Leading The Way: "Revival in Indonesia" Is Just the Beginning

Leading The Way Indonesia Revival worshipThousands of Indonesians gathered last month in Istora Stadium in Jakarta for three nights of praise, worship, and teaching from Dr. Michael Youssef, who shared about Jesus Christ, "The Pearl of Great Price," and how salvation in Christ surpasses the value of any earthly treasure.

Moreover, around 1,000 came forward to accept Christ over the three nights of "Leading The Way to Revival in Indonesia." Dr. Youssef's messages also reached many more millions of homes across Indonesia and around the world via live broadcasts on eight satellite networks and online streaming.

"There are so many who need to continue to hear the Gospel, and that is why this revival is just the beginning of the work God is going to do through Leading The Way in Indonesia," commented Dr. Youssef, who is the Founder and President of the worldwide ministry Leading The Way and a member of the NRB Board of Directors.

"Leading The Way will continue to expand our Gospel work in Indonesia through radio, television, THE KINGDOM SAT and solar-powered Navigators to reach the lost and equip even more believers to passionately proclaim the uncompromising Truth of Christ," he added.

On May 1, Leading The Way's 24/7 satellite television channel, THE KINGDOM SAT, began to broadcast on the popular Palapa D satellite, which reaches all of Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim nation.

Now, for the first time in history, the Indonesian people have free-to-air television access via satellite to more than 50 evangelical preachers, all handpicked by Leading The Way for their commitment to sound biblical teaching.
