Tell Me Rallies

“I believe that God wants to take every person who knows Jesus and comes and fills our churches week after week and specifically and powerfully engage them in sharing the Gospel. He wants to speak to us, use us, and bless us, to Tell Someone. It could be, and I pray it will be, an unusual and overwhelming move of God among us to hear from Him and to be used to speak His word, to be His witness, to someone who we know needs to know Jesus. The power of God and the transforming grace of Jesus is more relevant than the newspaper you may read in the morning.  It tells of old news. What Jesus brings is up-to-date, right where we are, saving touches of the Lord and He wants to use us. Tell Me – Tell Someone. It’s more than a book of acts in the Bible; it is acts of God among us today. May 2017 glorify Jesus and see more souls come into His kingdom than ever before.” Prayerfully yours, Jim Futral (excerpt from Dr. Futral’s overview in the 2017 Church Design Handbook) Tell Me Rallies will take place all across Mississippi, January-March, 2017, in combination with your local association and the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board. Dr. Jim Futral, Executive Director/Treasurer, MBCB, will be the featured speaker at all rallies. The target audience is both believers and non-believers. The Tell Me Rallies have a 3-fold purpose: First, believers are encouraged to pray for and invite lost people to the rallies to hear the gospel. Second, believers will be inspired to learn one gospel conversation and thirdly, believers will be asked to commit to share their faith with someone in 2017. You can also view all available materials for this year’s theme at:  www.mbcb.org/tellsomeone We look forward to seeing YOU at your Rally!

January 24th, 2017, GTBA Rallies:
