Thursday Link of the Week: Evaluating Evangelism

This weeks link is actually a podcast episode by Thom Rainer called-  “10 Questions to Diagnose the Evangelistic Health of Your Church.”  As ABF leaders in our church I would like for you to listen and think through how that some of these principles work in your class.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • Relational evangelism without a gospel presentation is not really evangelism.
  • Once you move people to an outward focus, they stop thinking about themselves as much.
  • Many people don’t pray for lost people by name because they don’t know anyone outside their holy huddle.
  • We should be praying for eternal issues as much as (if not more than) temporal issues.
  • Becoming evangelistic requires getting outside of your comfort zone.
  • When you’re a good evangelistic leader in a church, you’re probably leading outwardly.
  • Small groups should be one of the most evangelistic tools a church has.
  • The priority of the leaders will become the priority of the church.
