Celebrating 60 years of ministry!
No one walks into a room and turns off the dark. Instead, we turn on the light!

We’ve seen God do incredible things in our ministry as believers answer the call to let their lights shine!

For 60 years we have seen darkness pushed back and hope spread. But we can't stop now!
60 Million in Our 60th Year
Turn on the Light is a one-year, $6 million campaign to see lives transformed as people engage with our messages 60 million times in our 60th year of ministry.

This is a rallying cry for believers to dig deeper and shine brighter until Christ is proclaimed to the darkest corners of the world.
Give now to light up a dark world
Every gift will empower people to confidently and courageously live out their faith – turning on the light, even in the darkest places on earth. To do this, we need $6 million during our year-long campaign. Turn on the Light in your neighborhood all the way to the 10/40 window with a donation.

Turn on the Light

FROM JOSH MCDOWELL
A message of encouragement
We’re taking God at His word. Jesus said in Matthew 5, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.”
It’s time to let your light shine for all the world to see. Darkness threatens to overwhelm believers from acting and discourage unbelievers from stepping into a relationship with Jesus. We equip Christians on every continent to know what they believe and why they believe it and confidently live out their faith as beacons of hope in their relationships.
Every printed book, in-person teaching and digital message has been fueling believers’ lanterns all over the world for over 60 years.
We won’t stop until the whole world hears. For this effort, our goal is to see people engage with our messages 60 million times this year. That could mean a printed book given to a pastor in East Asia, a live event training evangelists in Nigeria, a social media video reaching a lonely teen in the US or a USB file full of digital content handed discreetly to Arabs traveling through Europe.
Each touch point invites individuals to start a relationship with Jesus, mature in their walk with Him, and boldly extend a hand to those who don’t know Him yet.
I’ve delivered messages of hope for a long time to many generations. No time is more pressing than now. Join me in turning on the light for lost generations all over the world.
Until the whole world hears,
Josh

60 YEARS of Faithful Ministry
We may be 60 years old, but the job isn’t done!
Not until the whole world hears, at least.
Spiritual darkness
Only 31.5% of the global population are Christians, and 78% of people in the 10/40 window haven’t even heard the name of Jesus before.
A recent survey* revealed that 44% of churchgoers reject the deity of Christ.
Only 4% of U.S.A teens have a biblical worldview, and yet 79% of them want to go into missions at some point in their lives. 
Shining a light
We’ve produced 156 Gospel-centered books in 128 languages (and counting).
We’ve held live events in 139 countries and work closely with international partners who minister in 190 countries.
We’ve reached people in 150 nations with our digital messaging.
Each gift turns the brightness up a little higher in different parts of the world. Let’s reach the nations and live as Christ commanded us — as cities on a hill who won't be hidden.
