Region 8 church hosts "Wild Game Dinner"

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 church hosted its 15th annual Wild Game Dinner Saturday evening.

Forest Home Church of the Nazarene invited people free of charge to feast on elk, bison, buffalo, duck, alligator and plenty of other wild delicacies for the event. The Wild Game Dinner was geared towards men and their sons.

"This is a community outreach mission that we have in mind, and we've got three main goals here," said Ken Tidwell.

Tidwell said those three goals were to fellowship, eat great food, and hear from a special speaker who has a unique way of teaching, using dogs to spread the gospel.

Hank Hough, founder of Kingdom Dog Ministries, spoke to the group after dinner.

"Kingdom Dog Ministries is the use of champion Labrador retrievers to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. It started in duck blind. I was begging God to use me. I couldn't sing. I couldn't dance. I couldn't talk in public, and I'm asking God to let me do something, and He gave me a dog."
