2012 Corporate Evangelism and Witnessing
« on: May 15, 2012, 03:53:23 PM »

Quite important issues in this lesson.

Who decides what? Church Board or Members?

Some of our leaders feel uneasy when church members arrange meetings at times when they have also planned meetings and members are uncertain which one to attend.

A good "event planner" in charge of the church calendar should take care of such conflicts. 


I believe the church in business session should decide on what evangelism is done.  More than anything else, it will help them to "own" it also and be more willing to work at it, be a part of it.  I generally do this with the women at the church in that I have a meeting to discuss what is to come.  It works really well, I get great support that way.

Church Bulletin printed in a small church. Sabbath morning 5 minutes before the meeting is to begin a "professional" musician arrives and declares those hymns are unfit and should be changed.

The preacher has spent much time to prepare a special sermon for his people. When he get to the church a person who knows everything has decided his visitor must get to the pulpit that day?

A year ago the conference started plans for special youth activities during a special week, and all the participants are ready.

Later a bright youth discovers there is a more spiritual way of doing things and gets a greater part of the young people to take part in his activities.

Is this good for the church?

Very important points, Di. Good preparation.

"All labor and all achievement springs from man's envy of his neighbor"  Eccl. 4:4.

Paul seems to approve this in evangelism. What does he mean? Pilippians 1:15-18.

No, that is confusion.  If he indeed found a better way of reaching the youth, and I don't doubt that he might have, then he should have gone through the proper channels.  Worked within the system to make the program already in progress more relavant.  Things must always be decent and in order. He can't just hijack the program like that........creates devision....It's like using the devil's tools to attempt to do the Lord's work.

No, who is the professional?  And why should anyone listen to them?  Again, order.  The muscian should have spoked with the pastor, preferrably after services, and explained his position.  Order......

And this one is just rude...........None of these examples are anywhere near right.  None should take place.  But Pstor Johann, I will be using these examples when I teach tomorrow morning.
