Thank you for hosting the Stand and Tell Revival Campaign! The Sunday Commission service is sure to expand regular everyday active Christians to help reach their neighbors. "The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood" (John 1). "Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously" (Matthew 10).
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, Luke 10:29b-37,
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 continue with a sermon (with possible PPP). Like the Wounded Traveler on the Road, Dr. Jacob had been attacked. Satan had used addiction to him. The priests in his life avoided him. Oh, but then, a Good Samaritan gave him first aid and took him to an Inn. He and the Innkeeper, like a good neighbor, made him comfortable and treated him kindly. Jesus commissioned Dr. Jacob to "Go, and do the same!" 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 (MP4 on PPP) Invitational Hymns "Break Dividing Walls", "Let The Walls Come Down", and "Just Drink The Water" (about the Other Samaritan) .
The service often ends with a march and tribute to God and Country for giving us the freedoms and opporutnity to be Missional!
In mutuality, Dr. Jacob and the Lead Pastor reserve the right to modifiy the content on this page. Lead on, O King Eternal!
