Animated video outreach ministry, The Bible Project, has been successfully reaching millions of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the support of crowdfunding and its promotion on YouTube.
The outreach tool was started by long-time friends Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins five years ago after they met at Bible College in Oregon.
The pair told The Christian Post they wanted to help people read through Scripture but also avoid some of the pitfalls that limited people’s understanding the Bible.
Combining Mr Mackie’s doctorate in theology with Mr Collins’ passion for visual story-telling, they chose to create teaching videos and put them online for free.
The Bible Project was an instant success with the ministry now claiming more than 100,000 financial supporters.
The project has since produced over 130 videos and 200 podcasts, accumulating 125 million views across all media channels in more than 200 countries.
