411 Evangelism Model

Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in what is called, “The 411 Evangelism Model.” The 411 has been very helpful in sharing the Gospel in different ways that is discussed into 5 parts. The parts go as following: Why? Who? What?-15 Sec. Testimony and the Three Circles When? 4 Responses to the Gospel In the next post I will begin with the, “Why?” of evangelism. Each post will be explained in detail. As you practice the 411 it will become more clear to you.

Helpful Ways To Be Intentional In Your Quiet Times

Many things can be done to start making your quiet times intentional. One way is by setting goals (big or small). Goals can be set by deciding factors such as time, days, how often, how much and more. You can set goals on when to worship, pray, read the Bible, create art and so on. I encourage you to write down your goals. Writing your goals down can help you in the process. Each time you have accomplished a goal you can check it off your list. Doing so will help you see the process and how far you’ve come in accomplishing your goal. Ask yourself these questions when setting goals: 1. What is the best time to do quiet

Why Quiet Times Are Important

Quiet times with God are so important on various levels. Think about it. You are spending time alone with God. Your time with the Lord can have a big impact on your life. Quiet times can be spent listening for the things He has to say, talking with Him, reading the Bible and so much more! We all know reading the Bible can be boring and hard to understand, but that’s a good reason to ask Him for the interpretation of what your reading. Just by spending time with Him you can get to know God’s heart. So what are some benefits to quite times? The benefits according to Pastor Greg Burdine’s article, “8 Benefits of having a daily Quiet

Why We Need Missionaries

Why do we need missionaries? Missionaries play an important part in sharing the Gospel with people. Without missionaries in the world less people would hear the Gospel. Especially in places where Christianity is not allowed. Global Frontier Missions states, “It is estimated that of the 7.47 billion people alive in the world today, 3.15 billion of them live in unreached people groups with little or no access to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Joshua Project, there are approximately 16800 unique people groups in the world with about 6900 of them considered unreached. The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and less than 10% of missionary work is done among these people…” (https://globalfrontiermissions.org/gfm-101-missions-course/the-unreached-peoples-and-their-role-in-the-great-commission/) The 10/40 window consists

Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 3

In 2014 Dan Baumann came to teach at my Discipleship Training School through a missions organization. He spoke on “Intimacy with Christ.” He shared his testimony of his time in Iran where he was held captive. His testimony is mind blowing! Dan also has a few books he wrote. One is called, “Imprisoned in Iran.” His book is sold on amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Imprisoned-Iran-Victory-International-Adventures-ebook/dp/B0073OIIRS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1546110265&sr=8-2&keywords=imprisoned+in+iran+dan+baumann.

Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 2

Here is the story of one Korean-American missionary man; Kenneth Bae. He was on the media such as CNN, CBS This Morning and USA Today. People heard about him. Last month at a conference I got to hear him personally share his testimony, which brought me encouragement and hope. He spoke of a time he was working in China. On his last tour he brought Christian tourists to pray, worship and see the land there. By mistake he brought a hard drive containing western media on N. Korea that led police to believe he was trying to overthrow the Gov’t with prayer and worship. He was detained and charged with other crimes. The arrest led to a death sentence or
