Evangelism is a Four Letter Word
Evangelism isn’t what it used to be and is uncertain of what it should be.
Image: Darcy Eikenberg Rev. Phil Miglioratti is the National Facilitator of Cities/Communities for the Mission America Coalition. He also serves as coordinator of the Everyday Evangelism track for Amplify 2017.I get it. Culture is changing rapidly and radically. The methods we have used successfully for decades have become ineffective, even counter-productive. Heaven? Spiritual laws? Bible verses? These no longer spark spiritual interest.

Discipleship.Network Interview Laura Sumner Truax & Amalya Campbell Authors of “Love Let Go”
Phil ~ “In four days’ time every one of our congregants would receive a check for five hundred dollars. They would be told: God trusts you to do something good in the world and so do we.” Not every congregation will have the resources that made this possible for you, but what can even the smallest, least funded congregation learn from what you experienced?
Amalya ~ Generosity starts where you are and with what you have—no matter how much or how little. We all, individually and as congregations, have something to give. A cash-strapped congregation might not be able to give everyone $500 checks, but it can offer the message that each of us is created to give, and that God has granted every one of us the resources to do it. So rather than dwelling on what the church doesn’t have, the church can ask itself, What do we have? What resources of time, skill, passion, and yes, money, do we have to offer this broken and needy world? And when a church body starts giving, it will find itself wanting to give more – because just as the New Testament tell us, generosity begets generosity.
Phil ~ Your congregation was about to receive $1.6 million from the sale of property the church had invested in decades ago. What role did prayer play in the decision to pursue extravagant giving with the money you were about to receive?
