Volunteers and organizers to the Super Bowl Evangelism Project from Virginia, Florida and Illinois convened in Houston to “infuse every aspect of Sunday’s big game with the Holy Spirit,” the Baptist Press reported, Jan. 29.

On Jan. 24, A group of six from Ironbridge Baptist Church in Chesterfield, Va., arrived in Houston and immediately went to work, informing the residents of an upcoming revival and family sports weekend at Cloverleaf Baptist Church, a small church in transition.

On Jan. 26, the Virginia volunteers gathered with about a dozen others at Sagemont Church's auxiliary campus to offload 50,000 Bibles, 20,000 Sports Spectrum magazines, 300 videos with testimonies from Houston Texan football players and thousands upon thousands of witnessing tracts.

On Jan. 27, mission volunteers from the Jacksonville Baptist Association in Florida arrived for a “scouting expedition” for next year’s Super Bowl that will be held in their hometown. David Garrett said his group, representing several churches from the association, would spend Thursday morning, Jan. 29, working at a local food distribution center and then spend the evening volunteering at the NFL Experience, an indoor interactive theme park related to all things football. Friday evening will take them to Reliant Stadium for "stadium stuffing" and prayerwalking duty.
