Description: From city to shore and jungle to township, Jesus Film Project® is providing captivating media tools and strategies to reach everyone everywhere. We started with a film called JESUS back in 1979 and from there we’ve launched into a media library of more than 200 films in over 1,800 languages! This digital library is now available right in your hands through our Jesus Film app which is free to watch, download, and share with anyone you meet, wherever you meet them. One of the most compelling ways for someone to meet Jesus is to see Him and hear Him in their own language. That’s the heartbeat of what Jesus Film Project does. Our efforts are not done in solitude. We understand that none of this is possible without partnerships at every level. Come hear and join in the conversation with our very own Kari Kennedy. There is no better person that will encourage you and help equip you in the work you are doing for Christ around the world.
