Today is Monday and it is a day to reach out to the hurting and lonely incarcerated in Hobbs, NM. I will spend around 6 hours ministering to those in lock-up 23 hrs a day plus tonight a service with around 100+ men who are in protective custody.
As I have been praying about what and where God wants this ministry to go. He has revealed not new revelation, but new inspiration for what He has for us.
I know doing the conferences/seminars/revivals (what ever your church calls them), Ad4j Radio Network, and Possess the Land School of the Bible, we also have additional work this ministry is to do.
By September, we will have our new Ad4j Youth Center. I know you will want to be a part of this awesome expansion. It will provide ‘5th Quarter Activities” for teens after the football games and after basketball games. We will have ‘study hall’ time as well as a “church” for young people.
No, our goal is not to pull youth out of other churches, but to encourage participation of those not locked into a youth group. We will have snacks for after school, hot dogs and hamburgers along with games and activities. We will have praise and worship videos going and a time of Bible Study.
(May I add, we are not going to look like a rock concert, but a Holy Spirit inspired ministry for young people.)
I know God is in this. We will also have our “Christian Library” for the community to come to check out Christian based books not found in other libraries. We will ask for donations from supporters to provide the books and funding.
I know this will bring in students of Jr and Sr High levels together to praise the Lord and have fun together. Mentoring will become a great part of this ministry as there is so much violence, drugs, sexuality, gangs, etc. in our small city of only 2,400.
We must permit our older students to get involved in ministry to the younger ones, have adults to provide the men and women that are absent from their lives at home and guidance.
Won’t you pray with us as God leads us into this section of this awesome ministry He has begun! Pray about how you may be able to help us reach out to the hurting youth of this area of Texas!
