101 Ways to Reach Your Community Reviews
I love the creativity and passion to reach souls for Christ.This book is a little dated (floppy disk giveaway...hehehe) but is timeless when it comes to challenging you to think creatively about evangelism.
An idea book for community outreach. Sjogren calls this 'servant evangelism' and he shares a number of ideas ranging from feeding parking meters to block parties. Published in 2000 there are several ideas that are dated (floppy disks and phone cards). There are also some editorial lapses in the formatting. Mostly Sjogren points to how to parlay acts of service into evangelism or inviting people to your church. This is a good book for pulling small groups out of their comfort zone for projects, but this is not a book about transforming communities in any substantive way. These are short two-hour-projects rather than tackling issues for the long haul. Got to start somewhere and if you are looking for creative ideas around engaging community, this is a starting point. One book I think does this better is Chris Smith's ebook, Growing Deeper in our Church Communities: 50 ideas for Connection in a Disconnected Age.
we use this little volume with our small groups to give them ideas and instruction on how to love their community as a small group. We try to make our groups about more than just Bible study, but evangelism as well
I use this as a reference guide often, both in my ministry and as I write about sharing our faith with others others, especially in small groups. There are some great ideas here for small groups to utilize.
Overall, some great ideas for a church to reach out to their neighborhood. Some will not work in Tucson as they deal with snow (I am very happy about that!), but overall some great ideas for service projects for my youth group.
LOTS of great ideas to reach out to people. Some might be outdated, but could be used just the same in a different format. Still, a great resource for reaching people in practical ways.
So many ideas -- servant evangelism -- great!
if you want to reach out to your community in a practical way, this is the book to read and follow it's suggestions..you CANNOT go wrong..many great ways to show the love of Jesus in practical ways.
Sjogren has put together a wonderful collection of ideas for serving your community. The book also focuses on serving with no agenda and no strings attached.
Excellent book for ideas on how to approach your community as an out reach for Christ or your Church. My church in FL used many of these very succesfully. Highly recommend this book.
