November Sermon Series

November Series 1080.jpg

Romans 10:14-15, NRSV…How are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

This series will focus on our goal to teach our congregation how to be effective evangelists. It’s not about forcing scripture on people, but simply about sharing through building relationship/rapport. Moreover, there are ways to be a witness for Jesus through action and deeds that far outweigh words! We'll lay out 5 simple steps to Sharing Christ with others that are sure to make an IMPACT, and they are as follows:

 

Five Steps to Being An Effective Evangelist 

  1. Listen for challenges

  2. Support with positive energy and concern

  3. Share your story of God's grace to you

  4. Ask if it is ok for you to pray for them

  5. Ask if you can pray with them now!

I ask that you be in prayer, throughout this series, that our congregation will gain clearer insight on becoming a more effective witness (evangelist) for Jesus Christ, and begin to employ these basic principles for reaching others.

Finally, this sermon series is developed as a part of our IMPACT 365 theme for 2019, and serves as a pre-cursor to the Evangelism 101 Class, that Bro. Ricco Brown along with the Witness-Evangelism Team are developing for the members of JOF to get engaged. Join me next month as we delve into this series to see what God has to say to us about His desire for us to be His witnesses!!
