Evangelist Doug Lowery has been here for Spiritual Emphasis Week at Mentor Christian School and Youth Meetings at Bible Community Church. Last night he presented a very good training time for the adults regarding evangelism. His teaching was based on Jesus' interaction with the woman at the well (John 4). And afterward he met with the Christian Service Fellowship advisors. It was time well spent.
During that time, we planned out our week with the teens. Wednesday and Thursday we will have a time for training with the teens. Friday (see picture) we will be having an evangelistic outreach for teens. While I favor one-on-one evangelism over crusade type evangelism, I think this will be a good way to present the gospel to those who attend.
Please be in prayer for our teens as they invite their unsaved friends, the evangelist as he proclaims the gospel, and the rest of us as we seek to minister to all who attend. We hope that it will be an enjoyable time for the teens (we've been working them hard all summer) but also want to ingrain in their minds the need to daily be sharing the gospel with those around them. That's a challenge for us as well. Thanks for praying.
