Overview

Some churches are great at evangelism. They reach out to the unchurched or the ex-Christians and make clear God's love for them using words that touch hearts. Other churches are great at service, and attentively care for the needs of their community. But few churches are good at doing both at once. The gospel of Jesus Christ encompasses God's response to every dimension of human experience and need, and churches need not sacrifice evangelism in favor of service (or vice versa).

This 28-page resource will help you consider ways to serve your community while still preaching the gospel of Christ.
