Intro to Evangelism

jesus way
Jesus’ way
  • After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest. Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road.

Evangelism Strategies

jesus way1
Jesus’ way
  • Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!” And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the labourer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you.”’Luke 10.1-8

Evangelism Strategies

relationships key in evangelism
Relationships key in evangelism

Not all relationships are the same:

  • Passing people
  • Permanent people

Recognising how the gospel works differently

Evangelism Strategies

passing people the sprint
Passing people: the sprint

Brief contact – little relationship

  • bus stop, train, airport
  • shopping, supermarket queue
  • encounter on social mission
  • party contact
  • supplier, caller at work

Evangelism Strategies

permanent people marathon
Permanent people: marathon

Ongoing contact – deep relationship

  • workmates
  • family
  • neighbours
  • friends, sport and leisure

Defined by contact frequency and levels of trust

Evangelism Strategies

passing and permanent
Passing and permanent

Different approaches are appropriate:

With some reasons for the difference

passing = more direct

proclamation = the words we share

permanent = more lifestyle

presence = the life we lead
