Area churches band together to raise funds for film project


This Thursday, a challenge was issued to Detroit Lakes-area pastors at the regular meeting of the Detroit Lakes Ministerial Association.

The challenge is this: Each pastor has been charged with going to their respective congregations to raise a collective total of $38,000 by April 30.

That $38,000 would, in turn, be sent to Campus Crusade for Christ, to sponsor a new language translation of the film titled, simply, “Jesus.”
