Frontline Ministry has a long history of doing outreach through crusades all over the Philippines. This photo is Josh giving his testimony at one of the crusades with a translator. Over the last couple decades more than a million people have made first time commitments to Christ. Amazing!
Over the last several years Frontline has seen the need to transition their ministry to planting reproducing churches. Their first church plant, Frontline Worship Center is already one of the largest churches (maybe the largest non-Catholic) in San Pablo. The vision is for this church to reproduce sites and have 17 sites in each “barangay” (sub-division) in the next ten years.
In the future rather than doing crusades all over the country and not being sure about the follow-up they will be repositioning these crusades as outreaches in each of these “barangay” as a strategy to help people find their way back to God and get them connected into a new site of Frontline Worship Center. These crusades are more like CCC’s annual “Fallapalooza” than they are like a Billy Graham Crusade. There is great music and entertainment of all kinds and then a twenty minute felt-need gospel presentation. I think this is a brilliant strategy for creating a reproducing church. I love having them in the NewThing Network.
