Advancing the Ministries of the Gospel (AMG) International is organizing a massive evangelistic outreach to spread the gospel to tens of thousands of visitors to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.

Over the past week at the Olympics, AMG organized many hospitality events, concerts, and scripture distribution. Most noticeably event was the “A Tribute to the Unknown God” rally, which attracted more than 5,000 people.

The rally’s theme was based on the famous journey of Apostle Paul some 2,000 years ago. “The rally was an effort to lift up the name of Jesus in the center of Athens,” said AMG’s Fotis Romeos. "The Olympic Games have come back to their home. So as Christians we like to take the opportunity and share Christ with the people visiting our city here in Athens from all over the world."

Being center of world attention for the Olympic Games, Athens is an eminent target for evangelism. The sports games have provided a unique opportunity to share the love of Christ to a worldwide audience.

AMG's ministry efforts will continue through the Olympic Games closing ceremonies this weekend.
