info_outline Why do you do Evangelism that way? 03/14/2023
Why do you do Evangelism that way? A conversation about outreach and sharing the Gospel and how we could do it better. We are passionate about evangelism here at the 1M Project. According the the Joshua Project, the United States has 15,178,000 people listed as being unreached. This same website uses the following term to describe what ureached means according the them; "An unreached or least-reached people is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance. The original Joshua Project editorial committee selected the criteria less than or equal to 2% Evangelical Christian and less than or equal to 5% Professing Christians." Our ministry is based out of Muskegon, Michigan where more than 70% of our population report being unchurched. Given this percentage, that means that there could be as many, if not more than, 123,000 people in our community who have not heard, or simply do not understand the Gospel. On today's show we sit down and talk with, Pastor Rob Cook, from Central United Methodist Church. We talk about his own personal journey with faith, the methodist movement, and different forms of evangelism. Our goal is to unite with our brothers and sisters to evangelize and disciple our community. Let's Connect! Website: Facebook:
