Job Description

This is for a DVD that will be shown to churches across Nebraska. This series is set up to be like an in-depth news story, along the lines of 60 Minutes or 20/20. After each statement there is usually a video clip of an interview, so the voiceover should sound like it is leading into those comments.

It’s Happening In Nebraska- Series 1

Nebraska’s Heart City Has a Heart to Reach Souls

Voiceover – Against the scenic backdrop of cliffs and pine trees is a town that likes to call itself “America’s heart city”. For the people at Valentine Assembly of God the heart of their church has become reaching lost souls. How can a church of less than one hundred touch their community and their world? Pastor Dale Williams believes it starts with a heart that puts God first.

Voiceover – The church was able to give over thirty-two thousand dollars to missions in 2005. They also ended the year with an excess of four thousand dollars in their missions fund. Only two years earlier they had struggled to give half that amount.

Voiceover – Pastor Williams began to teach and have the small groups in his church go through teachings on the principles of scriptural giving and acting in instant obedience to God.

Voiceover – Long time church members, Dave and Joann Nelson, also began to see the impact of those teachings.

Voiceover – The people of Valentine Assembly of God have become extravagant givers. Pastor Williams is seeing an unprecedented ninety percent of his congregation tithing.

Voiceover – At the beginning of 2005 the church decided it would raise the money to build a church in Bangladesh. They would also send a team to Bangladesh to help with construction. The cost of the building alone was ten thousand dollars.

Voiceover – The church has also expanded their vision close to home. They purchased a new van that they use for ministry as much as possible. They have also started to reach out to the American Indian community.

Voiceover – Pastor Williams says that by the end of the day well over four thousand dollars had been raised.

Voiceover – The Valentine church is continually asking, “Where can we invest these dollars to get the most souls?"

Voiceover – People from all over the US and the world send letters to Valentine Nebraska each February to have them stamped and re-mailed to love one’s. At Valentine Assembly of God people are sending out a greater message of love. The very heart of the Valentine church is to see people come to know Jesus. It shows in how they live and in how they give.

The Power of Partnership

Voiceover – People have a vision to plant a church in their community. Existing Churches give resources and finances to see their vision become a reality. Everyone is blessed as the Kingdom grows. (Emphasis) That is the power of partnership, the principle of sowing and reaping. For the people of River of Life Community Church this process started when God moved them to St Paul, a town of twenty two hundred people in central Nebraska.

Voiceover – For Joe and Lori Shader the journey began eleven years ago when they moved to St Paul.

Voiceover –God used a Bible study to begin to speak to this group about their purpose for being in St Paul. Because most of the group attended Abundant Life Christian Center in Grand Island, Nebraska they took their vision to Pastor Steve Warner.

Voiceover –This little group began to meet together and ask God what it should look like if they were going to reach the city of St Paul and that surrounding region. God began to give them a vision.

Voiceover –Not only did God bless Abundant Life Christian Center financially, they also began to see new people come into the church.

Voiceover –Another church, in Red Cloud Nebraska heard about the River of Life church plant and felt God leading them to join in.

Voiceover – Red Cloud Assembly of God moved forward with their pledge of three hundred dollars a month, knowing God would provide.

Voiceover – Even more increase is what River of Life pastor Tim Rust sees for the future.

Voiceover – Churches and individuals have partnered with New Life Assembly of God to remodel an old hardware store into a temporary church. Later the building will become a youth center in St Paul.

Voiceover –The power of partnership. It's God working in us, and each of us working with God and with one another, all to see His Kingdom expanded.

A Love Note From God

Voiceover –My God will supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory. (pause)
For Dean Ross, pastor of Walthill Assembly of God in Walthill Nebraska, a reminder of God’s love started with events that most people would view as insurmountable.

Voiceover – As thirty thousand dollars in medical bills piled up, the Ross’s relied on God to supply their needs. God was about to show the Ross’s His loving care and provision.

Voiceover – The town of Walthill also came together as part of God’s blessing.

Voiceover – Pastor Dean says that God’s provision for their needs had started years before they knew they would be in such a situation.

Voiceover – Pastor Dean says that beyond the finances God has used his wife’s illness to restore relationships with people in the community and to help them realize how much the community appreciates the work that they do.

Voiceover – What a great reminder for us all that God can take an overwhelming circumstance and use it to show us that He cares.
