We are just weeks away from entering an exciting, unprecedented, history-making season of evangelism, as a church and as a nation! Here’s a little taste of what’s on the menu…
This September 28, we will be partnering with Harvest and Pastor Greg Laurie for Harvest America – an evangelistic event live-streamed in HD around the nation from Philadelphia! According to their website, we are currently 1 of over 1,400 venues around the U.S. that will be streaming this event. On September 28, we’ll get to worship with others across the nation, hear music from Kirk Franklin, Needtobreathe, and Lecrae, and most importantly, hear a life-changing message from Pastor Greg Laurie. At every venue, people will have an opportunity to respond to the Gospel message!

Friday, October 11 will be the third Uprising here in Clarksville. We launched this city-wide outreach in March 2012, and in just our first two events, we’ve seen 59 decisions for Christ! The next Uprising is just about 1 month away, and we’re moving to a different venue this time: Austin Peay’s Music/Mass Communications Building. It seats almost 600 people and is wired for audio/video goodness, so it will look and sound even better. House of Heroes will be joining us this year, so we’re excited to rock out with them. Of course the focus of the night is a life-changing message about life, death and eternity that I will be giving. Pray with us that God will use the event to unite churches, empower Christians, and save sinners!

Since 2002, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has taken the My Hope project to 57 countries, partnered with over 300,000 churches and over 4 million homes. They’ve been training people up to share their faith in their own living rooms, surrounded by neighbors and friends they’ve invited. On average, they’ve seen 2.2 decisions for Christ per household, totaling over 10 million decisions for Christ just in the last 10 years since its inception! That’s a mind-boggling number! Thursday, November 7 is a day that will go down in history as Billy Graham preaches a message (that some say may be his last), coinciding with his 95th birthday, which will be broadcast around the nation via radio, TV, and internet. People will be able to tune into the message, then lead their neighbors and friends to Christ in the comfort of their very own living room! We’ll be encouraging individuals, families, and Awaken Groups to participate in this historic and unprecedented event.

If you know anything about Awaken, you know that evangelism makes our heart beat. We’re so honored to be a part of these exciting events, and we’re joining with hundreds of thousands of others as we pray for friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, and complete strangers to come to Christ. I believe these next few months could be the catalyst for God to turn our nation back to Him!
