May 2015 | New Encouraging Monthly Video

Jesse recently had the opportunity to visit Hibernia Baptist Church in Fleming Island, Florida. They have only just recently partnered with, and it is already making a huge impact in their community! Jesse spoke with a young man named Graham, who shared with him that he and his grandfather had been handing out the invitation cards. We were delighted to hear this news because it just re-enforces the fact that regardless of age, anyone can easily and effectively make an impact with the help of the invitation cards.

Jesse also had the opportunity to visit with their worship leader, Will. Will shared how the invitation cards really does help take the awkwardness out of evangelism. He pointed out that even if someone isn't interested in attending church, these cards provide them with an amazing resource through the website!

To make the most of this video, preach an evangelism-oriented message. At the end of the message, hand out five cards to everyone and show this compelling encouragement video. After the video plays, ask the congregation, “How many of you can commit to handing out invitation cards this week?” The entire congregation should raise their hands! Capitalize on this pivotal moment by telling them that next week you'll be checking up on them, to see whether or not they did. We receive regular reports from churches that utilize the cards in this way saying that seventy to eighty percent of their congregation had invited someone to church in the the following weeks!

We have no doubt God will use Graham and Will's stories to motivate evangelism in your church! We are praying with you that many souls will come to Christ as a result.
