The Ozark County Ministerial Alliance will sponsor a fall crusade at the Gainesville High School stadium Sept. 29 and 30 and Oct. 1. Services will begin at 7 o’clock each evening.
“We are excited to bring local Christians together in this event with local pastors preaching and singers and musicians from local churches providing the music,” Alliance President Betty Stanley said.
Pastor Mike Dillin of Gainesville First Baptist Church will be preaching in the opening service. Pastor Joe Gaddy of Liberty General Baptist will preach Thursday night, with Pastor Gale Wooten of Mammoth Assembly of God closing out the services Friday night.
Preparation for the crusade includes a concentrated prayer effort already underway in local churches. “We have enlisted teams of people who may be physically unable to attend to focus on praying in their homes during the services,” Stanley said. “We recognize that prayer is the key to the success of this crusade, and we are encouraging all Christians to pray for these special services.”
Stanley said planners have tried to include representatives from as many churches as possible in the event. In addition to the preachers, singers and musicians, others will be involved as ushers and in other areas as required.
“Our prayer is that local Christians will join in this united effort to begin a spiritual awakening in our local churches and communities,” Stanley said. “We urge everyone to attend and bring others with them.”
Seating will be on the stadium bleachers, or you may bring your lawn chairs.
