Reaching more people
By Shannon Caughey
“To reach people that no one is reaching, you have to do things that no one else is doing.” (Craig Groeschel)
From our research, it appears that the Scott Park area is largely not being reached by churches and ministries. I’m sure there are many reasons for this. Yet the fact remains: God loves these people and desires that they hear and see the gospel of Jesus Christ. Are we willing to do some things that no one else is currently doing in an effort to reach these people?
This also means we would need to do some things that we aren’t currently doing. TCBC is a healthy church in many ways, but let’s be honest: one of our weaknesses is evangelism. We believe God wants to change this. It probably won’t happen by merely tweaking a few things. It will likely require some significant steps—doing some things we aren’t currently doing.
Paul said, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings” (1 Cor. 9:22-23). To reach people that no one else was reaching, he was willing to do things that no one else was doing.
What steps might God be calling us as TCBC to take in order to reach more people?
