Portland 2018 - Pre-Event with Scott McNamara & Chris Overstreet
Pre-Event with Scott McNamara & Chris Overstreet
Join us for a time centered on the presence of God, that is going to prepare the hearts of people to be the expression of Jesus, as we lead up to the main event in September. Our heart at these events is to equip, empower and release people into what God is calling us to do. This will impact the entire Northwest, as we believe we are moving into the greatest harvest the Northwest has ever experienced. Our hearts are to rally around the cross of Jesus Christ, for He alone has the power to save!
Our special guest, Scott McNamara with Jesus At the Door will be leading our Equipping and Training in Evangelism Session. During his time as a full-time evangelist for Causeway Coast Vineyard, Scott asked God to teach him how to become more effective in talking with people about Jesus on the streets. Over the course of 2 years, with God’s guidance, Scott developed and refined an extremely simple method that can be memorized and used by anyone. JAD 3:20 is now a fully-fledged evangelism initiative that is equipping and empowering everyday Christians to actively witness anywhere. At the center of this method is a series of questions that gives Christians a structured framework through which they can engage people in a conversation about Jesus. This tool is called “JAD 3:20” or “Jesus At The Door” because of the simple picture it uses to catch people’s attention.
VISION for Portland 2018 (Watch Promo Video)
"While I was in Sweden at an evangelistic event called Awakening Europe, I stood in front of thousands of people and saw stadium events spring forth all throughout America. The first place I saw was Portland. Already then, I knew that what I saw would not just be an event, but a movement...."
We believe that there will be an impartation for the spreading of the Gospel in America at Compassion to Action: Portland 2018. We have a vision of unifying the body of Christ as we rally around the cross. We want to be a strength to the Church and help train and equip the body to fulfill the Great Commission and to see those who come to Jesus become disciples that go and make disciples. Together, we will reach millions for Jesus!

“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
