12 Simple & Effective Women's Ministry Outreach Events
In any ministry it is easy to only be focused on gathering believers and without meeting new people and reaching out to the lost really the Great Commission wont happen. So here are 12 ideas of how you can use events to share the Gospel
Global Media Outreach
GMO's mission is to help fulfill the Great Commission through the technology used by online missionaries and giving everyone on earth multiple opportunities to hear about Jesus. They invite believers to go through a online training program to become certified to answer emails from those seeking for Christ around the world.
I did this for a season and it was a neat blessing. Here's a video testimony of how God is using it.
This week's highlight is not necessarily a ministry resource but a tool that can be used for ministry. So you've heard of craigslist I'm sure. Well, Fiverr.com is like craigslist but for services. And the best part, everything is $5. There is all sorts of things you can have done for $5. I have used it a lot for things like a book promo video, ebook covers, logo design, poster design etc. but there is a ton more you can do. And it's neat because you partner with people in other countries to get a job done. Have fun exploring.
Well, of course I need to tell you about the Christian Living Ultimate Bundle with all it's awesome books that is a special one time only sale that ends on Monday. I sent out an email about it on Monday, so I don't really need to go through all the details again. So just some highlights:
* 84 books, you're own personal mini-library of classics, family & parenting, devotionals, finances and a ton more for only $35.
* Authors like Tozer, Jonathan Edwards, Andrew Murray, Spurgeon, DL Moody, John Wesley, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Ray Comfort and a ton more!
*And one of my books is included! Yay! And by buying one you will be supporting a soon to be released new ministry tool. If you didn't read the Monday email you can read more about thishere.
On the theme of making disciples of all nations, Joshua Project has a free app that gives you an unreached people group and specific things to pray for. And you even get to click a little button after praying and see how many other people prayed that day. Here's the app.
If you go on missions trips or know someone who does. Or if you are a missionary or know someone who is, this is one of the best resources out there for raising support. It is packed full of faith and wisdom, helping people navigate how and why to raise support. Support Raising Solutions offers a training bootcamp, a blog and books. If you personally don't need a resource like this, pass it on to someone who raises their personal income. It will be a huge blessing to them.
The Story, an online Gospel presentation.
ViewtheStory.com has a great Gospel presentation tool you can use anywhere. You set up an account so they can track where (from all over the world) it is read. Then you can embed or paste the link anywhere from a website or blog to facebook or twitter. Anywhere online really.
And how awesome it would be to use The Story as an ad to reach unreached people with the Gospel!
Here's a video I made showing you step by step how to use it.
Chick Publication Gospel Tracts for Kids
My husband just ordered a bunch of these for our kiddos to give away to other kids they see on Halloween. He got the idea after he took our two oldest (6 &7) to Elitches (Denver's amusement park) and they would hear someone take the Lord's name in vain and then would run after them to give them a tract. They enjoyed it so much they were almost giddy. What a great idea for them to learn to be outward focused on Halloween instead of "gimme gimme gimme".
Who is this Jesus? mini magazine.
Have you ever met/known someone who wants to get to know more about Christianity and you're not quite sure what to give them. A Beth Moore study isn't quite the right thing but you weren't sure what else was out there. Well this little magazine is awesome! it is a Bible study all about Jesus; His life, His character and His teaching and His death and resurrection. It also has a super clear Gospel presentation.
This week I finally got the Discipleship Mosaic done. Yay! I am so excited about it as I think it is such a great resource to help people talk through foundational issues of faith that so often can be overlooked. All the materials you can download for free. Check it out here.
