Be the leader and instrument God wants to use to change the world. Are you ready to engage? The emerging generation in today's culture believes evangelism is wrong according to recent studies. Yet Scripture is clear: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19 ESV). So how do we lead people to Jesus in a church with members who think evangelism is wrong? And how do we connect people with Jesus in an ever-changing culture? How do we share Jesus in a multicultural world? Engage is a thorough guide to the daily ministry of sharing Christ with those in the world around you. This compilation handbook contains more than 30 chapters and covers effective evangelism to the elderly, children, and families while encouraging the church to become multicultural.

Become equipped to remind fellow believers of the New Testament context of evangelism, how morality can be engaged in evangelistic efforts, and lead others to understand the importance of prayer. This handbook covers these topics and so much more. Specifically, Engage offers you access to the research and tools you need to be equipped as you understand the: - Theology behind evangelism - Context of evangelism - Role of the pastor and individual as evangelist - Effective ways to reach children, the elderly, families and those marginalized by the church - Elements of effective public invitations If leading people to Jesus is your heart's desire, Engage is the resource you need.
