Practical Tips for Inviting People to Church
As part of our current teaching series on personal evangelism, Jaron wanted to share an additional resource with us. This article by Alex Tran helps us think through some of the fears we have around inviting people to church. Alex writes:
“Let’s face it. When we invite people to church, the idea of it can be nerve-wracking.
There’s a lot of inner dialogue that happens. How do I bring it up in conversation? What if I come across as judgmental? What if I get rejected? What if I make them uncomfortable?
The tendency is to ask a lot of ‘what if’ questions that focus on the negative side. But what if you reminded yourself of the potential, instead?
What if they say yes?
What if they experience authentic community and love for the first time?
What if the church renews their faith and hope in Christ?
What if they find their identity in Christ and walk in greater confidence?”
