[This page is intended to provide a general overview. If you need more information please contact me: Bill@sfoi.org 866-646-5683 #1. This page will be updated]
#1 What is the goal of SFOI: for souls at major sporting events hear the Gospel, be provided the opportunity to respond, be ministered to in the moment and be referred to a Bible teaching church in their area for discipleship. [Acts 2:38, 3:19, 5:31, 8:22, 17:30, 20:21, 26:20; 2 Cor. 7:10; 2 Peter 3:9; Rev. 3:19]
#2 How many souls hear the Gospel or at least a life giving Word at a typical event: 50,000 – 100,000 per day.
#3 How many evangelists participate in SFOI events: anywhere from 2 – 100. A college or pro football game can have 2 evangelists and the Super Bowl Outreach 100.
#4 How many evangelists have fans seen at SFOI events in 2018. There are 2 numbers used here:
#1 the number of individual evangelists who participate with SFOI in a given year and #2 the number of appearances each evangelist make. For instance there could be 100 individuals who participate in a year and 50 of them participate twice. That would mean there are 100 evangelists making 150 appearances.
In 2018 those numbers were:
254 evangelists making 531 appearances.
[622 appearances 2017 and 317 appearances in 2016].
#5 What is the 2019 goal for evangelists to participate with SFOI: 500 individuals. [Plus eventually 100 full-time evangelists through the George Whitefield Program].
#6 What is the financial goal to reach 500 and 100 full-time evangelists: $225,000. [SFOI Budget 2018- 3-13-18]
#7 What items are paid for by the budget: SFOI personnel who support, minister to and recruit evangelists, advertising which includes internet and booths at conferences to look for evangelists, training for SFOI event Team Leaders so they can effectively recruit and train evangelists and any other item associated with mobilizing evangelists.
#8 What you are being asked to do: give $100 monthly for 12 months.
#9 What do you receive in return: Weekly Ministry Update sent via email, monthly ministry newsletter; monthly 30 minute prayer time with an SFOI Staff member to pray for items in your life and treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:20).
