Leading The Way to Hold Revival Event in Indonesia

Dr. MichaelYoussefLeading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef is preparing to host a large three-day revival and outreach event in Indonesia with the help of hundreds of local volunteers and prayer intercessors.

According to the ministry, more than 500 churches have been contacted to date and the local team has another 2,000 to contact. In addition, more than 50,000 flyers have been distributed.

"Many have watched the TV advertisements and there has been good print media coverage," reported the ministry earlier this month. "Many are asking about Dr. Youssef and his ministry and excitement [is] growing. This is encouraging for the team."

Presently, Leading The Way (Dia Buka Jalan) is broadcasting its programs to Indonesia through two television channels (one satellite and one cable) and more than 40 FM and AM radio stations. Within the next month, the ministry plans to launch its 24/7 satellite television channel in Indonesia to reach an even wider audience there.

The launch of The Kingdom Sat is scheduled to take place ahead of the upcoming revival event in Jakarta's Isotora Senayan (Indoor Stadium).

When asked about the timing of the May 23-25 event, Organizing Chair Dr. Nus Reimas said, "[W]e waited until now to do it because we waited for the Lord's timing. The door opened in Indonesia and the Lord has prepared us to walk through the open door."

Dr. Reimas also noted how Dr. Youssef's Middle Eastern background and the Arabic flavor of the event will challenge Indonesian thinking.

"In Indonesia, Arabic tends to only be associated with one religion, not Christianity," he explained.

Joining Dr. Youssef on stage next month will be popular Arabic Gospel singer Nagieb Labib from Egypt and Indonesian singer Ruth Sahanaya.

On April 11, the ministry said the Jakarta police permit had been received and that they were praying for the final step in the permission process to be completed soon – when the Ministry of Religion gives their approval for Dr. Youssef to speak.

"Please pray churches would reach out beyond their church walls to invite their neighbors, co-workers and friends who are not Christians to the event," expressed the ministry.
