This is an important day: June 17, 2019. Mark it. This is the day we discover that we are a part of something bigger than we ever dreamed.
Before I ever met Marti, she had a vision. The vision was connected to me although she did not know me at the time. The vision came when someone gave her my album and she saw my picture. She had a vision of me hovering over a vast net, like a circus net, that had no poles and stretched on and on with no end to it. We now know that this was a vision of the Net — Internet — and that it stretches around the whole world, and that our ministry was to be connected to it. This was long before “www” was anything but three w’s in a row.
This is how we know our work has barely begun. At my ordination I was given a portion of the kingdom. That portion started with the dissemination of my music and books and is now known to be including what we are securing globally over the Internet through catchjohnfischer.com. You are now a part of this, both in financial assistance and in boots on the ground discipleship where you have an opportunity daily to share in this portion of the kingdom with your influence of the Gospel of Welcome — Grace Turned Outward.
Our most exciting development is our connection with the next generation and the opportunity to partner with them in a new movement of God in the world — call it what you want, the second Jesus Movement (JM 2.0) or a new revival — it’s happening. As sure as I write this — it’s happening. I just met with a brilliant young Millennial with a PhD from Oxford who has already started an institute for training and stimulating Christians in the marketplace to understand their calling and the culture to which they are called. He was full of questions about JM 1.0 and what he could learn from us. We have already begun a partnership and a sharing of our intellectual properties. This is exactly what we hoped and prayed for. It has begun.
These young leaders desperately need older, wiser influencers who are not tainted by legalism and are unhindered by the politics and the compromises of the Christian subculture. We know who those people are. They are, along with you, people like Os Guinness, Tony Campolo, Randall Ballmer and others who are the voices of reason and compassion in this age of just the opposite. We are ready to expand exponentially.
This is why we need you and why you don’t want to miss this opportunity to be a part of something really big; a global influence for the kingdom of God. And this is why this current firefighting campaign is so important. To stall now would be to lose the momentum we’ve been building with so many parts of the Millennial puzzle coming together on this incredible opportunity to be a part of God’s next big move in the world via the Net.
Our unexpected loss is due to a contributor’s sudden inability to fulfill his $7,000 program pledge. Not withstanding his hardship, the Catch Ministry payment for this program has been mercifully extended to this evening. Thanks to several of you, we successfully met Mark Wolcott’s $1,000 challenge match yesterday, leaving $5,000 yet to raised.
You have the fighting power to come together to raise the required $5,000. We ask you prayerfully to consider making a one-time emergency contribution today.
