    I'm firm In my belief that churches today need an inreach before they ever get concerned with outreach.

    The church I'm part of now has such a "heart for the lost" but there's one problem. They have no answer for the hope they have. Or they have misplaced hope. Or confused hope.

    You pump up a bunch of spiritually inept people to go "evangelize" and you may have a bigger problem than lost people not veing reached. You just might get lost people running things

    Good answer.

    I look back on my own life and realize that when I took a class on evangelism as a new believer...I could barely articulate the Gospel. it was through that class that I grew in leaps and bounds. It was through sharing my faith that I learned what the Gospel is.

    I would never preach evangelism just for the sake of evangelism--we need to know what the message is before we can share it with others.

    Think going thru both of them, mayb eRomans in sunday school and John in main sermon, would be great!

    Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. First sermon was 1 Cor 2:1-5. This next weekend I'm going to launch into a sermon series on Acts.
