One of the evangelism techniques that we’ve had good success with in the Philippines are what we call Community Appreciation Days.
These large scale events require much planning and the participation of many volunteers from the local church. Teams of workers are assigned to cover every task from equipment set up and tear down, to food preparation and distribution, registration table attendants, musicians, singers, altar workers, children’s workers, and much more.
A few days before the event, workers begin canvassing nearby areas, inviting people to gather for a time of fun, food, live music, and door prizes!
Things kick off with lively gospel music. Some workers distribute snacks and drinks while others entertain the kids. In between the music and door prizes, someone gives a moving testimony of how Jesus has impacted their life. Every event concludes with a gospel message followed by an invitation to repent and be baptized, and the response never ceases to amaze us. There’s nothing more thrilling than seeing hundreds of seekers coming for an encounter with Jesus!
The impact of these events has been simply amazing! Thousands of souls are hearing the gospel, hundreds have been baptized in Jesus name, and many new people have been added to our churches. Thank you for your prayers and support that is making this possible!
