You are invited to help change the world by combining your voice with the power of social media and the great news of who Jesus is with #ShareJesus.

I believe the Holy Spirit is going to do amazing things through #ShareJesus this year and I want to invite you to help make this happen. 

God is moving in powerful ways. What we need to do is learn to sense where the Holy Spirit is moving and put our energies and efforts behind this.

The secret to the success of ShareJesus has been coming along side people like YOU. 

Our mission is to help you encounter Jesus and to share Jesus with others. As we get ready to launch our Advent and Lenten campaigns we want to say thanks for being a part of the big things God has done through #ShareJesus. Coming together we've reached millions of people with the good news through social media, how awesome is that?

Today, I again want to invite you to be a part of the big things God will do through #ShareJesus this year. I believe this year's project is both the most exciting direction we have taken with #ShareJesus and the most ambitious.

I am excited to share with you what we’ve have planned for Advent and Lent. 

Advent will be an Advent like nun-other. The Advent campaign will build on what we’ve done with #NunWeek and feature amazing religious sisters throughout Advent. I believe that the witness these amazing women give to the Gospel is contagious, beautiful, and will change you in an entirely new way this Advent. 

In Lent, we want to help give you a clear picture of Jesus so we will be walking through the Gospel of Mark. You’ll get to journey with Jesus through the eyes of Mark and take an in depth look at Jesus’s life in a new way. We are excited to be able to help bring the Gospel to life in a new way through social media.

If you are new to #ShareJesus here's our Lent playlist from last year for some examples (Click on the Hamburger Menu on the Top Left to see more videos).

As we continue to grow, we continue to increase the production value. This means that this year we will be filming all our speakers with our awesome film crew but this increases our budget as it necessitates both travel for our videographers and some of the speakers. I love launching this program with our Kickstarter campaign because it reminds me it’s about Jesus and it’s about you. 

HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS

Only your support brings this project to life. Your support enables:

  • Video production costs 
  • Post-Production Editing 
  • Professionally created Captions 
  • Administrative costs: Website, Graphic Design and Maintenance
  • Advertising on Social Media (Highly effective return on investment: typical costs are less than $0.001 a video view when we promote videos on Facebook.) 
  • Travel costs as needed to film speakers

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

Join us. Be a part of the #ShareJesus project by:

1. Prayer. Please pray for the success of this project. This project is about spreading the good news. Nothing is more vital in evangelization than prayer support.

2. Give. Please consider making a financial gift today. Our goal of $27,000 is the minimum of what it will take to make this project a reality. This means if we don't raise $27,000 no one gets charged and the project doesn't happen. 

Our stretch goal is $32,000 (an additional $5,000 over the minimum goal). This extra $5,000 will go towards two things: Travel costs to be able to film more nuns and speakers and launching a new Podcast that offers both daily audio reflections on the daily Mass readings and a daily best of #ShareJesus, which presents an audio version of some of our best #ShareJesus videos. The goal would be to release 14 episodes per week, a daily reflection for each day and a best of #ShareJesus. The more that is raised through this campaingn, the more people we can reach through #ShareJesus. 

We make sure the money we raise has a high return on your investment. 

3. Share. Share this project with your friends. If you believe in #ShareJesus ask your friends to get on board as well. 

Change the world with us. #ShareJesus. We simply can’t make this ministry and this program grow without your support.

Risks and challenges

We've learned a lot these past three years from doing #ShareJesus and are ready for what the new venture entails!

We are confident that #ShareJesus 2018 will happen by the grace of God and because of people like YOU that make up this amazing movement.

We are excited to see what God is going to do.
