Go and Tell (Overview)

Go and Tell (Overview):
The Lord has blessed us with many salvations at Community CRC (Fort Wayne, IN) in the past several years. We have put together an evangelism training tool that we have used to equip our church to share the gospel with others. Go and Tell is an easy and practical way to equip you to become a fisher of men (Matthew 4:19) based on the Heidelberg Catechism. Philemon 6 says, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ Jesus.” Our prayer is that you will use this tool to equip you to become a fisher of men and fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

For example, Karen thanked us after she took the Go and Tell seminar online, she wrote:

“Dear Pastor Jim, I want to thank you for sharing your website with me. I have listened to all sessions and have taken helpful notes! I have also fully investigated your website. You are certainly right when you told me you have the gift of evangelism. You have put together one of the most comprehensive, loving effective ways of evangelizing I have ever listened to. So many of the sources you have quoted from are wonderful but the way you brought them all together is a gift from God! My Bible study I attend has around 200 women and I cannot wait to take it to my leadership. Lastly, thank you for emphasizing not pushing a person into praying a prayer. I did the study of Follow Me this summer and I know that this can lead to false conversion. The F.I.R.E and L.A.W., the bridge and the Christian Wheel were very helpful. I am thankful for how you taught us to let the person pray their own prayer of repentance! I love letting the Holy Spirit do His work rather than me trying to mess up His work. Thank you and God Bless you. I look forward to putting into practice what I learned!”

  1. Several weeks ago Pastor Jim gave his Go and Tell presentation at Northern Heights C.R.C in Kalamazoo Michigan. What a great program for those who feel they need just a little push or a slight confidence booster to “Go and Tell” their friends and neighbors the good news of Jesus Christ, and what better time to do so. A recent article in the Grnad Rapids press dated Aug. 7 stated the fact that the C.R.C membership is at it’s lowest point in over fifty years. In this same section was the report by the Pew Research Center that one-fifth of the U.S. public and one third of adults 30 and younger, are religiously unaffiliated. As Scripture tells us and Pastor said in his presentation, “the harvest is great, the harvesters few. ” As the interim Pastor at Northern Heights I higly recommand this program for the church that wants to be a witness for Christ and have the confidence to do so.

  2. I attended the Go and Tell workshop this past Saturday with two other leaders from our church. We left completely switched on, encouraged and wanting to share the Gospel with the simple tools Jim taught us. The most important thing I think I could say about this experience is that I personally left with less fear than when I came. The next day one of our team led someone to Jesus in the same geography he has been doing street ministry for the last 8 years! We can’t wait to weave this teaching through the fabric of ministry with on our church!
