Establish Christ-like Involvement With Your Community
Share the Gospel. Serve the Local Church. Minister to the Least of These.
As Christians, God has called us to be active in sharing our faith with others. We are His hands and feet; we have a special responsibility to praise Him and grow His Kingdom here on earth. By simply proclaiming the good news of His salvation, we are giving Glory to God.
And, as Christians, we cannot become complacent or content in our relationships with Christ. Self-satisfaction is dangerous because we can always grow closer to Him in our thoughts, our actions, and the way we minister to others. Once we begin to rely on our past victories rather than Christ, we are no longer seeking God.
Outreach North America can help you avoid falling into the trap of complacency by providing resources that can help you grow in sharing the Gospel, serving your local church and/or ministering to those who need it most.
Our hope and prayer for each of our churches is, as Paul said to Philemon, “that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of everything that we have in Christ.” To that end, we offer evangelism resources for individuals and small groups. We also train congregations in specific evangelism strategies and programs, including:
E3 is ONA’s very own evangelism strategy that your church can easily implement. With this strategy, new and mature believers alike can embrace Christ, be equipped in their walk with Christ, and be given opportunities to engage their faith.
Unlike our E3 strategy, Gospel Conversations is designed as a curriculum for training groups. Our seminar can help you reach your community for Christ by introducing your leaders to the latest research in evangelism and church participation in the US and Canada.
Evangelism Explosion is a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. It utilizes a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication.Learn More
Christianity Explored is a relaxed and informal way of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. It gives people time and space to think about the big questions of life. Over seven sessions in Mark’s Gospel, guests find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.Learn More
We recognize the Lord’s repeated call in Scripture to have compassion for the foreigner and the vulnerable. With that Scriptural mandate, as well as the Synod’s support, ONA has resources to help our churches address ministry opportunities presented to us by refugees and immigrants located in the USA and Canada.
Whether through partnering with a resettlement agency as a church group, offering English as a Second Language classes, or simply befriending newcomers to your neighborhood, God can use you and your church to reach the nations that He has brought to our doorstep!
