1.ACTION TO LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST AND ASSIST THEM GROW IN THEIR FAITH
In other to lead people to Christ and assist them grow in their faith, crazy faith takes the following approaches into consideration
- Operation Reach-Out to 1000 People for Christ and Winning 100 every month in 10 days.
This Operation Reach-Out enables Christians to be able to reach out to 12000 or even more people for Christ within one year. The task is dedicated to Christians who can dedicate 10 days in a month to do effective evangelism. The objective of this operation is to enable Christians to be able to make evangelism their life style and a routine wherever they are and in whatever field they are into. Also it will enable Christians reach out to as many people as possible (friends, family, neighbors, colleagues etc.) within a defined period of time. Meanwhile the remaining 20 days of the month is dedicated for basic follow up, prayers for new converts and basic orientation for those who are interested to join the challenge in the coming months.
2. Network Evangelism
Network marketing has been a recent trend in the world for the past few years and it’s been gaining grounds. Amazingly many people have been growing in this business which is an alternative source of income. What amaze me in network marketing are the adverts and different strategies people put in place to get customers and to even sell their products. According to Wikipedia, Evangelism Marketing is an advanced form of word to word marketing in which companies develop customers who believe so strongly in a particular products or service that they freely try to convince others to buy and sell. The customers become voluntary advocates actively spreading the word on behalf of the company. Recently I have been pondering on how these networking ideas could be put into biblical evangelism. If Churches groom Christians who believe so much in Christ, such that they can convince other Christians all over to join them in advertising Christ and make the world know how good Jesus is and how ready he is at all times to accept those who are ready to receive him then biblical evangelism will bring a lot of change in this world. As a net work marketer for you to really be effective and sincere in making more money, you have to know the business, trust the business and trust the products. Now if you know Christ and trust him and his father God then you are about getting into the best kind of business ever. If you have been excelling in network marketing then you can also excel in Evangelism provided you are a child of God. All you need to do is apply the same principles of growth then you are good to make heaven smile.
