Mission Opportunity through Tennessee Baptist Mission Board

Volunteers are needed to partner with Revive City Church Medical/Block Party in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 28, 2019.

This is the 4th year for this event. In the past there has been an attendance of over 800 people, which volunteers provided medical care with the North American Mission Board Medical/Dental Mobile units. This free event was a vision of Pastor Kirk Kirkland and others to reach Cincinnati and the surrounding cities for Christ. 

Medical personnel are needed for the medical/dental unit. In addition to medical personnel, volunteers are needed to help with haircuts, oil changes, food booths, games, give aways, music, pastors and others for spiritual counseling, etc.

There will also be a stage for music volunteers. Daywind music has offered to help do a talent search and the winner gets a record session and 500 CD’s. Date for this has not been scheduled yet. Daywind Record Company will also do a similar talent search August 29-September 1, 2019 at the Gospel Fest at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.

Come and share God’s abundant love and hope with the city of Cincinnati, Ohio.

For more details please contact Carolyn Demonbreun at 615.585.2299 or carolyndemonbreun@hotmail.com Carolyn is a member of Brentwood Baptist Church and is working with Pastor Kirkland in getting volunteers and other resources for the free clinic day.
