Church Yard Evangelism

Church-yard evangelism is one of the most powerful growth vehicles for any church, if done right.  The problem is, most could be a great deal more effective than they are; think about any of these activities you have been involved in over the years at any church you have visited.  Here is a list of activities / events commonly sponsored, or supported by churches, either near, or on their church property:

  • Yard sales
  • BBQ
  • Car Shows
  • Events for Children (games, rides, etc…)
  • Fall Festival
  • Egg Hunt
  • Fish Fry

There are many more different kinds of activities that could be listed.  These events usually reflect the social fabric and interest of the sponsoring, or participating church.  Many times these are planned fund raisers.  However, the goals also typically evolve around introducing new people to the church through some form of interaction, with the hope of leading others into a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Additional benefits include helping introduce existing Christians, new to the area, to your church; help them find a new church home.  Other benefits include fellowship among participating church members , and exposure for the church in other indirect ways.  Most would agree, if others accept Christ (souls saved) as their personal savior “at the event”, then this would be like having your cake, and eating it too…   … a win-win-win.  Praise the Lord!  Any kind of church-yard evangelism can always be about seeing souls saved.  In fact, why plan one if that’s not included? People need the Lord!

SOS Events is about showing others how they can come to expect a harvest of souls at almost any event.  Tom Curtis often reminds others that it’s not him, his wife Carolyn and other SOS workers that save souls, but it’s faith in action based on their surrender to a relationship that allows Him to do His will.  Write to info@sosevents.org, if you would like more information, or help with your event.

Psalm 72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
