‘Courageous’ Film Outreach Leads 1,000 Police Officers to Christ

The movie Courageous had an incredible impact on men across the United States. Many men were moved to take their families back for Christ as they watched the story of a police officer who commits to Christ and to being a better father following the sudden death of his daughter.

Jaron Ministries’ outreach, Code 3 International (Christian Officers for Discipleship and Evangelism), challenged law enforcement in Fresno, Calif., through the film. Jaron’s Rob Carter says they developed a program called “Give a Cop a Ticket,” which had a profound impact.

“For the six weeks of the movie’s running in theaters, we ended up being No. 1 in all of North America for box office sales just promoting it to law enforcement,” Carter explains. “We saw God set up 20 follow-up Bible studies.”

While that itself was an incredible answer to prayer, Courageous is now having a profound impact around the world. Carter just returned from the Philippines and says: “We showed the film to about 4,000 officers and saw nearly 1,000 come forward to receive Christ as Lord and Savior in response to the film.”

Local churches are now providing follow-up care to these new believers. Carter says it’s not stopping there.

“They are now working with local churches in Manila to continue the work—to take the movie to every law enforcement headquarters and show it to their department.”


New CLEVELAND, OH Church born

CLEVELAND (BP) -- North American Mission Board missionary Zach Weihrauch and his family came to metro Cleveland with no money or people for a church plant.

For Weihrauch, he had all he really needed -- God's call to the Cleveland Heights community.

Weihrauch hopes the Gateway Church Heights will become a tipping point for a church planting movement in a city that desperately needs one. According to the Association of Religion Data Archives, only 5.5 percent of Cuyahoga County residents, where Cleveland is located, belong to an evangelical church.

Food Pantry Loses Federal "Food" Aid Because of Prayer

SEYMOUR, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana pantry can no longer distribute federal food items because it asks clients to pray, and the agency cutting off the supply says it's merely complying with state rules.

Paul Brock said he will not change the way he operates Community Provisions of Jackson County because he never requires a client to pray with him or one of its 45 other volunteers.

"We ask them if they want to pray with us, and if they say 'No,' we still give them food," Brock told The Tribune for a story Monday .

Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana administers the federal program for the Indiana State Department of Health and ensures compliance with guidelines by food pantries. Spokeswoman Carrie Fulbright said the guidelines were set by the federal government.

"The guidelines are no religious (activity) or teaching can be required for providing services," she said. "We have to go off what the state says."

Because many food pantries have ties to churches, the state and Gleaners have suggested to faith-based operations that they offer brochures or establish a separate room for prayer while complying with regulations.

Raquel Welch: I think we’ve gotten to the point in our culture where we’re all sex addicts, literally. We have equated happiness in life with as many orgasms as you can possibly pack in, regardless of where it is that you deposit your love interest.
