Women for JESUS is a ministry of Jesus Film Project® and led by missionary staff of Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ International) and gifted volunteers. We are committed to working together with the body of Christ to give the hope of Jesus to women and children of the world.
In July 2005, at a Jesus Film Project women's gathering in Asheville, North Carolina, plans were unveiled for an adaptation of the classic film JESUS that would bring the message of salvation, hope and dignity to millions of women worldwide. During this gathering, a story about international women and the oppression they face in their daily lives was shared that touched the heart of each woman attending. We learned that many women around the world, clinging to their feminine dignity, were wearing a touch of pink on their lips, nails or clothing as a quiet statement of protest. You'll notice touches of pink throughout this site as a reminder of the unrest in the hearts of millions of oppressed women around the world who need to hear of the unfailing, unconditional love of the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.
In 2006, Women for JESUS was launched as a resource for women whose desire is Praying with Passion and Giving with Purpose. Opportunities for both prayer and giving were unveiled to support the global efforts of Jesus Film Project as they released a new film created for the women of the world, Magdalena. In addition to providing opportunities for women to invest financially in the translation and distribution of this movie, a prayer movement was birthed to undergird this important work.
In 2012, the Lord put it upon the hearts of the Women for JESUS leadership team to expand our reach through the internet. With technology at our fingertips, equipping women to build God's kingdom through a mobile-friendly, easy to share website will fuel what's already in place—a global network of women working together to provide the gospel to women and children in their heart language through film.
We hope you'll take time to explore this site and return again and again! Many exciting new opportunities await us—Together, We Can Give Them Jesus!
