ReCharged and Ready To Go: Report
I hope you are well and encouraged in the Lord. Although the year is winding down, ministry continues full steam ahead. This past weekend, we hosted the third annual It Is Written evangelism training retreat, ReCharge. Our guest presenter was Elder Henry Wright, and it was powerful. Hundreds of people gathered online to hear Dr. Wright speak on preaching, and we were all blessed. I know you’ll be blessed by Yves Monnier’s report.
He writes, "Everything was in place for ReCharge, the annual It Is Written Evangelism and Church Growth retreat.
☑️ Topic: Preaching that changes lives—check.
☑️ Guest speaker: Dr. Henry Wright—check.
☑️ Date: December 13-15—check.
☑️ Location: Cohutta Springs Conference Center—check.
Everything was ready and then, of course, COVID-19 showed up.
We considered canceling this year’s ReCharge for about two seconds and then decided to do it virtually like we had done with Hope Awakens, our April evangelistic series. What happened next blew us away. Transitioning to online allowed over 500 individuals representing 34 conferences to register and participate. About half of the registrants were pastors and lay pastors, and most of them are a part of ACTS 20:21, the one-year evangelism initiative from It Is Written.
These numbers are not the real story, though."
