Evangelism & Church Growth

Thriving churches have a variety of outward focused ministries whose goal is to share the Gospel of Christ with the community around their ministry area. Understanding the community around the church is often difficult without proper tools. These resources will help the church become more outward focused.

Evangelism Resources from the BGCT

Church Consultations: Trained consultants stand ready to help your church evaluate its evangelistic efforts. A consultant will come to your church and help your leaders diagnosis the current situation, conduct surveys of your church and community, and suggest ways of matching your resources with your needs. Consultations can last a few hours or as long as a number of days and should be followed by an evaluation of progress and effectiveness. Contact us. E-mail: evangelism@bgct.orgPhone: 214-828-5117

Customized Evangelism Strategy Development: Evangelism consultants can work with your church, or groups within your church, to better understand the community in which you minister and the types of evangelism that might prove most effective. God is greater than any human model, but experience indicates that some types of communities respond more readily to certain models of evangelism than to others. We can help reduce frustration by helping identify the modes of evangelism best suited to the field in which God has placed your church. E-mail: evangelism@bgct.org , Phone: 214-828-5117

Evangelistic Preaching: This half-day conference provides principles and practices for preparing and delivering evangelistic messages and how to give an evangelistic invitation. Contact us. E-mail: evangelism@bgct.org , Phone: 214-828-5117

Satellite "Seed" Congregations: Reach and baptize people for your church by �satelliting� your congregation beyond the walls of the building. The BGCT can help by equipping your laypersons as leaders of no-cost, simple congregations among unreached pockets of people. These satellite congregations generally meet in homes and are affiliated with your church as its sponsor, contributing to your church�s overall impact in the community. E-mail: churchstarting@bgct.org Phone: 214-828-5117

Prayer-Based Organic Church Planting: Use a prayer-walking strategy (pdf) to reach people in public settings � such as gated apartment communities, parks, corporate break rooms and recreation centers � and form them into a congregation. This outreach strategy does not involve events, or advertising, but rather requires the commitment of volunteers. E-mail: churchstarting@bgct.org Phone: 214-828-5389

Multi-Housing Church Planting: Reach out to people living in apartment complexes, mobile home parks and dormitories by equipping leaders for ministries in those types of living environments. Leaders will be trained for simple, on-site extensions of the church body. E-mail: churchstarting@bgct.org Phone: 214-828-5117
