Thank you for coming to the Cody James Ministries site. The purpose of this giving campaign is to send Cody to jails and prisons in order to reclaim God’s children. If you keep up with Cody on his Facebook page you will know that the mission field to which Cody is called is one of the richest fields in our nation. Through God’s anointing and purpose, Cody consistently sees an overwhelming response to God’s gospel message shared through Cody’s testimony, music and heart. The stories that come out of this ministry are overwhelming and inspirational. The number of souls saved each year far exceeds the vast majority of churches. This is simply because ministries like Cody’s are focused exclusively on fishing; fishing for men and woman who desperately need Christ. A ministry like Cody’s is a mobile church. It is God’s calling card arriving at the lowest point in men and woman’s lives. Once ministered to, it is CJM’s strategy to partner with local churches in order to provide a safe place to go as a new Christian or seeker of Christ to grow, learn and find acceptance in their new lives. Partnering with the R3 network provides released inmates the most basic and practical support they need to practically begin a new life. This three legged partnership contains all the ingredients needed to be complete.
MY PEOPLE WILL SEND YOU
Before you read on, may I ask you to watch the video below? It will share an amazing about how this ministry began. I have known Cody for several years but never had heard this part of his story. I think it will inspire you in your own walk with Christ. What I admire most in this story is the almost blind obedience to “go” before figuring out how to go. It’s amazing that when this is one, God shows up unmistakably in person. As a board member I have watched Cody and Jamie every year book jail tours. The funding of these tours is subsequently accomplished by booking tour events (speaking and performing). While speaking and performing at local churches will always be a priority, I must share with you as a board member and friend of Cody it is a sure fire way to burn out through stress, uncertainty and distraction. The last few years has taught Cody and his family this more than any other. As a result Cody has been instructed by his board to follow the footsteps of every full time missionary which is to raise basic monthly support so that he can stay focused on his call. Monthly support will help increase Cody’s longevity in the field by helping him to know basic family needs are being met and jail tour trips are funded. The most important result of this is; by supporting CJM on a monthly basis, you are directly involved is saving men and woman for Christ. Think about this for it is the single greatest reason my wife and I invest time and money into CJM. We love Cody and Jamie, but in the end it is the people reached through his ministry that propels us. Each check mark in the table above represents “senders”; people who send Cody to share God’s love and message. These check marks represent large number of lives every year that are saved and redeemed. More importantly, the “open” boxes also represent lives as well. I look at these open boxes as lives that will be reached by increasing the number of jails and prisons Cody can visit each year. I would like to encourage you to get your check mark. With this a check mark you will be the one who sent Cody. You will be the one that brought light into dark places in order for God’s lost children to once again hear the voice of the shepherd calling them home. This is a check in your life worth having! If you know me you know I am a movie buff. One of my favorite scenes in “Doc Hollywood” is when the old small town doctor gives the young buck doctor out for riches and notoriety a bit of wisdom. He opens a cabinet door in his old shoddy office to reveal a poster board jammed with pictures of all of the town members and shares; “here is my portfolio which I wouldn’t trade for all the gold in the world”. The lives he ministered to was his check mark. What will be your check marks in the lives of others in 2014? May I suggest you consider CJM as a great place to start? We would be grateful for your support and will share how your check affected lives in the years to come.
