Jesus said, "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" (Acts 1:8, KJV).
Jesus provided a formula for the idea of outreach. He said, "Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled." (Luke 14:23, KJV).
Dr. Luke said, "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved." (Acts 2:46-47, KJV)
Our evangelism training product is based on nearly 40 years of in-field experience in training teams to tell the story of Jesus Christ.
Our approach addresses people across the spectrum of Christian and non-Christian beliefs including the person with no spiritual background at all.
We present materials using human behavioral examples so those without spiritual exposure can understand how God is reaching out to them. There are no high-pressure or salesman oriented techniques, but rather, a sincere approach to meeting needs of seekers at their point of interest. As God works on expanding that awareness, Fishers of Men trainers will move forward to meet the new needs at the next level.
Reaching out to the church's local community is becoming more difficult every year. As the United States becomes more religiously diverse, church growth from outside its walls becomes more of a challenge. This drives new techniques, fresh understandings and keen insight into the target population as individuals rather than denominations or groups.
This is not intended to say that the old techniques will not work with some people, but the growing church needs people of today's generation to propell it into the future. Understanding the new thought processes helps us to better understand how to meet people at their points of need and to respond to them with a relevant message from the Creator.
These days it is even more difficult to reach people already inside the church. Transitioning "Sunday Morning Christians" into effective vehicles for reaching inside to meet each other's needs is absolutely key to growing a church.
Remember that the only way a church can grow is if the number of people it gains is greater than the number of people it loses.
Today's church members want and expect its leaders to demonstrate at least as much love and concern for them as the leaders demonstrate toward potential members.
