In celebration of Rev. Delbert Hooge’s 75th birthday, he chose to come up with a project that will help start new churches this year. Thus, BLESS 2020 was launched. – Franz and Ads Garcia
1. WHAT IS BLESS 2020?
BLESS 2020 is a vision of starting 20 new churches in the year 2020 using the BLESS Program.
2. WHAT IS THE BLESS PROGRAM?
The BLESS Program is an outreach ministry project that allows interested HOSTS to reach out to indigent, street, tribal, out-of-school, or orphaned children with the gospel of Jesus Christ by using a functional literacy and basic education program. With it, children gain a mastery of rudimentary Math, Science and Social Studies. In addition, it teaches them that God created them and has a plan for their life. It gives HOPE to the hopeless by assisting with literacy at this important time of life!
3. HOW CAN THE BLESS PROGRAM BE USED TO START CHURCHES?
BLESS teaches the children four hours a day, fi ve days a week, for 20 weeks while the parents are ministered to through Bible studies once a week for 20 weeks. Statistics tell us that about 3 family members are saved per child enrolled. This allows for a solid Biblical foundation to be laid down for all the families involved which in our experience has given rise to a house church and ultimately an organized church.
4. HOW CAN WE BE A PART OF THE BLESS 2020 VISION?
If you have been praying for a church plant or a new extension in your area then the BLESS 2020 Vision may just be the answer to your prayer. Just send your Letter of Intent, Ministry Profile, and Outreach Operational Plan to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch with you as soon as we receive your information.
