Ned, I know that you're working with Generation Joshua to develop student clubs for greater opportunities for member involvement. Tell us about these clubs and what you hope they will accomplish.
Mike, I'm very excited about these clubs and what we'll be starting in the beginning of 2005. What I envision for these clubs is that likeminded youthGeneration Joshua memberswill meet together once a month for numerous reasons: one, prayer for this nation and its leaders; two, to discuss political, civic current events in light of Scripturewhat does Scripture have to say about what's going on around us; and three, to be involved in our communitiesnot only in our civic duties (helping with Habitat for Humanity or cleaning a park), but also being involved in local, municipal elections to get good men and women into office. I'm very excited about these clubs and I really think the growth potential for Generation Joshua will be exponential.
Ned, if students are in a community where there isn't a GenJ Club, can they contact us and start a club?
Absolutely, Mike. What they need to do is they need an adult sponsor who is either a guardian or a parent of a current Generation Joshua member, and they need at least five Generation Joshua members to begin this club. And then all they need to do is contact us and we'd be happy to start a club with them.
Now, that sounds like a great way for students to work together to make a difference in our country. Join us next time as we talk with another student who worked in last year's election. I'm Mike Farris.
