Who we are

Jesus.net is a worldwide network of over 120 organizations operating in more than 40 languages with the common dream and strategy of helping people take one step closer to Jesus every day. Together with individuals and organizations who support the work, we strive to make this dream a reality.

Our dream

We develop

We develop and share online tools and resources like A Miracle Every Day, YouVersion and The Life of Jesus film to spread the gospel. We use a unique stepping stones strategy to help online seekers grow in their faith.

We share

Our partners can use all the tools, technology, content and knowledge that is available in the network because we aim to reach every single person with the gospel in his/her own language. Our support team is available to assist our partners.

Global office

Jan-Willem Bosman, Executive Director


"It is my dream to see people who are searching for Jesus, find him through technology and lead them to local faith communities. It is my desire that we, as Christians, are using cutting-edge technology from our Creator to enhance the Kingdom!”

Reinout van Heiningen, International Director


“I love to work with our partners around the world to develop strategies that fit their local context. You will find me more abroad than in the office to spend time with our partners.”

John van Leeuwen, Operations director


“My ambition is to make sure we have a solid foundation, where we can build and expand our mission, so that people might find God or that we help people grow in their faith. I love the fact that we use all kinds of technology to achieve that goal, and that I'm part of a great team doing all that!”

Norm Schulz, Director of Development


"I envision Jesus.net creating a global wave that engages people in a spiritual journey across time zones and in different languages as it circles the globe."
