The Power of One
Reaching Every Person on Earth

How can eight billion people have an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ? Is it possible that every person on Earth will be reached with the good news of the gospel in our generation?

How can eight billion people have an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ? Is it possible that every person on Earth will be reached with the good news of the gospel in our generation? Can we mobilize today's church for collaborative results achieved in unprecedented ways? What can one person do to make a difference?

In The Power of One, Dr. Wilson answers these questions by providing a clear path forward through the re-personalization of the Great Commission and a renewed focus on the potential of everyONE.

A new era of global evangelism is dawning in our post-pandemic, fast-moving, 21st-century world. Jesus's method of reaching one person and thus unlocking their capacity to touch the masses is being reclaimed. The most significant days of Great Commission effort in human history are before us.

Reaching every person on Earth will necessitate and demonstrate The Power of ONE!

“Just as Jesus explained that the Good Shepherd leaves ninety-nine sheep safe to go after the one sheep that is lost, The Power of One explains why and how each of us can do our part in reaching everyONE with the Good News that they matter to God, Christ died for them, and that He wants them in His family forever! ”
— Rick Warren, Author of The Purpose Driven Life

“If every believer would reach the 'ones' around them, we would have an overnight spiritual awakening! If every believer would set their eyes on the 'ones' all over the world who have no Gospel access, we could finish the Great Commission! Dr. Wilson is not only leading this charge, he has given us this book as a timely, prophetic, and visionary charge for the incredible hour we live in! Let us take up this cause together to reach the 'one.'”
— Andy Byrd, YWAM Kona, The Send

“If our culture has shown us anything in recent years, it presents to us a world in desperate need of the good news of Jesus. In The Power of One, Dr. Billy Wilson offers both the challenge before us and the remarkable opportunity to proclaim the gospel in the power of the Spirit. As president of Oral Roberts University, I particularly appreciate his insight into Gen Z and its potential as a gospel force. We need a fresh burden for the lost and a renewed practice of evangelism that this book details!”
— Dr. Ed Stetzer, Dean of Talbot School of Theology

“In The Power of One, my mentor and friend, Dr. Billy Wilson, issues a clarion call for the purpose of activating the "one." One person set free in the name of Jesus can change a generation. A multitude of "ones" filled with the power of the Holy Spirit can literally change the world. This book reminds all of us to be the "one" that reaches the "one" for the purpose of worshiping the "One"—Jesus, the risen Christ.”
— Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Lead Pastor, New Season Church, President and CEO of NHCLC
