Reflecting on I Heart Central Oregon and wondering what the impact is of a one-time event. Some would argue that the cost of putting an event on like this outweighs the impact. I guess I’m not totally sure, but one thing I’m confident of is that thousands of people who rarely, if ever, hear the good news of Jesus Christ, heard it last night. Whats that worth? A hundred dollars? A thousand? Ten thousand? More?
What I appreciate about this particular event is that it was hand in glove with helping the poor, serving the community, and showing love in action. The speaker and the band got very little compared to the time and energy they gave. And they did it without question and with pure hearts. So many organizations and churches gave to make this event happen. I think they should be proud of their contribution in planting these seeds.
So when I think of how many churches worked together, how many non-profits were served, how cities came together, this event was worth far more than it cost.
Thanks to Nick and his entire team. They were amazing.
Thanks to Elliot. You guys brought it!
Thanks to the entire I Heart Campaign for seeing this before anyone else did and walking in faith to make it happen.
This is just the beginning. For those reading, what’s next? What do you think? How do we take the momentum that was created and not necessarily try to do something bigger, but something even more effective and life transforming? What are your ideas?
