Chapel Report – Summer 2014
What a blessing to be serving such a gracious Father during this time. As we hear of tragedies and unrest across the world, I am reminded of the importance of our ministry. My heart is heavy for those who haven’t heard the Good News, thus making our job so important… reaching more children for Jesus!
It is hard to believe that we are only ONE generation away from being a secular nation. Yet saying that, unbelieving children are one encounter away from an entirely new life with Christ. In Released Time we are able to touch the lives of elementary age children and be that encounter that will change their lives forever and what a privilege it is.
Joan and I recently attended the 100 year celebration of Released Time in the USA. We joined 150 other directors, teachers and board members with hearts that desire to share the Bible with children in our public schools. What a testament that there are more than 1,000 other programs in over 32 states, educating more than 350,000 students and changing lives.
We were encouraged by the faithfulness of those who have gone before us and for those working alongside us! In Released Time we have the opportunity to encourage, educate and empower our students to change their lives for Christ. Let us listen to the voice of God when he lays it on us! Don’t let the opportunity to impact these precious children pass!
We are each vessels created for His use, how can you be used to help further His kingdom through Released Time? Join us, don’t let the next generation be the one that misses out on the opportunity to spend a lifetime with Jesus! Join us in spreading the Good News!
