Ralph (name changed) refused to attend church as a teenager. His friend had invited him several times, but he was not interested. His friend invited him to arm wrestle. If the friend won, Ralph was going to church. If Ralph won, his friend would not bother him about church again.
Ralph lost the match and went to church with his friend. There he accepted the Lord as Savior. Shortly after that, the Lord called Ralph into the ministry. He has served as a missionary to Mexico and now pastors a small country church.
What an innovative way to invite someone to church.
