Did you know that in 2019, the average person spent nearly seven hours a week watching online videos? This was a 59% increase from 2016. When it comes to daily use, the global average is about 84 minutes. China and Sweden led the way with about 103 minutes.
YouTube users upload more than 500 hours of video every minute—that works out to about 720,000 hours of new content a day! And this content is watched by the platform’s 30 million daily visitors.
It would be difficult to overestimate the impact of video right now. Jesus Film Project® has long believed that film is one of the most powerful ways for people all over the globe to see and experience the gospel in their own heart language.
Here’s how you can help.
1. Share videos on your social media platformsWe have all kinds of videos available. You’ll find biblical stories like “JESUS” and the “Gospel of John,” but you’ll also discover inspiring short films, children’s videos, and teachings—all free to watch, and typically available in many different languages. You will definitely find something that speaks to you. Share one of these videos on your favorite platform and get a conversation going. And don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel to see the newest uploads from JFP.
2. Download and share the Jesus Film Project® appThe Jesus Film Project app is free for Apple and Android and features a full digital library of more than 200 full-length movies, miniseries, and short films. This is a fantastic resource for sharing the gospel, and getting it into the hands of others will have a huge impact!
We’re excited about the impact that we could make together as we share Christ-centered media with the world. More than 490 million people have already come to Jesus after their exposure to these films, and we can’t wait for more lives to encounter the gospel.
