So That the World May Know Jesus

When Eddie Fox summarized his ministry and call, he spoke with clarity: It’s about Christ. Eddie’s ministry was wholistic, for all people, around the world.

As a long-time ally, The Foundation for Evangelism knows that Eddie always asked what the local church and community needed so that they might invite others to follow Christ. Continuing in that model, we are excited to announce a new global grant program funded by the Dr. H. Eddie and Mary Nell Fox Endowment for Evangelism, “So That the World Might Know Jesus.”

These grants equip evangelistic, global Wesleyan-tradition leaders for the ever-changing landscape of Christian leadership and invitation, opening the way for Christ to transform hearts and minds.

Using the Fox legacy as a template to engage globally, the Foundation will seek out places where the Holy Spirit is at work. Then, through building partnerships with indigenous evangelists and organizations, the grants will be implemented to provide the resources needed on the ground to advance the faith movement.

Inaugural Grant Honors Fox Legacy

Estonia has a very secular culture and is ranked as one of the most unreligious countries in Europe. So, when The Foundation for Evangelism asked The Estonian Methodist Church what they needed to invite and nurture new disciples of Jesus, they said that ministry with children and young people is crucial.

21% of the Estonian population are children and young people ages 7-27.
Only about 8 young people out of 1,000 interact with a church – less than 1%.

This grant impacts both Estonian-speaking and Russian-speaking churches with 5 new youth ministry locations, someone from every church in youth leader training, and adding small groups where unchurched young people are more likely to engage.

You can help strengthen the witness and ministry of the Estonian Methodist Church and Christians worldwide – Give to the Fox Endowment today.

Rooted in scripture and the knowledge that is in the Bible, we find the source of our salvation

Equipping Indigenous Leaders

Evangelism is invitational and requires relationships. Eddie modeled for us that fruitful  evangelists assess the situation, find what is impeding the Holy Spirit’s work, and address those issues to empower themselves and others to share the Good News.

Wesleyan
