Outreach Inc., e3 Partners, Thomas Nelson Partner for 'I Am Second Church Kit'

The campaign kit includes a copy of the book “I Am Second,” a DVD-based study, sermons and more.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Outreach Inc., e3 Partners Ministry, and Thomas Nelson join forces to bring you the I Am Second Church Kit exclusively through Outreach Inc.

“I Am Second is a movement meant to inspire people from all walks of life to live for God and for others,” says I Am Second founder Norm Miller. “The majority of those involved with I Am Second are everyday folks found at businesses, schools, community groups and churches. Those who are featured on the site graciously lend their names and stories so that others might be inspired to find the same freedom and sense of purpose they have found in Jesus.”

Based on the book by Doug Bender and David Sterrett titled I Am Second: Real Stories. Changing Lives, (Thomas Nelson, January 2012) the I Am Second project shares the stories of real people who reached the end of their strength, the end of their control, and found the most surprising truths. Shocking in their honesty, inspiring in their courage, these testimonies are critical reminders that no one is too far from God to find Him.

The I Am Second church campaign kit offered exclusively from Outreach Inc. includes: a copy of the book I Am Second, the I Am Second Conversation Guide and the I Am Second DVD-Based Study, film clips, sermons and outreach tools. Believers will have everything they need to spark spiritual conversations, share their faith stories, and start their own I Am Second groups in their neighborhoods, workplaces, or schools.
