Evangelism That Does Not Horse Around!

Posted: October 6, 2015 in Personal Evangelism

Does evangelism still work? Does confrontational evangelism still work? I recently spoke to a dear friend, Rev. David Cobb with David Cobb Evangelistic Association. David and I have led many mission teams into the inner cities across the American landscape. We worked with inner churches, and alongside believers sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in communities labeled as under reachable and hard to reach with the gospel.

David had spent ten days in Hutchinson, Kansas September 11-20, 2015. David shared that 154 people gave their hearts to Jesus at the Kansas State Fair. Loren Phippen, who serves on staff at Believer’s Southern Baptist Church, Wichita, KS. heads up the John 3:16 Horse Shoe Ministry. David emphasized that the John 3:16 ministry is a major emphasis of the church outreach strategy for evangelism. Loren Phippen shared with me, through the ministry they have given out over 45,000 horse shoes since he started and have had over 1,000 salvation’s!

The Horse Shoe ministry gave out over 2,700 horse shoes at the Kansas State Fair this year. People were asked if they wanted a free horse shoe with their name stamped on one side and John 3:16 on the other side. All takers where then told they would have to listen to a short presentation on John 3:16. As they waited, a Gospel Presenter shared the gospel using his testimony how John 3:16 had impacted his life.

Some Gospel Presenters shared using the EvangeCube and their life change story how John 3:16 had changed their lives. The witnesses would then share how they prayed asking Jesus into their heart and life. The opportunity was then offered to anyone who was willing to pray asking Jesus Christ to forgive their sins and give them a new start in life. Those who asked Jesus to forgive them of their sins and invited Jesus into their hearts and life was asked to raise their hands. Then they were asked if they felt comfortable filling out a form so a church could contact them for follow up and disciple making opportunities.

What great and refreshing news of God changing lives! It is inspiring to me to know that there are churches who have taken Jesus at His Word and to go make disciples of all nations.
