9 Evangelism strategy 101To effectively win your city for God and enforce the Kingdom you need to implement an effective evangelism strategy. Here below is such a strategy.Open air services:This strategy was effectively use by the church in the eights and many a sinner come to know the Lord at such events. If carefully planed and executed this can also be the birthing place of the spirit of evangelism in the local church.Cottage meetings/ house church:Our Lord was very fond of this strategy as he would visit and minister to people on a level that was none threatening. A cottage meeting is truly taking the church to the people. The House Evangelist can use this strategy to initiate that family into the local church.Many people will not necessary come to your church but they’ll welcome the church into their homes.To conduct this type meeting does not require a crowed. So al you need is three to four people.The House churches are where you minister direct to the community especially those who don’t come to church on a Sunday.The house church is the drag net that brings in a greater harvest.You can have a house church within every street. Thus making it easy for the people in your community to attend a church.Evangelism team:This team must be under the leadership of an evangelist.They are responsible for all the churches evangelistic outreaches. This team should consist of both brothers and sisters. As they will also be the ones to go two by two into homes of people as House evangelist.
10 Home Cells :This is the discipleship leg of the strategy. This is where you take the new converts to begin their initiation into the live, program and traditions of the local church.Homes cells are especially effective if combined with the Cottage meetings.First you win them at the Cottage meetings then you transfer the saved to the cells for discipleship training and church initiating.
