2017: The Year of Evangelism
Burleson, Texas » The Southwestern Union has placed a special emphasis on evangelism for 2017, and is offering special resources to achieve goals and objectives in evangelization, layperson mobilization, and soul winning. Among the many resources that are being made available, the Southwestern Union is offering additional financial resources to the conferences. In addition to these resources, the union staff, including administration and departmental directors, are getting involved in different evangelism campaigns throughout the territory.
Furthermore, at the beginning of the year, the union offered, through the conferences, an appropriation of $1,000 to the first 340 churches that would apply to participate in evangelism during September and October.
As of April 1, more than 400 churches had signed up. We thank the conferences’ administrations, as well as the evangelism directors, for supporting and promoting this project in their territories. And, of course, we thank our dedicated pastors for making this possible with their congregations. Also, we are promoting, in partnership with the conferences’ leadership, the plan to prepare with small groups for the reaping campaigns. The Southwestern Union developed a set of Bible studies entitled MORE HOPE, which include DVDs and lessons. If your church has not signed up to be part of the fall evangelism, and you would like to see your church be part of it, contact your conference evangelism director. God will bless your efforts and you will experience the joy of seeing souls won for Christ.
