The people in your church would love to be passionate about evangelism, whether they realize it yet or not. People need a cause. They like to be stirred and long to be a part of something that is bigger than they are. They don’t want to check a box of church attendance and leave it there. No, they want to know that their life, and their service, really matters. Reminding them of the importance of evangelism by planning a big day gets them excited about cooperating with God to grow the church and makes them want to do their part to help.
There’s nothing like a big day to ignite some passion and mobilize people for service. When you share your vision for reaching a new level through a big day, you will find people more than willing to give extra time and energy to the cause. They will help prepare the way for that big day, and they will be there to take part in it. They will be eager to reach out to their friends, family, and co-workers. You will spur them on to greater spiritual growth by giving them the opportunity to be part of the bigger picture of growing God’s kingdom.
