In 2013, TrueLife.org was blessed to have the opportunity to show a 10-minute video at the annual meeting of the Utah-Idaho Southern Baptist Convention explaining how God is using TrueLife.org to encourage evangelism and invitation in the local church. Due to the overwhelming response from pastors in attendance, the Executive Director of the Utah-Idaho SBC, Rob Lee, extended a personal invitation to Jesse Connors, President of TrueLife.org, to speak at the 2014 annual meeting.
“This is a dream come true for me!” Connors said, “I love Mormons and the lost in this area so much and desperately want to reach them with the true Gospel.” In hindsight, it appears that reaching Mormons and the lost in this area is exactly what God had in mind. Due to the success that churches in Utah and Idaho had utilizing the resources that TrueLife.org provides in 2013, the Utah-Idaho SBC agreed to help financially sponsor churches that wished to partner with TrueLife.org but were financially unable to do so. As a result, over 30 churches have partnered with TrueLife.org and many more have expressed an interest in learning more about how TrueLife.org helps assuage common fears associated with evangelism.
One of the greatest blessings TrueLife.org experiences while attending state conventions is the opportunity to hear from pastors in the area that are seeing God change the atmosphere in their churches. The Utah-Idaho SBC ’14 was certainly no exception to this rule. Many pastors shared tremendously encouraging stories about how God is using TrueLife.org to motivate their people to take the Gospel outside the four walls of their church without fear. In addition, many came by the booth to request additional cards as they had already run out of the previous year’s supply!
TrueLife.org wants to extend a special thanks to Executive Director, Rob Lee, for his support and encouragement in helping TrueLife.org fulfill its mission of helping churches in Utah and Idaho more effectively engage in reaching the lost in this area with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ! We hope that our relationship with the Utah-Idaho SBC only grows and strengthens throughout the coming years as we labor together to reach the lost with the love of Christ.
