Teams of volunteers will be out Saturday morning, April 2, to offer special invitations to local residents to attend the East Georgia Go Tell Crusade, April 17-20. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. on the Boneyard in downtown Swainsboro to receive invitation cards to begin knocking on doors inviting residents to attend the crusade. The invitation handout will continue on Saturday, April 9 and Saturday, April 16.
“The goal of the campaign is to knock on every door in Emanuel County to personally invite everyone to attend the spirit-filled crusade,” says Russell Collins, Crusade general chairman. “We will be reaching out to local residents by visiting their homes and handing out invitation cards at community events in preparation for the Crusade.” Volunteers are needed to assist with the campaign and are asked to meet at the Boneyard Saturday morning.
The East Georgia Go Tell Crusade is a grass-roots to bring revival and Christian Unity to the East Georgia area, according to Russell Collins, Crusade general chairman.
“We have a vision of people of all races and backgrounds joining together for week to bring the message of God to those who do not attend church regularly. As part of the crusade, there is also an emphasis on youth with a number of youth speakers and a pizza party on Wednesday night of the crusade,” Mr. Collins said.
The Crusade committee selected Rick Gage as speaker for the weeklong event. Rick Gage is the Founder of Rick Gage GO TELL Ministries in Greater Atlanta.
