Thank you for hosting the Stand and Tell Revival Campaign! The Sunday Celebration service is sure to encourage believers to (1) quit focusing on the adversity and begin appreciating the gift; (2) take limitations in stride and with good cheer. How? By just letting Christ take over and become His Hands and Feet to others through Missional living! He said, “My grace is enough; it’s all you need” (2 Corinthians 12).
In collaboration with Dr. Jacob, you are being sent this and other related web pages at least three weeks ahead of the scheduled campaign. This gives you and your leadership ample time for site and service order preparation, as governed by the Holy Spirit and time sensitivity.
Please have adequate stage lighting and amplification. This would include a lapel mic for Dr. Jacob and mobile mics (or the equivalent) for interaction between Dr. Jacob, the actor(s), and/or the congregation. Please make sure computer and projection equipment (or equivalent) are accessible wherever/whenever Tell THE Story needs it and that it can accommodate a Windows Laptop Computer (includes USB Flash Drive, PPP, MP4 and/or JPG files). If possible, Dr. Jacob would like to review the laptop computer content with the sight and sound tech an hour ahead of the servicde.
At the discretion of the Lead Pastor (and/or delegation), please have the service order prelude, invocation, welcome, vocal and/or instrumental music (in whatever genre your congregation is used to), open altar, offering, and/or announcements ahead of the service content below. During the service (content below), a remote/laser pointer (for PPP) will be needed for Dr. Jacob. As necessary, please synchronize the lighting, sound, and content of the PPP, MP4, and/or JPEG file with the activity on the platform. Please have a benediction and/or postlude by the Lead Pastor (and/or delegation) after an altar call by Dr. Jacob.
The Holy Bible story text, Matthew 9:27-38,
may be told many timesuring the service as the Holy Sprit leads.
The Lead Pastor needs to be prepared to Tell THE Story (read the text) to the congregation (in a manner and rendering they normally hear from you) before introducing Dr. Jacob;
Then, the Evangelist will be prepared to Tell THE Story; the hymn "Pray" and the "Lost and Found" Challenge may be presented at this time;
Then, the Evangelist will be prepared to continue with a sermon (with possible PPP). Loss of sight, like any adversity, was devastating. Knowing how they felt, Dr. Jacob cried out in faith to the Great Physician with the blind men of old, "Have mercy on me!" Jesus heard his (their) lament and touched him (them) with His healing words: "Become What You Believe! Interaction with the Lead Pastor and/or congregation may include some or all of the following:
During a possible Meet & Greet, the congregation may be asked to Tell THE Story to each other. During this time (or ahead of time), the Lead Pastor may be asked to recruit some actors for a possible dramatization.
If actors have been recruited, the Evangelist will direct a Tell THE Story drama consisting of mime actors and simple props (prepared ahead of time).
The Evangelist will be prepared to Tell THE Story (with intentional errors) to three (a child, a teen, and an adult) chosen from the congregation) in conversation with him sitting around a table (including correction as the Story is told).
God-willing, Dr. Jacob will have an altar call with an (MP4 on PPP) Invitational Hymn "Pray". He will ask "Stand In The GAP" participants to lead the way! During this time a "Lost & Found" Challenge may be presented. Other music is ready (on PPP) if the hymn "Pray" is used earlier in the service).
In mutuality, Dr. Jacob and the Lead Pastor reserve the right to modifiy the content on this page. Lead on, O King Eternal!
