The "Big Game" Outreach

The eyes of not only the country, but also a lot of the world are focused each year on the "Big Game". In some ways it is another holiday. Families get together to watch the game and eat! Let’s use this event to change the lives of teenagers forever!

The "Big Game" Outreach Party is a great event to invite students who might never come to a regular church or Christian event. Here’s one example of how it might work for you:

A group of students from a campus ministry decided that they would take advantage of the "hype" of the "Big Game" to share Christ with students in their community.

They went to several of the youth leaders in their area and told them about their idea. The youth leaders agreed to help pay for the pizza and they promoted it with their students. The event was held at the high school and over one hundred students showed up, heard the gospel and a handful indicated that they trusted Christ!

The follow-up and involvement of these new believers into the body of Christ was made easier as the campus club and the churches took the initiative to nurture the new students.

All you need is a neutral site, some good food, visible promotion of the event and the "Power to win! Outreach Party." Have fun and be creative. Students love it and it’s easy to include those who don’t know Christ!
