1 THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST GLOBAL PRAYER INITIATIVE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The film, The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, will convincingly portray the biblical account of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is such a way that billions of people will be exposed to and believe in the power of His resurrection in their own lives. How many people? I don t know the exact number, but it is in the hundreds of millions. Some prayer leaders are talking about 100 million people around the world praying together in unity. That will take very serious planning. This strategic planning document is more of a procedural plan than a precise set of goals and objectives. Any one in our team could come up with excellent and specific goals and objectives. However, by so doing, they would be only owned by us, while we need the involvement of many global leaders in the Body of Christ. The Global Prayer Initiative has the following goals: 1) To promote the film The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and to provide effective ways to disciple multi-millions of new Christians. 2) To create a communication channel to be used by the Kingdom of God. This will include other films, global and national prayer concerns, which seek united prayer efforts that will bring about revival. 3) To encourage spiritual unity in the global Body of Christ. Editorially, this document is a humble first draft sort of an overview. This document is written with wiggle room for changes and additions as revealed and directed by the Holy Spirit. ASSUMPTIONS AND PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY This section might be made available to the Executive Team only. 1. We must use the latest and best technologies available. Even during the next two years of production, one can expect new technologies that extend the reach of current Smart Phones, social media, and Internet

2 communications. One can expect better ways to use databases and written and verbal translation capacity. 2. We must give the project away to pastors and ministry leaders in every nation. Our ministry team s role is to cast the vision and empower others. This is more difficult for leaders with CEO type leadership styles than for those with facilitative leadership capacity. For the most part, we should not be the speakers. We should be choosing the ones who speak. This will markedly increase involvement. In other words, it would be better for the Pope to speak words of support for the film to the Catholic Church than any one of us. That does not mean that in these early days we should not speak. It means as the movement grows, we need to empower others who are key. 3. We must be more inclusive and less exclusive. When there are multiple ministries functioning in the same ministry sphere, we must include all of them. Coalition building will be more important than appointing the best-known, strongest leader or first volunteer. Too quickly appointing a wrong leader in a nation might setback TROJC and spiritual unity for years. We will want fewer staff connecting with leaders one on one, and more developing coalitions and task forces where we bring key ministries to come together to do better together than they can on their own. 4. We must spend significant time in these early days for the highest level of strategic planning. However, our plans must have wiggle room allowing other ministry leaders to make additions, changes and adjustments. Thus, developing their personal involvement and ownership in TROJC. We will need tens of thousands of Christian leaders to own the project. 5. We must be careful to involve all Christian branches of the Kingdom. Catholics, Protestants, Pentecostals, Evangelicals, etc. It would be best to be as centrist as possible initially. Then, we can allow ourselves to move out from the center of theology to include others. Thus, we will establish who we are theologically which allows a broad base of the Christian community to own TROJC. 6. We are a for-profit business! As such, we should always be looking at income streams and ways of making a profit on all of our efforts and various projects. The workman is worthy of his hire!! STRATEGIC PLANNING AREAS

3 1. We must develop a plan for unifying and mobilizing the Christian community in over 150 nations. 2. We must develop a plan for 100 million people praying for TROJC, their friends and family. 3. We must develop a plan to follow up with and disciple over 100 million new believers. STRATEGIC PLAN FOR UNITY Overview: Many nations are more advanced in this plan than the United States. The third world culture leaders tend to be fulfilled by serving as a small fish in a big pond rather than a big fish in a small pond. Mission organizations have already developed leadership and built coalitions. It would be appropriate to start by asking these mission organizations for their help. Billy Graham, Luis Palau, The Jesus Film Project and Rienhard Bonnke have already developed structures for their evangelistic campaigns. We can learn from them and utilize their experience. Let s plan a conference call with Tom Phillips, Executive VP with the Graham Association, Kevin Palau, son of Luis Palau, and Allen Beeber, Exec VP, Campus Crusade, and others. Questions to be answered: 1. What functions will be needed to promote unity and promote TROJC in that nation? a. Will we need a marketing and promotion team? b. Will we need a prayer chairperson(s)? c. Will we need a fund raising team? d. Will we need a PR team? e. Will we need a spokesperson team? f. Will we need an event team or COLA? g. What other functions will be needed? 2. Will we need both a national, state and city structure? How will that look? 3. Will there be the need to create many screens as the Jesus Film Project did?

4 Action Steps: 1. Create a task force to do the research and complete the strategic plan for unity. 2. The research would include: a. Study of countries where a spiritual unity coalition has already begun. b. Study of evangelism organizations, and the structure and functions they have developed. c. Study the kinds of staffing needed to maintain TROJC structures in over 150 nations. Identify organizations with staff that can be seconded to this unity effort. 3. Create clear and measurable goals that will accomplish the unity task, and then follow the plan making adjustments as needed. STRATEGIC PLAN FOR PRAYER Overview: The Bible speaks about the end times when the resurrected Lord returns in glory. The Bible says that will not happen until every person on the entire planet has had the opportunity to hear the message of The Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Bible also states, Every eye shall see His coming. Part of the Body of Christ s task is to prepare the Bride for the coming of the Bridegroom. Unity of the Body of Christ is essential. Communication, communication, and communication are the 3 steps that build unity. Prayer is the catalyst. To my knowledge, the closest the Kingdom of God has come to developing a global communication/prayer network is the International Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. It is a coalition of multiple prayer networks loosely connected without a central structure. Businessman Graham Spangenbergand, and his wife Isabel, started a prayer movement in South Africa which bridged into several nations using his connections in the Christian business world. Operation World has come alongside of them and has collaborated together with them. World spiritual unity has had several competing startup efforts done by both WEC and WEA. This competitive effort has left a void in developing strong global Christian leadership.

5 Questions to use in planning: Ideas: 1. Research the size of communication needed. a. How many nations have smart phones? How many smart phones might be in use by 2017? b. Name the top nations that have organized prayer efforts. It might be equally important to identify media markets or major cities. c. Identify the leaders and their contact information. These could be a potential list of seconded personnel for us. d. Research language groups and tools that can be used to communicate. e. Identify all Christian media globally. 2. Create a coalition of 100+ of the world s prayer leaders. John Robb, the World Prayer Council, would be helpful here. 3. Write a strategic plan for developing a global communication ministry. a. Include staff needed to sustain this communication/prayer effort. b. Include the possible development of city rallies that could be called Resurrection Power Rallies in major cities. 1) Explore the use of APPs. 2) Explore the use of a hub where prayer requests and their prayer networks might connect. 3) Explore the using of all video content. 4) Explore the use of automatic language translation equipment. Action Steps: 1) Form a coalition of prayer leaders (50-100) from around the world. 2) Form a task force composed of all those who have created an Internet tool. 3) Step up prayer chairpersons (two or more) in all of the major cities and media markets of the world.

6 STRATEGIC PLAN FOR DISCIPLESHIP Overview: Perhaps the most difficult task of all will be to provide discipleship materials for 100 million new Christians together with meaningful and life-changing personal follow up. It is my opinion that this has been the weak point in evangelism crusades of the past. This is true likely because it takes the involvement of millions of people, and tens of thousands of churches along with the creation of new churches. It will likely take an apostolic push to plant new kinds of churches! The discipleship task will be complicated because of a large variety of languages and cultures. Printed material will be costly, and yet every new Christian should minimally have a copy of the Bible or the Gospel of John. Questions to be asked: 1) How many languages will need to be covered? Will current Internet translation programs be adequate? 2) How can we engage present Christians and churches in preparation and involvement in discipling the new believers? 3) Can an APP be used for prayer, and later converted to discipleship materials, hard copy or digital? Action Steps: 1) Ask all groups that provide discipleship, national and international, to come together in a coalition to discuss and agree upon how this could be done. 2) Ask Tom Phillips, Executive VP for the Billy Graham Association, to co-chair this coalition.
