Chris Franz was created to go where others won't. Though the German-born evangelist has spent years serving the church in Europe and the United States, his burning desire continues to take the gospel into uncharted territory—particularly tribes and people groups known for killing those who follow Jesus.
Since forming CITA (Christ Is the Answer) Ministries in 1998, Franz has led almost 100 crusades and seen hundreds of thousands come to Christ—as well as countless signs and miracles—as he's gone to some of the world's most dangerous places for believers.
While his ministry equips and supports a network of ministries and indigenous missionaries for church planting, several of the latter have become martyrs.
"It's a price we must pay," Franz says. "We live in a time where we can no longer allow anything—even death—to keep us from the harvest fields of God. We're on the last stretch of fulfilling the Great Commission, and I believe these regions of the world are the last stand. This generation must be saved!"
