Blown Away by Our Supporters

In the month leading up to Easter, supporters of “The JESUS Film” continued to grow, expanding the number of people we were able to reach with messages from the film. Surprisingly, our social media reach from just one of our Facebook posts spread into the millions.

It was because of the hundreds of thousands who “liked” the post, commented on it and shared it that more than three million saw those interactions, many of whom liked, commented and shared as well. And that was just one of our posts.

News of “The JESUS Film” Reaches Hundreds of Thousands

Last week marked a new beginning for “The JESUS Film.” The 35th Anniversary Edition was released on Blu-ray and DVD, giving people everywhere the chance to experience the story of Jesus’ birth, ministry, death and resurrection like never before. It also was our chance to try out a powerful method for amplifying the reach of this great news.

THE MESSAGE WAS MULTIPLIED.

Thanks to our supporters who joined us on Thunderclap, we were able to get the word out to well over 163,000 people simultaneously on Friday around 5:00 pm. EDT. We are thrilled to know that many people were able to learn about the film, possibly for the first time. And we couldn’t have done it without our supporters.

It’s true. For Thunderclap to post our supporters’ messages about “The JESUS Film”  to their connections on Facebook and Twitter, we had to first reach the goal of getting at least 100 supporters leading up to Friday afternoon. Thankfully, we surpassed our goal, coming in at 110 supporters for the Thunderclap. And because we did, our reach was multiplied, and we give thanks to God for that.

If you were one of the many who participated in the Thunderclap, thank you. We are so grateful for your support.
