Culturally relevant evangelism

answers the “actual questions”

being asked by a given culture,

What a person sees, hears, smells, tastes, touches, and experiences during his life becomes part of his thinking and value system.

These become a set of filters through which a person processes, interprets, evaluates, accepts or rejects information

“I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings” (1 Cor. 9:20-23, NIV).

The Great Apostle Paul stated:

…Missional Churches

A church becomes missionalwhen

it remains faithful to the gospel and

simultaneously seeks to

“contextualize” the gospel (to the

degree that it can) so the gospel

engages the worldview of its

hearers, the result may look different

to us, but not to God.

worldview bridges
Worldview Bridges
  • Bridges often provide openings for greater interest and relevancy of the message.
  • They are God-given opportunities
  • for witness in which a bridge
  • occurs...

Stories of God

CULTURE

Bridges are existing beliefs, interests, concerns or situations that predispose a person to the Gospel.

worldview barriers
Worldview Barriers

Barriersdeal with the negative aspects of culture, religion, knowledge, interest and other influences that hinder a listener in his hearing, understanding or acting upon the message of the Gospel.

21

slide21

Barriers are those beliefs, interests, concerns or situations that keep a person from hearing, understanding or receiving the Gospel.

slide23

There are 4 areas that affect man...

What is Done? = Behavior

Whatis Good or Best? = Values

What is True? = Beliefs

What is Real? = WORLDVIEW

slide24

Traditional Approach to Evangelism is “propositional”

What have we changed with this propositional approach?

A PERSON’S Beliefs but…

What have we not changed with this propositional approach?

Worldview = What is REAL

slide25

Other Approaches set out to Change Behavior “what is done”

MAR.KET.ING [All business activity involved in the moving of goods from the producer to the consumer, including, selling, advertising, packaging, etc.] Webster’s Dictionary While a change of behavior is the main goal, attempts are made at value and belief modifications, as well.

But again, in attempting to change behavior, what do we not change?

Worldview = What is REAL

slide26

Focusing on propositional truth or behavior change could result in SYNCRETISM.

SYN.CRE.TISM [The combination or reconciliation of differing beliefs or practices in religion] Webster’s Dictionary

That is a thin veneer of Christianity (or a thick one) over the old Worldview!

slide27

The use of the narrative- the story-addresses the very core of who we are...

…and worldview helps determine story selection, keeping in mind those bridges and barriers to the Gospel found within the culture.

slide28

Biblical scholar N.T. Wright suggests that to replace one’s life stories at the core, you do it with better stories.

And when you change the core, you can change beliefs, values, and behavior as well.

Our TraditionalProcess

to Evangelism and Church Development often includes these segments:

EVG

DISC

LDR DEV

MSSN

slide30

Our TraditionalProcess

However, the separate and independent implementation of these strategies doesn’t necessarily get us to where we want to go...

which is an evangelized, discipled, and adequately trained & equipped believer incorporated into a reproducing, indigenous church!

Our Traditional Process

We often become diversified, fragmented and off-track!

slide33

Our Traditional Process

Working a PROCESS, rather than taking a step-by-step linear approach, accelerates what we are after and helps insure that we achieve what we set out to do!

A Systemic Process

Driven by Core Biblical Truths & Worldview, each element is integrated, a vital part of the other. Evangelism is not just a step or single element leading to our goal, but is foundational… Evangelism is part of discipleship, which is part of leader development, which is part of missions, which is part of evangelism, which is part of…
