The Gospel Story-arc Project
Hi, this is Dr. Randal Gilmore, co-founder of The Gospel Story-arc Project.
Several years ago, my wife, Dale, and I started The Gospel Story-arc Project to better share who Jesus is with people in Asia.
It wasn't long before we felt called to leave our church, where we had served as pastor and wife for 20 years, to focus on reaching Asians with the gospel.
But we soon discovered that many Asians didn't understand our message, especially when we shared in the same way that Christians usually share here in the West.
And that was so frustrating, depressing even.
We thought we had run up against an impenetrable wall. So many people had no prior knowledge of Christianity, and no connection to the language we Christians use to talk about Jesus and salvation.
And that's where The Gospel Story-arc Project comes in.
We discovered that by expanding our message about Jesus to include more of the larger story told in the Bible, and by paying attention to the dynamics of story-telling, Christianity suddenly made more sense to the people we were trying to reach.
Then we discovered how to pique interest in the gospel, using the same story-telling dynamics.
Since then, hundreds of Asians have heard the Gospel Story-arc presentation. And in response, many have professed faith in Jesus.
Now we want to share these things with you.
So that's why we've created a membership page on The Gospel Story-arc website.
But don't worry, we're not looking for hand-outs. We aim to earn your support by working hard to minister directly to Asians (and others), by delivering content you can use in your own study of Jesus' story as found in Scripture, and by equipping you to share.
After all, this is your story too!
