When did you last invite someone to attend church?

Research reveals that only 2 percent of members invite an unchurched person to church in a given year. That means 98 percent of churchgoers never invite a seeker to church.

If your church were to disappear, would the members of your community miss it?

Seventy-five percent of the Seventh-day Adventist church members in North America who were asked this question responded, "They don't even know we are here." That's what happens when members view evangelism as something only pastors and professional evangelists do. Only when the members believe evangelism to be a way of life does the church begin to flourish.

Moving Your Church was written to encourage and equip members and leaders to successfully carry out the vision and mission of Christ in their local community. Dr. Kidder offers us this encouragement: "Through the power of the Spirit, ordinary people like you and me can do extraordinary things for God."
