Note to Lead Pastor:


Please begin the service (after Prelude and Invocation) with your normal welcome, announcements, etc. Then introduce Dr. Jacob. After he presents "Aspects of Listening to the Bible Story" and "The C.O.R.E. Principels of Tell THE Story," please be ready to read to the congregation (in a rendering they normally hear from you) the following text below. Please plan the offering (play an offetory video) between the story being "told with hymns in conversation" and Dr. Jacob's sermon. God-willing, Dr. Jacob will have an altar call just before we celebrate those you believe have exemplified Missional living.


In addition, per your discretion , please assign mime actors and have simple props ready for the dramatization of the following text.


No rehearsal is necessary.


Please have all concerned plan to meet with Dr. Jacob 30 minutes (sight & sound tech one hour) before the service is scheduled to begin.


Please have adequate stage lighting and amplification (lapel mic for Dr. Jacob and mobile mics (or the equivalent) for interaction between Dr. Jacob, the actor(s), and/or the congregation.


The Holy Bible Story text will be told four times during the service. Please prepare to sing the hymns below during the fourth sequence, as "told with hymns in conversation." Sing the hymns, per the "cue from Story" below, in the musical genre your congregation is used to as a congregation, solo, group, or choir.


Recording is permitted and encouraged.


There are those in your congregation that you and your leadership believe are model disciples of or Lord. This service is an opportunity to Celebrate their ministry. They may be a child, teen, and/or adult. You and the leaders of you church have observed (not judged) these mature Christians to bear the fruit of making disciples.  It is obvious that they are Regular Everyday Active Christians Helping (REACH) their neighbors. The end result is that these people have helped connect others, as led of the Holy Spirit, to a meaningful relationship with our Lord by hiding the Word of God in their hearts and interceding in prayer. Each of them may be called "God's Missional Trophey"! Please plan to review this list of names you compile with Dr. Jacob when he is with you on-site. Please ask each one you chose to compose a testimony (brief please) that you (or they) can share with the congregation in this service. Prepare some kind of certificate (or other memento) they can have a s a memory marker.

Hymn: I Know Whom I Have Believed

Cue from story: "It happened. They saw."

Words and Recorded Music provided below

TTS Sunday Cele - D. W. Whittle
00:00 / 00:00

1. I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.

But “I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”

2. I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart.

3. I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

4. I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

5. I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.


Hymn: There Were Ninety and Nine

Cue from stroy: " sheep without a shepherd."

Woods and Recording of Music provided below

Sunday Cele - Elizabeth Cecilia Clephane
00:00 / 00:00

1 There were ninety and nine that safely lay

In the shelter of the fold,

But one was out on the hills away,

Far off from the gates of gold--

Away on the mountains wild and bare,

Away from the tender Shepherd’s care,

Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.


2 “Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;

Are they not enough for Thee?”

But the Shepherd made answer: “This of Mine

Has wandered away from me.

And although the road be rough and steep,

I go to the desert to find my sheep,

I go to the desert to find my sheep.”


3 But none of the ransomed ever knew

How deep were the waters crossed;

Nor how dark was the night the Lord passed thro'

Ere He found His sheep that was lost.

Out in the desert He heard its cry--

Sick and helpless and ready to die;

Sick and helpless and ready to die.


4 “Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way,

That mark out the mountain’s track?”

“They were shed for one who had gone astray

Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.”

“Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?”

"They’re pierced tonight by many a thorn;

They’re pierced tonight by many a thorn.”


5 And all thro' the mountains, thunder-riv’n,

And up from the rocky steep,

There arose a glad cry to the gate of heav’n,

“Rejoice! I have found my sheep!”

And the angels echoed around the throne,

“Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!

Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!”


Hymn: Rescue The Perishing

Cue from story: "On your knees!"

Words and Recorded Music provided below

Sunday Cele - Fanny Crosby
00:00 / 00:00

1 Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,

snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;

weep o'er the erring one, lift up the fallen,

tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.



Rescue the perishing,

care for the dying;

Jesus is merciful,

Jesus will save.


2 Though they are slighting Him, still He is waiting,

waiting the penitent child to receive;

plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently.

He will forgive if they only believe. [Refrain]


3 Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter,

feelings lie buried that grace can restore;

touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,

chords that are broken will vibrate once more. [Refrain]


4 Rescue the perishing, duty demands it.

Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;

back to the narrow way patiently win them,

tell the poor wanderer a Savior has died. [Refrain]

1 Hark! ’tis the Shepherd’s voice I hear,

Out in the desert dark and drear,

Calling the *sheep who’ve gone astray, [*lambs]

Far from the Shepherd’s fold away.



Bring them in, bring them in,

Bring them in from the fields of sin;

Bring them in, bring them in,

Bring the *wand’ring ones to Jesus. [*little]


2 Who’ll go and help this Shepherd kind,

Help Him the *wand’ring ones to find? [*little lambs]

Who’ll bring the lost ones to the fold,

Where they’ll be sheltered from the cold? [Refrain]


4 Out in the desert hear their cry,

Out on the mountain, wild and high;

Hark! ’tis the Master, speaks to thee,

“Go, find My *sheep where’er they be.” [*lambs] [Refrain]
