Calvary Hill Baptist Church: The Great Obstacle Race 2017 – Registration
How do we reach people who do not know Christ? That’s the primary challenge of evangelism. In recent years, an eclectic group of Christian leaders from different traditions have been giving a fresh look at evangelism through the lens of community. In our culture where loneliness and a sense of disconnectedness pervade, perhaps a warm, welcoming community infused with grace and love can be a place for healing and belonging. This is the idea behind church planting as evangelism.
