PCC Tonight: Leading Your Churches in Evangelism

Good news. Every day in England people of all ages become disciples of Jesus. This happens mainly through ordinary Christians showing and sharing their faith in everyday life, and through local churches that welcome and reach out to those within their communities. 

Yet, the ministry of evangelism can all too easily take a back seat in the busyness of church life and the many responsibilities that PCCs carry. These six sessions focus on how to develop evangelism as part of your normal way of being church, and enable PCCs to explore their role in leading churches and congregations in evangelism.
 
The six sessions are based on the format of the original PCC resource, PCC Tonight, which helps PCCs to review their purpose and working practices. If you haven’t yet done these you may like to start there. 
 
The sessions cover:  
  1. Is it really necessary: why think about evangelism?
  2. Stereotypes and stumbling blocks: what is evangelism?
  3. Surely that's the minister’s job: who needs to be involved?
  4. How to order and mobilise a community around evangelism: shaping.
  5. How to order and mobilise a community around evangelism: focusing.
  6. How to order and mobilise a community around evangelism: enabling.
 
Each session is around 35-40 minutes long and can be used in a number of different ways.  
  • You can use a session at the start of a PCC meeting as the first item on the agenda, doing one each time you meet over several meetings, or perhaps every other meeting.  
  • You can easily expand a session to make it a longer item, up to 60 minutes.  
  • You can link several sessions together and use them on a PCC away morning or day.  
 
All the resources you need to run the sessions are included in the downloadable materials:
  • Leaders’ guide
  • Handouts
  • Activities
  • PowerPoint
  • Video
