Mathetis Inspires our Youth to Invest in Evangelism

Paul summed up Elijah’s anxiety best in Romans 11:2-5. “Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel? ‘Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life.’ But what is God’s reply to him? ‘I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.’ So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.”

There may be some today who share in Elijah’s anxieties over the people of God, and rightfully so. Our young people seem to be leaving in droves as congregations across the country are closing their doors. Yet, in a world which seems to grow darker every day, let me tell you about the “remnant” of young people I’ve had the chance to meet this year.

In mid-January, over 1,000 young people arrived in Savannah, Tennessee to attend Evangelism University. EU is an annual weekend event designed to train youth group leaders on evangelism. This year, the attendees studied from Mathetis’ “The Reaching Series,” during their elective classes to learn how to respond to difficult questions that come up during a Bible study.

Jerry Elder delivers a $15,000 donation from CYC to World Bible School.

Let me also tell you about the 12,000 souls who attended the Challenge Youth Conference in Dallas, Texas and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and gave $15,000 to further the work of Mathetis. Over 500 attendees registered on Mathetis during the weekend event.

Our young people see the importance of evangelism. Whether they are studying to share their faith with others, using their financial blessings to spread the Gospel or actively using tools like Mathetis to grow the Kingdom of God, they see the importance of telling the world about Jesus.

This issue of ACTION! highlights multiple ways you can invest in evangelism and join the “remnant” who is committed to sharing the Gospel of Christ with the world.

Same Mission New Goals

There’s a song we often sing entitled, “Higher Ground.” The words of the song begin like this…I’m pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining every day; Still praying as I onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Angels in Heaven Rejoice!

We thank all of the Christians who began studies with these precious souls. And we thank our donors who helped fund these feats.
