2020 has certainly been a strange year. Thank God for His faithfulness.
Aurora will NOT be gathering for our annual Mardi Gras Outreach this year. It’s been a heartbreaking decision for our core team. We prayerfully believe it’s the better part of wisdom not to meet this year. Our concern is less about street ministry, and more about transportation, bunking, feeding everyone, etc. We’re choosing not to risk creating a spreader-event.
At this point, some camps are gearing up, but have not made final decisions. Below are links to their websites/registration pages if you’d like to inquire about participating with them:
- Barnabas (Dave Cain): https://barnabascamp.wufoo.com/forms/m4vp8pp0486w13/
- Vieux Carre (Jerry Johnson/Mike Laird). (Registration is not open available)
Our intention is to return in full-strength and numbers in 2022. God’s counting on us, brothers. 2022 may seem like a long time away, but it will be here before we know it. PLEASE PUT FEBRUARY 25 – MARCH 1, 2022 ON YOUR CALENDAR. Let’s keep one another and our mission in prayer until we see each other then.
Mighty warriors, let’s stand together in Christ against the wicked one in our nation and world today. “Who knows, but for such a time as this you are here” (Esther 4:14). May God redeem 2020 and amaze us in 2021. And may we be found faithful throughout.
Life. Changing. Mission.
This is not church-as-usual. It’s not your typical mission trip. This isn’t just another men’s rally. This is what happens when you follow Jesus into the heart of New Orleans during Mardi Gras to show His radical love in the middle of a huge party. In the process, God opens our eyes to places in our lives that need some chiseling, sanding, and restoration. Grace gets in your face through powerful preaching, incredible worship, and a chance to get shoulder to shoulder with some spiritual giants who also just happen to be normal, everyday guys just like you.
Bottom line: God shows up. Now it’s your turn.
