Stepping into evangelism: new outreach resource from Church Army
If you're after practical advice and exercises to help you and your church reach out to others in word and action, a new resource could be just what you need ...
Evangelism can be a scary prospect for many people or just another thing to add to life’s to-do list.
Others may see it as merely a growth strategy for the church. Yet evangelism is so exciting when viewed from God’s perspective! It is God’s vision to see lives changed, hearts renewed, creation restored and people transformed into followers of Jesus. And the best news about all of this is that he wants us to be involved.
Here at Church Army we are passionate about resourcing and equipping people in evangelism – we’ve been doing it for 130 years! So we’ve put our heads together to produce a new resource for you and your church, Stepping into evangelism.
This 64-page booklet is filled with practical advice, tips and workbook exercises to help you share the gospel with others. Chapters include:
- Why is evangelism God’s idea?
- How to share your story
- Who can you share your story with?
- Leading people to Jesus and what next?
- How can your church reach the community?
- Changing world, changing church – exploring fresh expressions of church
- Making the most of Christmas and Easter
- Community events and outreach
- Church Army’s story
The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd Justin Welby, said: “When Pharaoh kept the people of God slaves he instructed them to make bricks but didn’t give them the straw they needed to make them. Our God is entirely the opposite – God charges us with a task then gives us what we need.
"This resource is a gift from God, via Church Army, to enable each of us to live out the most freeing, exciting and life-giving of mandates that God offers: to be witnesses to Jesus Christ. This is just the kind of thing we need.”
