What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Twenty20 Faith is uniquely positioned to bring clarity and hope to hundreds of thousands of people around the world enduring through life's most common questions and challenges related to faith and purpose. Life's hardships, challenges and complexities are some of the most common factors pulling many away from a strong and vibrant personal relationship with God through Christ, yet that strong, personal relationship with God is the very source of strength and wisdom needed to get through to victory. Our mission is to help bring lasting clarity and life-long growth to Christians - particularly those new in faith - in their walk with God for their entire lifetime.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to help those who are contemplating the Christian faith, or those who have recently made that commitment, to engage our program in their native language to bring into focus practical life applications of a strong Christian faith working in harmony with unconditionally loving our fellow humanity over the course of a lifetime. Twenty20 Faith has four pillars to its mission, each reflecting our intended outcomes:

1. Helping those contemplating the Christian faith to make an informed and confident decision to commit to Christ when they are ready. (fully operational)
2. Helping those who have decided for Christ to grow in their faith through our foundation-building devotional program. (fully operational)
3. Helping Christians who engage our program to connect with others in their area through local fellowships, ministries and churches. (pilot initiative underway as of Dec. 2020)
4. Provide Christians with high quality education and training to become effective leaders in life and ministry. (initial planning to begin late 2021)

COMMUNITY:
Partner with the highest quality ubiquitous digital communities and platforms to maximize reach, outcomes and impact around the world.

CONTENT:
License the highest quality content for the audiences we serve, and leverage our network of professional translators to maximize availability to deploy in as many languages as possible globally, while also prioritizing digital over traditional mediums. Lastly, provide this content at no cost to those we minister to.

ENGAGEMENT:
Ensure effective engagement mechanisms are in place across the various communities and at proper points in the content, allowing those engaging with our content to also engage Twenty20 Faith directly for additional ministry and follow-up, and ensure operations supports 1x1 engagement at scale and volume.

Twenty20 Faith has licensed top rated content targeted toward those who are new in their Christian faith, and uses our global network of translators (independent and organizations) to professionally translate and deploy that content in digital form to various regions of the world.

Today, our full program is available in 33 languages, and our goal is to eventually support 65 languages world-wide.

Our partnership with YouVersion has afforded us a powerful and trusted platform with an extended global reach and support of many languages worldwide.

Our internal digital platforms - working in concert with YouVersion and other platforms - assemble a powerful global digital ecosystem allowing us to engage and minister quickly and effectively on a global level.

We maintain very high priority to measuring impacts and results in all we do.

Through 2020, the impact our ministry has had world-wide is:

1. Readership of more than 1.75 Million across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.
2. Completion rate on that readership is 62%
3. User ratings of our devotional content is 4.78 / 5.00 (450,000 reviews)
4. More than 5,400 people have given their life to Christ.

We believe this is just the beginning. Our focus on expansion includes:

1. Growing our global devotional program language support from 33 languages to 65.
2. Developing a more personalized outreach through our digital platforms to those asking for specific guidance in their life and/or walk with God. (in 1x1 or small group settings)
3. Begin preliminary planning activities around a multi-lingual education and training solution for those looking to develop and grow life, ministry and leadership skills.
