PraiseFest Ministries was conceived to bring the Body of Christ together to show the world Jesus.
This year, during the last week of May, over 3000 people debarked from Miami, Fl, on the Cruise With a Cause, bound for Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was one of the most innovative and life-changing outreach efforts that most of the participants had ever experienced. The result? 21,142 decisions were made for Christ!
CWAC president, Dr. Matthew Dunaway explains, â€œBack in 2002, God spoke to me during my quiet time with the words of John 17:23. There, Jesus prays to his Father, â€œMay they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.â€ Dunaway knew that God was calling him to the mission field, but his assignment was to be quite non-traditional.
- Get people together from different races, denominations, and ages for one purposeâ€”to share the love of Jesus Christ
- Get people out of their comfort zone and into a situation where they can comfortably sharing the Gospel, even it\’s their first time; then hopefully bring that experience back home so they can help build their local church.
- Provide a family-friendly mission effort in which kids can actually participate.
