MEDIA ADVISORY, Nov. 30, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- More than two billion people worldwide have never had the chance to hear about Jesus. How can Christians in North America respond to this urgent need? The new president of Reach Beyond, Steve Harling, has vowed to focus closely on bringing the gospel to all unreached people.
"I am looking forward to inspiring and leading a new generation of missionaries," said Harling. "We can fulfill the Great Commission in this generation," referring to Christ's call to bring His message to all people. "And mobilizing millennial is the key to seeing this happen."
"Today, missionary resources are heavily concentrated on the 'reached,'" said Harling. "If we are to fulfill the Great Commission, we will need a fresh unleashing of entrepreneurial pioneers to reach the billions who still have not heard the good news. I want to fulfill Christ's admonition to spread His message throughout the world. We can do it in our lifetime."
On November 16th, in Colorado Springs, Colo. Harling was officially inaugurated as the new president of Reach Beyond and took charge of the evangelical media and medical ministry with operations on five continents. Harling was formerly the senior pastor of Foothills Community Church in Arvada, Colo.
Harling brings a passion for reaching the unreached to his position, and has committed the ministry of Reach Beyond to helping fulfill the Great Commission. Harling said he is looking forward to leading Reach Beyond in the effort to fulfill its enormous potential. "Reach Beyond's unique approach of combining medical care with media ministries has touched the hearts of thousands who had never before heard the Word of the Lord, and I am excited to build upon that tradition."
