Real Encounter rally sees 69 saved

High-flying stunts on bicycles and motorcycles helped share the gospel in a fun and effective way during a Real Encounter rally March 27 in Pratt, Kan.

The riders from Real Encounter, based in Springfield, Mo., led assemblies in three school districts—Pratt, Cunningham and Skyline, just west of Pratt. First Southern Baptist Church in Pratt organized the events.

A total of 1,100 people attended the evening rally, which had an evangelistic focus. A total of 69 people were saved and 41 people rededicated their lives to Christ.

KNCSB held three Real Encounter events in late December 2012 in Hutchinson, Kan., Topeka, Kan., and Ralston, Neb.

A total of 909 people attended. Nineteen people accepted Christ as their Savior. Ten rededicated their lives to Christ and two received assurance of salvation.

In mid-October 2012, a Real Encounter rally in Salina, Kan., attracted 2,100 people and 300 were saved.

Kansas-Nebraska Southern Baptist churches now have the opportunity to receive money from KNCSB to pay part of the cost of holding a Real Encounter event in their community.
