The mission of the Josh McDowell Ministry is:
To serve others until the whole world hears…
- that Jesus is God,
- that the Bible is true,
- that God is passionate about a relationship with each person,
- that the Christian faith is relevant, reliable and relational.
For over 50 years, the Josh McDowell Ministry, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ, International, has focused on serving and equipping churches, pastors, families and people everywhere in raising generations of purpose-driven Christians who know what they believe, why it is true, and how to live out their Christian faith.
Through the production of live events, ministry resources, electronic media and training, the Josh McDowell Ministry seeks to share the essentials of the Christian faith in everyday language so that the global church and individuals of all ages are prepared for the life of faith and the work of ministry.
As an agnostic college student, Josh McDowell believed that Christianity was worthless. But a group of Christians challenged him to examine the claims of Christianity on an intellectual basis. Instead of succeeding in discrediting the truth of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling historical evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. As a result, Josh accepted Christ as his personal Savior and Lord, and he found his life changed through God’s love and grace.
