I received a question this week in my email:
To make a positive first visit to a church visitors home, our Evangelism Team wants to take a loaf of bread and have a meaningful conversation, do you have a script for Evangelism teams to assist in making a positive impact? Are there topics you want to stay away from? Thanks, Jimmie
In the video, I give my thoughts about this practice for churches that choose to use it.
The home visit after the first visit has been a staple of church growth tips for a long time, but since our culture has changed so much, we need to think about it here in 2009.
After watching the video, one thing I forgot to mention was to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. It might be one of those kairos moments where the conversation can go into deep spiritual things. Other times, it might simply be a brief information visit.
Your teams need to be open to deciding on the moment how far to let the visit happen.
After watching the video, what do you think?
What advice would you give Jimmie?
Share with us your thoughts.
