The Gospel to the Youth of the World

Schools, Streets, Screens.

Burning Question

How can we reach young people who have never set foot in a church? How can we make it available to them in a way they can understand?

Those are the burning questions that drive the vision of Jesus Revolution: to give the gospel to the youth of the world. We long to see young people around the world being met with the love and presence of God. We burn to see salvation and healing spread to the nations of Europe and the world.

We believe that a generation is rising up with a different boldness and faith. We believe that the harvest is plentiful, and that workers need to be trained and sent to enter that harvest.

We believe in the local church. One of our main activities is to equip youth in local churches to reach their cities with the gospel. To this end we have a School and Student ministry called Jesus Movement, through which we provide teaching, online training, outreach ideas, inspiration, creative resources, instruction videos and more!

We also organize concert tourssummer missions, ministry team tours, new year festivals, and train young people through our one year program in our different bases in Europe.

A brief history

Jesus Revolution was started in 1997 by Stephan & Anne Christiansen with a vision to make the Gospel available to the youth of Europe – and the World!
From then on, we have had evangelistic events and outreaches in over 900 cities in 35 nations.

We have organized “Summer Teams,” every summer in Europe since 1998 with a total participation of over 7000 young people from over 30 nations.
Through the years, the Gospel has been preached to hundreds of thousands of European youth, and many have been reached through media and TV-programs.
We have seen tens of thousands of young people have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Strategy

Strategic principles

Based on our years of ministry in Europe, we have developed a strategy that is founded on several key principles:

  • We serve national church movements around the world to help them implement national evangelism and discipleship strategies.
  • We serve and equip youth and leaders in local churches to implement local evangelism and discipleship strategies.
  • We believe that to reach the youth of the world you need to be in the world of the youth. We have therefore identified Schools - Streets and Screens as the primary “worlds” in which we should reach youth.
  • We are working towards a “cradle to college” discipleship strategy with several ministry partners.

How we serve the body of Christ

Through 20 years of ministry in Europe, Jesus Revolution has acquired invaluable know-how, insights and tools to reach the youth of the world with the gospel. God has called us to give away and transfer these tools and know-how to national church movements across the world.

We believe in training and sending the believers to reach the lost. We help national church movements launch and run Mission Training Schools to train the believers. To reach the lost we help launch and run School and Student ministry as well as larger evangelistic events.

PEF Partnership

The “Pentecostal European Fellowship” (PEF) is an umbrella organisation for national Church movements in Europe. The member movements of this fellowship represent a total of more than 4 million believers.

In many European Nations, independent and charismatic Churches have also become a part of PEF movements, partly because of religious laws in Europe, and partly because of a desire for greater unity and spiritual cover.

  • PEF has its headquarter in Brussels and helps represent its member Churches in the European Union.
  • At the PEF gathering in Stockholm in 2017 Jesus Revolution became an official support ministry with PEF, partnering with movements across Europe for maximum Kingdom impact.
