Thoughts on Developing New Church Evangelistic Methods

on New Church Evangelistic Methods

This nine minute video gives me a chance to lay out a few thoughts on how we share the church with new contacts.   My thinking is that there are two parts: how we share the theology and how we make people feel welcome.  Both need to be focused on in our efforts to evangelize and at home.

I believe that how we share the theology becomes more effective in the degree that we are willing to dialogue about the teachings of the church using frames of reference that the contact is familiar and comfortable with.  Often this means presenting New Church truths using Old and New Testament references to base the dialgue -rather than coming directly from the writings.

  1. Hi David,

    I am really interested in your thoughts about this topic, but your tube video seems to be broken.

  2. David,

    Great job of explaining how we need to approach people using a familiar language and meeting them on common ground before we are able to take a deeper dive into specifics of the Writings. From experience with my wife (an x-Catholic) our doctrine resonates with them, if brought to them in context of what they already know and understand – on their personal playing field, not ours.

    Thanks,

    Craig Steen
