In Touch Ministries makes every effort to use contributions made for a particular project, such as the distribution of Messengers, for its specified purposes. In the event a project becomes overfunded or its purposes frustrated due to circumstances beyond our control, this may no longer be wise or practical. In such circumstances, In Touch Ministries will use those donations elsewhere to fulfill its fundamental mission of “leading people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ."

Modern Lebanon is no stranger to tension and strife—including conflict with its neighbors, war, and unrest from within. And since 2011, Lebanon has given refuge to 1.5 million people fleeing Syria. These new residents arrive with no possessions and few opportunities for their families.

But many are meeting Christ through the love of believers and the ministry of God’s Word. With tools from the In Touch Messenger Lab, they’re hearing the gospel and growing like the great cedars of Lebanon.

“… The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God.”

— Psalm 92:12-13

What is the
Messenger Lab?

What began with a solar-powered audio player containing the Bible and Dr. Stanley’s messages is now much more than a device. It’s grown into a collective of thinkers and servants all over the world working tirelessly for the gospel. Wherever we go, we look for the right solution at the right time—whether it’s one of our proprietary devices or another tool—to make sure the message of salvation in Jesus Christ is accessible to those who have never heard.

A Messenger Lab device contains: the entire Bible, dozens of Dr. Stanley’s foundational sermons, the 30 Life Principles, and other material meant to explain salvation and develop mature believers. Available in 100+ languages.

The Messenger is In Touch Ministries’ flagship solar-powered audio device. Since 2007, we’ve reached people who have limited access to electricity, internet, and broadcast media through this tool. Because it can feature multiple languages in one device, it’s capable of crossing borders and transcending barriers.

  • Solar-powered with a built-in flashlight and FM receiver
  • Pre-loaded with Scripture and messages from Dr. Stanley
  • Available in 100+ languages

When a village has a scarcity of electricity, there may not be enough light to read or study by, and getting together with believing friends might be impossible. The Torch, one of the more versatile of the Messenger Lab technologies, features a night-light, radio, and charging station. It’s made to bring people together.

  • Built-in lantern, radio, and flashlight
  • Loudspeaker for audiences up to 100 people
  • USB port for charging other mobile devices

Even in the most remote areas, many people carry a cellphone. The LightStream Pocket is designed to offer the gospel to people who don’t even know to look for it. The device detects the cellphone and notifies the owner that Bible resources are available for free download.

  • Portable content distribution system that creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Able to copy micro SD cards

Sometimes when entering customs, our Messenger Lab devices are met with scrutiny. So we’ve placed the same content found on our larger devices on a USB drive.

  • Small and easily shared from person to person
  • Compatible with nearly all computers
  • Easy to transport in bulk

Imagine not being able to safely carry a Bible or openly talk about the gospel. In places where this is a day-to-day reality, this tiny memory chip offers a way to listen to content surreptitiously through a cellphone.

  • Incredibly small and discreet
  • Fits nearly all cellphones and holds hundreds of audio files
  • Can be listened to individually or passed along to a new friend

Many countries don’t have accessible or affordable seminary training, but a tablet device provides a full library of resources for spiritual leaders. We provide tablets whenever In Touch Ministries representatives are on hand to perform Dr. Stanley’s Life Principles training.

  • Puts biblical training in the leaders’ hands
  • Loaded with Scripture and messages from Dr. Stanley, biblical dictionaries, encyclopedias, and more
  • Available in English and Spanish
