In 2009, God called Chris Mikkelson as an evangelist to the nations of the world to conduct large scale mass evangelistic Gospel Crusades and in 2015, God called Chris and his wife Amanda to launch Chris Mikkelson Evangelistic Ministries (CMEM). At CMEM, our primary focus is to preach the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in some of the most unreached places on the planet; primarily going to countries that have 2% Christianity or less. This vision has taken our team to places such as Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and around the world.
Since launching into full time evangelistic ministry in March of 2015, thousands have come to Christ in our mass evangelistic campaigns. Although our primary focus is to preach the Gospel and lead the masses to Christ, we believe that all evangelism must lead people into the local churches for discipleship. We believe that evangelism without discipleship is not real evangelism. This is why we work closely with the local churches for each crusade, ensuring that every new believer is followed up with and as a result, churches are being planted and new believers are flooding the local churches to be discipled after each crusade.
4 PHASE STRUCTURE
Each year we conduct 4-7 major Gospel Crusades in the most unreached nations of the earth. In order to conduct this amount of large scale crusades, we use a 4 phase plan. This plan is used to organize the campaigns where as many as 20,000 to 30,000 people attend nightly.
1. Pre-Crusade Planning
We organize every Gospel Crusade months and even up to one year in advance. With the help of our local crusade director on the ground in these countries, a team is built to organize all aspects of the crusade including venue and equipment rental, staging, lighting, promotion, logistics, local church mobilization and transportation for the poor from surrounding villages.
2. Fundraising By Faith
To conduct these campaigns, we walk by faith each step of the way to raise the necessary finances. These Gospel Crusades can easily cost between $30,000-$40,000 USD and there is a strong possibility of seeing 30,000-40,000 people come to Christ in each crusade. That’s one person saved for every $1.00 spent on the crusade. These crusades are not possible without our monthly partners, businesses and supporting churches.

3. Gospel Message
Each crusade is conducted over four to five consecutive nights and usually ends on a Sunday night with the attendance at its largest. Chris will preach a clear message of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ and what He has done for us on the cross. An altar call for salvation follows the preaching of the Gospel each night. We also pray for the sick to be healed and for the baptism of the Holy Spirit at each Gospel Campaign.
We believe that all evangelism MUST lead the new believer into the local church to be discipled. At the end of each night, decision cards from each new believer are collected, which includes their contact information. The very next day after the crusade, these decision cards are distributed to the local churches near the homes of the new believers. The church will then follow-up with them to ensure that they are discipled. This is the same method that Evangelists Billy and Franklin Graham have used for many years. This is also the same method that Evangelists Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda use today and is by far the best method for ensuring that each new believer is ushered into a church and is discipled.
