New Evangelism Effort to Love Every Person in America



“Every person in the U.S. should have the opportunity to experience the love of Christ through at least one person,” says Dr. Paul Cedar, chairman of the Mission America Coalition (MAC). “This will never happen without the authentic move of the Holy Spirit, but why couldn’t it happen? It is time to share Christ’s love!”


Cedar was referring to the launch of a national campaign sponsored by MAC and the U.S. Lausanne Committee to draw ministries, churches, whole denominations, and individual Christians to show the love of Christ to every person in America by the end of the decade. LOVE2020 was announced at the MAC annual leadership consultation in Denver during the last week of October 2012.


He describes Love2020 as a grassroots movement of Christians adopting a “prayer-care-share lifestyle.” This lifestyle involves praying for those who do not know Jesus, showing them love in tangible ways through acts of kindness and meeting needs, and sharing the gospel with them. “The Holy Spirit works in a heart that has been prayed for, cared for, and shared with,” says Susan Brill, MAC’s director of communications.


Cedar points out, “If only ten percent of professing Christians in the U.S. would adopt and put in practice the simple, yet powerful, prayer-care-share lifestyle, this vision and mission could be fulfilled. . . . We are not asking you to become involved in another short-term program,” Cedar emphasizes. “We believe it is time for us to change our long-term lifestyles by becoming praying, caring, and sharing followers of Jesus.”


The initiative is unprecedented for MAC, whose 500 partners and members come from more than 85 denominations, every size of ministry and church, and many individuals (missionamerica.org).

Mission America has created a new website to support the initiative, Love2020.org. The site hosts stories and video clips about efforts underway around the country. It also allows participants to submit stories of God’s work through their own prayer-care-share lifestyles. MAC will help track commitments to Christ and follow up with new believers and encourage their involvement in a local church.
