Planning, promoting Operation Inasmuch
    March 12 2010 by David Crocker, Operation Inasmuch

     This is the third in a series of Updates for churches participating in the Operation Inasmuch event all across North Carolina on April 24 and May 1, 2010. The Biblical Recorder will be providing articles leading up to the event to help with planning, project ideas and other helpful information.   

    Where you should be in your planning as of March 13
    • All projects identified with Project Leaders recruited
    • Projects/volunteers tracking process in place (use spreadsheet on Resource DVD that comes with book on Operation Inasmuch)
    • Date of Project Leaders meeting (ca. 2 weeks prior to your Inasmuch) set and agenda in process
    • Promotion beginning with video/testimonies/posters in place (more content than “Save the date” announcements); announce sign-up period; distribute list of available projects to membership one week prior to start of sign-ups
    • Cast a compelling vision to your congregation of what you believe God wants to accomplish through your church in Inasmuch
    • Kickoff and celebration gatherings plans 75 percent complete 
    Project Idea — (for seniors) Write letters to persons incarcerated in local jail
    • Obtain permission and do’s and don’ts for such letter writing from sheriff or warden
    • Obtain names of incarcerated two days prior to Inasmuch so your list is as up-to-date as possible
    • Gather volunteers in a home or at church day of Inasmuch. Letters should be hand-written
    • Include encouraging pictures from children, Bible verses, written prayers (perhaps prepared by different volunteers)
    Register your church’s participation in the statewide Operation Inasmuch — Go to: and look for “Registration.” 

    Official NCOIAM T-shirts available — Go to and click on “Resources;” download order form. 

    If you have photos or information about your event to share, send to Dianna Cagle at Call (919) 847-2127 if you have questions.
