OUR STORY IS ONE OF ADVENTURE AND HOPE
In May 1999 an adventure began: the formation of a new and exciting ministry that would reach people in Ireland with the good news of Jesus. Today Steven Halliday and Mitch lead an ever-growing team that reaches thousands of people every year with the gospel.
Crown Jesus Ministries has a passionate desire to see people come into a relationship with Jesus. With passion and enthusiasm, the Crown Jesus team work together to spread the gospel and help further God's Kingdom in Ireland.
The ministry longs to see revival in Ireland and the inspiration that drives the team is a God-given vision:
'To see the people of Ireland CROWN JESUS Lord of their lives'
In May 2019 Crown Jesus celebrated 20 years in ministry and pledged to remain faithful to our call to reach all of Ireland. This developed into a mandate for the next decade;
We choose to go
By the end of the decade we choose to go into all 32 counties of Ireland and ensure everyone has the opportunity to receive and respond to the transforming message of Jesus Christ and the hope He brings.
We choose to go, not because it is easy but because it is hard. The goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to achieve.
We choose to go and we want you to partner with us on this adventure because together we are stronger. Join us as we launch into this new season; there are communities to reach, people to rescue and together we will make a difference for the glory of God’s kingdom.
We choose to go because Jesus has given us the power, authority and commission to go. Everyone in Ireland needs a chance to respond to the gospel. This will be the most challenging, dangerous and greatest adventure on which we have ever embarked. It must be done and with your help it will be done before the end of this decade.
(Inspired by J F Kennedy’s moon speech in 1962.)
The ministry will reach out to church leaders / fellow evangelists and collaborate towards building networks across the island. Tactically working county by county but also being receptive to the dynamic tactics of Spirit-led moments, rhythms and opportunities that open up. These tactics include the possibilities of planting mission centres and churches.
