2 Five Keys to Renewing Evangelistic Growth in Your Church By Thom Rainer What can we do to help the churches in our state become more evangelistic? We need more good evangelism programs. Why aren t you providing them? Why are we reaching fewer unchurched people than we used to? Those three questions were asked of me in the span of a just a few days. Each of them came with hints of frustration, confusion, and anger. It is true. Most churches reach fewer lost and unchurched people than they did in the past. It is no longer necessary to be a part of a church to be culturally accepted. That pool of immediate evangelistic opportunities has been reduced dramatically. Is there hope? Absolutely! I am observing carefully churches in North America that are truly making an evangelistic impact. Most of them transitioned from evangelistic apathy to growth. Though there is no formulaic approach or magic-bullet program, here are five common themes I see repeatedly: 1. A small group of church members dedicated themselves to pray for an evangelistic harvest. Evangelism is not a human-devised program. It is a Spirit-led endeavor. I am saddened when I see churches with no intentionality about praying for evangelism and the lost in the community. It is absurd to think we can separate prayer from evangelism. And they devoted themselves to... prayer... And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved (Acts 2:42, 47). 2. Pastors make evangelism a personal priority. I have yet to find evangelistic churches where the pastors have not committed themselves personally to evangelism. It s not easy. Pastors are pulled in a multiplicity of directions. It is easy to respond to the tyranny of the urgent. Pastors must make time to make personal evangelism a priority. Church members must give them time to do so. Leaders in the church teach church members to invite people to church. Most church members do not realize what happens more than half the time when they invite an unchurched member to church. They show up at church! Such is the reason I encourage leaders to have a singular day focused on inviting people to church (We created a resource to help in that process called Invite Your One). Though a single day of inviting people is not another magic-bullet solution, it does typically create a positive ethos toward inviting people. 1. These churches love the communities in which they are located. I love the focus on the nations evident in many of our churches. I love the national church planting emphasis we see in many places. But churches that are evangelistic do not forget that the commission of Acts 1:8 begins with Jerusalem, the local community. What percent of your church s budget goes to direct ministry and evangelism in the community? 2. These churches have consistent, usually weekly, efforts to connect with unchurched people in the community. The efforts may be as simple as Facebook ads or communications with new residents. It may be a basic campaign to reach out to those who have visited the church. These efforts are not solutions in themselves, but they do help create an outwardlyfocused ethos in your church. What is your church doing to reach people evangelistically in your community? Page 2 Mt. Zion News

FOCUS ON MISSIONS APRIL2017 As I look out my window, I see lovely flowers blooming and trees budding. Spring is here and God has painted the landscape in beautiful colors for our enjoyment! We are blessed! We had a wonderful WMU Annual Missions Celebration on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, at First Baptist of Haw River. The members of the church were great hosts and our Area II churches provided delicious refreshments. We thank each person for helping us have a wonderful night. We had 70 people in attendance. Our special music was Amazing Grace by Holly Hunter, soloist. Holly is a talented young lady and we thank her for sharing her talents with us. Our guest speaker for the evening was Amy Pardue Boone, the Executive Director/Treasurer of WMU NC. Amy shared with us the activities of WMU NC and told us of opportunities. She shared her life on the mission field with us also. She made us laugh and she also brought tears to our eyes. It was such a blessing to have Amy with us! WMU Missions Extravaganza was held March 24-25, 2017, at First Baptist of Greensboro. Our theme for this year in WMU is BY ALL MEANS and this was also the emphasis for this event. We had many great speakers and missionaries that made it a wonderful weekend. To keep from interfering with other events, it was voted on to move Missions Extravaganza to the last weekend in April starting in The Picnic for the Visually Impaired will be held this year on May 9, 2017 at 6 pm at Riverside Baptist. This event is always a blessing. Please plan to attend. This month as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I hope each of us will share the story of our Lord in greater ways than ever to the ones around us.
