If you’re like many Christians, you are so busy with day-to-day living that you may be unaware of the needs around you. In fact, you might be puzzled about how to help those who lack. Yet it’s not nearly as hard as you might think. Just take a glance at your own community.

Overview

Reaching out to others
If you’re like many Christians, you are so busy with day-to-day living that you may be unaware of the needs around you. In fact, you might be puzzled about how to help those who lack. Yet it’s not nearly as hard as you might think. Just take a glance at your own community. Mother Teresa once said, “It isn’t necessary to move to Calcutta to do something significant.” There are people in need all around you, if you only stop to look. Is there a single parent where you work? A disabled child in your neighborhood? Perhaps a family in your church who cannot afford medical insurance? These needs cry out to be met, and God’s Word says that to meet them is “pure and faultless” religion. In 101 Ways to Help People in Need, Steve and Janie Sjogren present practical and creative ways for you and your church to reach out to people with physical, emotional, and relational needs—in your neighborhood, your community, your country, and your world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Middle-class Christians who wonder how to appropriately respond to poverty may enjoy the practical, specific suggestions in 101 Ways to Help People in Need, a guide by Steve and Janie Sjogren. For an evangelical book, it has a refreshing emphasis on social justice and is chock-full of concrete ideas. The Sjogrens begin with tips for immediate relief, such as providing backpacks to the homeless and used computers to low-income families. The next steps are a bit more demanding: helping needy persons to reconcile with God and each other, creating economic opportunities for them and, finally, "relocating" to serve them better (e.g., by using vacation time to assist with house-building). Down-to-earth and compassionate, this is a valuable guide to getting started. ( May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author


Steve Sjogren is the Founding Pastor of the Cincinnati Vineyard, a church that grew from five people to 7,500 in weekly attendance with his talent team's leadership. The unique feature of this church was they literally gave up after two years of struggling to achieve 'success' and made a fateful decision - to give everything away! Numbers, attendance - such matrix factors no longer were focused upon. What counted was simply "How many can we serve, love, show generosity to?" It wasn't long before scads of people were showing up.
Steve and Janie have pioneered from scratch either alone or with a team five launch teams around the U.S. and Europe using servant evangelism as a launch approach to loving their cities and redefining God away from a "Come to us" to a "We come, we show you" approach. "Invest, fling seeds, let God take care of the details" has worked well as a motto. Very high percentages of not-yet believers have been drawn to each of their churches, daughter and grand-daugher churches. They now are in Tampa working with teams of planters. Steve writes, coaches and speaks. He aspires to connect with at least five new not yet not-yet believers each day ('Not that difficult once you get the hang of it!' he says.
