ABOUT OUR MINISTRY
Jesus Alliance and NeedServ, both with similar missions to mobilize the church, officially merged February 18, 2020. The ministries will operate under the Jesus Alliance name and will be powered by the NeedServ app, a progressive web application that serves as a conduit to connect those who want to help but don’t know how with those who need help and don’t know where to ﬁnd it.
The Jesus Alliance was founded by Christian and entrepreneur Bob Williamson in 2012 after the Lord gave him the vision to unite, equip, and mobilize Christians to take action.
“I had just started enjoying retirement when the Lord put it on my heart to go back to work to unite the body of believers to spread hope and disciple the nations,” said Williamson, chairman emeritus of the Jesus Alliance. “We grew the ministry to over 570,000 Facebook followers and continue to reach millions of people with messages of truth, but were never really able to provide a way for people to go out and take action.”
Around the same time, in Louisiana, Michael Phillips left a successful business to launch the All In Movement, a ministry focused on encouraging Christians to live their purpose. All In initially launched its Needserv app to facilitate acts of service through a #DoGoodFriday campaign with Governor Mike Huckabee in 2015. The ministry was later renamed Needserv when its founders realized that service could be a vehicle to attract the children of God and enable them to be a demonstration of His love to others every day. The Needserv app has since been refined to help facilitate partnerships with local churches, businesses, and nonprofits to meet the needs of PEOPLE within their communities.
“Both organizations have always shared the belief that by forming partnerships and alliances and giving people a way to take action, we can more effectively make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ,” said Phillips. “This merger is a logical path to increase the impact of our ministry. We are an Alliance of partners sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through service.”
