your people can share the Gospel with confidence, please contact me and let me know.

Announcing On the Road Season 2

For any people or place to be fully reached with the Gospel we need to see hundreds and thousands of followers of Jesus living out the Gospel and making disciples as part of their everyday life. This season I wanted to celebrate and learn from those insiders. Everyone you hear interviewed is NOT getting paid by a ministry or church.

If you can't view the audio player, click here.


To make sure you don’t miss the start of this second season, take a second to subscribe right now in your podcast app. If you’re listening in a browser, head to my blog at www.pheaney.com and sign up to get new episodes delivered to your email. Look for “Subscribe via Email”.

One more thing. Could you share this trailer? A social media share would be fine, but even more I’d love it if you would think of a specific person to share this with and encourage them to subscribe. Thanks for your help!

Spiritual Interest Survey - Pekin Community High School

We recently engaged local high school students with the following questions:

  • Do you have any spiritual beliefs?
  • Which of these best describes your belief about God?
  • Which of the following describes your opinion of Jesus Christ?
  • Which of the following describes what you believe happens after people die?
  • If you could know God personally would you be interested?

Here are the results that surprised me:

  • 74% of students want to know God personally (and equally as many gave us contact information to follow up with them).
  • Over half of students believe that people go to heaven or hell after they die.
  • Only 1/3 of students described Jesus as "the only Son of God"
  • Only 15% of students have a Biblical worldview.

Let me know if you want more details on this survey.

If you or your church would like help gauging the spiritual interest in your community or in a specific demographic, please contact me.
