Campus Crusade for Christ International (CCCI) is a network of 70 different Crusade organizations, with over 24,000 workers in more than 190 countries. CCCI has a mission to see that every person in the world has an opportunity to hear the Gospel of Christ at least once. One of their primary tools for fulfilling this mission is the JESUS film.
In the mid 1990s, the president of The JESUS Film Project found out, after meeting with Faith Comes By Hearing, that many of the people coming to Christ as a result of the film were illiterate. This made discipleship difficult, and he asked Faith Comes By Hearing to consider helping.
Two rounds of test projects were completed to see if Faith Comes By Hearing could provide a successful follow-up system to the film. After 4,400 showings of the film in 10 countries and 26 languages, the results clearly showed that using the Audio Drama New Testament as a follow up to the JESUS film increases long-term commitment and discipleship, with new churches being planted.
The JESUS film is available in 1,030 languages. Time magazine reports that four billion people have seen the film. Currently, it is being used in 190 countries with about 200,000 showings every year. Their goal in partnership with Faith Comes By Hearing is for two million New Life listening groups to begin over the next 10 years, as the follow up to each showing of the JESUS film.
