Santuck Flea Market

August 7, 2017

Saturday, SOS Events team members, led by Wes and Beth, had a booth at the Santuck Flea Market in Wetumpka, Alabama. The market is held on the first Saturday of each month, March through December, from daylight until 2pm. It is closed January and February due to the colder weather. The market is held rain or shine. 

Saturday 50 decisions were recorded. What a wonderful harvest of souls. Flea markets take place all over the USA in nice weather. It is a great opportunity for soul winning. We need to take advantage of these opportunities. Your community may have the same kind of events yearly, monthly or weekly. Look around for them and join with SOS Events to see many people trust Jesus as their Savior.

Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Growth

SOS Events continues to grow. Display boards, tracts and other materials are used all over the USA and in several foreign countries. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and leadership.


1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

New Event

May 27, 2016

There is a SOS EVENTS Training in Pennsylvania tonight. Two couples plan to attend to learn how to present the gospel using the “3 Things God Can Not Do” board and the “ABC’s of salvation” to win people to Christ. Next Friday, June 2nd, they will go to a First Friday event in their hometown to use what they have learned. 

SOS EVENTS is once again expanding and growing. God truly is blessing the ministry with new events and new soul winners. To God be the Glory. He has answered the prayers of the staff and workers as we called upon Him to continue to grow and expand SOS EVENTS Minisry.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Event Idea

February 2, 2016

An idea for an event is a Block Party. Invite neighbors and have food, fun and fellowship. It does not have to be long. Two or three hours.

A church in Lakeland, FL had a Block Party last weekend and about 30 people attended. Three people were saved. Two children and one adult. 

That is a great percentage. Ten percent of the people there were saved. 

SOS Events calls events like that “Churchyard Events”. The great advantage is that the new converts are already familiar with the church and do not feel uncomfortable to come to church as they have already been on the property and have met some of the church members. Praise the Lord for “Churchyard Events.”

Luke 14:23  And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Today is an Event

January 21, 2016

Event Evangelism, Inc is the legal name for SOS Events ministry and all of our witnessing takes place at events. The definition of an event by the founder of SOS Events ministry is “An event is when you get up in the morning.”

Everyday is another opportunity to witness. Young mother at home with small children, witness to someone on the phone or a neighbor or delivery man. Student, witness to your unsaved fellow students. Business man or woman, you have many opportunities to witness as you work (make sure you do not do it on the boss’s time). Elderly, even in a nursing home you have people around you to witness to for the Lord.

Today is an event. Give someone a tract, tell someone your testimony or use the simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” approach which takes less than 2 minutes. Make today your special event.

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Church Yard Evangelism

April 22, 2015

Church-yard evangelism is one of the most powerful growth vehicles for any church, if done right.  The problem is, most could be a great deal more effective than they are; think about any of these activities you have been involved in over the years at any church you have visited.  Here is a list of activities / events commonly sponsored, or supported by churches, either near, or on their church property:

  • Yard sales
  • BBQ
  • Car Shows
  • Events for Children (games, rides, etc…)
  • Fall Festival
  • Egg Hunt
  • Fish Fry

There are many more different kinds of activities that could be listed.  These events usually reflect the social fabric and interest of the sponsoring, or participating church.  Many times these are planned fund raisers.  However, the goals also typically evolve around introducing new people to the church through some form of interaction, with the hope of leading others into a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Additional benefits include helping introduce existing Christians, new to the area, to your church; help them find a new church home.  Other benefits include fellowship among participating church members , and exposure for the church in other indirect ways.  Most would agree, if others accept Christ (souls saved) as their personal savior “at the event”, then this would be like having your cake, and eating it too…   … a win-win-win.  Praise the Lord!  Any kind of church-yard evangelism can always be about seeing souls saved.  In fact, why plan one if that’s not included? People need the Lord!

SOS Events is about showing others how they can come to expect a harvest of souls at almost any event.  Tom Curtis often reminds others that it’s not him, his wife Carolyn and other SOS workers that save souls, but it’s faith in action based on their surrender to a relationship that allows Him to do His will.  Write to info@sosevents.org, if you would like more information, or help with your event.

Psalm 72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

Churchyard Event

March 29, 2015

One of the most successful places to win people to the Lord is at an event held on church property. The two best time of year to hold a churchyard event is Easter time in the spring and Halloween in the fall.

The church provides for children an annual egg hunt and each year the crowds grow. Yesterday an “egg”stravaganza took place at a church near Brandon, Fl. 

It was an exciting event. Several church members came to SOS training and worked in the booth and Alice one of SOS missionaries went to oversee the event. 34 decisions were made, both children and adults.

The best thing about a churchyard event is that the converts are already on the property. They know where the church is, they have met church members who showed friendliness and they get an invitation to church. Also, they have filled out a decision card with name, address and age so the church has a record of their salvation and can visit the convert and family in their home.

If your church has events on the property and would like more information email info@sosevents.org or call the office at 813-494-7512.

Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Opportunity

“Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.”
Napoleon Hill
There are opportunities to serve The Lord with SOS Events winning people to Christ where you live. Summertime is a great season for soul winning. Yard sales, farmers markets, social gatherings in your town.
All you need is the guidance of the Holy Spirit, some training, a display board, some tracts and 3 willing people and you can see many souls get saved. Don’t miss this opportunity. The rewards will be in Heaven when The Lord says well done.

Matthew 25:23
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things:enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Churchyard Event

SOS has several ways a church can reach their area with events on the church property. Usually these events take place on Saturdays and then the converts are already familiar with the church and a great opportunity to invite them to services on Sunday.

Go For The Gold

January 31, 2014

Flea Markets are a gold mine for evangelism. SOS Events now use Flea markets to train others and win the lost. SOS are seeing great success for presenting the gospel. The salvation leads are given to churches who are willing to do follow up. SOS Events also has a great follow up decipleship program. We are always looking for new churches and people to add to our team approach to bring the lost to Christ. When a church desires to learn another method to reach the lost give SOS a try. Training is free. Info@sosevents.org OR PHONE 813 494 7512.
Proverbs 11:30
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.
