As a child I grew up doing tent revivals with my Dad. I remember getting baptized a few times just to get wet. In 1999 I was a young Gospel artist who just had a passion for urban evangelism. We spent almost every Saturday going to apartment complexes, churches, prisons, and car shows to spread the Gospel.
In 2007 my wife and I set off for Corsicana, Texas ( where we now pastor ) to spread the same message of the Cross to this generation. We started on a small corner lot, we gave away food to those in need and had a concert for the community. We shared the Word of God and prayed for dozens as the came forward. Then God put it in our heart to do another urban outreach for Spring break. For three days over one hundred kids showed up nightly.
Many came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We lived four hours away, but we were blessed to drive back and forth for four years. The corner lot became too small so we moved it to an old football field ( Bears field ) to have more room to have a back to school out reach.
My favorite TV show is ABC’s Extreme make over, Home addition. Ty and his team see a need, and they make plans to meet it. They come to a city and gather the people from the community who want to help, they show up in their bus and get to work. Matthew 9:37 says that the harvest is plentiful but the laborer are few. I want when people see this bus they see a sign of hope, change and that God cares and loves them. Jesus did this where ever he went for our model to follow.
Here are a few examples of what this bus will be used for:
- Picking up youth for our weekly after school program
- Back to school drives
- Feeding and clothing the needy
- Live outdoor concerts with a message of hope
- Disaster relief assistance
- College outreaches ( On campus )
- Angeltree camp ( Reaching out to kids who has a parent incarcerated )
- Hallow One ( Halloween Outreach )
- Partnering with Ministries to help reach their community, And more…
