For Immediate Release
Varnell, GA (www.RunforGod.com) October 18, 2019
Since the fall of 2009 Run for God has one mission, to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the sport of running. Mitchell Hollis had no idea where God was taking this ministry when he decided to have twelve simple t-shirts made. “I was simply doing what I feel the Lord had laid on my heart,” said Hollis who serves as the President of Run for God ministries.
Run for God has now been taught in over 3500 churches, schools, and community centers around the world, but their focus has begun to shift. “The program itself used to be the focus,” Hollis said, “But God changed all that! With God’s direction, we’ve built a large platform, the only questions is, what are we going to do with it?” Hollis feels that while they will still promote new classes around the world and continue to grow the platform, the primary focus is now boldly sharing the Gospel through mass media.
“Mass Media is effective, but it’s also expensive, and we’ll need help,” explains Hollis. Mitchell Hollis and his wife Holly prayerfully made the decision this past November to step out in faith and take the entire ministry of Run for God Nonprofit. Hollis continues, “What God was leading us to do simply could not be done with a traditional business format. A 501c3 nonprofit status offers the accountability, integrity, and transparency that donors demand, and that’s exactly what we want to give them.”
It is for this reason that an anonymous donor has offered to match all donations to Run for God up to $30,000 in an effort to kickoff the fall donation season. When asked why a donor of this size chose to remain anonymous, Hollis simply said, “That was their desire.”
Run for God has already seen hundreds of salvations and thousands of visits to its Peace with God webpage as a result of what God is doing through these media campaigns. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to Run for God, please visit http://www.RunforGod.com/Donate
About Run for God
