Outreach & Evangelism

Disciple-making ministries make contact with those who do not yet know Jesus in a personal way. They provide opportunities to build relationships between those in our churches with those who are not yet a part of the community of faith. They incorporate opportunities to proclaim, hear and respond to the gospel into their ministry strategy.

Please see below resources to help your ministry with Outreach & Evangelism opportunities.

Alpha

Alpha is a resource churches use to create a space and a culture where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about Jesus. Alpha can be run almost anywhere – from a church basement to a restaurant or online, and has lasting impact on guests and church communities.

H20 (Kyle Idleman)

H2O is a seven-week experience designed to create a safe atmosphere where people are comfortable considering the person of Jesus Christ. This creative newly re-released tool meets an ancient need: sharing the truth of Jesus Christ through relationships and community. H2O transforms lives by feeding the mind, moving the heart, and stimulating the senses.

Endorsement: H2O is a really great video series which is available on Right Now Media. It is a really non-in-your-face approach to Christianity, and it is very powerful. We have led a Bible study with it a couple of times. Reccomended by Dave & Kim Maandag, Cowichan Valley

THE BOOK OF JONAH by Eric Mason

In his Bible Study on the book of Jonah, Dr. Eric Mason takes ancient text and brings relevant truth that needs to be heeded by the 21st century church as it seeks to witness and minister in the name of Christ to a post-church world. The study issues a personal challenge, bringing us face to face with the need to love all of God’s people, and to minister in places we may not be comfortable with, but where God is calling us to be. He brings a distinctly African American perspective to his teaching, reminds us that Christianity is a deep well, and that we have much to learn from different cultures, races, and ethnicities within the church fellowship on the sacred truths of God’s Word. So climb aboard and settle in as Eric reveals how God uses extraordinary circumstances to break our hearts of selfishness, convince us of His tender care, and unite our lives to His glory.
