The Holidays are upon us. Most of us look forward to gathering with family and friends, but sometimes our time around the turkey and dressing isn’t always pleasant. Many believers would like to share their faith with their loved ones, but are at an impasse as to how to do it in a way that is intentional, yet non-threatening. Outreach, Inc. has the solution with the launch of the I am Second Church Kit and you are invited to share your own I am Second stories.
“The I am Second movement is designed to inspire people from all walks of life to live for God and for others,” says Eric Able, Vice President of Marketing at Outreach, Inc. “We want your I am Second stories. From now until December 7th just ‘Like’ us on our Facebook Fan Page, mention I am Second, and tell your story, www.facebook.com/outreachinc. This will automatically enter you into a drawing to win one of 5 I am Second church kits to be given away in December.”
The I am Second church kit consists of: a copy of the book, I am Second: Real Stories. Changing Lives, the I am Second Conversation Guide and the I am Second DVD-Based Study, along with film clips, sermons, and outreach tools. This kit will equip you and your church with everything you need to share your faith with family and friends and start your own I am Second group in your church, neighborhood, workplace, or school in the New Year.
Based on the book by Doug Bender and David Sterrett titled, I am Second: Real Stories. Changing Lives, (Thomas Nelson, January, 2012) the I am Second project shares the stories of real people who reached the end of their strength, the end of their control, and discovered the most surprising Spiritual truths. Find out more about the church kit and how you can become a part of the I am Second revolution here, www.iamsecondoutreach.com.
“The celebrities featured on the site lend their names and stories so that others might be inspired to find the same freedom and sense of purpose they have found in Jesus, but the majority of those participating in the I am Second program are everyday people, just like you and me,” continues Abel.
“Hearing the stories of those who have discovered the life-changing power in putting God first is inspiring and encouraging. We are anxious to hear how being second has transformed your life. Go to www.iamsecond.com to hear some testimonies and then share yours with us.”
The I am Second project is the joint effort of Outreach Inc., Thomas Nelson Publishing, and e3 Partners Ministry.
