Each year, 3 For 1 teams up with several area churches in the Vidalia/Lyons area of Southern Georgia to present the "Light Your World" School Tour and Youth Rally. By the mighty power of God these churches╩were able to take 3 For 1 into ten area elementary, middle and high schools this year to present a "positive impact" assembly to the students.
╩ "Of course we can't give an altar call at the schools because of the laws in our country, but we sing the same songs that we would sing at a Christian event and we pray that kids who may never hear the gospel anywhere else will get something out of the program and a seed is planted." says original group member, Holly Robinson-Blanton.
3 For 1 invited each group of students to╩the "Light Your World"╩youth rally where they ministered along side Christian Contemporary Artists, Out Of Eden of Nashville, TN. This year╩about 1,000 students attended the concert and most importantly╩18 decisions for Christ were made.
Robert Toombs Christian Academy was╩the first school 3 For 1 had on their schedule this year. When they sing at╩Christian schools, they are allowed to freely speak about Jesus, much like a regular church service. An invitation was presented and 15 students stood up in front of all their peers acknowledging that they accepted Jesus as their Savior.
╩ "This was such an amazing way to╩start our week. We have sang in a lot of schools, but this was the first time something like this has happened." Jim Leonard, 3 For 1 baritone,╩adds.
Videos are featured on 3 For 1's website that show a few clips from the school assemblies. It is so neat to see how the kids at these schools react to Gospel Music. There are also pictures in their photo gallery of students from the schools. You'll have to visit www.3for1.com and see for yourself.
╩ Newest addition to 3 For 1, Stephen Robertson, shares a few words about his first performance in a school, "It was a really awesome experience.╩When some of ╩those kids stood up and professed Jesus Christ as their Savior, I thought to myself, 'This is why we're here, to see souls saved and lives changed.'╩I'm just glad that God saw fit to allow me to be a part of such a great event."
╩ 3 For 1's╩S.O.S. (Save Our Schools) ministry, is growing more and more. Next year there have already been╩four more schools request to be a part of the "Light Your World" Tour and there is already talk about extending their╩stay in Southeast, GA to three weeks.
