BOLD Part 1 - The Call to Evangelism

I'M BACK!  I know I've been offline for a couple of weeks now, but I am back now and more on fire than ever.  God has really really been speaking loudly and clearly to me and I can't wait to get back on schedule (now that house is sold, Pascha week is over and week in Florida is done) and share all the good things God is doing.  

So if you thought you got rid of me....YOU WERE WRONG!

And the first thing I want to share with you today is the first message in a brand new series that I started yesterday.  It's called BOLD: All Things to All Men.  Can you guess the topic?  It's all about "evangelism" - the word that means different things to different people - and what our role is with regards to evangelism.  Trust me, it's not what you think.

Being an evangelist isn't what you might think it is.  It is something much simpler and in this message I answer the "who, what, where, when, why and how" questions with regards to evangelism.  You can check it out below.  And tomorrow, I'll resume my regularly scheduled blog posts as before.


Start Here. Start Now.

“But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”  2 Timothy 4:5

We are called to do the work of an evangelist.  Actually, let me say that more bluntly: YOU ARE CALLED TO DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST.

All week I’ve been talking about evangelism and what it is and what it isn’t.  I’ve already made it clear that evangelism doesn’t mean standing on a corner and yelling at people to repent before they go to hell (see video above for many ways to NOT do the work of evangelist).

But the issue still remains that I have to do something.  I cannot sit back and do nothing and claim that evangelism isn’t for me.  I am called to be evangelist and to do the work of an evangelist.  Whatever talents and gifts God has given me, I have to somehow figure out how to use those in a way for the purpose of witnessing for God.  And as I said yesterday, that can take many different shapes and forms, but the inescapable point is this: I AM CALLED TO DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST.

But the major question is this:  How should I start?
