CABOT – More than 500 people gathered for the second annual Cabot Wild Game Expo at Cabot High School Saturday, March 2, and eight people made decisions for Christ.
“The expo shows the love of Jesus to hunters and those that like the outdoors,” said Brett Tullos, men’s ministry leader at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Cabot. “What makes it different than some outdoor ministries that happen in neighboring communities is that it is open to the whole family, not just men. The family is the building block of the community, and we want to invest in that, too.”
Hosted by First Baptist Church, Cabot, in Mount Carmel Baptist, Cabot, the expo is a one-day community outreach event featuring a vendor fair, door prizes, a silent auction, grand prize drawings and activities for children.
“What is God-honoring and unique is that we have two churches joining forces in this ministry,” said Terry Bostick, senior pastor at First Baptist, Cabot. “This is about God’s kingdom work opening the door for Jesus in the hearts of hunters.”
Scott Porter, founder of Trophies of Grace, spoke at the expo and gave an invitation. During the expo, members of Gideons International distributed New Testaments and Slip Discs Flying Gospel Tracts featuring the plan of salvation.
“The event shows how a hunting expo could be an effective means of communication to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus,” said Ken Kincade, mayor of Cabot. “I know the expo addressed the needs of our community in a very positive manner, and my only wish for the expo is continued growth and success.”
