Tips of Evangelism – Preaching to Different Ethnic Groups

Author – Pond Chan In the early days of my conversion in Vancouver, I participated in streetside evangelism training at the Short-Term Mission Center. I wanted to preach the gospel to people of different ethnic backgrounds.  I thought that most Westerners believed in Jesus. However, many Westerners responded: “I’m an atheist and don’t believe in Jesus.” “I used to believe in Jesus and converted to Buddhism,” “don’t talk about Jesus with me…etc.” Since I saw so many westerners who didn’t know the Lord Jesus, it inspired me to preach the gospel to them bravely.  Therefore, I raised the opportunities to meet people of different ethnic groups, including westerners,

Tips of Evangelism – Ways for the Old and the Wicked

Author: Pond Chan One of our evangelistic fears is facing the elderly (because they feel dignified, are relatively stubborn & experienced in life). In addition are facing the wicked (because they feel vicious, dominating & powerful), afraid of being scolded or driven away, so they dare not speak. When we remember: we must pray that the Lord will send us and give us power and authority. (Ref. Romans 10:15 / Matthew 28:18-20) Ask the Holy Spirit to give you boldness, eloquence, wisdom, and guidance to those of gospel target yours. (Ref. Ephesians 6:19/Acts 10:44) When preaching the gospel, knowing that the Lord will walk with us and relying

【Shoes of the Gospel】Is it Hard to Lead Someone to Christ?

Author: Trustworthy Message  2022-08 I would like to share a testimony with you all: February 16, 2022, on the morning of my surgery to remove my breast cancer tumor, I set my alarm clock to arrive at the hospital early in the morning, but I woke up an hour earlier than scheduled. So I asked the Heavenly Father, “What will I do with this extra hour?” The Holy Spirit spoke a name in my heart. So I called her immediately, and she was chatting with a classmate on Zoom. I suddenly thought that her classmate might be a non-believer! Does God want me to preach the gospel to

【Tips of Evangelism】「Ways To Preach As You Go」

“The twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions…As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’” (Matt. 10:5-7) The Bible teaches us that when we “proclaim as we go” and “preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season,” we will meet different people and reactions.  How could we be courageous and skillful in handling them?

Tips of Evangelism – Leading Children to Jesus “ASAP.”

Pond Chan 2022-07 Some Christian parents are unaware of the cruciality of their children’s belief in Jesus. And even consider that they will make their own decisions when they grow up. Without God’s guidance, would lead children under foul and fail by the world’s unhealthy trends; as a result, they may become atheists, pantheists, and even heretical cults! Since I first believed in the Lord, I heard Dr. Esther Su remind Christians that when children are 3 to 4 years old, we should lead them to Jesus, and the Holy Spirit will help and guide them.  Then I took action to teach my grandsons, aged 3 and 4, to

【Gen Z】Evangelism and Gen Z — Pt.1: Three Essential Affirmations

By: Samuel Aragones 2022-06 In my youth programs, I always try to institute some form of Q&A Night, where students and parents get to send in anonymous questions regarding life, faith, and the Bible. And one of the most frequently asked questions I get from pastors, parents, and students is: “How on earth do I share the gospel?” This is a broad topic and one many have dealt with far better than I could. Still, my hope in writing and addressing this topic of evangelism (or “sharing the gospel”) with Generation Z is that I wish to offer my particular perspective as a Millennial pastor who serves in
