Leading The Way Founder and President Dr Michael Youssef shared an uncompromising Gospel message as thousands flocked to the Hope Ireland celebration events in Dublin and Belfast September 1st and 3rd. After a year of preparation with many different churches it’s hoped the impact of these outreach events will spark a movement of evangelism in Ireland.
Script or Transcript (English/Spanish):
More than 3,000 people flocked to hear well known preacher Dr Michael Youssef share a Gospel message during a series of celebration events called Hope Ireland.
And 110 people responded to his invitation to turn their lives to Jesus Christ during both evenings in Dublin and Belfast.
Dr Youssef explains why it was so vital to bring an uncompromising simple message of Gospel hope to the people of Ireland at this time:
We need what I call pure apologetics just letting the Bible speak for itself. And like Martyn Luther said ‘The word of God is like a lion, you cannot defend the lion, let the lion speak. And so that’s really that’s the message I’m bringing to Ireland that Chris and Christ alone can give you hope, not only in this life but for all of eternity.
He concluded by sharing his hopes for the long-term impact of this outreach:
I want people to join the church when they come to Christ. But then the movement continues. So those people who are trained to share Christ are going to keep on witnessing and the prayer is in 10-15 years if the Lord doesn’t return people will be sharing their faith and they’ll ignite a Holy Spirit movement in Dublin, in Belfast until whenever God calls us.
And it’s hoped the impact will be even more far-reaching globally as the the Hope Ireland Celebrations in Dublin and Belfast were also broadcast through Leading the Way’s television ministry to millions of homes around the world.
