See How Your Prayers Really Worked!

God answered your prayers for this Mardi Gras Invasion in New Orleans.

It was a great season of harvest! This was our 38th outreach to the Mardi Gras where over 1 million people come from all over the world to party in nearly every way imaginable.

God has taken what could be called a "moral sewer" and turned it into a spawning ground for miracles of new life, healing and greater vision for ministry.

What took place there was fueled by your partnering together in prayer with us. Thank you!!

James tells us "The effective,fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."(James 5:16). We saw that truth in action.

Everyday our small army of about 300 jointly led by Chris Mitchell and The Rock Family Worship Center and SHOM spent time praying and worshiping God being freshly filled with His Presence before heading to the streets.

They were broken up into smaller teams covering the streets of the infamous French Quarter.

The words of Psalm 37:23 "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord" came alive.

God often designs witnessing situations custom made for you. I was able to share and even pray with a Jewish college student from New York, a man playing the same type of trumpet I played all through school and as I was standing off Bourbon St a young man from Dallas started up a conversation that ended in our praying together.

Each day literally hundreds of people were prayed with individually for salvation, healing, recommitment and every need imaginable.

We held an outdoor prayer and worship rally with at least 1500 people in the midst of all the partying on the riverfront across from Jackson Square. The Holy Spirit's presence was so real after a brief invitation a young man came forward for salvation who appeared demon possessed. After prayer and being ministered to he received Jesus as Savior and his countenance was lighter and smiling.

In addition to people being reached on the streets, the Mardi Gras Invasion also served as a hands on training giving our team first hand victorious experience in sharing the gospel with others. They discovered the joy of being used by God to minister and will take this back to their communities multiplying the Good News.

Your prayers made a huge difference!!

Thank you again for giving of your precious time to pray with us. Your prayers and generous gifts help us take Good News where it is desperately needed!

We pray God's greatest blessings for you!


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.
