Witnesses Wanted shares the unique story behind Hope Builders Ministries and opportunities for readers to partner in “rapidly winning communities for Christ through Disciple-making.”
For Johan Gous, obediently answering the Great Commission to take the gospel to everybody everywhere even to the “ends of the earth” meant into the rural bush of Africa. Reaching rural communities for Christ through indigenous Disciple-Makers is the core of his ministry’s calling. Over a forty-year period, Johan and his family began equipping, empowering, and encouraging local leasers to reach their communities with the gospel in local languages. They apply the Christian message to their people through walking with them and using the same Disciple-Making model Jesus used preparing his disciples for their task.
Witnesses Wanted shares how God can use yielded disciples as His ambassadors in their daily walk with Him through the story of Johan and his family. Hearing the stories of God providing ordinary people with resources that multiply is beyond excitingit is inspiring and grows readers’ walks of faith. That same growth and excitement is available to anyone who is ready to follow God unconditionally! Johan is a Witness and Ambassador to readers in the same way as the Disciples and inspires others to answer the Call as well!
