Fill a Gap in Contemporary Evangelism
The American Church can do a much better job of reaching the lost if it adds something quite different to what it has been doing for so many years. We can't afford to lose the country by not expanding our outreach strategy. Jesus sent his disciples out two-by-two to be engaged with people – personally rather than programatically. This Family & Couple Outreach Ministry will send the members of your church out in the same powerful way.
Many people return to church out of family concerns. Even USA Today on 4/6/12 wrote about churches trying to bring back people who went to church when they were kids and have been gone for 10-20 years:
"Family is often at the center of religious decisions."
The church should reach out to the lost world with actions that show concern for the unchurched where they will most appreciate it – their families and children, or for couples, the strength of their relationship. Instead of having them meet us on our turf with our agenda, let’s meet them where they are and focus on what is most important to them.
