  7. We exist to reach people where they are and to help them love God and love Jesus better.

  8. First Assumption: God is doing a new thing in your church. Theologically: you are created in the image of a God who creates. God wants to create new things through you.

  9. Second Assumption: The best methods for evangelism in your community are yet to be created. The best outreach evangelism in your community is yet to be done.

  10. THE BASICS- PRINCIPLES I. Are you George Mason or UConn? • Creativity Flows from Hunger • Do you schedule time to think about how to reach lost people? • Is evangelism part of your meeting agendas?

  11. THE BASICS- PRINCIPLES II. Evangelism Begins and Ends with Jeff & Jennifer • Who is your Jeff? Jennifer? • Don’t rely on direct mail! • All evangelism is personal evangelism. • Who are you praying for?

  12. THE BASICS- PRINCIPLES III. You Choose: The Tortoise or the Hare? • Relationships vs. Attendance • Tortoise Outreach Approach thinks: “How can we make it easier for Christians to do what they want to do: start spiritual conversations with their friends?” • What do you talk about? • Think Long Term

  13. THE BASICS- PRINCIPLES IV. What’s Your Message? • Great Messaging Demands Great Care • What is distinctive about you? • Deliver what you promise.

  14. The message: God is cool Ice cream, Frisbees and marketing get the Word out You don’t have to be poor to get a handout from New Life Christian Church in Centreville, VA. You just need to watch for the church’s new ice ream truck, a $10,000 investment in public relations… MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 2005 – USA TODAY, page 4D

  16. THE BASICS- PRINCIPLES V. Kobe vs. MJ • How will you get everybody involved • The key: What can we do that will give us the opportunity to communicate vision AND create opportunities for our people to get involved in outreach? • Live out your uniqueness

  17. Mike Eppes & Rick Ruble New Life Christian Church Campus Pastors

  18. What We’ve Learned • No outreach is an island • Six to stick is okay…18 to stick is better • You don’t get what you don’t ask for • Success is measured by the number of touches • Be deliberate • Target locations • Dollars spent ≠ number of touches

  20. Wise as serpents; innocent as doves Luke 16:8-9 The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light.  I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

  21. Don’t just look back… God has something better for you than Children’s Carnivals and Ice Cream Trucks.
