Fifty years ago a group of men went to Montana to share their faith in Christ and forge a group of people who would pray for revival in that state. One of those men was Richard Halverson, the man who led me to Christ. Halverson was the pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church in suburban Washington, and later chaplain of the U.S. Senate.
This week a larger group is headed to big sky country to sew new seeds of faith. I am privileged to be among those who will be speaking in several Montana cities.
There are many things that lobby for our attention. Some commit to politics; others economics; and still others want to make money and buy things. We are going to be talking about our faith in Christ and how we came to be a follower of his.
Please pray for our efforts. Read about it at montanaawakening.org. Believers and unbelievers will be in the audiences. Our goal is to encourage those who believe and lead those who do not to Christ by the power of his spirit; all else pales in comparison. This matters; so many other things do not.
