Jon Acuff in Indy: Do Over Tour

What if you could change the way you looked at your job and your career?

What if you could rescue Monday, reinvent your work, and never get stuck again?

Those are some of the questions Jon will be answering at a book signing for his latest book, Do Over! He will be at the Carmel Barnes & Noble (14790 U.S. 31, Carmel) on Thursday, October 15th from 7-8:30PM. Be sure and register if you plan on attending!

In his words:

The last tour was awesome! In addition to signing books and hanging out with so many friends, I got to do a live illustration of the four career transitions everyone will experience.

A tour might feel a little old fashioned what with the webinars and the Lady Gagas and the hippity hop snapchat these kids are doing these days. But the more time I spend online, the more I realize offline matters more. That’s why I can’t wait to meet so many of you and hear about your Do Over stories.

This event is free, but space is limited. Register to reserve your spot!

Give Eight Days of Hope

When disaster strikes, Eight Days of Hope is there, through an outreach called Hope Reigns. This ministry provides rapid-response volunteer teams to disaster-stricken areas. Currently, they’re helping flood victims in South Carolina pick up the pieces of their lives.

“Our hope and goal is that people see Jesus Christ in us,” says Steve Tybor, the cofounder of Eight Days of Hope/Hope Reigns.

Eight Days of Hope began their efforts in South Carolina on October 10th and will serve there for several weeks. If you’d like to volunteer, email hopereigns@eightdaysofhope.com or call (256) 503-1024.

One team from Kokomo will be serving from Sunday, October 18th through Monday, October 26th. If you would like more information about that team, email hannah@rivut.com or call (765) 438-1228.

Detailed Volunteer Information

“I truly believe God is opening doors for us to walk through, but we have to walk through them.”

Hope Reigns will be headquartered and staying at:

Crossroads World Outreach Center
2606 Emanuel Church Rd.
West Columbia, SC 29170

Please note:

  • When you arrive at our headquarters, go to our registration area and fill out a Volunteer Release Form. A member of the admin team will show you around the facilities, answer your questions, and if you arrive early enough, send you to a job site.
  • ALL volunteers must be at least 18 years old, and NO pets are allowed.
  • ALL volunteers using chainsaws MUST be certified by Hope Reigns (we try to give volunteers an opportunity to be certified at each event).

What to expect:

  • Our typical serve day begins with lights on at 6 am, breakfast at 6:30 followed by a devotional.  After the devotional, we go over any daily announcements/instructions, organize into teams, and depart for the job sites. We arrive on the job sites around 8 am and lunch is served onsite between 11 am and 1 pm. We leave the job site around 4 or 5 pm and have dinner around 6 pm followed by an evening devotional around 7 pm. Following the devotional, there is free time for showers, fellowship, etc. until lights out at 10 pm. (On Sunday’s, we usually worship with the host church and begin our serve day around 1 pm.)
  • You will be assigned to a crew each morning. Each crew is led by a job leader, who is responsible for overseeing the work and the crew. Job leaders are identifiable by their yellow vests (crew members wear orange vests). Your job leaders were chosen through much prayer so please respect them and the decisions they make.

We provide:

  • Free lodging at the church (women and men sleep in separate areas)
  • Showers
  • Free meals
  • Tools and all necessary equipment. But our biggest task will be completing mud outs and if you have a power washer, electric water pump, shop vac, wheel barrow, or brooms, please bring them
  • Devotions from God’s word and great fellowship!

You will need to bring:

  • A humble servant’s heart
  • A Bible
  • A sleeping bag, cot, or air mattress and blankets
  • Towels, soap, and shampoo
  • Work clothes, boots, and gloves
  • Bug spray and sun block
