Have you ever noticed how step-by-step programs for evangelism seem to come and go, much like the latest fads in business and management?

Programs might work for business endeavors, where advertising and manipulation of emotions is crucial to selling a product. But the gospel is not a product; it is a declaration of God’s love, and love doesn’t come by programs.

If you talk to 10 people on the street, you will likely find 10 different opinions about who God is, what God is like, how God deals with humans and what God expects of us.

Surveys have shown that even among Christians, ideas about Jesus, grace, sin, forgiveness, faith, repentance, obedience, etc., vary widely. How much more do ideas about Jesus vary among non-Christians?

Hi everyone, I’m here today to tell you that God loves you. Now, if you’re a Christian, you’re probably saying, “Well Dan, I know that God loves me.” I’m glad that you know that God loves you, but you know there are a lot of people out there, including maybe your neighbors and certainly the rest of humanity, that may not yet know that God loves them.

Invisible Missionaries in China

An important part of preaching the gospel effectively is being sensitive to opportunities. An excellent example of this is the current global village economy, where rapidly growing economies import labor from other countries to fill their needs.

Every month, thousands of Filipinos leave the Manila airport on their way to be overseas guest workers. Christian leaders in the Philippines realize that these workers are being allowed into places where missionaries would not be permitted, and they provide mission training to as many overseas workers as possible.
