Invite, a.k.a. Evangelism
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
Invitation is not only about inviting people into a relationship with you and others in your congregation, but rather it is about inviting them into a relationship with God through Jesus.
People need a language with which to talk about their faith. We need to help them “spell Episcopalian with the alphabet of their own soul.” –Roy Oswald, Speed B. Leas. The Inviting Church (Alban Institute, 1987)
This list is a starting place for you to assess and create your congregation’s system for inviting. It is not intended to be either all inclusive or size specific.
