OUR STORY

OUR BEGINNING

The Conversation

In 2014, we began a conversation in people’s living rooms and churches about the trajectory of our nation and what God expects us to do. Throughout the nation, we met passionate people who are concerned about what is happening and what we can do to make a difference. Encouraged by this, we started connecting these like-minded individuals, and we began creating resources to help them become more effective in their efforts to see change.

The Conclusion

These conversations focused on a timeless principle in Jeremiah 18:7–10 where God says:

If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed, but then that nation renounces its evil ways, I will not destroy it as I had planned. And if I announce that I will plant and build up a certain nation or kingdom, but then that nation turns to evil and refuses to obey me, I will not bless it as I said I would (NLT).

God has always responded to nations according to their faithfulness to Him. Together, we concluded that we cannot ignore God’s commands or modify them to fit our lifestyles and expect that He will continue to bless our nation. Instead, we should expect national turmoil. Feeling compelled to spread this, Forerunners of America was established to help equip and empower people to proclaim this message throughout America.

OUR MESSAGE

We are living in unusual days and believe that greater national challenges likely lie ahead. While this might be unsettling to many, our message is to help people discern the hour and respond in faith not fear. Indeed, in the midst of tumultuous days, FOA is believing God for the greatest harvest our nation has seen in generations.

OUR PASSION

We are eager to help Christians stand firm through increasingly difficult times and to be equipped and empowered to minister to others during these times. Believing that national turmoil will produce an ideal climate for sharing Jesus’ life-changing message, Forerunners is passionate about helping people transform cultural topics of discussion into opportunities to have meaningful conversation about God’s heart and expectations for our nation. Together, we hope to encourage people to warn others of coming national shakings, to respond in faith rather than fear, and to become dramatically more effective in sharing with others the good news that is found in Jesus.

OUR APPROACH

Forerunners began in relationship, and we believe relationship is a key to seeing meaningful change. We provide useful resources to help equip individuals to have life-changing conversations with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. We emphasize influencing those within our natural spheres of influence by speaking into the issues that they are already talking about, and Forerunners demonstrates how to transition these conversations about cultural topics into eternally significant dialog.

WHERE WE COME TOGETHER

Forerunners is the result of passionate people coming together with the conviction that, with Jesus, all things are possible. We each have a role to play, and we believe that, even in the midst of difficult times, this can be the finest hour for those who are committed and faithful to God. Because this looks different for each one of us, Forerunners has striven to serve as a resource hub, offering a variety of tools to assist in whatever the Lord may be calling people to do:

  • For those who wish to educate themselves, Forerunners offers videos, articles, blogs, papers, and books addressing a variety of topics.
  • For those who are eager to share with others God’s heart for our nation, Forerunners provides tools designed to guide these conversations and even discussion-oriented Bible studies.
  • For those who are willing to connect people but prefer not to do the talking, a Forerunners staff member can come teach in your home or church.
  • And for those who are unsure of where to begin, Forerunners provides personal coaching with a Forerunners staff member.
