Importance of Relationships as Tool for Evangelism

October 26, 2009 — 1 Comment

My next book, Eats with Sinners, is set for release on November 20th.  I believe this book has the potential of helping Christians to reach countless people for Christ.

In my book I reintroduce the Church to Christ’s primary method for connecting with people: Eating with them.

Too many people view evangelism as an argument to be won, when it really should be viewed as a relationship to be built.

Two weeks ago I came across these stats that confirm the research I did for my book.

Question: How are most people led to Christ?

2%–Walk-in (to church building)

3-5%–Preacher (they like the preacher)

2-3%–Needs met by church

1%–Home visit

.001%–Crusade

90%–Invited by Friend

Evangelism is more about relationships than most of us seem to understand.

I pray that you’ll pick up a copy of my book at the nearest bookstore next month and learn what you can do to reach your friends for Christ.

    Arron,

    Really excited about your new book!

    I work in campus ministry and folks are always giving us a hard time about how we hardly ever host an activity or event without food. We keep telling them there is something sacred that happens over a shared meal.
