Gospel Festivals are huge Gospel advancing campaigns held throughout the world, with a strong focus on nations and people groups that are “unreached”. Crowds of 50,000 to 600,000 people regularly gather in a single service. In 2008 Peter Youngren and World Impact Ministries saw tremendous success in Pakistan, Northern Nigeria, Kenya and Indonesia. See photos and reports below.
Seminars for pastors and church leaders run concurrent with each Friendship Festival. The focus is on training pastors and leaders to advance the Gospel in their own country.
