This year we will be featuring a special Mission Concert for the Friday evening service with Christian music singer, Steve Green. As a four-time Grammy Award nominee and seven-time Dove Award winner, Steve Green actually started as a Missionary Kid in Argentina. Before beginning his own musical ministry he was part of the Gaither Vocal Band. Steve will be doing some of his songs in Spanish and he will be doing one of his songs with all of the children present that night. Attached is a photo of Steve Green if you would like to use it for your bulletin, newsletter or on-screen announcements.
This is an excellent time to get new people involved who have never attended one of our mission conventions.
The seating capacity at Bradenton First is just under 1,000. The District Mission Council has devised a plan to distribute $20 tickets to our churches for free. The annual church mission report has a form to order these free tickets.
We ask that you only request the quantity of tickets you actually need for those attending the Steve Green Concert. Orders for tickets must be received by Easter Sunday, April 20. After April 20, tickets can be purchased for $20 each. We are not offering tickets to the larger community until April 20th assuming we have tickets available to sell.
This is very important: Seats in the Bradenton First sanctuary will be held for all ticket holders until 7:15 p.m. for the Friday night concert. After 7:15 p.m. it will be open seating to anyone who is present. No one will be permitted to hold seats for those not present after 7:15 p.m. We are planning to have an overflow for video viewing in another part of the building, once the sanctuary is full.
Assistance needed: We are asking all participating churches (if at all possible) to consider contributing $100 to help defray the cost of the concert. The $100 can be sent to the District Office, 2680 Placid View Dr., Lake Placid, FL 33852. Checks should be made payable to Southern Florida District NMI, marked Steve Green Concert. During the service we will also be taking a free-will offering for the Steve Green Ministries. We will be asking every person present to contribute a minimum of $10.
In addition to the amazing music and singing by Steve Green on that Friday night, we will be sharing some tremendously challenging Mission inspiration and information. Our theme is, The Power of the Cross and we ask you to be praying for Gods powerful presence in this service.
Children: We will have special activities for all children (Grades K-5) on Friday night during the service. The children will be brought into the service when they sing with Steve Green. We will also be having a wonderful Childrens Mission Convention on Saturday during our regular convention. We ask for a $5 donation. There will be nursery services for infants through 4-year-old children. Please consider tipping the nursery workers.
Saturday service: Our special Saturday speaker is Bob Prescott, the coordinator of Work & Witness teams involved with the nearly unbelievable resurrection of the Church of the Nazarene in Cuba. Bob has some amazing stories to share. He grew up as a Missionary Kid in Cuba. We will also be blessed with the singing of the very talented choir from Ft. Lauderdale Manor Church. Watch for more announcements and information about the Saturday sessions.
Hotel rooms: There are other community events happening in Bradenton during the time of our Convention/Assembly. We strongly encourage you to make hotel reservations immediately.
