Mardi Gras 2021 ... Hits The Mark

As we set our sights to bring Good News to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, we knew it would be different than any other time we have brought a team to share the Good News.

The mayor of New Orleans cancelled all parades and balls. Of course, there is a pandemic. Then the mayor closed all bars and liquor sales and closed the infamous Bourbon Street and parts of the French Quarter at 7 pm on what would normally be the days where the streets would be wall to wall people.

I was asked is Mardi Gras and the outreach going to happen…my answer …YES!

How did I know something would take place?

Because the Holy Spirit emphatically directed us to go!

I’m reminded of the words in Romans 4:18 “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became…”

The possibility of witnessing on the streets looked bleak, but just as Abraham had a promise from God, we had a directive from the Holy Spirit.

Our perspective and strategy became restructured. Our usual army became a Precision Strike unit of just 55. A precision strike is where a weapon, munitions or special team is implemented to neutralize a particular target.

Our “target” was the broken and empty lives of men and women on the streets on New Orleans.

With all the restrictions, reduced street time, drastically diminished crowds and frigid temperatures this holy bold Precision Strike team became as need sensitive missiles searching to rescue hurting people from the clutches of darkness.


“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

In just two and a half days this specially assembled and anointed team combed the streets and individually found those who needed The Good News!

Miraculously, in this condensed time 555 people were personally prayed with …salvation, healing, recommitments, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and so many other needs received ministry.

There was a time of worship and intercession on the riverfront by Jackson Square bringing a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit amongst those coming to party.

On Valentines Day we were able to share the gospel easily using a specially designed tract “Love Changes Hearts…Any Heart!”

We were privileged to partner with Pastor Steve & Becky Smith and Westpoint Church in Gretna as they hosted our team meetings.

Beyond bringing hope to many in New Orleans it’s time to ramp up the spreading of the life changing gospel in every town and city in America.

I cannot escape the exhortation that came to me almost one year ago …more gospel to more people in more places. The strategy to pursue this was simple

If we cannot do this, then do that. If we cannot go here—then go there! Absolutely refuse to be paralyzed and do nothing.

Paul wrote “making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:16 NIV). He exhorts us to not shrink back but move ahead.

With your prayers joining together with Nancy, myself and SHOM as well as your generous gifts we not only launched Precision Strike Mardi Gras but continue to go forward in these most crucial times.


Scott and Nancy have worked whole-heartedly in evangelism and urban outreach since their conversion in the early '70's. As "missionaries to America", their heart is to reach the lost, minister to the hurting and to mobilize churches to reach out to their own communities. Their commitment to the Lord and their desire to do His will is readily evident to all who meet them. They have been a great asset to our local church.

Pastor Tommy Barnett
Dream City Church

At a time when most American Christians have lost the priority of evangelism, God has raised up Scott Hinkle to reorder our priorities. I pray the church will listen to his message and reclaim our mission to share Christ’s love.

I thank God for Scott Hinkle, who has never forgotten his initial mandate and call. He is burdened not only with reaching the lost himself but also training a new, emerging generation of evangelists to go forth and be tangible expressions of Christ to the nations.

With over four decades partnering together with churches worldwide for community evangelism, SHOM has developed an initiative to help any church reach more people with the gospel.

What is an initiative? -- “A plan or program that is intended to help solve a problem.” Merriam Webster Dictionary

AN INCREASE THE REACH weekend is flexible in structure and presents a positive and proven practical approach to effectively address bringing the gospel to a community in urban, suburban or rural settings. Attention is primarily focused upon two areas.

  1. The great opportunity:
    To meet the challenge of increasing and sustaining evangelism in and through the contemporary American church to reach our community individually and more effectively.
  2. The dynamics and mechanics of a plan to help the challenge.
    The INCREASE THE REACH INITIATIVE focuses upon interactive training with the pastoral team, ministry leadership and key workers in “developing a culture of evangelism.” Priority is given to building a personalized plan for ongoing evangelism in the local community working from “the inside—out.”

A Sunday service of ministry imparting a heart for reaching others is a vital part of the INCREASE THE REACH INITIATIVE.
