True Love Waits goes to the Web in ‘Seize the Net’ thrust Feb. 14

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–On Feb. 14, students around the world are being asked to sign and e-mail True Love Waits commitment cards over the Internet by logging into www.truelovewaits.com. When they log onto the True Love Waits home page, teens will find a pledge card, which can be filled out and e-mailed to TLW headquarters. A live counter will show the totals as they are tallied. The 2001 Internet campaign, which gives students outside the United States equal opportunity to participate, is called “Seize the Net.”

The covenant cards teens are asked to sign read: “Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate, and my future children to be sexually abstinent from this day until the day I enter a biblical marriage relationship.”

Those who want to participate in Seize the Net activities can use the following guidelines, according to True Love Waits officials in the Nashville, Tenn., office.

In January and early February, youth leaders and students are being asked to schedule Bible studies, discipling experiences, worship services, ring ceremonies, retreats, DiscipleNow weekends, campus club Bible studies and other experiences to prepare students for a commitment to purity.

On Feb. 14, students who want to make a True Love Waits commitment should log into www.truelovewaits.com and sign the online commitment card.

On Feb. 15, churches or civic groups are asked to schedule city or community-wide Seize the Net celebrations.

Resources that can be used throughout the campaign include TLW Takes a Look at Courting, Dating, and Hanging Out, True Love Waits Seize the Net manual and True Love Waits Seize the Net wallet commitment cards (20 per pack).
