Holding The Ground
Whether it’s the expense, the distance, or the practical knowledge; for many young evangelist, mass evangelism crusades have seemed out of reach. We have purposed to demystify this powerful tool by training evangelist on the field. Everyone on our teams have the opportunity to minster in the crusade. There is a nightly debrief and Q & A session where we practically talk through the days events.
In our mass evangelism events we often have thousands in attendance. We worship the Lord until His presence fills the field or stadium. Then, this very alive Jesus who is the same yesterday, today, and forever does what He always does. The gospel is preached, people are healed, devils are cast out, and people are filled with His precious Holy Spirit.
Ultimately, Jesus receives His reward for suffering on a bloody the cross…SOULS!
There is no doubt that Jesus had a mass evangelism ministry. We also see this Good Shepherd leave the 99 to go after the 1. So like Him, we know we are called to make disciples. As with all our mass evangelism crusades a strong local church presence is essential to followup and discipleship. In certain regions where the church is scarce we plant a new church after each event.
