Invite aka Evangelism
"Evangelism is sharing the faith that is in you and listening and learning from the faith that's in somebody else. It's not just about you talking - it's about you listening and sharing; it's about a relationship where God can get in the midst." | Michael B. Curry
"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
"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 TEACHING video remains relevant and we encourage you to use it to unpack INVITE.
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.
