Integrated Evangelism

I want to integrate evangelism into every hour of the week, so that Christ is carried into people’s lives, into our work, play, and socializing.

Evangelism for us isn’t relegated to a time slot, nor to one or two types of activities. In short, evangelism is practiced as a way of life. It’s not surprising, then, that barriers come down, and that people hear and believe the good news of the gospel. As Jesus said, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35, KJV).
