Wisdom on Church Evangelism from Ray Ortlund Jr.

Taken from an interview on the Acts 29 Website:

What is your philosophy of evangelism in your church and what does that look like practically?

Deeply dependent on God, we try to do four things.

First: Preaching the gospel every week so that believers are built up and unbelievers can think it through.

Secondly: “Elevator conversations.” Living at our crazy pace of life, it’s rare that we can sit down with a friend for a long talk. More frequently, our interactions are like an elevator conversation between the first and fourth floors. Maybe 45 seconds. So we equip every member to do two things. One, explain the heart of the gospel, and two, give their own “what Jesus means to me,” each in a way that could be useful in an elevator conversation-format.

Third: Special bringer-events, especially music. After all, we’re in Music City USA.

Fourth: Community service. We have to prove that we care. If we don’t care, why should anyone listen to us?
