Discover Banquet Evangelism
We had been discussing the matter for several hours: What is the most effective way to reach a city for Christ? We evaluated many traditional methods but felt they were lacking in the dynamic that reaches the hearts of people. Finally, we agreed to continue our discussion in the morning.
At the time, I had been in the middle of writing a series of books on the commands of Christ, and the command I was working on that week was “Bring In the Poor.” As I meditated on the command that night, I realized that “banquet evangelism” might be our answer! When we got back together, we all agreed to try it.
