Missional Training #8 – Engaging people where they’re at and where you live


On the night in which Jesus was betrayed, he exorted his followers to live in a community of live.  He said,

 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)

We’re called to be a community that is exemplified by love, and that witnesses through that that community to the love of Christ.

Watch this short video about this man’s attempts to reach others:

  1. What was his big mistake in planning his large event?
  2. What eventually built relationships that led to sharing the Gospel?
  3. Where are people already meeting in your community?  How can you engage people in those  venues for the sake of buidling relationships? 
  4. What is keeping you from going there?  How can other Christian help you
  5. How does working together with other Christians make evangelism and community building easier?
  6. What are your Christmas plans?  Can you help hold a Christmas party for your neighborhood or social group?  Are their already Christmas parties going on that you can “bring the better wine” to? 

For my Core group, Read the Gospel-Centred Life Chapter 8, Look Forward to Eternity.
