Two questions for my blogger friends: what has your church done in terms of outreach that has proven successful in reaching people for Christ, and, what curriculum has your church used that you feel has aided people in becoming better disciples?
I ask because we feel that without outreach and evangelism, the church pretty much ceases to fulfill its purpose, at least a large part of it. We want our church to grow, but not in a way that produces inauthentic discipleship or appeals to worldly principles to bring in the hoards.
We have people in our church who regularly visit with folks in our community, but we want something more encompassing, such that more people will be involved. We’re not interested in growing for the sake of growing, but in people coming to Christ for salvation and maturing as his disciples. No pandering to ears that need to be tickled, no sacrifice of theology, just people who want to share the change that God has wrought in their hearts and help others know Christ in that way.
Looking forward to your comments!
