Again, these are just 10 ideas that worked for me during the course of the years that I pastored. I trust as you look ahead to a brand new year, they will be of some help to you and your church.
Thanks so much for your desire to reach others with the Gospel. What a blessing to labor alongside of you for the Gospel’s sake.
Plan a missions trip. I believe one of the greatest things any church could ever do to keep world evangelism in the forefront of their ministries, is to send their pastor on a missions trip at least once a year.
Letters are wonderful, phone calls and pictures are great, but there is nothing that can stir a pastor’s heart like being on the field himself. When a pastor’s heart is burdened for world evangelism, that burden will eventually be conveyed on to the rest of the church. Also, provide an opportunity for your church members to go on a missions trip as well. It is a big undertaking, but Macedonia can and will help you plan the trip. I assure you, a well-planned missions trip will be a life-changing event for anyone in your church that goes.
