The 2020 GA National Fair was not to be, but we are looking forward to 2021! Time for prepare!
Over 4000 people heard the Gospel Story at the 2019 Georgia National Fair Wordless Book Tent Ministry and 1022 made professions of faith! 2020 saw no conversions at the fair because there was no fair! A dark time indeed and a reminder that our time grows short to witness to those who are lost. Our team is now preparing for the 2021 fair. We will soon be doing trainings, arranging for tent workers to tell the Story, and working with local businesses to provide critical support. You can be an integral part of this ministry! You can use your voice to execute the Lord's command to spread His Gospel to the "ends of the earth." Jesus will come as a thief in the night. No one knows the hour except the Father. Let us be found doing work for His kingdom when He comes!
How does the Fair Ministry Tent Work?
The 2021 Georgia National Fair is October 7th-17th. To effectively equip the Wordless Book Tent each year, we need volunteers to man the storytelling stations. We can't be sure of what restrictions we may have to use to accommodate any social distancing mandates, but normally, it looks like this:
8 Stations inside (8 storytellers), three shifts a day, = 24 x 10 (days of the fair) = 240 workers!
Out front, People to invite fair-goers inside. 2 - 3 (fresh voices) each shift = 60 workers!
For Spanish speaking volunteers, one worker each shift. Three a day x 10 = 30 workers. In addition, one outside each shift for = 10 workers. Usually the weekends are the biggest need for Spanish workers. Its hard to know when is the best time, so we must be ready all the time!
As you can see, The Wordless Book Tent is a huge production. I am simply the coordinator. For the ministry to be successful, I need people who are concerned for the lost of this world to share the Gospel. If you are looking for a way to reach the lost and experience mass evangelizing, Please sign up to work. The training is free; however, you need to contact me to get a training set up. Check on this site for trainings already scheduled. I do offer training year round except during the fair, of course.
Have You Heard the Story?
Well, have you? If you've been to the Georgia State Fair recently, chances are you have. Once a year, a small little tent is set up to accomplish a big purpose. It is filled with people ready to tell The Story. So, what exactly is it? "The Story," as we call it, is much more than just a story. It is the Way, It is the Truth and It is the Life (John 14:6). It is the reason we are here and the most important thing. We are talking about God, the Creator, and His plan of salvation for mankind. (John 3:16). If you are someone who wants to know "The Story," you can read all about it. If you are someone looking to get involved in this ministry, browse around and see how you can get involved!
