Believers everywhere desperately need a renewed vision of Christ and the unstoppable advance of His saving work in all the earth. Our view of God's Kingdom is often too small and limited to what we have experienced. Dispatches from the Front highlights the marvelous extent, diversity, and unity of Christ's Kingdom in our world. The journal format of each episode underscores the daily unfolding of God's activity on the "frontlines," bringing viewers up-close with sights and sounds from distant corners of the Kingdom.
Our prayer is that Dispatches will magnify our God. It will unite our hearts with our brothers and sisters in different parts of the world. It will awaken us out of our comfortable Christianity. It will expand our vision of the King and His powerful Gospel.

Peter Hansen is the executive producer of the Dispatches from the Front series. As an independent video producer, Pete operates Hansen Production Studios.

Pete’s work has taken him around the world, including such places as Russia, China, India, Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
