Pastors (and others), what are some of the effective techniques you have to present invitation? Also, have you any experience with things you felt you've done wrongly? Personally, I try to blend the requirement for "a verdict" on the part of the listener with the whole worship time - including music. I tend to have trouble though with the mechanics of calling people to decision - in other words - the "invitation time." I feel that I need to improve in this area. I can sense the Spirit moving in individuals many times, but I feel deficient in leading them as to "what to do now" - like when the people asked the apostles, "brothers, what should we do?" I would note that I think it's entirely scriptural to call people to decision - as Joshua did when he said "as for me and my house..."
