A Great Responsibility posted by John Sorensen on May 27, 2021
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
Whose responsibility is it to share the Gospel? Well, most Christians say that it is the pastor’s job to lead people to the Lord. But when Jesus commissioned His disciples before ascending into heaven, He wasn’t only talking to pastors — He was directing all believers to “go and make disciples of all the nations.” This is what Union Three Church in Alabama undeniably believes, and it caused Pastor Joey Hanner to start training his congregation on how to share their faith using Evangelism Explosion. Hanner said, “There’s nothing within fifteen miles of us, but EE helped us be mindful of the urgency.” And now, members from the church gather each Sunday to go out and share the Gospel; and because of this, the church began baptizing more than one hundred new believers each month and focused on intentional discipleship. And the end result is a community changed. Want to learn how to share your faith? Visit us online at share life dot today.
