How do we share Good News with Muslims?

By | Day 26, Uncategorized | No Comments

Following a recent webinar by Curtis Sergeant, a participant, Ken, asked, “There are many Muslim immigrants in the USA these days. What can local church members do to share the hope and help of the Good News with these new neighbors?”

Curtis answered, “My current favorite generic approach for sharing with Muslims is called the ‘Any 3’ approach.  It was developed by Mike Shipman in Indonesia.  It is best viewed not primarily as a Muslim evangelism tool (although it can serve that purpose) but as a filtering tool to help identify persons of peace.  You can Google the term.  There is also a book on it by that title.”

After a recent webinar, Judy asked, “Are there any online trainings in disciple making available in French?”

I have French versions of the booklet we use in our first level training events.  You might poke around on www.topchretien.com to see if they have something.  (I don’t think they will but you could check.)  You might also check with City Team.  They do quite a bit of training in West Africa and might have something.

Why the recent shift away from church attendance?

“How do you think the recent shift away from church attendance in developed, “Christianized” nations is connected to our dissatisfaction with present maturity in disciples? Are people just looking for a better way to be the church?”

Curtis Sergeant answered, “I don’t know.  I can think of several possible interactions between these two factors.  It is probably a combination of multiple aspects.  An organization of consumers is going to stagnate eventually.  Existing members are going to become dissatisfied if their lives are not being changed.  Non-members are not going to be attracted if members’ lives are not being changed.”

Share Your Testimony

Stop and ask yourself — when’s the last time you told someone else the story of your faith… How you came to know Christ, how He changed your life, and what kind of impact He has had. Far too many people have no clue how to get started with that story. For many of us, the first step in sharing our story is to to create it. In this video, Jon Ralls shares with us one strategy for preparing our story.
