What is Christmas Without Christ?

Merry Christmas!

As Christians, these two words convey much joy, peace, and hope to us. We celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Savior of the world. Our hearts leap as the season changes, and we feel the spirit of Christmas in the air. We have such hope for what God has in store for us in the coming new year.

But what if we didn’t have this hope in Christ? Who would bear our burdens? How would we find comfort in a confusing world? Who would we look to for our purpose, meaning, and direction?

Sadly, there are still two billion people who have never heard the gospel of Jesus! They live without this hope.

In God’s sovereign plan, he has placed key men and women on the front lines who live in these nations. They are set apart as His messengers and bearers of hope. Will you join us and pray for these leaders and their families for protection and provision? We are coming alongside these hidden heroes to advance the hope of the gospel where it has not yet been told.

I’m asking you to give a Christmas gift to support the training and resources for these courageous frontline pastors, church planters and marketplace missionaries.

Your prayers and financial support have an eternal impact!

May you and your family have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

Gratefully Commissioned,

Jonathan Shibley
