First up. We do not believe the effectiveness of aiding local churches through Gospel Meetings has passed and we want to help churches who think they cannot afford or cannot get a man who will hold a meeting for them. Contact us if you are in that position or know of a church that is, TJI@TheJenkinsInstitute.com.
Thanks to all who help make Scoops happen, who help keep us up to date and informed so we can help each other out. We do this as volunteers and do our best, but know we often get things wrong. Scoops only happen when you share information you know with us so we can share it with others. So, again, thanks.
