You probably know that everything is going “mobile” these days. How about your church?

Could you use a free app to spread the Gospel far and wide? Make a copy of this app and use it throughout your church. You will find a dramatic increase and your evangelistic impact!

This is a great conversation starter. Just encourage everyone in your church with a mobile device — which is pretty much everyone — to download a copy and go through
The John Challenge themselves. Then encourage them to take it to all of their friends, relatives, associates and neighbors who have not yet met Jesus.

Not everyone will take you up on the offer but many will. And the price is right! It’s free. No strings attached.

NOTE: You won’t find this app in any app store. It is only available here!

Some think print media is “old school” but it has its advantages! When you are reading a book you can read it at your pace. It speeds up and slows down automatically to meet your needs.

Many people appreciate The John Challenge in print because it gives them the capacity to think on their own speed and to make notes on the fly.

Get your copy today wherever fine books are sold online. Search for The John Challenge Gary V Carter.
