USA (MNN) — How would you like to kill three proverbial birds with one stone? A Mark Schultz concert for Christian Resources International will do just that in Highland, Michigan next month.

Executive Director of CRI Jason Woolford says it’s a concert that will benefit the ministry. “It’s going to create an opportunity to help us spread awareness of what we do for a ministry. It’s going to give people an opportunity to ask Christ into their life that night. And, you’ll be able to hear a radical testimony about what God did in an eight-year-old boy’s life.”

Woolford adds, “People are going to be able to come and hear about why we do what we do. 122,000 people [around the world] are giving their lives to the Lord every day. And the startling fact is: the majority of those people are attending churches with a pastor who doesn’t even own a Bible.”

CRI sends used Bibles and other Christian resources to those pastors, churches, ministries, and Christian libraries around the world. “We’re giving people the opportunity to not only have a Bible, but to open doors to be able to share salvation with people and have a tool, God’s Word, to be encouraged by His Word.”

Woolford says the concert will be more than a fundraiser. The Gospel will be shared. Even if you might not be able to attend, you can still help. “We’re encouraging people…to buy tickets even if you can’t come. You could buy those tickets and bless somebody who wouldn’t ordinarily come to a Christian concert. It’s a great evangelistic outreach night.”

Your investment will allow someone who can’t afford the $19 ticket to not only enjoy the concert, but to hear the message of salvation.

Woolford says last year, “Somebody in Australia…said, ‘I’d like to donate $1,500, and I’d like it to go to the purchase of [concert] tickets.’ Over 100 people attended. One of those who attended said he was going to take his own life that night. Instead, he came to the concert and gave his life to Christ.”

The Mark Schultz concert takes place Saturday, October 26, at 7:00pm at Cornerstone Church in Highland, Michigan.
