I’m WAY excited!
Carl Brettle from UCB recently challenged me, “If you wrote an evangelistic resource that will connect to 21st Century people, I think we could make thousands of copies available to give FREE to churches.”
I met him a week or so after to see if he was serious or whether that was just a rush of blood.
We discussed an idea I’d had about a year before that I’d been thinking and praying about and following that I’m just about to start writing and producing what will be at least two resources. I can’t give you the titles etc yet but there will be…
1) A short, punchy booklet and DVD resource linked to a website full of amazing testimonies challenging people to follow Jesus Christ
2) Another free resource for those who have done so (or are still on the edges of it) to help disciple them to make disciples.
Both resources will have dedicated websites to really help people who engage with the material at every level and we are planning on having tens of thousands of these resources available free to churches and outreach organisations across the whole of the nation!
This seems like the biggest challenge of my ministry so far in what Ivy believe is our ‘Year Of Opportunity.’
I had a bit of a wobble in the week about not feeling able to deliver then a great dream, where I was so encouraged by the Lord telling me HE has everything that is needed for this.
I’ll keep you in touch as I get more – but for now, if you pray, please would you pray for me as I start to put pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard on the first part of the resource. I am more daunted by the short booklet than the book to be honest as every word has to really count.
And if you have a few minutes to answer either of the following question that would help me too –
WHAT IS, OR HAS BEEN, MOST SURPRISING ABOUT GOD?
