What is evangelism? Who can effectively “do” evangelism? How often? And where?

If you have asked any of these questions, this book is for you. Its purpose is to help you examine and expand your definition of evangelism, and form a picture of the right place of evangelism in the life of the local congregation. It will also assist you in developing a strategy for evangelism that will work in your community.

As you will learn in the first chapter, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America is growing at a significantly lower rate than in the rest of the world. In fact, if the present decade follows its current trend, it will show the lowest growth rate in the Adventist church’s history.

Author Dr. Lary Brown proposes that returning to a view and practice of evangelism consistent with a biblical understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit through spiritual gifts will reverse that trend. He also offers practical solutions to the challenges likely to be encountered during the process of adopting natural evangelism as a permanent way of life in the local congregation.

Through natural evangelism, your church can be one in which the Holy Spirit is free to work without reservation. If you have wanted to participate in evangelism, but always thought you didn’t have the necessary gifts or talents, you will be pleasantly surprised!
