As I was browsing the May/June 2008 issue of Outreach Magazine today I was interested to see their section entitled 5th Annual Outreach Resources of the Year Awards. They have identified ten different categories of resources and a panel of judges have evaluated and selected their top choices in each category. Sounds pretty interesting and it is.
It’s especially noteworthy that one resource won top honors in three of the ten different categories! – 3:16 The Numbers of Hope
Max Luccado’s newest project, 3:16 The Numbers of Hope won top honors for overall Outreach Resource of the Year, top resource for Small Group Outreach, and also for Personal Evangelism. The judges stated that “it should be no surprise that we found it to be the 2007 resource with the biggest impact on evangelism and outreach in America—and the greatest potential to continue that impact. Whether it was the book, churchwide campaign, small-group curriculum, devotional book or the companion CD, 3:16 provided an opportunity for churches to share the story of salvation and hope.”
Well, that’s a pretty powerful recommendation from some people who ought to know about such things. So, if you haven’t considered using this resource for some type of outreach strategy in your church and community, you need to. Check out the new 3:16 The Church Experience for reaching out to your community through small groups.
Until next time…share the journey and enjoy the ride!
