The prince of preachers, Charles Spurgeon once said,"When we preach Christ crucified, we have no reason to stammer, or stutter, or hesitate, or apologize; there is nothing in the gospel of which we have any cause to be ashamed." Those are powerful words as we seek to equip Christian high school kids to advance the gospel in a challenging, Christ-hating school environment. Many of whom don't really know where to begin in proclaiming Jesus Christ in their area of influence.
On Wednesday, December 2nd Sports Outreach Northwest launched the Breakfast of Champions to help encourage these kids and to provide a place for them to invite friends to hear the glorious gospel. We started with 15 kids from 3 of the 4 high schools in Hillsboro. Our anticipation is that the number will grow as word gets out and we effectively figure out rides as many of the kids don't drive. In short, we are very excited as we've been dreaming of starting this outreach for 5 years.
The group will meet each Wednesday at 7:45am to 8:40am at Godfather's pizza in Hillsboro. This location is close enough to allow kids to arrive to their schools on time. All high school students of various interests are welcome. Our format is 3 worship songs, a short message, breakfast, and fellowship time. We have a number of moms helping out and are building a team to fill up the worship schedule. My first message was on why we should study the Bible which will be followed up on truths about Jesus.
