This past Saturday, July 23, 2016, Community Outreach Ministries, along with several local high school football coaches hosted the first Kickoff for Christ!
The event was held at Brentwood High School football stadium. Over 325 players and coaches from 8 area schools showed up to share the evening in preparation for the fast approaching football season!
Corky French, COM’s Senior Minister, emceed the evening.
Gordon Kennedy, who wrote and recorded “Change the World” with Eric Clapton, corroborates with Ricky Skaggs, Garth Brooks and others, provided the music.
He was fantastic!
Will Hester and Ingle Martin, local high school football coaches gave their testimonies. Buddy Norton, a former minister and head of Buddy Norton Ministries, spoke.
As we closed the evening, 26 young men came forward to either accept Christ or rededicate their lives! Wahoo!! They walked down the stadium aisles in front of their peers to stand up for Jesus!
Smoothie King and Buddy Norton Ministries provided free Smoothies for all who were there. A special thanks goes out to them, as well as Amos Jones, President of Brentwood’s 12th Man Club, for all of their help in making this event such a success! Plans are already underway for another event like this one next year!
