GTS Expansion with April 9th Approaching Fast!
Gospel Trick Shot Ministries, Inc. is on the verge of its most aggressive expansion in the 16-year history of the ministry. We praise God for all the people and events that the Lord is divinely orchestrating.
This past month we have been worked on four fronts. GTS RACK Team member Brian Pauley from Ohio attended the Derby City Classic pro event in the Louisville, KY area and represented GTS and BobbleBall.com and made several contacts for Christ. Brian is now working on another GTS Show in Kentucky at a local Christian College.
The "RACK Up A Victory" world tour with Mike Massey, Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman, and Steve Lillis rolled into Carbondale, Illinois on the campus of Southern Illinois University. Hundreds of students came out to the two days of GTS shows with nearly 100 response cards indicating that they wanted to have Chi Alpha Campus Ministry follow up on how to have a personal relationship with our wonderful Savior.
Please pray for this precious follow-up. Then GTS RACK Team members Jason "The Michigan Kid" Lynch and Rodney "Triple P" Fontaine (Pool Playing Preacher) teamed up in Lake City, FL for an outreach working with the Hopeful Baptist Church discipleship team. At the time of this writing we are waiting for the results as they are underway ministering in that area.
With the GTS portable pool table and the publication of But You Must: The Steve Lillis Story
all scheduled to arrive the middle of this month, April is going to be busy. A series of GTS shows with book signings are set to begin on April 4th. Steve will be speaking at the Princeton New Canaan Society in the morning and then will be heading over to New Jersey Convention and Expo Center for four days until April 7th to do a series of GTS Shows with book signings.
Then on April 9th we will have the largest GTS Show ever with World Champions Mike Massey and Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman joining Steve Lillis in a fundraiser complete with video, music, and a live GTS show in the 1,800-seat elevated sanctuary of Calvary Temple in Wayne, NJ. This unprecedented event will hopefully financially fuel our other twelve GTS RACK Team members to fan out into all parts of the world sharing the Gospel and partnering with mission teams already on the ground.
GTS has built relationships with dozens of ministry organizations and several invitations are on the table along with two GTS teams that have already been formed in Albania and Kenya. Please pray for this exciting opportunity to "GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS!" This is the expanded GTS vision while still doing outreach in the USA on college campuses (we have a show at William Paterson University April 10th), billiard events, churches, and other venues. The Lord has provided the people and the tools. We need much prayer and finances to continue working as part of "The Great Commission".
The GTS Albania Team founded by Steve Lillis and Scott Pruiksma in 2008 and the GTS Kenya Team founded by Steve Lillis and Jason "The Michigan Kid" Lynch in 2010 and further trained by GTS RACK Team member Wayne Parker of South Africa in 2012 are both continuing their momentum. Help us, pool players, raise up more teams worldwide in 2013 and beyond! Thanks.
