At the end of 2018 I was burdened with evangelism. Since I hate evangelism I avoided paying attention to what God was putting on my heart. O.K., so I don't really "hate" evangelism, I just have never been impressed with how I have seen evangelism done so I used to put down a couple tracks and call it good. However, I could not shake the call that God was putting on my heart to pursue evangelism and after a few months I gave in and began praying about it and seeking what God wanted from me.
My call was specific and two-fold. First, I was to learn to become an evangelist myself. While I did not like the idea, I have come across a few recourses that has made the learning quite enjoyable and more shockingly--exciting. The second part of the call is that I need to reach out to churches in the hopes of challenging them to make evangelism-training something that is regular and normal in their congregations. The idea is that when a congregation is evangelistic in nature, it will be doing what Jesus called it to do in Matthew 28, and that congregation will begin to grow organically rather than just swapping Christians between congregations.
Now, I offer a few different things to local churches in the area of evangelism to help their congregations learn to fully engage in the Great-Commission of Jesus. If you are interested in the idea, please take the 1 Question Church Survey by clicking on the button below. This will help you to decide if you might want my assistance or not.
I have been given a verbal confirmation from the pastor at the Armada Congregational United Church of Christ about hosting an evangelism class at their location. Contact me if you are interested in this event and I will make sure you get the details then they come. If you would like to pursue an evangelism program in your own congregation, please contact me by following the button below.
