With the 2020 presidential election just a few months away, two friends from a small church in Alabama have started a special campaign that is pointing people to Jesus.
Friends Joyce Hubbard and Martha Sikes put together the Jesus2020 campaign as a means of encouragement in these unprecedented times.
"People need Jesus with everything that's going on," Hubbard told Fox News. "He's the only one that we can count on. He's the one that keeps his promises. He's already the winner."
"If everyone would just focus on Jesus right now, everything would just fall into place and we wouldn't have the problems we have," she continued. "He's the only way."
The campaign features Jesus2020 yard signs which can be ordered on the Jesus2020 Facebook page.
Over 5,000 Jesus2020 signs have been made and shipped to California, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and other U.S. states.
The signs are printed at Wells Printing in Montgomery, Alabama. Additional items for sale include Jesus2020 T-shirts, magnets, and decals.
The campaign’s headquarters is in Sampey Memorial Baptist Church in Ramer, Alabama, where both friends attend. The church re-opened in May following COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
"We don't have to be some megachurch. All it takes is a spark and we want to set fires everywhere," Hubbard said. "We want Jesus's name out there."
Many churches as well as entire neighborhoods have requested the Jesus2020 signs because, "once one person gets them, everyone wants one,” Hubbard said.
"It's been awesome! It's uplifted people so much. People are just looking for something to cling onto. Not the signs itself, but just Jesus. I mean that's what we need,” she added.
According to The Christian Post, the organizers plan to run the campaign for as long as needed, even after the presidential election is over.
“2020 doesn’t end until December 31, so we’re going to do it as long as we feel it’s needed,” Hubbard shared.
She also explained that the campaign is not affiliated with any political party.
“Our focus is on Jesus,” Hubbard asserted. “This is not political. It’s not denominational. We’ve had all denominations; all races of people all want signs.”
She continued, “We feel like Jesus is so important. He’s been left out of so much and has been pushed out of so many things that we just feel like … we want Jesus out there … forefront in front of everybody’s thoughts.”
Whatever the outcome is for November’s election, Hubbard added, “Jesus is always the winner.”
“He’s always the one that’s going to keep His promises; He’s the one who’s going to lead us,” she concluded.
