One of the ways the Baptist Student Ministries at the University of Texas in Dallas is trying to share the hope of Christ with its campus through Texas Hope 2010 is by conecting with I am Second. I am Second is an evangelism campaign that launched a few months ago in Dallas that included television ads, billboards and some other media-driven efforts. In the second wave, the campaign appears to be starting to put some feet on the ground.
Robert Hooker tells me that 25 UTD BSM students were part of the 125 UTD students from seven religious organizations who were trained to use the I am Second campaign to share their respective testimony about the hope Christ has given them. This month, the students are handing out Bibles, booklets and copies of the Jesus film.
May God work through the students’ efforts at UTD. If you haven’t seen the I am Second spots, I’m glad to share the Josh Hamilton story with you. I haven’t watched all the I am Second pieces, but there’s something about Josh Hamilton’s story that is captivating.
