USA (MNN) — Music and missions will be coming together to send Bibles and Christian teaching tools abroad. While it’s a few months away, it would be a great time to put it on your calendar because organizers say it could be a life-changing experience.
Christian Resources International is teaming up with Christian singer and song writer Mark
Schults in October for a concert that will do several things. First, it will provide music that will help point you to Christ. Second, it will be an event that will encourage those in attendance to get more involved in ministry. Thirdly, it will help raise support for CRI.
Executive Director of CRI Jason Woolford says his ministry collects new and used Bibles and Christian teaching tools from people like you. “We’re able to share, send and sow God’s Word to those around the world who simply can’t afford it.”
To date, Woolford says, CRI has sent more than $261 million worth of Christian material all over the world. As they do, Woolford says these resources do more than help people understand more about God. He says it helps them in, “Setting up lending libraries — especially in Bible colleges — and then we go in and preach and when we’re done we usually leave up to $365,000 of God’s Word behind.”
Schults will be in concert in Highland, Michigan October 26 at Cornerstone Church. Schults is hoping for good things. “Songs can be motivating and inspirational and can call the church to action in a way that’s pretty special.”
Because Schults writes what he calls “story-songs”, “people will walk out of there and say, ‘you know, this is almost a marker for me of where I am in my faith and where I want to go.'”
While not everyone reading this can attend the concert, everyone can join in and help provide donating your used Bibles and Christian books. Schults says it’s a responsibility of the American church. “We have been given so much to give to those in need and those who are hungry and thirsty for God’s Word and so this concert may be one of the greatest gifts we can give to our brothers and sisters around the world.”
