Global Disciples’ Online Gospel Ministry in Myanmar Producing New Believers

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a Global Disciples ministry team in Myanmar to get creative with their Gospel outreach – and they are seeing the Holy Spirit move.

Buddhism is the majority religion in Myanmar and religious extremists want to keep it that way. Only six percent of the population follows Jesus.

Global Disciples’ Barbara Gerhart says one of their programs in Myanmar was finishing another round of discipleship training when the coronavirus started making headlines. This drastically changed their ministry plans.

“Usually for outreach, the team would go out to a community,” Gerhart says. “They would [go] door-to-door [and] they would strike up conversations in the marketplace. But this group realized they weren’t going to be able to do that.”

The discipleship team of mostly young people decided if they can’t share their faith in-person, they were going to take their outreach to the internet. They started talking about Jesus and the Gospel via social media and other online outlets.
