April has been a busy month of networking with pastors.
Because of the gift of a car last year, we’ve been able to get around the city with greater ease and meet with pastors.
I had lunch with one pastor that I’ve been getting to know for a few months. In January, I gave a workshop at his church (Read: You’ve Given me Liberty)
He invited me to do another one this past week.
Evangelism and Prayer
One aspect of the work of evangelism is prayer. Since evangelism is ultimately a spiritual work, prayer prepares the way.
Vida Abundante church is launching a few different evangelism campaigns this year, and the training supported that work —
- Their bread of life visitation ministry,
- The ministry truck from which they do street outreaches,
- as well as ongoing relational evangelism work.
Using some material from PRMI’s Prayer Ignite, plus my own material on evangelism, we spent about 1 hour in teaching about effective prayer and particularly how to pray for friends to come to faith.
We sent some deliberate time in building a prayer list to use in our regular devotional times.
I hope to be able to join them in some of their street outreaches this year and see how they are applying the training that pastor is letting me do.
