The mission of our church is not primarily a program but a way of life. To that end, we encourage every church member to take note of the people in their “circles of relationships.” We all know family members, coworkers, neighbors, and friends and acquaintances who are far from God. We believe God has providentially placed these people within our “circles of relationships” so that we can reach them with the gospel.
To help you think through the people in your circles who are far from God, download and print off this “Circles of Relationships” sheet, and fill it out with the names of the people you’ll try to reach:
After you’ve filled out your circles, then begin to take the following three steps:
- Pray—begin to pray for those you’ve listed on your circles
- Connect—look for opportunities to speak with them, serve them, and build a relationship with them
- Share—share the gospel with them as God gives you the opportunity
If you don’t know how to share the gospel with an unbeliever, talk to one of our pastors and they will help you.
Here’s a video that we think captures the concept of disciple making we’ve been describing on this page:
