Join Me In Living Fearlessly
I’m partnering with my longtime friend Brother Andrew (May 11, 1928 – September 27, 2022) who showed me how to live a fearless life. I want to share with you some of what he taught me. Sign up to receive my twice-monthly email with Brother Andrew's powerful teaching and stories that demonstrate how we can live fearlessly by faith.
Fearless by Faith
Learn How to Fight Today's Spiritual Battles
For more than 50 years, Brother Andrew traveled the world, smuggling Bibles across Communist borders, encouraging Christians to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds. And now, as turmoil and chaos swirl around us--and the enemy of our souls infects our hearts with fear--Brother Andrew offers the same bold encouragement for the battles we face today.

Hi, I'm Al Janssen. I'm not naturally a fearless man. Allow me to introduce you to someone who showed me how to live boldly for God.
Who am I? I could tell you that Al Janssen has written more than 30 books. I cold "brag" about 50+ years as an editor, publisher, Chief Communications Officer, and consultant. Then you'd know a little about my resume, but not much about me as a person.
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I came to faith in fifth grade and experienced a revival my senior year in college. I served five years as a writer on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ (known today as Cru). Subsequently I continued to minister in several other Christian organizations. In 2010 I was ordained as an Anglican priest.
But this website is not about me. I want you to meet my friend Brother Andrew who taught me more about living for Jesus than any other individual. He did it mainly through his example.
It was my privilege to travel and work alongside Brother Andrew for 15 years. We wrote six books together. We ministered in countries where it is most dangerous to identify as Christian. Andrew took me with him to witness to leaders of extremist groups that persecute our Christian brothers and sisters.
Without a doubt this Dutch missionary lived a bold and radical faith that touched millions of lives.
My friend has finished his race and been promoted to heaven. I'm pouring through his notes, sermons and interviews and I want to share some of his insights with you. I plan to send two blogs per month. I hope you will sign up to receive these blog posts plus occasional emails with news about our newest book.
My prayer is that this blog with video clips from Brother Andrew will encourage you to live fearlessly for Jesus. I would love to hear how these message impact you. Send me your reactions and any questions. That will help me know how to draw from the treasure trove of Brother Andrew's experiences and teaching.
