Last week in the first part of this blog series, I explained that a new trend is emerging in parts of the country — places that traditionally have been more religious are now starting to resemble highly unchurched areas, like New York and California.

Summer is for Outreach (Part 2 of 2)

In the first of this two-part blog post, I defined Servant Evangelism as doing intentional acts of kindness with the express purpose of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. It’s a powerful tool, especially when it comes to reaching the unchurched. It’s called Servant Evangelism (SE), and it can easily become part of a healthy evangelism system inside of your … Read More
