"35 Years of the Jesus Film has Changed Millions of Lives"

"Barry Fiess, spokesman for the Jesus Film Project, said a church-planting ministry sponsored by the Jesus Film Project has recorded more than 57,000 conversions and launched 4,823 churches or small groups as a result of showing the film more 1.2 million times in one year.
Christ for All Peoples is one of the many ministries that has used the film for outreach. Its president, Phil Cohn, told WND in an interview that “The Jesus Film” is an effective way to do outreach because it overcomes language barriers.
“How many people carry parallel Bibles with them that have dozens of languages in them? It’s too difficult to do that. It’s going to be easier to share the Gospel with someone if they’re going to watch a movie,” Cohn said.
Cohn’s work focuses on unreached populations overseas, but his ministry also reaches out to the many immigrant communities in the United States.
