Apostolic Faith Church launched the 6K launch with excitement and a challenge. Their launch included a stage announcement, a video, and a table in the lobby after service with sign up sheets and postcards to give to anyone who wanted more information or missed the announcement at the beginning of service. The launch also included a challenge from the Bishop of the church for members to beat him to the finish line! After the launch AFC built in standard reminders given before the message each Sunday reminding members about the event but more importantly asking them to bring friends and family who are not members of the church to experience what God was doing through the 6K in their community. The “AFC Fit” team grew to over 180 walkers and runners because of the leadership of Bishop Smith who wasn’t afraid to go all in for clean water!
Pastor Josh Ferreira from Gilroy Presbyterian launched the Global 6K at his church in 2015. Josh and his church went all in with the Global 6K. They launched from the stage, reached out to their community and even set up a discount code so the church could pay the registration fee for children. Josh’s church raised nearly $10,000 for clean water.
