Making Disciples Missionally

How do we Make Disciples in whatever culture we find ourselves in. Programs don't work and methods are often incomplete. There remains a process, a biblical process. What is it?See More

Coaching for Evangelism

Posted on July 19, 2009 at 5:26pm 4 Comments

Here's a great article by friend and colleague Tom Clegg discussing the intersection of coaching and evangelism (article runs from pages 64-67). I wonder how many more of our friends, neighbors, and co-workers would be following Jesus today if we took Tom's approach of "asking" curious questions rather than sticking with our traditional approach of "telling" people about Jesus?

Greetings in the name of the lord Jesus Christ our Saviour,

We are glad to inform that I am Pastor Prakash Paul my wife Sharmila & my kids Jessica Paul (3yrs), Kevin Samuel (1 ½ yrs) all living in small village serving our mighty God in hilly regions & tribal areas .We are young couple serving our Powerful God in this village named Eluru, in Andhra Pradesh, also By Gods Grace we are worshipping the lord in Yeleswaram in believers house where our church is not built or constructed .

We are doing ministry independently without any denomination by faith, we are also reaching the agency places like hilly region where witchcraft peoples and idol worshippers live. Monthly once all our youths and believers together go for outreach ministry to spread Gospel in every corner of the mountain peoples.

We want prayerful peoples who can pray for our ministry, we are glad to have fellowship with you and work together to build our Almighty Kingdom for his Glory. Please reply as soon as possible thanking you.
