Rev. Dr. Yousaf Bhatti is the founder & President of JDMN. He is serving with his wife Pastor Anna Yousaf throughout Pakistan. During the year 2000, by the guidance of Holy Spirit, he laid the foundation of Jesus Disciple Ministries for Nations (JDMN). JDMN conducts ongoing Open Air Evangelistic Conventions and Crusades nationwide where thousands of people gather to hear the message of salvation. In order to disciple those who receive Jesus Christ as Lord, they organize leadership conferences, women’s Conferences, youth conferences and workshops all across Pakistan. They inaugurated the JDMN Bible College in Pakistan and through this ministry they have produced 800 new Christian leaders who are serving nationwide to plant and lead new vibrant non-denominational churches. They work to help equip the new churches with essential practical resources such as providing to them with musical instruments and rugs. Moreover JDMN supplies motorcycles to trusted pastors whose mission it is to work in the slums and neglected areas.
God is also using JDMN to raise up the standard of men and women of Brick Kiln in Pakistan through opening and operating skills learning centers, adult education centers and providing health services and related activities. They are regularly opening Sunday school services for the street children in large cities. The Love Box Project (similar to Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Ministry, but operated by JDMN) is playing a vital role to reach the unreached children and especially those who are enslaved as part of the brick makers entrapped by Muslim brick factory owners.
On the 7th September, 2013 God placed a dynamic concept or idea into Yousaf’s mind to reach those people who are in their homes but may have a burning desire to know about Jesus. This idea was to open a Christian Television Channel, here in Muslim Pakistan, with the name Holy Fire TV (HFTV). On February 7, 2014 JDMN began operations of HFTV. They began this cable channel in a small colony where Christians and Muslims are living together in the community. The first colony included about 1,500 to 2,000 people who began to receive the HFTV channel. They began to receive many threatening phone calls from some fundamental Muslim organizations.
They were threatening JDMN because through HFTV many Muslim people were able to privately learn about Jesus in their own homes and hundreds were getting healed and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord. Although they threatened JDMN as Christians and as Christian leaders, they discerned that they were compelled to continue forward with HFTV. Amid many challenges Yousaf and the team have continued the ongoing programming of HFTV and God helped to gradually gained access to new colonies where HFTV is now available by cable television. Now, by His grace, they have extended HFTV to the 10 largest colonies and almost 200,000 people daily are watching in Lahore, Pakistan and getting blessed. Every day they receive ongoing testimonies of healings, deliverances and many hundreds of people accepting Jesus as Lord. Rev. Dr. Yousaf Bhatti lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his wife Anna and their two children.
God has called me for Islamic Republic of Pakistan, where by its name this is strong Islamic country where 97% are Muslims and 3% are others nations include Christianity. I was like a Jonah who would run away from the presence of God. My father would always advise me to pray, make a personal relation with God and seek him but I always ignored his advice. I would always enjoy bad company, my friends are addicted and we always were ready to commit something wrong which is not good in the sight of God.
Even though I knew God and also had bible college diploma I was far away from my Savior. Then one night after the death of my father while I was missing him and I was crying on my bed, God the Almighty met me and said “Stop crying and get up. I chose you and appointed you to bear fruit, fruit that will last. ” John 3: 16. It was like 21 years ago. Right on that moment I knelt down and asked forgiveness for my disobedience. Right on next day I joined Pastor John (a close friend of my father) and started to serve God with him.
During ministry I got my Bachelor in Theology, then Master of Divinity and finally my Doctor of Divinity from Trinity Biblical University. Now by the mercy and grace of God I am serving throughout Pakistan with my team “JDMN”.
I am the son of pastor Younas Masih (late) and Awar Bibi, Evangelist. I am husband of my loving wife, Anna, father of 3 children- 2 sons, Elijah and Nethanyahu and 1 daughter, Bulsan. I grew up in Lahore, Pakistan, having 3 brothers and 2 sisters and all are in ministry and serving our Lord Jesus with bold hearts. My mother, Anwar, is an evangelist serving our Lord Jesus throughout Pakistan. My elder brother Peter and my elder sister Nomi are serving as evangelist and younger brother Haroon is serving as a pastor.
Moreover, my grandfather belonged to the “Sikh” family who worship idols. My father, Pastor Younas, was the first person in my entire family who accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior after hearing the message of salvation from an American missionary and then he led his entire family to Christ. My father was the one who gave baptism to my grandfather, my uncles & aunts, now by the grace of god my 3 uncles and 3 aunts are serving the Lord Jesus in different parts of the country.
