It is amazing to consider the millions of lives that have been transformed through the ministry of Living on the Edge over the last 20 years. We celebrate what God has done!

Together, we are on mission to help Christians live like Christians at home, work, and school in order to transform families, churches, and communities for the common good and the glory of God. You will read a few stories that reflect this type of transformation in the following pages. Each of these stories has incredible and eternal significance.

EVERY ONE matters.

This report provides a glimpse of the impact we see every day at Living on the Edge, but we believe the work has just begun. I hope you are as blessed as I am to see how God is at work, and I pray you'll be inspired as you read about where we believe God is leading us.

To Help Christians Live Like Christians

No More Guesswork

“Before I was saved, I was dating women in serial relationships and still figured myself to be a pretty good person. I was relying on that because I didn’t have an understanding of sin or repentance. Then I was asked to join a Bible study. The more I read and understood, the bigger God became and the smaller I felt. I realized that I was following me and calling it “Christianity.” Chip’s book made it so clear for me that I didn’t have any guesswork. Homosexual practice and drug use were my most obvious sins, but there are many others God revealed – and continues to reveal – to me. I trust He’ll complete the work He’s begun, and now I just want to be an open vessel. I want to be a good wife and helper to my husband, Ben, and a servant with the story He has given me.” - Emily

Changed from the Inside

“I’m the proud momma of Clint, but I haven’t always been so proud because of his past drug addictions and the lifestyle that produces. Clint has 11 months left of a 6-year prison sentence. But over the last year, I’ve noticed changes taking place in Clint. He is listening and learning from your teaching, Chip. Through his letters, phones conversations and few brief visits, I’ve watched him evolve into something only possible through Jesus! He is bursting to share his life testimony upon release.” - Lisa

Work That Changes Lives

“For my family, coffee means everything. We have done very well thanks to God. Coffee is what provides for us to live, and we give work to others through it.”- Rogelio (Colombia)

Equipping Leaders

Through initiatives like Primemovers, we are helping marketplace leaders discover their calling and equipping them to make a difference as spiritual entrepreneurs.

A Primemovers Story

Michael built THRIVE Farmers® Coffee on the premise of putting people first. With a commitment to fair and equitable pro t sharing, THRIVE empowers farmers around the world with the economic sustainability to successfully care for their families. And God has blessed that commitment to value people over pro t. THRIVE was #19 on the 35th annual Inc. 500 “Fastest Growing Companies” list and is now the sole coffee provider for 2,000+ Chick-fil-A® stores.

“Your materials helped me understand how to integrate my faith with business, and that has led me to a place today that I could only have dreamt of being. We focus on this calling that God has placed on our life, and as God wills, we can change the world for His purposes.”

Hope Remains

“I’ve been following your program and it gives me so much encouragement as I try to live for Christ in this dark place. Our country has been torn by war, but the Word of God is the only hope we have left. Thank you for providing us with the teaching of Jesus.”- Amir (Syria)

Reaching the Middle East

By the grace of God, doors are opening in places once closed to Christianity. Through our partnership with Levant Ministries, we are reaching people in the Middle East with Biblical teaching.

Hearing the Truth

Our television broadcast is shown nine times each week across the entire Arabic-speaking world, and thousands engage with our Arabic-language Facebook page to learn more about the Christian faith.

content-5-1

Living on the Edge has produced more than twenty television series in Arabic, including The Real Heaven, True Spirituality, and Doing Good.

In early 2018, we will meet with hundreds of pastors and ministry leaders from the Middle East in preparation for the strategic release of Arabic-language versions of The Real God and Transformed.

Discovering Who God is

“After I finished reading Chip’s book, I learned that God is the Lord of creation, the Savior of mankind, and how you see God determines your whole relationship with Him.”- Zhang (China)

Partnering in China

The Chinese church is the fastest-growing in the world, yet with this growth also comes great need. Through strategic partnerships, we are working together to spread the message of who God really is.

Truth in Their Hands

Through our partnership with the official Three Self Church of China, we are privileged to provide discipleship resources and local training for pastors, teachers, and leaders. Drawing from Chip’s foundational teaching on the character of God, Chinese pastors are taking the message of The Real God to their congregations and area churches — helping others see God in a whole new light.

Hearing the Truth

As part of our Real God initiative, teams from Living on the Edge traveled to China in the spring and fall.

Training began in Nantong, a city of 7 million people near Shanghai. More than 80 leaders gathered to learn, representing over 40 churches and 60,000 Christians.

Training continued in the community of Wuxi with an in uential gathering of leaders that represented 74 churches in the area and over 100,000 Christians.

We have produced and distributed 200,000 copies of The Real God in Mandarin Chinese this year, and we are prayerfully collaborating to distribute more in the year ahead.

It is astounding to see the potential ripple e ect that this training can have, and it is our prayer that our Christian brothers and sisters in China will be equipped to share the message of The Real God with others.

youmatter

As encouraged as I am by what God has done, I am more motivated than ever to respond to the unprecedented doors He is opening for us in the U.S., China, Middle East, and beyond.

We live in an unstable world, leaving many desperate for truth and hope. It’s time to take our biggest step of faith yet by answering God’s call for even greater impact in 2018.

The need is great, but together we can play our part in God’s great redemptive plan.

Truly, EVERY ONE matters. YOU matter. Will you prayerfully join me in this mission?

Discovering Who God is

“Last year was a really hard year, but I listened to the app while I waited on the LORD and gained a lot from it. My view of God has grown now that it is based on truth, and my desire for His Word continues to grow. This ministry has been a vessel that Jesus used and continues to use to stretch me and to grow my spiritual muscles. Mungu awabariki (God bless you all).”- Naitore (Kenya)
