Our Accomplishments through Christ: Point 27 with Shields of Strength


In 2016, Point 27 shared the Word of God, engraved on Shields of Strength dog tags and jewelry, with over 96,896 individuals across the world — including members of the armed forces, veterans, military families, first responders, athletes, people battling chronic illness, and others.

The Shields serve as a physical reminder of God’s Word and His promise to never leave or forsake us, according to the Law Enforcement Commanders, Chaplains, Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. This outreach introduced people to the Lord who had never heard his message of hope and salvation and brought many of these individuals into the Family of Christ.

In addition, Point 27 used Facebook, Online Blogging, Pinterest and Twitter to share the Word of God daily, accumulating a total of 4,050 followers on Facebook, an increase of 838 people during 2016.
