A word from Dr. Rainer on the Seven Characteristics of Evangelistic Churches…

Read the entire post here.  As a pastor of a church I always feel the weight of this most intensely at the end of the service as I call for individuals to make a decision after I’ve preached.  Most of the time those that do traverse down the aisle are wanting to join the church, which don’t get me wrong is exciting and I’m thankful.  However, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen someone come up to me or anyone else for that matter and say, “I need to become a Christian” or “I need to get saved.”  And his post has me wondering what I need to intentionally be doing in my preaching, teaching, investing, and mentoring that will help galvanize God’s people to recklessly and zealously evangelize those around them – maybe it starts with me?
