Evangelism can be like putting a cup of coffee in the fridge: the temperature in the fridge goes up for a while but it soon settles back down. To keep the temperature up across the church, leadership is key (2 Timothy 2 v 2).
Are there people in your church with a heart for evangelism and/or are leading it who need direction, prayer, encouragement or ideas—or is that you? Do people in your church need help to recognise the gift of evangelism in others and themselves? If so, please get in touch.
Examples of work I have done…
Developing a church’s evangelism team for long term impact
Suggesting possible links between churches to share resources
Meeting up with a church’s evangelism lead for a curry (hard work I know….)
Here are some websites that I have recommended to churches to use to follow up with people:
Christianity.org.uk – answering some basic and deeper questions.
Request.org.uk – says it is for schools but is for anyone, with emphasis on Jesus.
Solas-cpc.org – short videos answering objections about Christianity.
Here are some leaflets that I have used to give to people at the end of an evangelistic event:
The way to life by Lifewords – bible verses with minimal explanation and pictures.
The Remedy by The Good Book company – uses illustrations for more contemporary feel.
Soul(food) – with different themes has a thought and link to sign up to mobile or email messages.
Here are some books that I would recommend to help people think about Christianity:
It makes sense by Stephen Gaukroger – clear answers accessible to all.
Making sense of God by Tim Keller – making the case for the relevance of Christianity to sceptics.
A Hitchhiker’s guide to Jesus by Bruce Fisk – part travel guide, part theological book.
