* Does the "E" word make you squeamish? Discover servant evangelism and learn how this fresh approach to faith-sharing is helping churches everywhere reach their communities for Christ! Revised and updated, Sjogren's groundbreaking book explains how performing simple, unexpected services---washing windows, cleaning bathrooms, handing out free sodas---can open doors to life-changing encounters with Jesus. 256 pages, softcover from Baker.
God is seeking to enter the heart of every person on this planet. Yet, for those who are not gifted evangelists, the task of communicating the gospel can seem daunting. What if there was another way? There is, and it's called the conspiracy of kindness. Operating on a simple premise, this exciting form of servant evangelism enables every follower of Christ, from brand-new to mature believer, to become an effective evangelist through unassuming acts of kindness. In this book, Steve Sjogren offers a proven vision, simple strategy, and real-life stories that show the amazing impact servant evangelism has had throughout the world. Here's how to communicate the love of God more persuasively through actions than with words. Learn how churches, groups, and individuals have used washing windows, cleaning toilets, handing out sodas, and more to impact their communities with the life-changing love of Christ. Although a simple premise, the conspiracy of kindness principle affects both those serving and those being served. Are you ready to roll up your sleeves?
