The Request from our Mission Partners
Polish people are very religious and traditional (90% say they’re Catholics). Evangelical believers make only 0.3%! Gospel Joy is a ministry reaching people with the Good News of Jesus Christ through gospel music, and gospel workshops in the entire country of Poland. There are millions of Poles right now who think Christianity is religion, their salvation depends on works and we desperately want to show them Christ, as somebody has shown us. Interesting fact: wives of two of our leaders came to faith through Gospel Joy ministry! Gospel Joy was founded in 1997. Since then the ministry grew amazingly and in the last 12 years it has reached over 320,000 people with the gospel. There are many people constantly being saved by the grace of God thanks to the message shared through the music. For the last 4 years our main goal has been to reach locals, awaken a passion for Christ and train them to plant new Bible groups in their own town.
Long term impact – recording a Live CD/DVD in Polish and English (Gospel Joy w/big band – “Gospel Music greatest hits”) which will be available to Poles years after GMP team leaves Poland and will open many doors for the local Polish team to minister in the future. Evangelism – gospel will be preached during concerts. People will come to faith. Strengthening local believers – promoting local Bible groups as follow up to the concerts.
Playing at gospel music workshops (choir of 100-200 people)
5 – 8 concerts together with Gospel Joy in different cities in Poland
Visiting the concentration camp in Auschwitz
Visiting old city of Cracow and possibly Zakopane – a charming mountain town
