Breakthroughs, God's Kingdom, and What All People Deserve

Every person deserves to have sustainable work and to have their basic needs met. Every community needs Jesus, ethical standards, and leadership development. Here at Jesus' Economy, we are working to bring people together to make this possible.

Our world is more interconnected than it ever has been. There is more awareness of the poverty around the world than ever before. The time for jobs and churches to be in every community is now. This could actually happen in our lifetimes—if we work to make it so.

We have been working on what holistic community transformation in the developing world could look like. We have had breakthroughs and are now ready to offer a new model to the world. You can see our breakthroughs, at a glance, here.

Our breakthroughs are to Jesus' credit. He has been gracious enough to reveal these ideas to us; so, it will be in Jesus' name that this work is done.

We are already seeing God at work. The idea of holistic community transformation is catching on. We often have people tell us about how the vision of Jesus' Economy resonates with them, and how they want to be involved. There is a recognition of the need for this initiative.

God is preparing hearts and minds to work together to create a new global, spiritual and physical economy. It will not be done in any of our names; it will be done in Jesus' name. This is his economy.

I believe that for a long time now God has been making the way for this initiative and related ones: he has been preparing the way for a better world. Jesus’ Economy is just one part of that puzzle—only God knows the full picture.

Thank you so much for being a part of this initiative. Together, we're going to tackle the reasons why poverty exists: both the physical and spiritual reasons. Together, we’re going to join God in his work to make our world a better place—to bring even more of his kingdom to earth.

May God’s kingdom come and may his will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
