It was a warm evening, the food had been cooked, the music had been selected, and the guests had been invited. Like many fundraising banquets you may have gone to, there was food, and guest speakers with presentations based on the theme of the evening. But somehow this banquet was different. This banquet also included a memorial of sorts for the first Church Army USA National Director, George Pierce, who graduated to the heavenly choir, to join the great cloud of witnesses.
We were blessed to hear from several people who knew him and that was the catalyst for the theme of the evening, Be the Change. In the room were people that have been long time partners and others who, for the first time, were hearing about how God is using Church Army USA to bring His Kingdom to the least of these.
The other focus was on a new program that will be released in partnership with Trinity School of Ministry and the bases of Church Army USA where a person can get a certificate of Evangelism. This isn’t an ordinary certificate. It entails fieldwork right along with theory. It gives churches an opportunity to raise up someone in their midst to prepare the church for receiving as well as being a herald for the Good News to the broken and lost world. This is Church Army USA getting back to its roots.
If you missed this banquet, don’t fret! We have included the message of support from Bishop Jim Hobby and you can always join the movement. If you have any questions, thoughts or suggestions, shoot them over to me and I will do my best to answer them. Thank you and Blessings!
