EVANGELISM MATTERS – COMMISSION NEWS

The Commission on Evangelism is at work in a number of setting at this time.  Next Monday we began a series of Evangelism Breakfasts to engage in a dialogue with our local churches about the challenges the way in evangelism in their local context and ways the Commission can assist them.  The first two are on Monday, October 4, 2010 at the Germantown Church of God beginning at 9:00 am and Monday, October 11, 2010 at Gus’ Restaurant in Mount Joy beginning at 8:30 am. The first one focuses on Cumberland County and the South Central and is replacing their ministerium for the month.  Paul Tatum, Ron Dull and Chuck Frank will be representing the Commission. The latter replaces the Lancaster East Ministerium this month.  Chuck Frank, Dave Anderson and Steve Dunn will leading. RSVP through Micah Brickner at the ERC Office.  The breakfast is free. Pastors, bring some evangelism leaders from your local church.

In October Josh Glacken of Global Media Outreach and a representative of the Commission will be meeting with our Shippensburg Church to launch the first ERC “church” community of on-line missionaries.  Commission member and on-line missionary Samuel Ruggiero was featured at GMO’s major launch event last Friday at the Eden Resort in Lancaster. This event was attended by GMO major leadership from Orlando and Houston.

On October 11 we will be conducting mentoring training at Landisville for our next two evangelism mentors Jim Klock and Bob Bell.  They will be joining our other four as available resources to your local churches.  Bob is actually already at work with Tim Landis and the Bainbridge Church.

Steve Dunn is providing evangelism training for the new outreach and evangelism ministry at the Elizabethtown Church of God where Mark Yarger is pastor.  In January the Commission will be providing speakers for an evangelism emphasis at Swatara which is served by Mike Nelson and Jack Selcher.

And we especially remind the Northwest District and Cumberland County Churches of the Bridgebuilders Seminar being offered at the Bare Memorial Church in Roaring Spring. Mark Halliday, one our current School of Evangelism students is host pastor.
