Introduction to the 100 Club

INTRODUCTION TO 100 CLUB
David Constance

As a youth leader in a growing church, I have often been frustrated by the inconsistency of many of our teens and young adults. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised…. As a teen and a young man in my early twenties, I was often frustrated with my own inconsistencies! I loved God, and desired to do a work for Him, but I simply could never seem to find that experience with God that would put me “over the top.” Like nearly every young person, I came home from summer Bible camps, youth conventions, and rallies ready to set the world afire! I would be determined to never fail God again, burdened for the souls of my classmates, committed to hours of prayer, carrying my Bible everywhere, and ready to burst into exuberant worship at the slightest touch of the Spirit of God! Why, there were times that this kind of devotion would last for … well… say?… OK, OK… a week or two!

Of course, that wasn’t my fault. Life is tough, you know…

…When I finally get a car, things will be different…

…When I get a job and start making some money, I will be more able to serve God…

…When I graduate from high school, the pressure will be off…..

It will be alot easier to live for God in Bible College, of course…

…I’ll really be able to dedicate myself when I graduate from Bible College, you’ll see…

…When I get married, all my problems will be over…

…If I didn’t have so many bills to pay, I could give myself totally to God…

…It would be much easier for me to live for God if I would move somewhere else…

Looking back, I realize that I said them all. I have since learned three very important principles in living for God:

• First, there is no “over-the-top” experience that will once and for all exterminate the sins that so easily beset. me.

• Second, life does not get easier the older I get, nor do circumstances become more condusive to a Godly lifestyle.

• Third, a I don’t have a long-lost rich uncle that will die and surprise me with a million bucks.

100 Club addresses the first two principles. The third… well, McDonalds is hiring, if you can’t find anything else…

100 Club is designed to help teens and young adults develop a walk with God. There are many programs that provide fellowship, recreation, outreach activity. or times of refreshing in the Spirit. These programs are excellent, very needful, and must continue. But our pastors and youth leaders are still asking the question, “How can I get our youth to be spiritual all of the time?”

Recently the Southern Baptist Convention spearheaded a campaign for youth to sign a pledge of moral purity. Having young, people make the commitment is a great idea, but I hope that most of our churches have been asking their youth to make this commitment for years. Our youth not only need encouragement to make a commitment, but they require training and resources that will help them to keep it once it is made! At youth rally’s, camps, conferences, and even in a red-hot Sunday night service, it is very easy to make vows to God. And if we could live our lives at rally’s, or if every day was Sunday, it would be very
easy to keep those vows. The problem is that there are at least six days separating Sundays, there is a month or so between each Youth Rally, and Camp may only come once a year! The ministry of I 00 Club
is motivating young people to live for God Monday through Saturday, year in and year out!

The purpose of 100 Club on a national level can be expressed as follows:

• To provide youth ministry materials and training to churches nationwide.

• To gather and distribute new information, ideas, and materials related to youth ministry as they become available.

To establish a network of committed youth groups from churches all over the nation, providing regular updates on progress, as well as opportunities for fellowship.

The purpose of 100 Club on a local level is to do the following:

• To stabilize an existing youth group in the spiritual disciplines.

• To win new young people to Jesus Christ.

• To provide a pattern for Christian growth to new converts.

• To give the church/youth group a greater visibility in the community

• To provide adults in the church with opportunities to support the youth ministry in prayer, giving, and personal involvement

The burden of 100 Club is:

• That young people from all denominations would unite in prayer, Bible study, and fasting, allowing God to bring a revival of Apostolic Truth and Power to America.

• To see 250,000 young people 100% committed to Jesus and praying daily for such a revival in our nation.

If you have any questions, or if you would like assistance in implementing 100 Club in your assembly, please feel free to call us. We will help you in any way possible to see the successful commencement
and continuance of this program in your church. You may contact us at:

Only a Boy Named David

“Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: hut I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the Lord deliver
thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shaft know that the Lord saveth not with a sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.” (I Sam 17:45-47)

For forty days the champion of the Philistines had stood in the valley of Elah shouting taunts at the armies of Israel. For forty days the men of Israel had peeked out at the giant through the closed flaps of their tents, cringing every time they heard his challenge. Yet now a different voice rang out in the valley. Was it Saul, the king who was a head and shoulders above all the rest of them? Was it Abner, the captain of the host? Curiosity soon overcame fear, and cautious faces began to appear over rocks and around trees lining the valley, as all eyes strained to recognize the brave warrior who had gone to meet Goliath’s challenge.

What was that kid doing out there?!…

But young David did not wonder for a moment at the action he was taking. He was incensed that this Philistine had made such boasts against Ms Lord, and against the armies of the nation that he loved.
The Spirit of God was stirring him to action. He could feel that familiar unction… the same that he had felt when the Eon had tried to steal a lamb from the flock he was tending. He had felt that same annointing when the bear had come upon his sheep. God had delivered both of them into Ws hands, and wasn’t much more now at stake than a lamb from his father’s flocks?

If God wanted him to win, what could possibly defeat him?…

Goliath sputtered and spit, insulted by the proclamation of this young shepherd from Israel. Did the armies of Saul consider him to be a little puppy? He would show them! Without even bothering to take his shield from his armor bearer, he began to walk towards David. If he hadn’t been so angry, he might laugh at the sight of the young man placing a stone into his sling! As he watched the twirling of the boy’s arm at his side, he wondered, “Should I actually throw this spear, or just beat the kid over the head with it?”

Then everything went black…

“So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and
took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled. And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Edron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell do” by the way to Shaaraim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron.” I Sam 17:50-52)

Could David have possibly known? As he selected those five smooth stones, did lie realize that their impact would be much farther-reaching than the forehead of the giant? As he twirled the familiar leather thong, did he know that Sunday School children thousands of years later would wildly imitate Ms movements as they sang “Only a Boy Named David, Only a Little Sling…”? Did he even know that his victory over Goliath would break once and for all the Philistine’s military dominance over the armies of Israel? For as David lifted Goliath’s sword from it’s sheath, and cut off the head of the strong man., courage like never before filled the hearts, of the men watching on. The hills near the valley of Elah became volcanoes of men, as the
armies of Israel spewed like lava down their sides to encompass the fleeing Philistines. Saul and all of his warriors soon passed David in their pursuit, and these once-cowardly soldiers all earned a few war-
stories of their own before the day was up.

You see, David’s victory was not the only victory that day. Had Goliath only been destroyed, Israel would have remained in the captivity of the Philistines. But something happened when David acted in faith. Saul and all the rest of his soldiers were able to gather the scraps of their tattered faith, and reconstruct them into a spirit: of victory that. within just a few years propelled Israel to become a world power. This one young man’s personal victory became the spark that ignited the fires of nationwide revival. David was a catalyst.

I asked my teen Sunday School class if they knew what a “catalyst” was… One young lady responded that it was a cowboy! It may sound like “one who studies cattle”, but sorry… A catalyst is not a cowboy! A catalyst is a substance that alters the speed of a chemical reaction yet itself remains unchanged. That’s what Doubleday Dictionary says, anyway. Not much help, was it? Let me try… A catalyst is like the cap at the end of a shotgun shell. When you pull the trigger, the firing pin hits the cap, which creates a very small explosion, This very small explosion, however, takes place next to a very large amount of gunpowder, which in turn creates a much larger explosion. This larger explosion propells the wadding out through the barrel of the shotgun, pushing in front of it alot of little BB’s. These BB’s upon entering the open air, begin to spread out into a pattern that is very difficult for a pheasant to avoid. (Unless I am the one holding the
shotgun) Dinner in the evening is provided because of a tiny cap that became a catalyst.

I am convinced that the young people in our churches can become a catalyst for the revival that God so desperately wants to give our cities. The revival burning in the heart of God is more than a revival of young people. He feels the ache in the widows heart and hears the hollowness in the drunkard’s laugh. He may be the only one who weeps when the town bag lady dies, but weep He does. From the wail in the delivery room to the feeble cough in the nursing home, He hears and understands the cry for revival. Can the young person reach them all? Of course not! No more than David could have gone on to destroy the whole Philistine army, God’s not looking for a one-man band. He is looking for the cap in the end of the shotgun shell. God is looking for a catalyst.

How does a young person become this catalyst? What gives some the inner strength and motivation to tackle the giant, while others sit back and ponder its enormity? Why did the shepherd boy do what the
king only dreamed about? I’m glad you asked!

Is There Not a Cause?

I believe that, the key to David’,-, success can be recognized in his query, “Is there not a cause?” David apparently had a much different perspective than the rest of the soldiers in Saul’s army. The men of
Israel looked into the valley and saw something to fight; David looked into the valley and saw something to fight for! And what an incredible difference that one word made!

The old ad-age says, “If you shoot for nothing, you will most certainly hit it!” How true! There were two factors that really made the difference for David that day. David saw a goal, and his vision of the goal allowed him to consider the incentives. Notice in I Samuel 17:26…

“And David spake to them men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he
should defy the armies of the living God?”‘

David, already annointed to be the next king of Israel, had an great love for both God and the people of God. Taking away the reproach from Israel was in itself a worthy goal, how much more that of stopping this
open defiance of the very God of the armies of Israel? David’s vision of the kingdom of God allowed him to view Goliath in a proper perspective, one that revealed a much smaller giant back-dropped against the immensity of the plan of God. The others all saw the same giant but without a vision of the Kingdom, Goliath appeared to be the biggest thing around!

David’s understanding of the possibilities allowed him to ask again, “What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine … ?” The people answered him with this list of incentives:

“…and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.”

What a reward! It is a pity that not one of the soldiers in Saul’s army could even consider taking the king up on his offer. Without a vision – without anything to fight for, the task was simply too great. But David saw a goal, he appreciated the incentives, and asked, “Is there not a cause?”

In training young people to consistently conquer the giants in their lives, we must provide them with a balance of proper goals and incentives. Humans are short-sighted by nature; we must teach our youth to expand their horizons, to look to the future, to set goals! Without this capacity they will never become champions in the Kingdom of God. In all actuality, they will probably not even remain in the Kingdom!

Look with me for a moment at a verse that was inspirational in the development of 100 Club. The writer of this verse had an incredible impact on Ms world, and it was the very attitude expressed therein that
compelled him to greatness. Look closely at the words of Paul in Philippians 3:13-15:

`Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which tire behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of
the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded…”

The same two factors that motivated David to tackle the giant are apparent in Paul’s success. He pressed toward the mark (goal) for the prize (incentive). The high calling of God in Christ Jesus has always
involved both! Paul’s goal was not to make it to heaven! His goal was to win the lost, his incentive for doing so was heaven! Unfortunately, so many Christians today wander aimlessly through life, having little
or no effect on their world, because they confuse the incentives of the high calling with the goal of the high calling, and spend their time just trying to “make heaven their home!” There was no question in Paul’s mind about getting to heaven… that was -,imply the reward for reaching his real goal!

Jesus had a goal. In Hebrews 12:2 we are instructed to emulate Jesus in running the race that is set before us…

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith,- who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Jesus died, was buried, rose again, and ascended into heaven, all for the “joy that was set before Him.” His goal – to “seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:1 0) His incentive – the joy of being reconciled with fallen mankind in the everlasting Kingdom of God. Jesus’ goal was not heaven, as he left there willingly, and stands there now as an intercessor for us in the continuing work of redemption. (Heb 7:25, Rom 8:34)

1 am confident that you could have awakened either Jesus or Paul in the middle of the night with the question, “What is your most important spiritual goal?”, and both would be able to answer without hesitation. These men continually kept their goals at the forefront of their minds. Today, if asked the same question, most young people will respond with, -Uh-b-h…” Yet Paul said that as many as are perfect should be like-minded! We must have goals!

What exactly is it about a well-defined goal that helps us to succeed? Why are goals so necessary for the growth of the church? Consider the following benefits of goal-setting:

Goals give us direction.
Goals bring unity.
Goats motivate us.
Goals lend credibility to our witness.

Goals give us direction. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that a man leaving the Midwest with Los Angelos. as Ms goal will take a much different direction than a man who wants to end up in New York. Goals make a vast difference in the way we act, talk, and in the decisions we make. I have known some “professional students,” who, after several years of college, still haven’t chosen a major, and still don’t know
what they would like to become! What a waste of time and money, when some simple goal-setting earlier in life could have given direction to their studies! Likewise goal-setting will bring solid direction to young people who otherwise would waste years accomplishing little or nothing for God.

Goals bring unity to an assembly. When Jesus said, “Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” I believe he envisioned the church as an offensive team, breaking through the defenses of the walled kingdom of Satan. In the absence of planes and bombs, the only way to break into a city was to somehow penetrate its walls; thus the most furious warfare of all was waged at the city gates. A common method of breaking through the massive doors that blocked entrance was the use of a battering ram. Many soldiers, carrying the same object, running in the same direction, at the same time, could with their repeated efforts break down the gates. Those same soldiers could have beat endlessly with their own little sticks and never accomplished what they could collectively. How powerful is a youth group that is striving together toward a common goal! It is such a united church that the devil fears the most!

Goals motivate us. Isn’t there something about a paycheck that makes you want to punch a clock five days a week? Isn’t there something about a diploma that makes you want to stick it out in 12th grade? (when you already know it all … Isn’t their something about mounted antlers above the fireplace that makes you want to sit in a tree for hour–, and freeze? Isn’t their something hi the thought of the first four pews in your church filled with vibrant young people that makes you want to pray more? Of course! Well-defined goals motivate all of us to accomplish both the ordinary and the extra-ordinary.

Goals lend credibility to our witness. Ever been asked why you live the way you do? Christian youth get asked that in one way or another time and again. And the answer, “Because that’s what my church teaches,” doesn’t do much form most people! The Bible instructs us in I Peter 3:15:

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Every child of God ought to know exactly what it is they are fighting for, so they can explain the validity of the fight. Thus goals bring credibility to our lives.

The bottom line is this, .. We cannot survive without goals! Prov. 29:18 tells us, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Had not David come along, saying, “Is there not a cause?”, the armies of Said would have rotted in the hills alongside the valley of Elah, simply because they had nothing to fight for!

The purpose of 100 Club is to provide young people with both goals and Incentives that will direct, motivate, unite, and accredit them. Teach your youth to concentrate on the goals of being 100% committed to Jesus Christ, and to build the local youth group to 100 committed young people, (or by 100 more committed young people) and you will see an immediate change in their lives. Provide them with incentives, or rewards for faithfulness, instead of punishment for a lack of performance, and they will develop into stable, vibrant Christians in a short time.

A Sling and A Stone

One remarkable thing about David’s victory over Goliath was that it was not wrought with conventional weaponry. It was accomplished with a very small weapon called a sling, and one smooth stone. Saul had tried to get the young man to wear Ms armor out to battle, arguing that David would never make it back alive without it. But David refused, saying that he had not “proved” it. In actuality, David was more than likely dwarfed in Saul’s armor, since Saul was a “head and shoulders” above the rest of the army, and David was “but a youth.” It might have been disastrous for David if he had felt obligated to wear Saul’s armor in
his first fight! One day David would wear such armor, and fight in it mightily, at that. But it was too much to start off with; he needed something that lie could handle.

So the young shepherd boy walked out into the valley of Elah that day with nothing but Ms leather swig. Onlookers wondered at the foolishness of the lad, confronting the giant with such slight force. Afterwards, men would view it as a miracle, that such a small weapon could down such a mammoth warrior as Goliath. Miracle or not, God indeed used a lad, with nothing but a sling and a stone, to work victory in Israel that day. He still works the same way.

I believe that today, just as, in the story of David and Goliath, God has for the small and seemingly insignificant to a mighty purpose. A question is posed in Zechariah 4:10 that bears repeating here-, “For
who has despised the day of small things?” In both a negative and a positive light small things have a profound impact upon our lives. The “little white lie” often grows into a deception of monstrous proportions. Jesus said a “little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” It is the slightest compromise with sin that begins the descent of a child of God into reprobacy. Yet in another light, it is the smallest positive influences in a man’s life that can lead him to God. The kind word, the simple prayer, the good deed, all can impact a person in such a way that their life will never be the same.

First consider who God chooses. We have constantly reminded our young people that they are the church of tomorrow, and in doing so suppress the energy of youth that God has ordained to be a great part of the
church of today! It is God’s plan that our young people should be leaders in the church. This does not mean they should be given position,, of great influence and authority but simply that they should lead the church by example. In I Tim 4:12 Paul says,

“Let no man despise thy youth: but he thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

I believe that our youth must be encouraged to take the leadership in prayer, fasting, witnessing, worship, and even in the operation of spiritual gifts! In his message on the day of Pentecost, the apostle Peter quoted Joel 2:28…

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophecy…

Not only should our youth be encouraged to set the pace for the church-, I believe that it Ls the responsibility of youth to maintain the vision that keeps the people from perishing. Joel 2:28 goes on to say,

“…your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions:”

I believe that the old men and the young men see the same thing. What makes it a dream for one and a vision for another is the time and energy available to see its fulfillment Our youth have a remarkable
supply of energy and time, which directed toward the Kingdom of God could turn the world upside-down!

A young person that commits to being a doctor may be one twelve years later. A young person that wishes to pursue a career in law may practice in six years or so. With commitment, a young lady may be a nurse in just a couple of years. But a young person that wants to change their world for Jesus Christ may do so now! No amount of education can accomplish what the Holy Ghost will provide any young person who fully commits, Ms or her life to God. Look with me at I Cor. 1:26-29:

“For ye see your calling brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God
hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are not, to bring to not things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.”

The reason the youth in our churches are not leaders in soulwinning, in prayer, in fasting, and in worship is they are not usually consistent. This too, is largely because of a lack of appreciation for the “small things” that God uses to accomplish His purpose. Too often our young people attempt to meet the giant in the valley of Elah with armor that is unproved, and failure results. If these same young people would realize what God could do with only a sling and a stone, they would find victory less elusive. Let us turn our attention from who God chooses to the weapons with which he equips them.

I remember countless times when, after a compelling message on prayer, I decided to begin praying an hour each day. And then there was my determination to canvass the whole city after watching the missionaries slides! Of course, one of my earlier attempt,,; at fasting was 3 days. Though noble the intent, the armor was unproved. I never consistently succeeded in these initial efforts.

I am convinced that many young people give up after failing time and again, only because they attempted to start with armor that. only experienced soldiers can wear. I will never forget when my pastor told
me, “Pray 15 minutes every day and read your Bible 15 minutes every day, and you will not fail God.” How simple! And how true! One day I would wear that heavy armor; I would spend hours in prayer, I would
fast for extended periods, I would gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the Word of God, and opportunities would arise to witness to large groups of people. But it started with very small steps. Just a sling and a stone!

One of my favorite verses of scripture is Isaiah 40:31:

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shag run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Every person experiences three aspects of life, flying, running, and walking, with regularity. Flying is what a new convert experiences, just after receiving the Holy Ghost. It is what the young person is doing the week after summer Bible Camp. Flying is a spiritual high, when praying and witnessing comes easy, and you just can’t wait. to read your Bible. Aren’t you glad that God allows those who wait upon him to fly like the eagles every once in awhile?

Running usually happens when a person is in a hurry to get somewhere else! It is when the emotions are drained, the funds are low, the friends are few, or the flesh is weak. We all run from time to time,
frantically trying to avoid falling prey to the temptations or problems that beset us. Isn’t it strange… it is often easier to pray in this condition than otherwise? There is something about having our “back against the wall” that drives us to our knees in desperation. I’m glad that God has promised that during these times we would not grow weary if we wait on Him!

The vast majority of our lives are not spent flying, nor are they spent running. Most of our lives are spent walking… just putting one foot in front of the other, usually very monotonous, and often time-consuming. It is punching the clock, driving in traffic, cleaning the house, shaving, going to Wednesday night Bible study, fixing meals every evening, school, homework, etc. Walking involves nothing real exciting, but is necessary to get from here to there! Is it any surprise that most people have the toughest time living for God during the “walking” experience?

Thus it is the objective of I 00 Club to teach young people to learn to be consistent in spiritual disciplines every day of the year. If we can break down the vast and noble goals that we teach them to set into
bitesize, obtainable pieces, we will help to change their lives, and in doing so, change their world.

Any sales trainer will tell a prospective salesman that the very first thing that he needs to accomplish in a sales career is to write on paper his financial goals, once that has been done, the salesman must partition that overall objective into smaller steps. For instance, if the salesman wants to make $30,000 in the next year, and Ms average commission is $500, then he knows he must make 60 sales. This is the beginning of the breakdown. Since the average closing ratio for his businesses I out of 3, to make 60 sales, he must get face-to-face with 180 different people. Since it takes approximately 10 phone calls to result in 1 appointment he knows he must call at least 1800 people, or 150 people each month, or roughly 35 people each week. Once he broken down his goal of making $30,000 into the obtainable goal of calling 35
people each week, he is set for success.

The beginning career salesman will often be required to tam in a record of his sales efforts, including phone calls made, people seen, and sales made. I hated this tedious process as a young salesman, (I can’t
say that I ever learned to enjoy it) but it was the foundation of several profitable years in the insurance business.

We have attempted to include this concept into I 00 Club. The Club goals of being 100% committed to Jesus and building a youth group of 100 committed young people is noble, visionary, and… quite broad! We must develop a set of sub-goals, or a plan of action, to reach them. This plan includes:

100 minutes of prayer each week. (15 min./ day)
100 chapters read from the Bible each month.(3-4 chp./ day)
100 meals fasted each year. (3 days / month)
100 people witnessed to each year. (2 ppl./ week)

Plain and simple. The basics. Anyone can accomplish it. Get young people fulfilling these small, bite-size goals, and you will have young people that are I 00% committed to Jesus. Your youth group will grow to 100 committed young people. What more is required of us? That. is our part… If we do our part, God will take care of His.

What I really like about the concept is this … Any young person that steps into the valley with a sling and a stone will soon be wearing the king’s armor! I have watched many of the youth in our church consistently exceed an hour each day in prayer. They are the strength of our church’s worship. They are teaching Bible Studies, inviting people, praying people through to the Holy Ghost. No less than 6 of our young men (out of 15 presently in 100 Club) have expressed a desire to enter a preaching/teaching ministry, and all of the 100 Club members are involved in some ministry of the church. The younger ones in our youth group (under 16) have grown, following the leadership of I 00 Club members.

Plant… Water… God will give the increase!

GOALS

100 Club is named such because of the goals that its members strive toward. The Club Goals are as follows:

To be lOO% committed to Jesus Christ

To build our youth group to 100 committed members

Note: For those churches with over I 00 young people In the I 00 Club age group, I emphasize the committed part of the above goal. When you have reached 100 committed members, make your goal 100 more!

These broad Club goals are broken down into bite-size Individual Goals that will give members specific direction.

To spend 100 minutes in prayer each week (approx. 15 minutes  each day)
To re-ad 100 chapters in the Bible each month (3 to 4 chapters  each day)
To fast 100 meals each year (approx. 3 days each month, see  note)
To tell 100 different people, about Jesus (approx. 2 each week)
To raise 100 dollars each month during fund-raising drive (see  note)

Notes:

Fasting… With few exceptions, skipping one meal can hardly be called a sacrifice for the Kingdom. You may wish to specify that these meals be grouped by two or three, back-to-back. Without such a stipulation,
you may be surprised at how many young people will realize that they missed breakfast this morning and call it a fast!

Fund-raising… This may seem a somewhat carnal goal compared to the rest, but teaching the youth fiscal responsibility and developing in them an understanding of the needs of others is a positive step. Our
organization has a summer fund-raising drive, called Sheaves for Christ, that provides money for missionaries and various other causes. If you are not affiliated with an organization that has such a drive,
and you decide to use this goal, we recommend that this money be raised for a cause outside of your own assembly. 100 Club uses other methods to raise funds to support your local youth group.

Incidentally, I will not disqualify a member who does not meet this goal as long as they are keeping up with the rest of their commitments. Use your own discretion with your group.

COMMITMENTS

In order to be admitted to I 00 Club, young people must sign a form that lists the following commitments:

I will be in church every service unless I am sick, out-of-town,  working, or in school
I will sit in the first 4 rows in church
I will not smoke, drink, or do any drugs
I will keep myself sexually pure
I will strive to reach all club goals

I attend a holiness church, and we teach many rules of conduct and appearance above and beyond these. I specifically left these standards out of the commitment form because I wanted every newly converted young person to join without hesitation and begin praying, studying, and fasting. It has been our experience that new converts who pray, fast and read the Word of God are taught more easily and develop convictions of their own more quickly. A list of standards with a place for a signature at the bottom would turn many youth away, cheating them of the spiritual benefits of belonging to 100 Club.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Although bringing these goals into focus will inspire many of your youth to make a commitment to Christ, most will need to be held accountable for their performance. The 100 Club Monthly Planner will be the key to helping your young people succeed when the excitement of your commitment service wears off. I found that the monthly planner helps in the following ways:

A reminder – Seeing that 1 00 Club monthly planner in their Bible, in their purse, or on the night-stand every day will remind them of the goals that they have set. When they reach over it to turn out the light it will scream, “Did you pray yet today?”

A means of self-examination – Most young people really don’t know how much they pray, except that it isn’t enough! With the planner, they can see how they are doing. A page in the planner that looks full encourages them to continue, while a blank page says, “You need to work on this, don’t you?”

Somebody’s watching – Telling them that God knows how much they pray doesn’t always have the impact that it. should. Telling them that the pastor is going to review their planners at the end of the month seems
to be more effective in motivating them to consistency!

Youth leader… Make sure that you get the planners to each member at the beginning of each month, and that they are picked up at the end of the month! If you don’t pass them out and ask for them, they will
rarely pick one up or turn one in themselves. You will have to stay on top of it to make this system work!

In the supplies section of this manual there is a form entitled “Member Performance Record.” This form should be used in two ways.

One form-per-month – I make a new form each month with the members listed down the side. Ms gives me an overall look at the entire group’s performance on a monthly basis. Viewing the group’s strengths and weaknesses in this manner gives me direction for my own leadership. If fasting is down, I need to do some teaching on fasting, or perhaps encourage a joint fast with the whole group. If witnessing efforts are low, we need to talk about soulwinning, and perhaps organize some outreach activities. This record will give you a means of evaluating the whole group, and through this an evaluation of your own ministry.

One form-per-member – Make a form for each member of 100 Club, with the months listed down the side. I recommend that you keep a running record of member’s performance, both for your benefit as well as
theirs. Each month, make a copy the record and give it to the member. This will help them to further evaluate their own activity, revealing the percentage of their goals actually reached, and indicating growth
or a decline over a long period.

A member can reach a point that we do not require a planner. Here are the prerequisites for such a Privilege:

They must have been a member in good standing for at least one  year
They must be consistently performing at I 00% in all goals  except prayer
They must consistently reaching 200% in their prayer goals (Two  Mile member)
They must have arranged and/or taught a Bible Study in the past  three months. (Two-Mile member)
They must remain true to the commitments of church attendance,  purity, ministry participation, etc.
The pastor or youth pastor reserve the right to begin requiring a planner again at anytime, should they see the need

100 CLUB INCENTIVES

I have found that reward for well-doing is much more effective than punishment for wrong-doing. Thus 100 Club provides the following rewards for those deserving young people who are willing to make a
commitment to Jesus Christ:

Recognition – A list should be posted on a bulletin board somewhere of all the 100 Club members.

Perhaps honor them in a church service. Let them know that their dedication is not unnoticed!

Certificates – Present each of the members with a certificate of membership before your whole church. Let the saints know the level of commitment that these young people have made, and the impact that you
expect them to have on your assembly and your community.

Monthly Activities – We have an activity once each month that is for members only. The nature of your activity will depend largely on the age of your members, as well as the size of the group. Our present
group is primarily college-age, and because they are so busy, we have most of our get-togethers Sunday night after church. However you structure your activity, make sure:

it does not cost the members anything

most of the members can be there
most of the members are interested

Annual Retreat – Plan this one long in advance. While your older members may not get excited about the monthly activity, most everyone will get excited about an out-of-town trip. Here are some pointers for
getting it together:

Ask the members what they would Eke to do… This is their  retreat!

If you are the youth leader, make sure the pastor approves of  all activities

Make reservations early, and put all the costs together (at  least 6 months in advance) Don’t be afraid to ask providers of transportation, food, and lodging to become 100 Club Business Sponsors and provide free or discounted services!

Don’t make the members pay for anything, if at all possible. Try to keep the retreat within a budget that the youth fund can afford, so that those members who are not financially blessed can participate as well as any.

Remind the members constantly of the retreat through inserts in their monthly planners

Create posters, bulletin boards, etc. to advertise the trip before the whole church. Ms will not only let the church know what is happening, but may encourage those young people who are not participating in 100 Club to get involved.

Don’t compromise your requirements for earning this retreat!  Require a minimum of 3 months participation in 100 Club for new  converts, and at least 6 months participation for existing young
people that put off making a commitment or were dis-qualified  for one reason or another.

Qualification for Ministries – In our church, there are certain ministries that have participation in 100 Club as a requirement. The goals and commitments of 100 Club are necessary for anyone in a leadership or teaching position. If a young person is not willing to make that level of commitment, we are not willing to use them in areas of leadership! But for those who will hold themselves accountable in the spiritual, disciplines, there are a multitude of ministry opportunities available.

Discounts at Participating Businesses – AR members are provided with a membership card that lists participating businesses on the back. By showing the card, they will be able to receive discounts on goods and services. See Business Sponsors later in this section.

Two-Mile Membership – We recognize young people who have gone above and beyond the call of duty by performing above the 200% level in their prayer and Bible reading, and are active in teaching Bible Studies to unsaved young people. These members are presented with a special certificate thanking them for going the “second mile.” Anytime a list of 100 Club members is posted, Two-Mile members should be listed
separately as such. Give honor where honor is due!

QUALIFICATION AND DISQUALIFICATION

Following are listed the requirement-, for being in 100 Club:

• Between the ages of 16-25
• Single
• Must sign the commitment form and keep the commitments
• Must complete the monthly planner and return it to the Youth Pastor
• Must be born again of the water and Spirit (John 3:5)

In order to be fair to those who really make a commitment you have to be willing to disqualify those who do not measure up. A young person should be disqualified for:

• breaking the commitments regarding substance abuse or morality

• missing too much church or sitting in the back (I am somewhat lenient on this… I look for repeated offenses, not one-time occurrences. One or two times is not too bad.)

• falling more than 30% behind in their individual goals (Again, use discretion in this… if a person is really trying, but having trouble in a couple of areas, work with them)

By all means, be consistent! If you have members that can be disqualified, then a system for restoration must be in place. If they are excluded due to a falling behind in their individual goals, I will let them return as soon as they are able to complete a month at 100%. If they are disqualified due to moral offense or substance abuse, they will remain out for at least 3 months, dining which I still require them to turn in a monthly planner. This way they are excluded temporarily from the activities of the Club, but still are encouraged to pray, fast etc. in the interim. This will be crucial to their spiritual restoration.

FUNDING

Like everything else, the monthly activities and the annual retreat for 100 Club members will cost money. For this reason we have included in the concept of 100 Club method,-, of raising funds to support. the
local youth ministry. Every attempt has been made to see that this program is a blessing to the local church, and not a drain on resources. The primary source of funds comes from Adult Sponsors.

Adult Sponsors are those in your church who will agree to:

Pray for the youth of the church regularly

Give at least 3 hours of their time in a month (if needed)

Attend youth services whenever possible (our church’s youth  services are designed for everyone, but simply led by the youth)

Contribute $5 each month to help with youth department expenses

For their contribution, Adult Sponsors are given a 100 Club Sponsor Card. This card enables them to receive discounts from participating Business Sponsors. A Business Sponsor is a business that agrees to do
at least one of the following:

Provide a discount on goods or services to all members and adult  sponsors.

Sponsor a month’s activity or a portion of the annual retreat in  the form of providing food, entertainment, or transportation.

Make a contribution of $100 or more to the local youth ministry

Business Sponsors should be given a plaque in appreciation for their support. A thank-you card signed by many or all of the 100 Club members would also be appropriate. The name of the business should be
posted in the church somewhere, and printed in publications that the church may produce. The best way to ensure the continued support of a local company is for the church to reciprocate the support by trying to
transact business there whenever possible.

There are other motives for obtaining Business Sponsors besides fund-raising. This is an excellent way to increase the visibility of your church within the community. The interaction between your church
members and local businesses can be a great opportunity for witnessing. By -all means send each business newsletters or other publications printed by your church, and send invitations to special activities.
Without being overbearing, let them know that there is a church in town where things are happening!

This method of fund-raising is not a burden on anyone. The Adult Sponsors may be compensated for their small contribution by receiving discounts. Business Sponsors will see an increase in business, and they will have better customers, as well.

This might be a good time to mention… Remind your saints that they represent your church when they use the 100 Club card. They should conduct themselves as Christians at all times, especially so when they
represent the church to a local business. If the business is of the type that employees are tipped, encourage your saint to tip well. You don’t want the employees to say, “Oh, no! Another 100 Club member!”

This has been a brief overview of how 100 Club works. The next section describes how to get started.

Getting Started

The following section is dedicated to helping you initiate the concept of 100 Club in your local church as efficiently as possible. The steps that you should take in implementing this program are listed, in order,
as well as details on how to go about carrying out each one. For an effective kick-off

• Get yourself committed!
• Set a Date for a 100 Club Kick-Off
• Order supplies
• Promotion
• Recruit Business Sponsors
• Take a survey
• Kick-Off Event
• Follow up immediately
• Register your 100 Club

Get Yourself Committed!

The slogan of 100 Club is “Get Yourself Committed. As the youth minister in my local church, I must say that the concept of 100 Club not only helped our youth… It helped me! I could not ask the young people in our church to do anything that I would not do myself I already prayed, fasted, and read my Bible regularly (or so I thought) but I decided to make myself accountable to the youth. I began to fill out a planner myself, and was surprised to discover that I was not as regular with my spiritual disciplines as I thought I was!

The goals of 100 Club are not as readily attained as it might seem. The prayer goal was the most easily attained, although the planner may reveal that sometimes days can go by without a good prayer meeting.
While I studied often for purposes of teaching, I found that I rarely sat down and read the Bible for my own edification. And I have always enjoyed talking with people about the Lord, but it takes a disciplined
effort to meet the witnessing goal of 100 different people each year! The fasting part?… I must confess, that was an area of my life that really needed help! By disciplining myself to fill out a planner regularly, I have grown spiritually, and am much more able to lead our youth in the quest for revival!

By starting now to fill out the planner in this manual, you will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the commitment that you will ask from your youth. Your belief in the concept will be apparent when
you introduce it to your church, and you may well find that it helps to stabilize your own walk with God! You are the leader, which means that everyone should follow you, and not simply be pushed. You might make the same promise that I made… I will not disqualify any member of 100 Club for lack of performance in their goals in a month when I did not meet mine!

Set a Date for a 100 Club Kick-Off

Set a date to kick-off 100 Club in your church. I recommend that you allow yourself at least a month to arrange for effective leadership, recruit Business Sponsors, and build excitement through creative
promotion. If you would like us to come and help in the implementation of this program in your church, call us as soon as possible, so that. we can begin working on a. date.

Order Supplies

Now would be a good time to order supplies. You will need brochures for Business Sponsors immediately, mid brochures for Members and Adult Sponsors before your kick-off. In the last section of this manual you
will find samples of all supplies available from 100 Club Ministries, as well as price lists and order forms. Packages for various size churches are available, as follows:

service, you may call and order supplies to be shipped C.O.D. overnight.

May I take a moment to thank you for ordering 100 Club supplies from us. In order to provide these materials at a low price we have arranged for the printing of very large quantities. Your order not only helps us to meet our printing commitments, but also provides support for our efforts in helping young men and women around the nation Get Committed!

Promotion

Build excitement in your local church regarding this program before its introduction. I encourage you to use posters, skits, letters, or whatever else you can think of to create an interest in 100 Club throughout the entire assembly. I did not divulge to any of our members what 100 Club actually was prior to the Kick-Off, though many people inquired as a result of our promotion. I just smiled and said, “Come and find out!” There’s nothing like aroused curiosity to get people to come expecting to your kick-off event!

Recruit Business Sponsors

As soon as you have set a date to begin your 100 Club ministry, you should begin contacting businesses about sponsoring your local 100 Club. As is discussed in an earlier section, a business can become a
sponsor by:

• Providing a discount to all Members and Adult Sponsors
• Providing food, transportation, entertainment, etc. for a monthly activity or annual retreat
• Make a contribution of $ 100 or more

You will probably find businesses that are willing to provide a discount easily. This is the type of Business Sponsor you should seek first, since the provided discounts will be an incentive for both members and adult sponsors. Many businesses are willing to provide a discount in return for a larger customer base. AR you have to do is ask! With a few Business Sponsors lined up, you will be ready to roll when your commitment service is over.

Take a Survey

In the last section of this manual, you will find a copy of a survey that we took of our church members the week before our commitment service. It was interesting to see how people felt about prayer, church attendance, witnessing, and their own salvation. We found that the average prayer time in our church was right around 5 minutes each day. That is actually a high average… if we had taken about 5 people out of the survey, it would have gone down to around 2 minutes each day! The results of your survey will help greatly in your 100 Club Kick-Off, as you will be stressing the need for consistency in the spiritual disciplines. Taking the survey will also heighten curiosity about 100 Club, and many will want to come your special event to hear its results.

Kick-Off Event

Plan your Kick-Off well. It should be scheduled at a time when most, if not all, of your church members are likely to attend. The success of 100 Club will depend on the support of the entire church; young people, parents, everyone! You will want all of the young people there, so that they will be able to make a commitment. You will want the adults there, for they will support the ministry in prayer, in hands-on assistance, and financially. Most of the adults in the church need to understand the concepts that are taught in 100 Club, anyway. Many of our adults wanted to join! (We do make a planner available to
any of our Adult Sponsors that want one, but membership is limited to age 16-25, single.)

If you would like to have a seminar in your church to initiate 100 Club. call us. We will be happy to teach on goals, the spiritual disciplines, witnessing, revival, or other related subjects in a way that will keep both young people and adults interested. The final service in the seminar will be a commitment service, when the details of 100 Club are explained and brochures are handed out. If I am not available to come, I will try to put you in contact with someone else who would be well able to represent 100 Club to your church.

100 CLUB MEMBER INFORMATION

Having defined goals is critical to the success of any venture. Any accomplished athlete, executive, or salesman will agree with the old adage, “If you shoot for nothing, you will most certainly hit it!” One of the key factors in the Apostle Paul’s success was his commitment to reaching his goal. In Philippians 3:13-14 Paul says, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

100 Club is designed with spiritual goals in mind. Most saints, when asked what their most important spiritual goal is, will respond with, “Uh-h-h…” Yet any successful person has their attention so focused on
their goals that you could awaken them from sound sleep with that question and receive an instant and emphatic answer. I am sure that Jesus would have no hesitation in his response, “For the Son of man is
come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10) The purpose of 100 Club is to provide young adults with a common goal, and to help them develop a consistent lifestyle that will result in the realization
of these goals.

The 100 Club Goals are as follows:
To be 100% committed to Jesus Christ
To see 100 committed young people in the local assembly

There are also individual member goals:
To spend 100 minutes in prayer each week (15 minutes/day)
To read 100 chapters in the Bible each month (3-4 chapters/day)
To fast 100 meals each year (3 days/month)
To share their testimony with 100 people each year (2 people/week)
To raise $100 each month during Sheaves for Christ.

Prov. 29:18 tells us, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Joel 2:28 makes it clear that it is the responsibility of young people to maintain the vision that keeps the church alive. “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:” Both the young men and the old men see the same thing; What makes it a dream for one and a vision for another is the time and energy available to carry it out. Our young people are not, as some say, the church of tomorrow. They are very much the church of today! Without the commitment of young men and young women to catch the vision and see its fulfillment, the church will die.

If you are between the ages of 16 and 25, single, baptized in Jesus Name and filled with the Holy Ghost, we invite you to join us in commitment to Jesus Christ. As a member you will receive a certificate of membership, and a membership card that will enable you to receive discounts from local merchants who have become our business sponsors. You will also receive a 100 Club planner each month that will have a
calendar of events and a place to track your progress in your individual goals. This planner will be turned in each month and will be used to determine your eligibility to receive member privileges. A complete list of guidelines may be found in the Member’s Guide. If you want to become a member of 100 Club, please fill out the attached card and turn it in at the church office.

GET YOURSELF COMMITTED!

Yes, I would like to be a 100 Club Member!

I will sit in the first 4 pews in church.

I will not smoke, drink, or do any drugs.
