Overview

Evangelism has nothing to do with church size but everything to do with making disciples.

Evangelism is about introducing people to Jesus but also helping them to grow in Christ. Evangelism has nothing to do with church size, but everything to do with making disciples. Making disciples is a call from God for all churches whether that church is in a declining rural community, a teeming inner city, or a sprawling suburb. In fact, small membership congregations are often more effective in evangelism then their sister megachurches. This book will help pastors have "God eyes" for big possibilities in their churches by focusing on visualizing your goals; worship; creating a loving environment; passion and commitment; prayer; witness; time management; leadership recruitment; hospitality; assimilation of new members; and managing change and conflict.
