Sharing the Gospel in a fun and creative way

What does God care about?

In the Purpose Driven Life Rick Warren poses the question: What does God care about most? He goes on to answer it by saying that God cares about you and I the most. That is the reason he sent his son. His desire is that we will develop an intimate relationship with Him and he has gone to extreme measures to reach out to us.

Rick Warren also says that as we learn to love God we’ll become less interested in ourselves and more interested in God.

When you start to experience God’s working in your life you’ll become excited about the things of God. You’ll start to see things you never saw before. You’ll see God working in people’s lives and you’ll see ways that God will start using you.

It’s an exciting trip and it starts the day you say to God I want to follow you. Jesus said; You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe a for harvest.

Memory Cross creates fun tools that can be used to share God’s love with others. For more information go to

Ways for your church to reach out

Church outreach. There are a million things that we could do. Jesus commanded us to go and make deciples but how do you do that? How do you reach todays tech savy but not church savy youth?

Go where they hang out. That is increasingly online in social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace. Facebook is the fastest growing so I’ll use it as an example.

The first thing to do is set up an account. It’s painless and quick. Once you have your account set up start adding people to your friends list. Start by telling the youth you work with that you have an account and ask them to add you as their friend. Once you have friends you can go to their friends and add people you know.

Now that you have a few people you can start posting and reading posts. Post every day or two. That way people who don’t personally know you will come to know you by the posts you make. I recommend making personal posts and posts that are relevant to your kids. This could be a daily Scripture or something else that you want to pass along.

Spend time reading posts also. Kids put up personal information and you’ll be able to learn more about their life through Facebook. As you get to know them better you’ll be able to reach them.

If you’re the youth worker or have a small group you might want to consider adding your group to Facebook.

Facebook can be a great way to minister to your youth. If you have other ways that you are using Facebook let me know. I’m sure there are a lot of great ideas that I have not even thought of.

In what creative ways is your church reaching out to your community?

Reaching our communityWe’d like to create a place where churches can share ideas on how to reach out to their communities. Most churches are not growing, yet we have the best message on the planet. American corporations spend billions advertising their products while most churches remain silent. God is calling us to reach out to our neighbors. Let’s share ideas about what is working. Together we can learn from each other and touch millions of people with the Gospel message.

Some resources that are available are: Come Back Churches, Memory Cross,
