20/20 Vision Partnership Campaign:
The name “20/20 Vision” is taken from both the year of completion as well as the goal described in the scripture reference, Romans 15:20–21, “Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand”— that all peoples would have perfect 20/20 vision in terms of their understanding of the gospel message presented to them through the media tools.
“To produce and distribute an indigenous evangelistic audio-visual tool for every one of the Least Evangelized Mega Peoples (L.E.M.P.) by the year 2020, so that all can clearly see and understand the gospel message and embrace it as their own.” Download the Latest 20/20 Vision List
As Christians we stand at a very important point in human history and the evangelization of the world. While we carefully select the most effective technologies for each context, there is an even larger movement toward integrating the technologies themselves. The “convergence” of television, satellite, mobile telecommunications, and the Internet is sparking a revolution in how we see and interact with our world. It launches the world into an unprecedented free-flow of information that will dwarf the effect experienced by the invention of the printing press! Almost overnight, the simplest evangelistic websites could have an international ministry. Those who have a presence on the Internet now, will be first in line to reap the rewards. All of this has brought the gospel closer than ever before to over a billion people. As Christians we stand at a very important point in human history and the evangelization of the world.
The apostle Paul’s ambition and devotion to God’s call to extend the kingdom of God ignited a passion in him that could not be quenched, a passion that drove him to the frontiers. Passion and determination are two keys to being an effective communicator: passion for the Lord and his heart to reach all peoples, and determination to keep pressing on despite obstacles. We must never give up until all peoples have heard! Media production can be relatively expensive and time consuming, but when the goal is clear, the creativity, energy and resourcefulness are released to get the job done effectively!
As communicators of the good news, we must constantly be seeking to utilize all forms of technology to ensure wider and more effective communication of our message worldwide. Communicators must work hard to choose the appropriate media to communicate a contextualized message for salvation, discipleship, and community transformation. All the passion and determination in the world still falls short unless our ministries are anointed, and only humility will generate the blessing of God. He wants our involvement, using all of our gifts, by all possible means, to bring all the nations the greatest story ever told. Following Paul’s example, let’s take the gospel to all peoples, discipling all nations.
Also, let’s take full advantage of all the multiplicity of media forms, ask God for new insight and creativity, and together with Him create new communication tools that will bring salvation and transformation to the unreached. God has millions of new ways to reach the peoples of this earth, and He will give them to us if we seek him earnestly. The apostle Paul’s words ring true for us today — “so that by all possible means, some might be saved” (1 Cor. 9:22).
In discipling all nations, and finishing the task of world evangelization, we desire to follow the admonitions of the apostle Paul: “It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. Rather, as it is written: ‘Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand’” (Rom. 15:20–21).
