The annual Judgment House outreach sponsored by the Norton, OH, Grace Brethren Church (pastors Bob Combs and Jeff Bogue) this year resulted in nearly 400 people making decision for Christ. The Akron contingent of the 4:12 Commission participated. Here is a short excerpt from their report — read the entire report (with photos) by clicking here:
Judgment House is a main outreach event presented by Grace Church in Norton Ohio. As a Halloween alternative, Grace church presents a clear, laid out depiction of the gospel through a ten-scene walk-through play.
A story line captures the attention of the audience while teaching them the story of Christ, with a clear presentation of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ depicted so that many might come to know Him personally. With the help of 500 people, thousands of lives are changed.
Within this ministry, 412 has had many opportunities to use their gifts. All of the students had a chance to counsel, sharing the gospel again and again with others. Some students guided tours through Judgment House while others acted in the scenes.
It has been wonderful to see God work through our lives to encourage the believers while evangelizing. During the counseling times we have had some stretching times staying up until all hours of the night, but knowing that 385 people made first-time decisions to follow Jesus Christ as their Savior has made every struggle well worth it all.
