Invite a friend to church.
What could be so hard about that, right?
But we all know it’s more complicated than that.
I don’t know what word you like to use. Maybe the term evangelism is a little old school, but we all know what it means. So, for this post let’s go with it.
Gary Greeno is the bi-vocational interim pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship in Stockton, CA. And as a coach, Gary also leads one of the top high school programs in Northern California.
Here’s a glimpse of Gary’s story in his own words.
“I absolutely love coaching high school basketball, and also lead a Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s club in addition to teaching math. God has given me a real platform where I’m at in the community. At the same time, I feel very strongly that for this season God has called me to pastor this church.”
That’s so cool and it’s as real as it gets. Gary asked me a great question. “What’s the best way to get a church to be evangelistic?”
I’ll share our exchange with you.
