Jesus Summer is a three-year plan to mobilize the Body of Christ to impact the streets of Chicago. Our mission is to introduce Jesus to the communities in Chicago. We are partnering with most of the largest ministries in the country and the churches in Chicago.
What should we do as the body of Christ in America?
Chicago’s death toll this year is over 561 homicides and the number grows every week. Nowhere is America holding more teenage funerals and having more gun deaths. Period. A small city may lead with 50 shootings, but the life in Chicago is unbearable for its young residents.
In John 13:35 Jesus tells us: “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another”. The Body of Christ should show our commitment to Jesus and evangelism by supporting the overwhelmed church in Chicago. Imagine being a pastor in Chicago and your phone rings every so often to hear your usher was killed on the day playground near her house, or the young man from your youth group was shot on his way to church because his uncle fought someone the night before. Can we be committed to doing our Christian duty by caring about this situation on American soil?
A spiritual war is going on in Chicago. Satan is snuffing lives out and the response to the problem is small by government and resources. When you look back over your life and your grandchildren ask did you help during the war days of Chicago, is your response going to be, “I was busy with my own affairs,” or “I got involved and we went and did something when very few would.”
We have a lot to offer to solve this problem:
We can offer our presence. If we show up with a 60,000 army for Jesus we can change the land.
We can own the cause. You can be a soldier for the poor. Tell people to come and personally support Jesus Summer. It will cost upwards of $2 million to properly do the mission.
We can give to the mission of Jesus Summer. Take personal responsibility to fight against the killings through prayer, personal involvement and powerful investments of money.
We believe Jesus will show up if the Body of Christ unites for a great reason. We unite for youth unity, worship and prayer. Can we unite to fight a real enemy Satan? Can we stand for a cause that has measurable outcomes? The killings go down and stop. Fight for the poor that may not look like you at all
This is an excellent cause.” The media calls Chicago “Chi-Raq” because the killings often exceed the casualty numbers in the heat of the Iraqi War.
Imagine Jesus healing the land in Chicago: it is possible and an excellent work for all to join in on.
