I was recently reminded of a statement that we all know. That statement is, “Christians read the Bible. Non-Christians read Christians.” As people read your life and my life, what do our lives say about the Bible? What do they see about the Christ we say we serve? In the Bible, Jesus said if we are followers of Him, we will be fishers of men. As I read about the life of Jesus, Jesus encountered people where they were. He ministered to the widow of Nain at her son’s funeral. He encountered the disciples as they were fishing and mending their nets. He encountered the Samaritan woman at the well. On and on we could go with illustrations. Jesus was always meeting people where they were and spoke in terms they could understand. that related to their livelihood or activity. In the same way, we are to seek to do the same thing in our various affinity groups. The intent is to “reach people where they are”. As we reach them where they are, we can relate the Gospel to them as they are involved in their various activities. That is where they are comfortable. Often times, their “spiritual guard” is down as we seek to relate to them and minister to them where they are. Let us reflect what the Bible teaches.
Let us help you help your people focus on reaching their affinity group(s) as they learn how every church is to be Great Commission Resource Center.
GCRC (Great Commission Resource Center) helps the pastor to lead his church to reach Unengaged Affinity Groups through discovering the passion of the members and lead them to use their passion for God’s purpose of Global Redemption. The concept is simple, yet dynamic, and can lead your church to become actively involved in the Great Commission.
The GCRC concept is not another program to promote, but a concept that produces involvement; involvement which produces passion; passion which produces participation, and participation that leads the church to accomplish Acts 1:8.
Every church is a Great Commission Resource Center. The Great Commission was given to every church and every believer.
