As your Evangelism and Outreach Director, please let me remind you of the continuous importance of using some methods of evangelism and outreach even during the 2023 year..
We don’t know what the future holds. However, we do know that we are charged to work until Jesus returns. We must continue to tell people about Him and His saving grace.
People are hurting as never before. The timing is perfect for prayer and encouragement. Our job is to be faithful, not successful. God will do the rest.
Please allow me to share some methods of evangelizing, of course you may have your own methods, but these are just a few as well:
1.Daily add five (5) people or circumstances / situations to your prayer list.
2.Write five (5) notes to any church member once a month. (e-mail or text)
3.In you notes invite others outside of church membership to join our Lakewood2020 live stream on Sundays at 10:30 am.
