This lesson speaks to the very heart of local church ministry. Jesus Himself came “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). But in so many of our churches today, I see pastors fervently reading books and attending conferences, but never really settling in for intentional soulwinning—building the church the way God designed.
If you want to reignite the soulwinning fervor in your church and in your own heart, this lesson is for you. You may not need to read another book or find another conference. You may need to simply take some time with the Lord and ask Him to stir your heart once again with a passion for souls.
Before and after this lesson, I answer the following in-studio questions:
- Are you aware of pastors who have recently seen soulwinning reignited in their church?
- Are there factors in fundamentalism that are contributing to a philosophical decline in soulwinning?
- What do you do when you sense the soulwinning fervor declining in a church?
- What is your philosophy for staff members providing soulwinning training?
