Evangelism With Mr Rogers

What does Evangelism mean to you? What does Jesus want us to do? Explore with us a path for having meaningful conversations with people about things that matter to you.

The idea of Listen, Connect, and Help is a powerful plan for making meaningful connections with people so that they can experience God’s love through us.

Here is the video of Mr. Rogers being interviewed by Joan Rivers on the Tonight Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-Kp5YeqrlE The way she responds to being so highly valued is something we can all learn from. Mr. Rogers was a man who really understood the power of Love, and he helped people experience the kind of Love that God has for each one of us.

Christians have been confused over the years about evangelism, with popular sayings like “come out and be ye separate” and in turn thinking that we shouldn’t associate with sinners. But Paul makes it clear in 1 Corinthians 5 that any separation we should do from people is NOT from everyday people in the world, (These are the very people we should RUN towards and love with everything we’ve got.) but rather we should separate ourselves from church-going people who claim to be Chrisians who are also intentionally immoral when they are confronted and do not begin to take on more of Jesus kind of life. https://www.bible.com/bible/111/1CO.5.9-13.NIV

Have you ever made this clear distinction and let it inform your approach to people who do not yet know Jesus?

The Lost Art of Hearing God's Voice (Chad Johnson Pt 1)
If you've ever struggled to hear from God, or if you aren't sure that God really talks with us, we created this discussion with you in mind. A lot of times Christians can go through seasons where we don't really know how to differentiate from God's voice and the other voices around us. Was that God's voice I just heard, or was it just my imagination?
