Dear Friend,

The purpose of the Gospel Heritage Endowment is to receive finances and gifts in kind (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, etc.) and professionally manage these funds using the annual proceeds for the advancement of the Gospel.

Each year one or several distributions will be awarded from the Endowment to one or several ministries that are already doing something significant to advance the Gospel in a needy part of the world. The gifts will grow in size as the Endowment continues to increase.

The recipients will also receive a Book of Testimonies, which will include your personal story of what salvation through Jesus Christ has meant to you. The Book of Testimonies will glorify what Jesus has done. Your testimony will motivate future generations.

You can be a part of the Gospel Heritage Endowment and make your legacy be that of a Gospel advancer. Give now while you are alive, and include the Gospel Heritage Endowment in your last will and testament. Thank you for making the cause of world missions of supreme importance to you, and for generations of believers to come.

Yours for the Gospel,

Peter Youngren

Founder & president

Why the Gospel?

“I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…” Romans 1:16. The Good News is the power of God by which we are saved. Nothing is as precious as the Gospel. Through what Jesus did on the cross we are forgiven, made righteous, protected and blessed; spirit, soul and body. Because of the Gospel we have eternal life.

Why Until Everyone Has Heard?

“Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature” Mark 16:15-16. “Why should anyone hear the Gospel twice before everyone has heard it once” – Oswald J. Smith. How can we, who have been blessed with the untold riches of Christ, keep this Good News to ourselves? We can not turn a blind eye to the plight of those who have never had the opportunity to hear of Jesus. Our responsibility is to fulfill the Great Commission given to us by Jesus Himself, and to take His Gospel to every person.

Why a Spiritual Heritage?

“Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, for they are the rejoicing of my heart” Psalm 119:11. “Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened” – Billy Graham. Your personal testimony is of great value. You leave behind a spiritual heritage for your children and grandchildren through your life. Your heritage will inspire and encourage future generations to do even greater exploits for God.

Why the Gospel Heritage Endowment?

”…the things that you have heard… commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” 2 Timothy 2:2. “If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him” – C.T. Studd. The Gospel Heritage Endowment is a vehicle to advance the Gospel to the ends of the earth until everyone has heard. Our approach is unique. When the annual distribution for missions is made from the funds available through the Gospel Heritage Endowment, each recipient will receive a copy of your personal testimony. They will see that your gift has been a part of making the endowment possible and they will know what Jesus did for you and how it caused you to give of your finances.
