I am one of 144,000 4 Tucson

Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.
Revelation 14:1

Just a few weeks ago, during a 4 Tucson presentation to a group of Christian leaders, I made the statement that while reading the Bible I and came across the verse above.  I told them, “I believe we can find 144,000 Christians in our metro Tucson region that will be unafraid to identify themselves as Christians and will be willing to get involved in making a difference in our city.”

One of those leaders skeptically said, “I don’t believe there are 144,000 Christians in all of Tucson, much less that would get involved.”

Maybe he’s right.  I don’t believe it!!!

Let me introduce you to 4 Tucson.

We see 4 Tucson serving as a catalyst to engage the Christian Community in the needs and dreams of Tucson to bring about spiritual renewal and prosperity locally and globally.

All my life I have taught that the Bible has an answer to every problem that faces mankind. The problem is that the Bible is not indexed.  You can’t just look in the index to find the page that gives you the answer to your particular problem.  It often takes knowing enough of God’s word to understand God’s principles and precepts and how to properly apply them to your situation.

4 Tucson is a 501(c)3 that is trying to mobilize the Christian community to solve problems in our city that no one seems to be able to fix. We believe the Bible offers positive solutions that can be implemented to the benefit of all citizens in Tucson.

Our mission is to serve as partner with every sector and domain of society based on common love, common goals and the common good to make Tucson one of the most livable cities in the world, allowing each partner to determine the part they should play.

Christians have a lot of interests, many talents and varied spiritual gifts.  Some Christians will be highly motivated to work on one issue and have no interest in another.  The Bible teaches that God has placed His people with all the necessary gifts and abilities to solve all the problems our city faces.  The key is getting together to develop workable solutions and implement them through churches.

4 Tucson is also going to raise money for city-wide issue advocacy, strategic church planting, a media campaign to promote Christianity, and to purchase unwanted church buildings for future church plants.

Now back to my skeptical friend.  Can we find 144,000 Christians in Tucson?  Would you be willing to get involved with other Christians to develop lasting solutions for our city?  Would you be willing to invest just $100 in 2010 to become one of 144,000 Christians in Tucson that want to make a positive difference in our world?  This is only $8.33 a month, if you’d like to make monthly contributions.

If you would like to be “One of a 144,000 Christians 4 Tucson,” go to our website at sign up and be counted.  Together with Christ, nothing is impossible!

Mark Harris, Founder and President of 4 Tucson
