LHM Ministry Response
The Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) ministry center in Panama City has been effective in utilizing printed resources, mass media, and programs to share the Gospel and hope in Jesus Christ. All of LHM—Panama's activities have a common objective: to bring Christ to the nations, and the nations to Christ. Out of all the outreach programs working to achieve this goal, Project JOEL and the Equipping the Saints (ETS) workshops have had the most significant impact.
The Project JOEL program was instituted in an effort to bring a solid Christian witness to Panamanian youth, and provide them with information to truly help them to share their values. It has now become an integral preventive program designed to expose and offer educators and students alternative faith-based lifestyles that are more healthy and productive for society.
ETS training is given to lay Lutheran people in preparation for evangelism. It is equipping them with evangelistic materials and other resources to help the ministry reach the lost.
Three types of Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC) are offered through the ministry. Namely: "Towards a New Life," "Knowing Jesus Christ for Adults" and "A Loving Father and a Good Friend for Children."
