Here's My Shout: Can a Shout Create an Earthquake?
Here's My Shout Can a Shout Create an Earthquake Author:Gervasi, Steve "Justyn, how would you like to do something wild and crazy, adventurous, and off the charts, pushing us to our limits, and fun all at the same time?" — "Yeah, Dad! But what?" — "Ride a bicycle with me from Flint, Michigan, to Columbia, Tennessee." — "Wh...wh...when?" — "Well, son, all can say is, we'll be home for Christmas!" — I'm pretty good at s... more »peaking Justyn's language, because he has a wild side just like me. "Justyn," I said, "We're going to ride our bikes 700 miles in the winter as a shout-out for the younger generation."
In typical wild-man fashion Justyn responded, "I'm there, Dad. Count me in."
On December 9, 2004, father and son, Steve and Justyn Gervasi, along with Mark Handke, a brother in the faith, left the vicinity of the hospital parking lot where Steve was born in Flint, Michigan. They rode their bicycles nearly 700 miles, shouting out all the way for the needs of today's youth.
This book is a record of their journey, and of how their simple shout for the teen generation is becoming the prayer-cry of many.
Steve Gervasi is the founder and president of The Exchange Network, a ministry committed to growing a kingdom network of prayer and support for students. He lives in Tennessee with his wife, Patti, and their three college age children, Anna, Justyn, and Lindsay.« less
Are you interested in starting a ministry of prayer for the youth in your church? This book chronicles the birth pangs of such a ministry in southern Middle Tennessee.
Steve's vision is to take this ministry all over the nation. He and Justyn are planning another bike ride, an even longer one, to tell people about the Shout Ministry, and to encourage people to pray for students.
By the way, it is called Shout in reference to the shout given by the people of Israel at the battle of Jericho ... and the walls came tumbling down!
