Metro Bible Church,
On Saturday, April 30th of 2016, Metro Bible Church will host its first annual “Run for the Nations 5K” The goal of this event is to mobilize people to help meet physical, educational, and spiritual needs in their communities and across the globe.
Our prayer is that this 5k would be a great tool for missions mobilization and not simply a fundraising event. This year, the funds we raise are devoted to see the gospel go out to our local, communal and global initiatives.
Our global partnership will be Village Schools International (VSI) in Tanzania, East Africa. VSI uses the platform of education to spread the gospel. They have built their first college and have the goal of having 51% of the student population be female! This is a tremendous vision that will transform their culture. Our prayer is that our 5k will raise $10,000, which will give 40 girls a college education at $225/year.
We are asking 100% participation from our church in this missions outreach. Begin praying now about how you might take part in the planning and serving of the 5k. Please see the attached document for a general list of jobs and timeline for when to accomplish them. In the next two weeks, we are looking for three people in particular to give leadership to the Marketing Team, Sponsorship Team and Race Day Registration/Coordination.
We are asking everyone to:
- Pray continuously for this effort as well as VSI.
- Find one sponsor at a local business.
- Fulfill one role in the race coordination/preparation.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter as we partner together for the sake of the nations.
