Why Evangelism Isn’t Only for Extroverts (These 4 Boxes Will Help Tell You Why)

Today’s guest post comes to us from Jason Evans for ChurchPlants.com.

Third Space’s guest speaker shared this diagram from Loren Mead, “Quadrilateral of Evangelism–How do we choose to live our faith?”

Along with the “quadrilateral” were these questions:

1. (Rel./Sec.) Do we prefer to seek God in heaven or by bringing God’s kingdom to earth?

2. (Ind./Soc.) Do we prefer to seek out God through a personal relationship or our community?

3. How do we choose to live today? How do we think we should?

4. What can we learn from each other?

Too often evangelism is thought to be for extroverts or a particular brand of Christianity. While imperfect, I found this helpful in considering how each of us engage God and the world. I imagine that simply articulating for yourself how you engage makes the conversation about how you approach evangelism easier.
