Greetings all NWBC friends!
I just wanted to let you all know of something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while and have let slide. However, Paul Witte called me up today and suggested it, and I got really excited. Paul and I are going to spearhead some evangelism outings, and this Sunday is going to be the first.
How do you feel about evangelism?
Whenever people talk about evangelism or even about talking about Jesus with others outside the church, people tend to get a little uncomfortable. Some people are afraid they won’t know what to say. Some people aren’t convinced that it’s really important. But most of us are simply out of practice.
We’re going to make it fun!
So this Sunday, after our worship service, Paul and I are going to head on out to the Lincolnwood mall, have some lunch in the food court, and then go out into the mall to try to strike up one or two spiritual conversations with some people. The whole thing won’t be much longer than 90 minutes, and I think it will be a lot of fun to be able to get back together afterward and share our experiences with each other.
I’m going to teach you some skills.
Also, I’m planning to bring some tools to pass out and I’ll be teaching you three easy methods to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger.
- The “Journey Guide”
- The “Survey”
- The “Common Ground”
I’d love for you to join us!
So, I can’t give a personal invitation to all of you, but I can send out this note. Would you consider taking a few minutes of your Sunday afternoon to join Paul and me in building our skills in sharing our faith?
