Tell others about Jesus like Count Zinzendorf did:

Though not all Christians are called to the foreign mission field,  we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

 

 

The Rich Young Ruler Who Said Yes

A little-known true story about what it really means to serve God.

Once in a while someone comes along who has a profound effect on the course of future history.  Count Zinzendorf was one of those remarkable people.  Born into nobility in 1700, he put aside a life of wealth, politics and privilege to follow God's call.  He established a refugee settlement for persecuted Christians. 

Worldwide Missions

 This remarkable community experienced a powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit which led them to a passionate concern for worldwide missions.  Under Zinzendorf's leadership they set the stage for the modern missionary movement as we know it today.

The Four Programs

Silverball(1) Prophet of the Heart

Follows the young Count during the early years and when he first allowed religious refugees from neighboring Moravia and Bohemia to settle on his lands, leading up to the Moravian Renewal of 1727.

Silverball(2) Count Without Borders

Profiles their pioneering mission movement that sent missionaries to lands as far apart as Greenland and South Africa.  These were the missionaries that would inspire later leaders such as William Carey. 

Silverball(3) New Heart, New World

The Controversial Count turns his attention to the American Colonies, and especially to the native Americans.  The Count himself visits America with much fanfare in 1742 and attempts to organize an ecumenical movement.

Silverball(4) The Pilgrim Comes Home

Controversy erupts in Germany, and Zinzendorf's movement experiences a period of self-correction.   _______________________________

Theologians, historians, and modern Moravians from around the world reflect on the impact of Zinzendorf's life and thought. ______________________________

This 4-part Documentary is one of the most inspiring Series we have ever seen.  600 Moravians in one village started the Modern Mission Movement (they influenced William Carey) by sending Missionaries to the Caribbean, Greenland, Africa, and the New World.

Every Pastor and every Congregation should see this Documentary!
