Evangelism and Being on Mission for Jesus

By New Churches Team

Starting with the Basics

Evangelism. What is it, really? Is it finding lost people and introducing them to Jesus? Yes. But it is also more than that. It is helping them find a flourishing life in Jesus for here and now, and for the not yet. It is connecting them to a community of believers that truly want to know them and hear them, even when they disagree.

Church Leaders First

Being on mission for Jesus in our communities is not limited to church leaders. But it does start with them. Church leaders that set a good example for their congregations see their people catching that vision directly from them while also having it taught to them. Church leaders have a responsibility to be culture makers that impact the culture outside the church walls from Monday to Saturday. Questions to consider:

  1. Are you actually living out the missional lifestyle that God has called us to in your own life?
  2. Are you communicating to the people in your congregation the call and the wonderful gift of being involved in mission out at the edges?
  3. Make a significant ask.

A Holy Spirit Conversation and a Table

Darryl Johnson, pastor and professor at Regent College, said, “Evangelism is joining a conversation the Holy Spirit is already having with another person.” When you consider what that really means, the responsibility isn’t on you as an individual person to know all the right things to say and do.
