A Light to the Nations, or ALN for short, is an independent evangelistic ministry. The vision of the team is to build the body of Christ worldwide by winning new believers, who will worship and become true disciples within existing churches, and by the encouragement of existing churches in evangelism and discipleship of new believers. We do this by serving locally and all over the world, partnering with local churches to organize Gospel Crusades where we see God save, deliver and heal the lost and broken. These large events take months of planning, thousands of volunteers, funding and, most importantly, prayer.

How You Can Help:

  • ALN is always looking for prayer partners: it is our number one need
  • From time to time ALN also has local events needing volunteers
  • Volunteers in overseas crusades
