Evangelism Where You Live: Engaging Your Community

SKU 9780827208223

By Stephen Pate, Gene Wilkes



From The Columbia Partnership (TCP) Leadership series

Many U.S. corporations and a few churches have discovered the importance of serving the community through civic organizations. For corporations the result has been growth and increased revenue. For the limited number of churches, the members have actually been able to experience being a part of an Acts 2 church, fulfilling the Great Commandment and Commission. This book envisions, motivates, and gives effective handles to the pastor and church leaders to implement a biblically based philosophy of ministry.

A TCP Leadership Series title


“Steve Pate and Gene Wilkes have presented a fresh, authentic means for the church to move outside its walls and touch its community. They have also provided a way for a long-term believer or a person just beginning the journey of exploration into following Christ to ‘get it.’ Servant evangelism motivates the heart and opens the eyes to the incarnation of the Gospel. This book really presents the church being the church as Christ intended.”
—Gary W. Loudermilk, executive director, Denton Baptist Association

“Steve and Gene are men of God with a great view of the Kingdom. Their insight and vision have helped countless local churches turn the corner.”
—Matt Chandler, lead pastor, The Village Church, Highland Village and Denton, Texas

“Wilkes and Pate have provided an exceptional and effective strategy that goes well beyond an event orientation to servant evangelism. For churches who have tried the one day, the one week, or the single missions trip approach to community transformation, Community-Based Servant Evangelism is the way to get the multitude of disciples engaged in life-transforming missional action.”
—George Bullard, author of Every Congregation Needs a Little Conflict
