UCCF to make 50,000 Uncover Gospels available to churches
50,000 hardback Moleskine-inspired UCCF Uncover Gospels are to be made available to local churches from April 2013.
UCCF’s decision to print an additional 50,000 Gospels comes in the light of widespread demand from church leaders who have seen students distribute around 100,000 Gospels as part of UCCF’s ‘Pray for 5, Give to 5, Read with 5’ seeker Bible study campaign. The Gospels, which converge digital with traditional print media, have been hailed as one of the best evangelistic resources ever to have been produced by UCCF, generating widespread acclaim from church members and Christian leaders alike.
Rico Tice, creator and founder of the Christianity Explored Course and Associate Minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, said, ‘Uncover and all of the one-to-ones it has unleashed all over the country is such a significant contribution. It is enabling me to say to my people, “If the students are doing it – so should we”. I’ve never had that sort of leverage before, and am saying it on a Christianity Explored Table Leaders Tour.’
Adrian Reynolds, Director of Ministry at the Proclamation Trust, commented, ‘Uncover is one of the most exciting resources that I have ever seen. The carefully thought through and tested mix of attractive gospel, seeker Bible study and online material means that Christians of all ages will be equipped and encouraged to read the Bible with their non-Christians friends.’
Pod Bhogal, Head of Communications for UCCF, said, ‘Our vision is to empower everyday Christians to open up Luke’s Gospel with their friends. There’s no need to be an expert or to have all the answers. All you need is to be willing to pray for your friends and invite them to read it with you.’
The Uncover Gospels will be officially launched at the New Word Alive Easter event and will soon be available to purchase online from uccf.org.uk/uncover
