Our vision is to see America come back to God! If this is to happen, then we must
return to old-fashion Biblical principles. God ordained family, church and government
and we must maintain God's plan for each. God's plan is for all His creation to be
drawn to Him. We will preach to this end.
We want to use the time we have claimed
for this meeting wisely. We have found folks are really interested in doing things
God's way if they only know how. We like to conduct Practical Christian Living Classes
before each service. We teach: husband/wife relationships, educational responsibilities
of our children, government's Biblical position, etc.
The preaching services are
aimed at bringing revival back to our church. We will preach salvation to the lost
and edification to the saints. Commitment to God is our prayer!
If God isn't in it we are wasting our time. Just having a meeting is not God's plan.
I have no gimmicks or tricks - just the Spirit of God. Prayer must begin when God
lays this meeting on your heart.
At least four weeks before the God and Country Sunday, you should write a personal
letter to all the officials you would like to be at the God and Country Service (state
senator, state representative, mayor, judges, sheriff, chief of police, city councilmen,
etc.). If possible, I will include a list of these officials for you. If you have
any update, please send it to me. After you have done this, send me all their names
and addresses. I will write them a personal letter also. I will prepare an award
for each of them. It is a very nice certificate especially printed for our officials.
I will bring them with me so you can sign them before they are framed. You will need
to purchase 8 x 10 frames prior to the meeting.
If you would like my wife to help in the Christian Living Class, please let me know.
She teaches the ladies in one session and we bring the family teaching together as
a family in the next session. These classes are for everyone 12 years old and up.
I will not ask a set amount for our meeting. We are a total faith ministry. I will
not complain because we are trusting God and He knows our needs. All my wife, daughter
and I need is a place to stay and I leave those arrangements to your choosing. If
you want to provide meals, that will be fine. We want to be used as God leads you.
*We believe the tithe should go to the local church - we preach it, teach it and
practice it. All we ask is a love offering be taken each night, preferably at the
close of the service. On Sunday it should be made plain that the tithe and offerings
during the services go to the work of the local church and at the close of the Sunday
services an opportunity be given for an offering for our ministry.
Because of this,
God has blessed us and the testimony of the pastors has been their offerings are
larger. Praise the Lord!
Make announcements, share how God is working in our state government as I serve as
Missionary/ Chaplain and about the ministry in Washington D.C. as I minister to those
working in our U.S. Capitol, let folks know this is a family revival with information
they won't get anywhere else. We know our outreach will be in proportion to getting
the message out.
Most newspapers have community news (free!); radio has public service
announcements (free!); and television has public services (free!). If we use what
God gives us, He will bless us!
