Oftentimes as believers we can be excited about evangelism and missions on Sunday mornings, but by the time Monday morning arrives with opportunities to invite people to church, it feels a little weird, so we make excuses instead. Here are some of the most common excuses we use to justify missing an opportunity to extend an invitation:
Many churches put a huge amount of their efforts towards missions. They focus on great things like planting churches, evangelizing to neighborhoods, and sending out missionaries all over the world. But the 10-40 window is not the only window that should be focused on, because one mission field that is oftentimes overlooked is the children’s ministry right in front of them.
Now, more than ever, the world we live in is becoming “borderless.” Rather than being restricted to one location, travelling across the globe is easier than ever, thanks to the progression of technology to keep us all connected and accelerated global migration. Urbanization, pluralism, and diverse communities have also sparked strategy adjustments among churches and agencies because individual geographic locations no longer have just one culture or primary belief system, so the approach to reach people has had to adapt as well.
M3 Ministries, (Mark and Melanie) is gearing up for a March trip to the Czech Republic. Most of you know that we have made two previous trips and were blown away by how God provided for those trips and blessed the folks at Element Church and us! We were able to cast vision, train leaders, and minister to the young families of the Element Church community.
