Mission drives innovation. That's the mantra that led The JESUS Film Project to earn the "2014 eXcelerate Innovation in Mission Award" from Missio Nexus.
Erick Schenkel, executive director of The JESUS Film Project, says his teams' creativity is fueled by the desire to provide digital resources at no cost.
"We believe that developing new digital tools that provide instant, mobile access to all of our films, in every language, empowers people to experience Jesus and share that experience on a global scale," said Schenkel.
Launched in 2012, the JESUS Film® digital platform began offering its entire video library—more than 75,000 videos –freely in the form of the Jesus Film Media™ app and a content platform. The app has been installed more than 350,000 times on iOS and Android devices. The platform allows ministry partners like YouVersion and Bible.is to stream the JESUS film on-demand to their audiences.
Gabe Handy, technical director for the app and video platform, believes that offering The JESUS Film Project's films digitally will accelerate the Great Commission. "This award recognizes our enduring commitment to reaching people with the gospel wherever they are. As we continue to see rapid adoption of mobile technology worldwide, spanning all income levels, this represents the next best opportunity to reach not just people groups, but the individual person with the gospel. We are willing to rethink how we conduct ministry and how we adapt our tools to meet this new opportunity."
