Super Bowl Outreach 2016

13 02 2016

This was my 4th Super Bowl Outreach. It was a blessing for me since it was near my hometown of Redwood City, California. Super Bowl City was set up in San Francisco and the stadium was in Santa Clara which gave us access to preach to over a million people along the Peninsula. I have a heart and burden for that area having grown up there myself for 10 years of my life.

Redwood Baptist Church allowed us to use their church van for picking people up at airports and we stayed at the Salvation Army Campground in the Santa Cruz mountains. We were blessed to be able to charter 2 school buses to transport the 92 or so people who were taking part in the outreach. We heard some great speakers such as Dr. Scott Keith from Concordia University in Irvine and Dr. James Renihan from Westminster Seminary in Escondido.

Our team consisted of 13 people and we seemed to be given the best spot in town. We had good foot traffic as well as standing lines throughout the day. Over the weekend our team gave out somewhere in the area of 4,000 Gospel tracts, gave away 2 Bible’s and had around 50 one to one conversations about the Gospel.

One police officer received the Gospel then took a Gospel DVD to give to his kids. We met a couple who professed to be Christians but didn’t share the Gospel themselves. They were convicted and agreed they needed to start sharing the Gospel as well. We met a young man who grew up Muslim in Hong Kong but was sent to the United States for safety after converting to Christianity. He didn’t have a church so we gave his information to a local pastor to follow up with him.

We had a man who stayed around for several hours and we were able to share the Gospel with him more than once. One of the other teams had two make professions of faith which we rejoice in and many thousands received tracts, and heard the Gospel preached. We are thankful for the opportunity to take part in this great effort. Thank you for your prayers.
