The Engel Scale
THE ENGEL SCALE
The original model was developed by James F. Engel and Viggo Søgaard. It was later
refined by Engel, who added several ideas from behavioural science, and published it in
his 1975 book with W.F. Norton What's Gone Wrong With the Harvest and 1979
publication Contemporary Christian Communications.

THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF HELPING PEOPLE INTO A
RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS (up the Engle scale)
Key attributes
Communication of the gospel message - the 5yr old rule!
Compassion - BE KIND
Community - we all need it (people of peace different methodology)
Character with consistency - keep growing
Communion with God - builds all the above
Key attitudes
Friendships not projects - KEEP BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
Good deeds builds good will, which opens doors for the good news - BE
KIND TO PEOPLE
Key Question to ask yourself
What groups of people do you spend time with (school gate, work, where
you live, church, community groups, fitness classes etc.)
Where are these people on their spiritual journey? (on the Engel Scale)
What small steps can you take to see some people grow in their spiritual
journey (those in the minus numbers of the Engel Scale)
