PASADENA, Calif. (BP)--While many Christians were enjoying New Year’s Eve parties with their churches or with friends and family, a small group of people in Southern California worked to spread the Gospel to hundreds of thousands in a few short hours.
“By the end of the night we had 15 salvations and passed out over 800 brochures that shared the Gospel,” said Martin Davis, owner of a printing and graphics business in San Diego who has spearheaded a New Year’s Eve Rose Parade ministry for the past nine years. “The morning of the parade we gave out 4,000 of the brochures.”

Martin Davis shares the plan of salvation with Chris Coria of Los Angeles. She was one of 15 who asked Jesus to be her Savior on New Year’s Eve waiting to see the Rose Parade in Pasadena.
Davis produces a brochure each year listing the order of the 50-plus floats in the nationally televised Rose Parade. He includes the plan of salvation in the brochure and numbers to call for more information on becoming a Christian and finding a local church.
The brochure is given compliments of Southern Baptist churches across America and paid for by the North American Mission Board, with which Davis serves as a Mission Service Corps volunteer. He also is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee. Read More
