How To Be Rich

On November 2, 2011 by Eddie

A few weeks ago, Brad Bretz called and asked me if I’d be okay with having “Here and Now” be the theme song for our Be Rich campaign at North Point this year. I was pumped, because this kind of campaign is exactly what that song is all about. Be Rich is a picture of what the church should be about, breaking down the walls and taking the love and grace of God to the cities we live in.

This fall, thousands of people from our five Atlanta campuses will be serving the poor and marginalized in our communities. There are literally thousands of service opportunities, scattered all across the city, and in the end we will have touched the lives of tens of thousands of people who need help in this season especially. If you’ve never gotten involved, you should check it out and jump in.

The campaign kicked off on October 30th, you can watch the opening video here (p.s., great job Brad and the media team, you guys rule). If you were at church on Sunday, you know how amazing it was to watch people lined up to give towards poverty and sickness needs, it was probably the most moving Sunday morning I’ve ever been a part of. We’ve already raised a staggering amount of money, so don’t miss church this Sunday when we will announce the totals from last week alone.

There’s six weeks left and tons of different ways to get involved and give your time and/or resources to help. For more information or to get involved, check out
