Just like you, as a pastor/leader my heart has always been to see people come to receive Christ as their Savior and walk with Him the rest of their lives. We know that our greatest resource to reach the lost is the believers in our church body; the challenge is how to train and equip them to accomplish the task.
You can’t reach your city alone. Your church body needs a strategy.
Something biblical, because it must be built on Jesus.
Something simple, that can be implemented immediately.
Something practical, that doesn’t add to their busy schedule, but uses the schedule they already have.
Going Around The Corner is a biblical, simple, and practical strategy that can transform believers into passionate, confident Christ-followers who have a desire for people to know Jesus. Building on the sovereignty of God, they will become aware that God has placed them in a mission field right in front of them, in their neighborhoods and workplaces, and be equipped to share the gospel.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You train the trainers.
Gather your high school, college, and adult small group leaders and go through the Going Around The Corner study together. Equip them to lead.
They train the believers.
Your small group leaders take their groups through the study. Ideally, your small groups are community based, and will implement the principles in the study right where they live.
The gospel is shared.
Be strategic. Where do your church members live? Give your people a vision for their own neighborhoods and workplaces. As believers catch the vision, the gospel will go forward.
Believers disciple new converts.
Going Around The Corner contains two chapters on equipping and establishing new believers, which your people can use to disciple a new believer, someone they led to Christ, teaching them to share their story.
New converts mature, and begin sharing their faith.
The end goal is mature believers who are confident in sharing their own story of salvation, and the complete gospel story. The cycle continues, and the kingdom grows, as well as your local church.
