Evangelism


Matthew 28:16-20

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

We take these words of Jesus seriously. For far too long churches have tried the “stay and attract” model of ministry, but Jesus clearly said, “GO AND MAKE.”

What are we doing in order to fulfill this commission?

  • Intensive and Informative Saturday Morning “Share Your Faith” Workshops led by our Director of Evangelism, Lee Beer, where we learn how to better share our faith.
  • Recruiting people like YOU! We ask, encourage, and train folks to share their faith in places like the local washateria, places of business, nursing homes, and other areas.
  • We also have events that are “Evangelism Lite,” to help folks become accustomed to talking to people while representing FUMC Jasper. The last event was called, “Canning Hunger” where we were able to collect over one thousand pounds of food for Jasper Share and our own Blessing Box.
  • Pastor Drew and Lee make routine trips to a famous big box store in town talking to employees and the occasional shopper about their faith. They would love company! This is a great opportunity to get thrown into the “deep end” of evangelism and faith sharing.
