Churches continue to share stories about their “Just One” Sunday. In addition to joining with other participating churches in praying for more laborers for the harvest, Crossroads Christian Church (Newburgh, IN) also used the three weekends before the Nov. 14 emphasis to challenge every Christ follower in the church body to identify “Just One” person with whom they would build a relationship, share Jesus, and include in some expression of Christian community. CCC plans to continue this emphasis on making disciples and raising up Christian leaders throughout 2011.
During its services that Sunday, Greencastle (IN) Christian Church displayed pictures of the 10 people from the church currently serving in full-time ministry or international missions. After a time of prayer for them, an invitation was extended for others to commit their lives to Christian service. Five high-schoolers, two college students, one Bible college graduate, and one couple (with three children!) responded to the challenge.
