This email is coming from evangelist Bro Cope. I have been on the Campus Ministry USA Board of Directors for many years, and have been the webmaster of the CMUSA website since it's inception. I also preach on university and college campuses. I built a mailing list out of the many emails sent to me over the years. Some of you I know, others I don't. This initial mailing is to offer everyone on the list the chance to opt out of receiving my ministry newsletters. I hate spam as much as anyone, and will honor all requests to be removed without hesitation.
I was one of the early campus preachers, starting to preach in 1977 at Penn State Univerity. I preached for 6 years full time, at which time I began to travel around the country to other campuses. Unfortunately, my finances did not keep up with my expenses. I decided in 1984 to take a "short" hiatus from preaching in order to start a business that would support me. I did not want to be a burden on the believers. To my great sorrow, I spent 23 years trying again and again to build that base, only to meet with frustration and failure.
year when I turned 60, I purposed that I would get back to preaching no matter
what the consequences. And so here I am, hat in hand, doing the one thing I didn't
want to do before. I am asking for help. I am in great need of building support
for my full time campus ministry. I traveled and preached with Jed Smock
for a couple of months in the spring, and have been preaching at my alma mater
since the beginning of the semester. But now it is time for me to once again go
back out on the road. Expenses were high for my spring tour, and I need to appeal
to as many as I can for help to go out plowing the fields.
Please, consider supporting me in my ministry. I don't have a whole lot of years left. I want to end my course on the front lines, battling for the Kingdom of God. If you can't support me yourself, would you be able to give me any contacts you have of churches that might be open to my ministry as I travel? Any help you could offer would be much appreciated.
If you do
not want to be on my list, please reply back to this email message, and you will
