13 Nov 7 Project Reaches Over 2000 Teens
Pathway Community Church (Jackson, Mich.) brought the 7 Project to three local schools on Wednesday, November 7. They did assemblies in East Jackson Jr/Sr High School, Kidder Middle School, and Northwest High School.
Messages concerning making good choices in life were give concerning violence, bullying, drugs, alcohol, dreams, and scholastic achievement. Kurt Cullison, former NFL player Brian Pruitt, and the band Attaboy presented these messages to over 2000 teens in these schools.
At the evening event 111 decision cards were returned, with 34 first-time decisions to follow Jesus. Contact information for follow-up was provided to youth ministries, marking a cooperative effort involving four churches in our community.
Brent Liechty (right), youth pastor at Pathway, wrote, “Our little church came through with flying colors. Praise God for His faithfulness through difficult times. This has been a huge win involving over 90% of people attending our church.” The “difficult times” refers to the death of Tanya Hardaway, wife of senior pastor Scott Hardaway. Her funeral was held two days prior to the 7 Project.
