I believe the message that the local church has must be shouted out! The message that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and no man can come to the Father except through Jesus.
Here at Grace we will do everything we can to introduce people to Jesus. We do outreaches that we call blitzes. They are random acts of kindness that let people know that we love them and Jesus does too. We also have a large outreach at Halloween called Judgment House. This is an interactive walk-through with live actors and varied scenes to get people to face the realities of life and death.
This video above will be run in our local movie theatres to advertise our outreach. This was put together by our video guy Walt Anderson who has tons of creativity packed into his mind. He just walked into my office and we watched it together.
Last year we saw over 100 people gives their lives to Jesus through this outreach. Kudos to Pastor Rich, our youth pastor who makes this happen every year. And kudos to Walt and all the creative people that God brought to Grace.
Remember this too, you attract who you are, and you attract people who can unleash their creativity, if you are a creative place. I can't wait to see the people as they enter the last room with me, as I share the salvation story, by that point their hearts are pretty ripe and open to Jesus. Because all along the way creative people have acted out this drama. Unleash your creativity to reach the world for Jesus. Oh yeah, we serve a creative God who created everything with words.
