Friendship Evangelism

By Mark Posey

     The Institute for  American Church Growth asked over 10,000 people this question: “What was responsible for your coming to Christ and this church?” They replied as follows…
I had a special need -3%
I just walked in -3%
I liked the minister -6%
I visited there -1%
I liked the Bible classes -5 %
I attended a gospel meeting -0.5%
I liked the programs -3%
A FRIEND OR RELATIVE INVITED ME-79%
    “Go ye” means, “Go me.”   Evangelism  that  is  most  productive  is  PERSONAL evangelism. It is seeing the soul as the most important thing in the world and targeting those with whom we come in contact each day. In this evangelism becomes PURPOSEFUL.  We can target the entire world, but we must proceed one soul at a time. Read the following passages: Philippians 2:19-24; 1 Thessalonians 1:8-10.
