As churches go, Lord, ours is doing pretty well in evangelism.
A vigorous Evangelism Explosion program Thursday nights.
Decent visitor recognition and follow-up procedures.
Some really fruitful investigative Bible studies going on in several people's homes.
An emphasis this quarter in adult Sunday school on web-relationship evangelism.
People responding well by bringing friends and neighbors to films and church programs geared to evangelism.
"Friendship Sundays" twice a year, when visitors are presented with a low-key, no-threat explanation of the gospel.
