One of the top ranking questions that minorities ask when considering involvement and giving to the local church is, “What is the church doing for the community?” Community involvement is an expectation that both the church and the world not only anticipates from the church but demands of it. The Bible also addresses the issues of feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the imprisoned, and caring for the widows, among other outreaches. The church is called to be a compassionate presence in the earth that touches lives with the warmth of God. Unfortunately, research suggests that 91% of all Christian outreach/evangelism is not targeted towards non-Christians. Research also suggests that most declining churches do not have enough external outreach ministries.
The Bible states that the early church had favor with all the people (Acts 2:47); in essence, they touched the community. Is your church touching the community and is the community responding in kind by attending your church? It does people no good to have their natural needs met but die void of a relationship with Christ. Well, in this dynamic seminar, “Driving the Community to Your Church,” Dr. Dana Carson, the Kingdom Voice and African-American Church Growth Expert, will empower you to not only reach out to the community, but teach you how to maximize your church growth through outreach.
