  1. Your Man Minute never fails to reach into my chest and squeeeeezzzeee! I have started an outdoor ministry and your intel has been key to my momentum. I have wanted to throw in the towel, but you have always sent a MM to me and links to blogs that keep me moving.

    Thanks

  2. Jason, You are right on with this article. In establishing my churches outdoor ministries we started once a year with a Wildgame Dinner (21 years ago) The church and the pastor came on board and saw how our small church reached out to local sportsmen and women by the hundreds. We next began to do other things that were less successful but all the while building a team of workers and converts. Is it worth all the effort to win just one? I asked God how we could extend our success with the Wildgame dinner and along came the National Archery in the Schools program. Being frustrated by the schools not wanting to let us start that program I called Matthews and talked to Roy Grimes and asked if there was a church program using archery. His son Kris was in school and was developing a curriculum for a program they were going to call Centershot. The year was 2006 and now Centershot is in 3500 churches in 18 countries. Just think if I had given up. Our church has doubled in membership and is moving to a new building and location in September. This is all God’s doing and we praise Him! This year Centershot is doing a National Championship on May 6th in Louisville KY which is the day before the NASP tourney. We plan an outreach to the 11,500 kids that are expected to shoot in the tourney. To find out more and see how people can get involved to to our facebook page at Centershot Ministries or our webpage http://www.centershot.org. Besides my busy Chiropractic practice and my local church I feel God has put me on the planet for such a time as this. Blessings Jason for alll you do!
