JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) is a ministry which partners with other Kingdom ministries to make Christ-like disciples in the nations. JFHP is involved in evangelism, discipleship, church planting, leadership training, and pastoral education.

JFHP partners with other like-minded, Kingdom ministries to provide evangelistic tools (i.e. the JESUS Film, EvangeCubes, evangelistic balls), discipleship tools (i.e. Bible Story Cloths, the Proclaimer audio Bible) and training to JESUS Film teams. See Partnerships. JFHP also partners with individuals (Harvest Partners) who invest in the ministry through their time, influence, money, and expertise.

Equip and support ministry teams of local people to use the JESUS Film to grow existing churches, re-open closed churches, and start new churches. The film teams work with local and district leaders to reach and disciple people who need to know Jesus.

Missionaries and national leaders select and train local people to become JESUS Film team members.

While each team strives to evangelize, disciple and plant churches as efficiently as possible, results between teams or years or seasons can vary widely.

  • Average Annual Evangelistic Contacts per team: 10,421
  • Average Annual Decisions for Christ per team: 2,178
  • Average Annual Initial Discipleship Follow ups per team: 979
  • Average Annual Preaching Points established per team: 10

This can be due to environmental issues (i.e. rainy seasons), geographic obstacles, political/social conditions, spiritual climate, and other challenges. Therefore,

  • some teams operate with results above the average and some below the average
  • Any one team may have results above or below the average for a period of years
  • Any one team may have results above or below the average during certain seasons of the year

Every JESUS Film team must submit a plan as to where and how they will spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, disciples those who respond, plant churches, and develop leaders for those churches each year. JESUS film team members go to great extremes so those around the might know Jesus – oftentimes at great personal risk.

    JFHP efficiency measures are averages extending from 1998, when JESUS Film Harvest Partners began receiving reports from JESUS Film teams, to the current date. They are calculated as 'Cumulative Operating Expenses' divided by 'Cumulative JESUS Film Team Totals.'

    Each number is a precious person with a real-life story…a person God created and loves…a person for whom Jesus Christ gave His life so they might have life…abundantly…eternally!

Evangelistic contact refers to a person to whom the story of God's love through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ was presented. Individuals may hear the gospel presented multiple times through attending several JESUS Film showings and/or through the use of other ministry tools before choosing to follow Christ. Individuals in attendance at each JESUS Film showing are counted and recorded as evangelistic contacts.

A preaching point is a gathering of persons (officially or unofficially), in a given locale, who meet consistently for worship and study of God's Word.

WEF keeps JFHP field costs down. JFHP could not do what it does so efficiently if WEF did not support the infrastructure on the field that JFHP utilizes. The evangelistic results that come out of this ministry are directly related to the use of the field infrastructure in place.
