Podcast Episode #048

Evangelistic conversion is solely the work of the Holy Spirit. No matter what method, idea or strategy you use, it will not be successful in human power alone. Yet, depending on what metric you use, just around 1 in 20 churches are growing through conversion growth. So this week, we discussed nine ways churches can become more evangelistic.

  1. Pray that the church will become more evangelistic.
  2. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel.
  3. Become accountable to someone else for sharing the gospel.
  4. Start new groups. 
  5. Preach the gospel.
  6. Celebrate new believers.
  7. Get the gospel in all the ministries.
  8. Evangelize young people in the church.
  9. Have a meal with a non-believer.
