NOV 1-10, 2018
This LEAD outreach is open to current North Dakota Assemblies of God kids and youth pastors and their spouses.
Jacob and Julie Bock are Trinity Bible College graduates who were youth leaders in North Dakota in the 80’s. Since that time, they have been highly effective missionaries in Spain, focusing on evangelism in downtown Madrid. Julie Bock has recently passed away from a battle with cancer. They have been some of the top leaders in the area of street evangelism. Their teams' passion will inspire you, their wisdom will train you, and their ministry will challenge you. Missionaries Karen and Kevin Prevost have been working closely with the Bocks for the past several years and will be hosting us as well.
The basis for ministry will be street preaching, giving testimonies, short gospel messages, song and talking with people one-on-one.
The actual trip dates may be slightly subject to change. We anticipate flying out of a North Dakota airport (likely Bismarck.) We plan to leave Nov 1 and fly home Nov 9 or 10. Accommodations will be provided for the evening prior and after. These dates will require pastors to only miss one Wednesday and one Sunday.
The express purpose of this trip is to allow Pastors and spouses to experience raw evangelism and Speed the Light/BGMC up close. The goal is that we will return greater leaders who not only passionately evangelize at home (and train students to do so), but are gripped with a burden for the lost of the world and the importance of giving to Speed the Light and BGMC.
Because of the purposes stated above, this trip is being sponsored in connection with ND Student Ministries and STL and BGMC to cut the price IN LESS THAN HALF! Therefore, the cost of the trip for each leader is only $1000, which essentially covers only the airfare. All other expenses, except food during travel, will be covered.
Churches are encouraged to assist their Pastors and spouses in participating with this trip, if at all possible. Scholarships or assisting with fundraisers to cover the $1000 fee is a great blessing. We know this will prove to be a solid investment into their leaders.
