Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

Helping the thinker believe. Helping the believer think.

RZIM is a global ministry that seeks to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ to cultural influencers throughout the world.

 

Ravi Zacharias International Ministries is a global team of speakers with offices throughout the world in: the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Romania, Turkey, the Middle East, India, Singapore and Hong Kong. RZIM seeks to meet people where they are culturally, intellectually and spiritually. 

Mission

The primary mission of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries is to reach and challenge those who shape the ideas of a culture with the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Distinctive in its strong evangelistic and apologetic foundation, the ministry of RZIM is intended to touch both the heart and the intellect of the thinkers and influencers of society through the support of the visionary leadership of Ravi Zacharias.

Vision

The vision of RZIM is to build a team with a fivefold thrust of evangelism, apologetics, spiritual disciplines, training, and humanitarian support so that the mandate of I Peter 3:15 might be fulfilled: to set apart Christ in our hearts as Lord and always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us, with gentleness and respect, all for the glory of God.

Evangelism 

RZIM’s itinerants travel throughout the world articulating the beauty and credibility of the Gospel and speaking truth in love through open forums, closed-door sessions, training events, community outreach, youth apologetics, various media (including radio, Internet and podcasting to name a few) and other venues.

Apologetics

RZIM is a global ministry that seeks to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. At its essence, apologetics is the art and science of Christian persuasion: communicating the relevance, coherence, and reasonableness of the Christian Gospel to skeptics, cultural influencers, and critical thinkers across the globe.

Spiritual Disciplines

RZIM strives to model and build Christ-like character through our books, CDs, DVDs, radio, television and online offerings.

RZIM’s two radio programs, Just Thinking and Let My People Think, provide a much-needed voice: a compelling delivery of biblical truth in truth-starved times suited for the seeker and skeptic, as well as both new and long-time Christians.

RZIM also offers a daily email, A Slice of Infinity, which delivers words of challenge, truth and hope designed to provide its readers with the opportunity to further examine their beliefs, culture, and the unique message of Jesus Christ.

Training

RZIM stands in the gap between the church and the world to:

  • reach the minds of men and women with the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • to equip this generation of Christians with a culturally relevant apologetic, enabling them to contend for their faith
  • to enter arenas of resistance and reclaim ground lost to skepticism and secularism
  • to impact leaders in their sphere of influence on matters of character and discipline so that both heart and mind are in tune with the heart and mind of God.

Wellspring

As the humanitarian arm of RZIM, Wellspring comes alongside internationally-positioned organizations helping to provide rescue, rehabilitation, restoration and re-entry to individuals, primarily women and children, in disadvantaged situations overseas. This includes those working in the sex-trafficking industry, children at risk and women seeking to achieve their full potential through education and vocational training.

The value in this outreach is in affirming the sacredness of every human life as a creation of God. In these acts of loving-kindness toward those in need, RZIM Wellspring International seeks to proclaim the Gospel in deed and thereby speak an apologetic that every human being can understand.
