I don't make requests of you as readers. So this is the first. And I hope you'll hear my heart...
I want STORY to help church leaders become more effective at communicating the Gospel - the greatest story ever told.
This is a non-profit organization, so I've got several bottom lines. One of them is this -- I want to help 400 urban pastors experience this event. These are leaders in Chicago's hardest areas who probably can't afford to come with the economy the way it is.
This is our first year, and we haven't reached break-even in registrations yet. So I've got a big question for you... Would you consider purchasing several tickets - or even one - so that we can invite 400 leaders for free?
If you'd like, you can purchase the tickets [here] for as low as $169/each for a block of 4 or more. Just enter the word "SCHOLARSHIP" in the comments section at the end of the process.
If possible, I'm hoping you can act before October 1 so that we have time to invite these leaders.
Thanks for considering it!
