21st Century Effective Evangelism: Engaging Church Guests

Monday, November 8, 2021 | Guest: Tim Richmond and Andrew Snavely |

Do you regularly pray for guests to come to your church? Is your church welcoming to them? Do you have a way to assimilate visitors into your church? In this podcast, Marshall Fant discusses this topic with Tim Richmond and Andrew Snavely. Over a decade ago Pastor Tim Richmond planted Grace Baptist Church in Queens, NY, and Andrew Snavely now serves alongside him as an assistant pastor. As a starting point to seeing guests come to their church, they regularly pray this three-pronged request: 1) for people in churches that no longer proclaim the Gospel to come, 2) for people whom God is convicting and drawing to come, and 3) for people who are looking for a Bible-driven church to come. Then as they see God answer prayer, they try to look at their church service through the eyes of a visitor, develop a conversation, enlist the church people, and follow up. Listen to this podcast for some practical ideas about how you can engage believers and unbelievers who visit your church.
