Naperville, IL (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Syndicated radio host Wayne Shepherd announces the achievements of the ministry group "Most Important Story" as they reach milestones in print distribution, smart phone apps, the launch of the Go Kit!, and now speculation of potential mergers with major ministry partners.
"Most Important Story" is a suite of evangelism resources developed by Dr. David Hunt, owner of Envoy House Publishers, who create and distribute the MIS family of material.
"David and I have been friends for many years and have traveled the world together in a ministry context. I have seen firsthand the effectiveness of these resources and am pleased to have played a small part in David and his team reaching their goals," says Shepherd. Earlier this week Shepherd broadcast his interview with Hunt for Shepherd's "First Person" radio program.
The 32-page "Most Important Story" booklet has recently crossed the mark of 91 million copies distributed to children around the world in 118 languages. The booklet was converted into a smart phone app with voices, narration and music and tells the same story of Jesus but in the digital arena. The app is now in English, Spanish, Arabic and Farsi languages, which completes the initial launch. The print and app combine into the Go Kit! for short term missions and children ministry workers who use a tiny projector and display the app on a big screen to a group and then distribute the print books to the onlookers, creating a never seen before experience in evangelism. After months of R&D, the Go Kit! is now launched. These milestones have led Hunt to prayerfully seek the next step for the materials.
The outcome is that this powerhouse of evangelism assets could potentially now be combined with a major partner.
Hunt clarifies, “It will look less like a merger and more like a the greatest expansion of the brand and its distribution since its inception. Having achieved the milestones in print to the only apps like this out there -- I am looking for the right person and company/ministry to take these materials exponentially further than we have done. We are looking to partner with someone who has a heart for the children of the world and are committed to evangelism and discipleship using Scripture."
In addition to the booklets, apps and Go Kit!, the suite of materials also includes a one-of-a-kind New Testament, an illustrated children's Bible, coloring and activity books which allow a child to "color their way through the Bible" and the Gospel of John. All materials are in multiple languages. To help ministries this summer, Hunt is offering a discount on the flagship MIS booklets.
Shepherd summarizes, “Whether a merger or an outright acquisition, The Most Important Story will go on to impact even more children the world over than ever before. David often quotes Ephesians 3:7, 'By God's grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving Him by spreading this Good News.'"
