Mustang Missions - Simply Driving Souls to Christ...

The late, great Dr. Jim White said: “It’s hard to catch a fish if you don’t have bait on the hook”. If we are to be fishers of men (Matthew 4:19) then perhaps we need to put a little bait on our hook.

Working in children’s ministries for many years we always face the challenge of how to get kids to come to church; visitation, incentives and promotions all seem to yield results but there was always “that kid” who was just too macho to go to church. So one day I was making a follow-up visit in my ‘86 Mustang GT convertible with a young man who insisted that church was for sissies; when he heard the car pull up (was running straight pipes and headers) he said “I’ll go to church, if I can go in that!”.

So began Mustang Missions.

To date 14 children have come to church just to go for a ride.. stayed, heard the Gospel and received Christ as their personal Saviour!

American Muscle is known all over the world.

So it seems that as Missionaries, Evangelists and Pastors visit our church.. they want to go for a ride in the Mustang (or Moostang if you are from Honduras)... So it has began a tradition of a sort to come, visit... go for a spin and have a little fun. Many of these national Pastors and Missionaries have never been in a car; let alone a Mustang GT. It is a blessing to have a time of fellowship with these great men of faith who sacrificed so much to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

Putting a little "Horsepower in your Ministry"

Part of developing this into a ministry program is getting others to participate. Many churches have members that of been blessed to own a cool sports car, musclecar or even a show car; perhaps use those blessings as the bait to win souls for Jesus!

Incentives

We have found that providing an incentive for those children already in church can help boost attendance and participation. The Mustang challenge program allowed us to provide a goal for children to obtain such as taking the winner out to lunch in the Mustang. In 2015, through Slater Road Baptist Church, the grand prize winner got a trip to Disney World in the Mustang! This incentive package brought in a record number of visitors and parents; the two children that were front runners memorized several dozen Bible verses each! So be creative with your incentives and let the kids do the rest!

on Wednesday, September 2 2015
Every year auto manufactures comes out with new models. They offer new features, refinements and performance enhancements; but they all tote one main thing… more horsepower. This may be achieved by putting in a larger engine, making reengineering or adding external assists like a turbo or supercharger; as a Christian we should be the same.. not content with where we are but always looking to making things better. The disciples made this plea to Jesus Luke 17:5  And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. While there are many things in our lives we are to be ...
