Nick & Amanda Dunn Serving in Ethiopia
Our world needs salvation in Jesus more than ever. Yet, in many places it is challenging to share the gospel in ways that break through the competing messages and the suffering that so many experience. To overcome these barriers, we need to utilize strategies that follow Jesus’ example of proclaiming and demonstrating the kingdom of God.
One effective strategy that is being used in over 90 countries is community health evangelism (CHE). “CHE seamlessly integrates evangelism and discipleship with community health and development. Through CHE ministries, individuals become followers of Jesus, and communities are lifted out of cycles of poverty and disease.” (Global CHE Network)
While CHE’s effectiveness has long been established, Johnson University has never offered a degree that prepared students for this strategic vocation—that is until now. Beginning this fall, Johnson will begin offering Public Health and Global Community Health degree programs.
It has taken over two years of work to establish these health programs. We are excited to see this investment come to fruition with the first students enrolling this Fall.
Since establishing new degree programs requires significant upfront investment, we included funds to develop strategic programs like these in our $15 million Investing in the Unseen campaign. We launched this campaign last year, but have only received $7,400 for the Strategic Investment element of this campaign.
You can make an impact by making a gift to help cover the expense of developing these and other new strategic programs. You will be helping students share the gospel in ways that “break through” to the lost and hurting who need to hear and experience the good news of Jesus Christ.
