My wife will be the first to attest to the fact nothing can make me complain more than not having the right tool for the job. In fact, I’ve been known to completely avoid a job until I have the right tool to accomplish the job. I know, at least in my experience, starting a job without the right tool is a recipe for frustration and unsatisfying results. I find this to be true well beyond household repairs or improvements, to do lists, or whatever task you might have throughout the day. I think it is also true when we think about evangelism and mission. I have avoided building relationships with others who don’t know Jesus because I felt ill-equipped.
Most of the time, God calls us to our own neighborhoods and existing relationships. We want to help you feel confident in the place that God has placed you.
Enter the Bridge BBQ trailer.
I love when Jesus called Levi in Luke Chapter 5 and the first thing that Levi does is throw a party to introduce Jesus to his friends. These are the people Levi already has a relationship with. They are his co-workers, neighbors, and associates.
Jesus didn’t send Levi off far away to do mission – he helped Levi realize the mission was all around him. Levi takes up the mission and uses an extremely simple but effective tool; a party.
Everyone loves a party and it is my belief, followers of Jesus have the best reason to throw a party. What if we became a people that threw amazing parties and helped build relationships with those outside the faith family?
That’s why we’ve developed the Bridge BBQ trailer. This trailer is equipped with just about everything you need so you have the right tool to throw a great party in your neighborhood. Best of all… it’s free for every fearless follower to use!
There are some boundaries we’ve put in place but we are happy to walk you through them. The process is really quite simple. First, make sure your party fits the intended purpose of the trailer.
The intended purpose of the trailer is for you to build relationships in an intentional way with people who do not profess a faith in God.
Second, go to fearlessfollower.org/bridgebbq to reserve the trailer for the date you plan.
Finally, host the party and build kingdom relationships. Sure, there is absolutely more to it. You’ll want strategy, prayer, planning, and people to help you with it, that’s why we are here. We want to help you; to walk with you through the process, so together, we can see people come to faith in Jesus.
Go ahead! Take the first step. Go to fearlessfollower.org/bridgebbq and reserve your date. If you still have questions, shoot me an email. I’d love to answer any questions and make sure you have the right tool for the job.
Here to serve you on mission,
