Made to Count
William Wilberforce is a shining example of one who discovered and lived out the purpose for which God created him. That same high impact message, that each one of us is “Made to Count” to fulfill a purpose for which God has created us, is ideal for preaching to your congregation. Pastors can lead their own churches through a 50-day adventure called “The Made to Count Journey.” Bob Reccord and Randy Singer have written a book and carefully prepared a turnkey set of resources for guiding every individual in your church in a discovery of how they were “made to count”—to make a positive difference in the world as God has uniquely created them to do. You can read an excerpt from “Made to Count” about John Newton and the impact he had on William Wilberforce by clicking on the links. You may also learn more about “The Made to Count Journey” by clicking here. Sermon’s by Bob Reccord, including his high-impact sermon “Called to Count.”
