A BIG PART of making disciples is moving them from “learners” to doers. The Inviting Church resource is a Spirit-led, church-wide campaign that equips the church to plan, invite, and host outreach events and special Sabbath services.

The Inviting Church resource is not a recipe, but a relationship with Jesus that fuels your church with the love and courage to invite friends, neighbors, and relatives to your outreach events. This resource is filled with stories and sermon materials. Also, disciples put into practice what they are learning through the small group’s unique curriculum, and the groups meet for only six weeks.

From planning and organization to implementation, including small group outlines, The Inviting Church resource contains everything you’ll need. Make the principles your own, and apply them to your ministry circumstances.

The Inviting Church resource was developed over 10 years in an average size Adventist church, not a mega church. This resource was field tested in diverse congregations with consistent results. It’s a blessing. It’s exciting, and it can happen in your church.
