Watch This New Video

  • The first style focuses mostly on gathering people into the church through proclaiming the Word in evangelism.
  • The second style focuses mostly on scattering people out of the church through serving the poor in acts of mercy.

Both styles are needed. But one of the biggest mistakes church leaders make is failing to understand which of these outreach styles is the best “fit” for their church’s unique giftedness and the specific needs of their community.
