I Want To Evangelise But
Where Do I Start?
 Step/Key 1 – Communication Structure
 Step/Key 2 – Message Structure
 Step/Key 3 – How to Get a Response
1. Communication Structure
 1. Attention – Getting a person’s attention requires
courage and creativity.
 Start with hello and a smile
 Normal everyday questions or conversation e.g.
special offers in the supermarket, a current news
event.
 Be sure to listen so you can establish trust and
connection
 Ask about their views on God and be prepared to
listen. Don’t be worried about negativity at the
beginning.
Communication Structure
 2. Build Interest – Take an interest in people and
you will get their interest.
 Don’t talk non-stop. Listen to their story and ask
God to give you appropriate information or
solutions.
 3. Create a Desire – Are you convinced that
without Jesus, the person lacks the most important
thing in life. Communicate this to them.
 Share your testimony
 Ask them questions to ascertain if they understand
why Jesus is so important to you.
2. Sharing the Message
– 1. God’s Plan - God Loves You and created
you to live in fellowship with Him. God’s
plan for your life is the best plan possible
John 3:16
– 2. The Problem - Man separated himself
from the Creator and decided to go his own
way, hence all the trouble in the world.
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Isaiah 59:2
– # Before the person you are talking to wants
to get saved, they must understand that they
are lost.
– 3. God’s Love - Jesus Christ Is God’s ONLY
Provision For Man’s Sin, we cannot bridge
the gap between God and us by our own
efforts. John 14:6, Romans 5:8
– We Must Individually Receive Jesus As
Savior And Lord. He died to take the
punishment for our sin. - John 1:12, Romans
10:9, Ephesians 2:8
– 4. The Most Important Decision – Jesus rose
from the dead and is waiting for your
response.
– Invite them to make a decision
3. Invite them to Make a Decision
 Challenge the person to make a decision,
don’t be hesitant.
 Do you want to get right with God now?
 Do you believe Jesus died on the cross for
your sin?
 Do you believe Jesus rose from the dead?
 Do you wish to receive Jesus into your heart
now?
 If yes, invite them to pray the sinners prayer
after you.
Sinner’s Prayer
Father God, I know that I am a sinner
deserving death. But Jesus paid the penalty of
death for me. I believe that on the third day he
rose with all power in heaven and on earth
and is seated at the right hand of the father.
Please forgive me of my sins, and send your
Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and Your
will for my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
What Next?
 Exchange contact details and contact them
with 72 hours to see how they are doing.
Arrange to bring them to church, come with
them and sit with them.
 Encourage them to begin the
Believers/Baptismal Class
Empowerment from God for Evangelism
(Pentecost Sunday)
 : Act 2:1-4 “And when the day of Pentecost was
fully come, they were all with one accord in one
place. And suddenly there came a sound from
heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled
all the house where they were sitting. And there
appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,
and it sat upon each of them. And they were all
filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak
with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
utterance.”
PRAYER in ONE ACCORD.
To see fruit from this week’s efforts, it is
imperative we appreciate the importance of
unity and agreement. Before the day of
Pentecost, the disciples were in the upper
room afraid for their lives. They were not
discussing politics or positions, but rather they
were praying. Their lives, survival and future
depended on the outcome of the only weapon
available, which was PRAYER in ONE
ACCORD.
 They were in ONE ACCORD; in mind,
purpose, goal and vision.
 It is crucial to understand that unity is
important to move the vision of Chapel of
Grace and RCCG (UK) to the next level. Ps.
133:1-3, Ecc. 4:9-12
 Key point: if we are united, God will
command blessings upon us.
It Is Time!
 God has a timetable for all things. E.g. Ex.
3:1-10, the time of deliverance for Israel
came.
 The time of Europe and the United
Kingdom (UK) in particular has come.
 Key point: if we pray, the revival of Europe
and the UK can come forth.
SUDDENLY, A SOUND FROM HEAVEN!
 Things happen suddenly as a result of prayer.
When God wants to move, He can do His work in
minutes. In John 2:1-11, because Mary asked, the
‘Not Yet’ became ‘Now’. We must appreciate that
if we only pray and ask; ‘Not Yet’ of revival
visitation upon UK can become ‘Now’.
 There was a SOUND from heaven.
 Heaven is not silent concerning ONE ACCORD
prayers. When we pray in unity across all our
churches; God will speak. Jer. 33:3.
 We must appreciate that God speaks, when we
pray, Ps. 107:17-20.
Rushing Mighty Wind!
 If we constantly pray, the wind of God will blow.
Whatever we can do in our own power doesn’t
need prayers.
 When the wind of God blows:
 The Red Sea parts Ex. 14:21-28.
 There will be a way where there was no way
before. A quick and faster spread of the Word,
enlargement, increase on every side and a quick
and faster a spread to cover the whole of England;
a rapid growth of the church. Is. 54:1-3, Is. 27:6.
Cloven tongues as of FIRE
 When we pray in one accord, FIRE can fall.
Many things happen when fire comes down.
Ex. 3:1-15, 1Kings 18:36-39.
 Let’s pray now for the fire
