ArkALMIGHTY Launches Across America
Grace Hill Media
STUDIO CITY, CA -- ArkALMIGHTY, a nationwide good deeds program that matches up the needs in churches with the talents and skills of the members of those congregations, officially launched recently.
Inspired by Universal Pictures’ Evan Almighty and the book Conspiracy of Kindness: A Refreshing New Approach to Sharing the Love of Jesus with Others by Pastor Steve Sjogren, ArkALMIGHTY is designed to enable youth groups and churches to easily get involved in practical and tangible volunteer outreach via the Internet. Gathering the needs of church attendees, these requests are compiled on a Craigslist-type Web site (ArkALMIGHTY.com) administered by the church. Then, the members of the congregation can easily search through the needs and find ways they can help.
“In my many years of doing projects to creatively urge the Church to become outward, ArkALMIGHTY stands in a class by itself,” said Sjogren. “Ultimately, effectiveness and results needs to be measured – changed lives. With ArkALMIGHTY, change is happening already!”
Over 400 churches, including Willow Creek, have already signed up for the ministry through ArkALMIGHTY.com, and thousands more are expected. “The idea of doing acts of random kindness and expecting nothing in return was an idea that was close to the very heart of Christ (Matt. 6:4),” said Paul Braoudakis, Communications Director of the Willow Creek Association. “I’m thrilled that churches all over the U.S. will be participating in the ArkALMIGHTY campaign this summer. I can think of no greater way that the church can BE the hands and feet of Christ than by doing selfless acts for others that reflect His love.”
Partnering with Grace Hill Media on ArkALMIGHTY are Youth Specialties, Outreach, Inc., the International Bible Society, and the Willow Creek Association.
“We’re honored that some of the most respected names in Christian ministry have come aboard ArkALMIGHTY,” said Jonathan Bock, President of Grace Hill Media, the company that launched the campaign and Web site. “The potential for changed lives is limitless as ArkALMIGHTY strives to help people right where they need it most.”
