The Greatest Journey

The Greatest Journey

In 2008, The Greatest Journey curriculum was developed as a relationship-based discipleship programme by Samaritan’s Purse in partnership with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and curriculum experts from Logosdor. 

The programme was first implemented in 2009.  Since then:

  • 84,695 teachers have been trained to teach The Greatest Journey
  • 1,710,993 children have enrolled in the programme
  • 665,332 children have confirmed decisions for Christ in writing, and
  • 711,088 children have committed to praying for/sharing their faith with family and friends.

In 2012:

  • 39,725 teachers were trained
  • 707,739 children enrolled in The Greatest Journey
  • 496,947 children graduated from the programme, receiving a New Testament in their language
  • 290,991 children confirmed decisions for Christ in writing.

Following on from the 2013 Operation Christmas Child campaign, Samaritan’s Purse hopes to enroll 1.4 million children from more than 80 countries in The Greatest Journey.  Funding for The Greatest Journey is separate and distinct from Operation Christmas Child and globally, in 2013, Samaritan’s Purse must raise £5.2 million to fund The Greatest Journey.

It starts with a shoebox...

The Greatest Journey is one of the most dynamic investments in the local church overseas that can be made at a church, community, or country level.  A gift of just £4 per child provides teacher training, a Leader’s Guide, the curriculum, a New Testament Bible and all shipping.
