Wherever you go this summer, you will probably run into high school or college students that you wish were connected to a movement, or who you believe could start one.
All you need to know is “Call Pat” at 1-800-678- LINC (5462).
If a local team doesn’t have the capacity to service requests to launch a new movement, there are teams who can launch and build from a distance. So, whether the person asking is a high school, college, graduate, ethnic, or international student, an athlete, or someone in the military, Pat can connect them to someone who can help them get connected or start a ministry.
Years ago, Mike Tilley held up a sheet of paper representing a request to start a ministry on someone’s campus. He said we used to get hundreds of such requests a year. After a pause, he slowly wadded it up and tossed it in the wastebasket. That was our answer then. Thankfully, not today.
All you need to do is see yourself like the woman at the well who said, “Come see a man who told me everything I ever did…” (John 4:29a, NIV) She pointed them to the One who could help and many Samaritans believed that day. (v. 39).
If you have read this far, would you take one moment to pray this prayer: “Lord Jesus, lead me to one person this summer whom you have raised up to start a ministry on their campus that I may pass on to those who can help them.”
It may sound like a cliché, but it’s not. Pat is standing by at 1-800-678-LINC (5462).
