It has been another incredible year for us here at InFocus ministries! I have been to 12 different states, shared the Gospel with thousands of teenagers, and seen a “bunch of teenagers get saved” in all 12 of those states! There is no doubt in our minds that this incredible year is a direct result of God leading us last year to make some changes in the way we handle the business side of this ministry. Beginning in mid summer of 2015 we made the commitment to go to any church of any size regardless of what they are able to pay. We have always been willing to work with people to make events happen but in the last year we have taken that to a whole ‘nother level! Our prayer has become simply: “God, fill my schedule and meet our needs!”
Ministry-wise it has been the best thing we have ever done. I have had more events and seen more teens saved and lives changed than ever before. God is on the move and it is amazing to watch Him work in this generation. I can’t begin to tell you how awesome it is to share this experience with you via Facebook. Each time I share about teens getting saved it’s so awesome celebrating with y’all via likes and comments.
Financially it has been a journey, as week to week we step out in faith not always knowing what each church will be able to pay. Over and over again God has been faithful to take care of us. Sometimes more kids sign up than ever before and the church is able to meet the goal. Other times the church is unable to meet the goal but we receive a donation that makes up the difference.
We are asking you to prayerfully consider being that difference.
If you feel led to join us in reaching teenagers for Christ, please consider us in your year-end giving or partnering with us as you feel led. Donations can be made online here or you can send a check to InFocus Ministries, 1006 Cactus Dr., Levelland, TX 79336. All donations are tax deductible.
We are so thankful for your prayers, your friendship, and your support.
My son, Nick aka “BigRunkDaddy 6” is playing varsity quarterback this fall for the Levelland Lobos and I’m determined not to miss a single game for three reasons: 1. I’m his dad and he wants me there. 2. he’s really good and I want to see him play, and 3. its just the right thing to do. So we are simply trusting that God will provide unique opportunities of ministry this Fall that will work around Nick’s games.
As a result my Fall Schedule through November will be limited to Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday events or Sunday – Wednesday type events. I only have two full weekends available until November because of a Thursday night game and the bye week. So if you’re interested in booking me for a weekend before November, I will only be available The weekends of August 27 & October 1.
Fall weekends available prior to November:
Other than that let’s get creative and do some one nighters, short weekends, or maybe even a souped up, modernized youth revival!
So give me a call and let’s get together and make some unique plans to reach teenagers for Jesus!!
Just finished up Super Week at Pioneer Drive Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas. Jeff Scott, Travis Craver, and their team of really cool interns put on an awesome event. It was basically a youth revival wrapped up in a camp trapped in a Super Summer. The students were divided into teams, did ridiculous cheers, played crazy games all leading into awesome worship led by the band Redwise. God moved powerfully each night with many teenagers finding a new relationship with Jesus. Who says youth revivals are dead? This was one of the coolest events I’ve ever been a part of and I’m so humbled to have been a small part of what God is doing at PDBC. Here is a highlight video of Super Week, which by the way I filmed entirely on an iphone. Those things are stinking amazing. I don’t know how I ever lived without it.
PDBC students, you guys rock! Keep on loving Jesus and Living Weak! Thanks so much for letting me hang out with y’all this week!
I just had lunch at the “World Famous” Harold’s Barbecue in Abilene, Texas. In the middle of lunch Harold came out of the kitchen and led the entire restaurant in the Amen Chorus. It was absolutely hilarious and really awesome at the same time. Check out the video.
