Where Does Evangelism Begin?


Dear St. Clair Baptists,

 

Where Does Evangelism Start?

Evangelism in your church starts with Jesus Christ working through you! Take four stepstoward having conversations about the Gospel: 1) Lookfrom the inside of the circle (see image below) and move outward. 2) Pray for each person listed daily; tuck the list of names inside your Bible or make a note on your iPhone. 3) Talkto a each person weekly about your real relationship with Jesus—casually and confidently. 4) Watch God begin to work through you.

Thank you St. Clair Baptist Evangelism Committee and Seddon Baptist Church for a great weekend!

 

Up to the Mountains

Last year, winding through the hills of Appalachia, our mission team found new friends, a unique culture, and remarkable opportunities for the Gospel. In June, we will take 80 people from many different St. Clair churches—of different sizes and approaches—to experience the activity of God at Calvary Campus—Blackey, Kentucky. North American Mission Board Missionaries, Paul and Mary Jo Radosevich work tirelessly to communicate the life-transforming message of Jesus Christ in word and deed. We will serve in VBS, evangelism, food ministry, and construction.

 

Recently, Bill Barker of Appalachian Regional Ministry shared about delivering a tractor-trailer load of backpacks to Calvary Campus for distribution: “A group of eager men met me at the road as a I drove the truck toward the receiving area. I thought Paul and Mary Jo had organized a team to help offload the truck. They worked tirelessly unloading backbacks. After everything was unloaded, I thanked the men. Then, I realized that they were there to receive some of the backpacks for their own children. One man, with tears in his eyes, said, ‘Oh, thank you Mr. Bill! Tell all of the people who sent these to us how much they mean to us.” So, I am relaying the message to you, St. Clair Baptist Association!

 

Please pray for your St. Clair Kentucky Mission Team. We will leave on Saturday, June 16. Would you, your small group/Sunday School class, or church consider helping us by donating a few of the items on our list?Let me know that you pledge to do this by emailing chris@stcba.org.
