SPRINGFIELD, Missouri— Global University, an accredited distance education university of the Assemblies of God, has officially launched an organizational-wide Evangelism Fall Fund Drive.
This fundraising campaign seeks to raise funds to print evangelism materials at a low cost to reach the lost. According to Tim Teague, Dean for Global University’s School for Evangelism and Discipleship, there is a tremendous need in the world to print evangelism materials at low cost. “We need a new emphasis on evangelism. Our desire is to place proven soul winning materials into the hands of lost people through our worldwide network,” said Teague. “Our Christian faith is under attack like never before by so many varying worldviews. We need to answer by proclaiming the simple truth of the Gospel in word and deed.”
According to Global University’s President Dr. Gary Seevers, the school is requesting support from students, alumni and friends of the university. “We are really excited about this campaign because it is at the heart of what we do here at Global University. Reaching the lost is the first step to train the found,” said Seevers.
