Just a month after members of a church in Alabama launched the “Jesus 2020” campaign, thousands of signs displaying the slogan have popped up all across the country.
Sampey Memorial Baptist Church in the small town of Ramer, Alabama, located just outside of Montgomery, has set itself up as the Jesus 2020 campaign headquarters. The campaign’s organizers explained the rationale for launching the movement in a Facebook post last month, one day after the creation of the Jesus 2020 Facebook page.
“We originated this idea so people would know that we believe this country and the whole world needs Jesus!” the July 16 Facebook post reads.
The organizers elaborated further on their campaign in a subsequent Facebook post on July 26, adding, “We wanted to take a stand and revive hearts that have felt despair and hopelessness as a result of today’s politics and events.”
Joyce Hubbard, one of the Jesus 2020 organizers, discussed the campaign in more detail in an interview with The Christian Post.
“We’re in a small town, and our church probably has less than 200 members. And we’ve probably had 20 to 30 people [attend] since the coronavirus,” Hubbard said.
“But we just decided that we could do something,” she added. “We don’t have to be a big church; we don’t have to be a megachurch to do something. We can get a spark. It just takes a spark to get … a fire started all around the country, so that’s what we decided to do.”
