How do you motivate a church for evangelism? And how do you keep the momentum?
The eighth part of an informal discussion about church growth and leadership between three experienced pastors: Ray Evans (Grace Community Church Bedford & FIEC Church Leadership Consultant), Paul Rees (Charlotte Chapel Edinburgh) and Michael Teutsch (Highfields Church Cardiff).
Some questions for further thought or discussion:
- Describe some of the ‘energy input’ which you have expended to get some gospel momentum going where you are. What has proven effective, under God?
- Why don’t people have enough confidence in the gospel to share it more often? How can you help to restore this?
- How do you apply an ‘as if principle’ in your church’s public meetings? How does applying this principle encourage members to invite others?
