A video produced by a team at Ron Hutchcraft Ministries (RHM) has been viewed on YouTube.com more than 1.7 million times over the past year and has inspired more than 60,000 people to pray for a personal relationship with God and to live for Christ.
The video titled “Does God Care About Me?” was posted last year in March by the Doug and Jon Show and presents the Gospel in less than three minutes.
At the end of the presentation, viewers are invited to pray the Sinner’s Prayer and to share whether or not they did so by clicking on one of two links. Those who click on the “Yes, I Prayed” link are directed to a second video, titled “What Do I Do Now?” Those who click on the “Not Now” link are directed to another video, titled “What’s Next?” Both follow-up videos feature Jon Taylor and RHM Executive Director & Chief Creative Officer Doug Hutchcraft, who offer guidance to the viewers.
“It's one of the clearest, most-watched Gospel presentations on the Internet,” exclaimed RHM President Ron Hutchcraft.
After 12 months on YouTube, the video surpassed 1.5 million views from 210 countries, and more than 40,000 reported having prayed the Sinner’s Prayer at the end.
Over the past two months, nearly 300,000 more viewed the video and more than 20,000 prayed the Sinner’s Prayer.
“YouTube is a massive mission field, where literally millions of teenagers hang out every day,” noted Hutchcraft.
“As the Good News of Jesus ‘goes viral’ through YouTube, lives … are being transformed,” he added.
