Evangelism & Outreach for Ordinary Members
- Stories That Will Shift Your World – a series of short videos by Ty Gibson designed for today’s postmodern society. Good videos to present to non-believers who are searching for something to believe. Ty Gibson also wrote outstanding books for sharing.
- Simple Church at Home – The Adventist House Church Network focuses on outreach to the unchurched who will not normally come to church. Also a good outreach method for Adventists living far away from organized churches.
- The Seventh Day – great video of the history and significance of the seventh-day Sabbath. There are other videos on the topic, but this one is very professional and engaging.
- Difficult Texts Made Simple. If we are serious about doing personal outreach, we will, sooner or later, run into “difficult texts.” William Earnhardt presents some of the questions you may meet and suggests how to give a simple answer.
- Signs of the Times periodical to share. Some stories from this handy digest-format magazine are online. And you can send a hard-copy subscription to your friends from the online interface.
