NewSpring Evangelism Course Participant Guide

At NewSpring Church, “found people find people.”

Pastor Perry Noble and his team have prepared a tremendous resource on Evangelism for use in their groups – and now they have made available to everyone! Here is a brief outline of each session. NewSpring has graciously given permission for you to download the Participant’s Guide; see the link below. The link to download the video segments is also listed.

SESSION 1: WHY?

In this session Perry talks about “why” we all have a call to evangelize and why it is important that we talk about Jesus. Evangelism is important because every person we come in contact with is either in a relationship with Jesus or is spiritually dead.

SESSION 2: WHAT?

In this session Perry will teach about “what” evangelism is. This lesson will help you see more specifics about sharing the Gospel and also a few things you will want to avoid.

SESSION 3: WHERE?

In this session Perry will teach on “where” we are called to go as believers. While it is easy to focus on ourselves and what makes us comfortable, the Bible tells us that Jesus came to save the world not just you and me.

SESSION 4: WHO?

In this session Perry talks about “who” you are called to share the gospel with. The call to evangelism is not just the responsibility of the church, or your pastor, but it is YOUR responsibility as well.

SESSION 5: SHARE YOUR STORY

Following this video, everyone in your group will have a chance to share their story in three minutes or less.

Jesus DID say, "without Me you can do nothing!" (John 15:5). No surprise that He rewards "thick and thin" prayer with great fruitfulness! :)

Is It Ok for a Church Leader to be Excited About Their Church?

One of the things that a few church leaders have questioned me about recently is my repetitiveness in regards to saying “the best is yet to come,” or that the next Sunday or event is going to be “the best ever!”

Honestly, I’m glad people have talked with me about it because it has allowed me to reflect on why I am always saying those things.  There are several reasons…

#1 – Enthusiasm and the belief that things were going to get better is one of THE MAJOR things that pulled me out of my depression!  From 2008 – 2011 I was in the darkest period of my life and yet nearly every single day I woke up thinking and believing that “this is the day that I could get better, this is the day that I could break out of this!”  If I had began to believe that I needed to just accept the way things were then it is highly likely that I would not be here today!!!  Optimism is a powerful weapon against depression!

#2 – Some have asked me if what I am doing is “hype?”  My response is that it is only hype if you don’t believe it!!!  At the end of the day I am smoking what I’m selling.  I really do believe that the best series is going to be “the best ever!”  I really do believe that the next conference is going to be “the best ever.”  And, what I’ve noticed is that belief has impacted my staff in a positive way.  Staff members would much rather follow leadership who has way more dreams for the future than memories of the past.

#3 – I believe that if I do not believe in greater things then I will not put forth a greater effort.  I believe one of the reasons that churches grow cold, apathetic and hit a wall is because leaders all too often choose to be lazy and fall in love with personal comfort instead of progress…because progress always has a price.  Followers of JESUS should NEVER just accept status quo!!!  (The leader who always says “that’s just the way things are” is basically saying, “I’m too lazy or fearful to actually solve that problem!”)

If you are a church leader don’t you EVER apologize for being excited about your church.  Don’t ever apologize because you have big dreams of seeing people rescued from darkness and brought into light.  Don’t you EVER apologize for having a vision so huge that you know you can only get there if God gets involved.  Don’t you EVER allow those who have no enthusiasm make you feel bad for your excitement and belief that greater things are coming.

Contrary to beliefs on the internet it is NOT A SIN for a church leader to be excited, hopeful and positive about their church and/or ministry.  (In fact, I would actually argue that it’s a sin for a leader to NOT be excited about it!)

Church leaders, my prayer for all of us is that 2013 would be THE BEST YEAR EVER for THE CHURCH!  I honestly believe that the church has more potential for a worldwide revival than it EVER HAS.  AND…Jesus (who is always true to His Word) said in Matthew 16:18 that HE will build HIS church!!!  That is a promise!!!

SO…let’s dream big, let’s be excited about it…and let’s believe that God has way more in store!!!

WOO-HOO…I’m pumped about THIS SUNDAY at NewSpring Church, it’s going to be THE BEST EVER!!!

8 Questions that Leaders Should be Asking Themselves

Perry Noble, the founding and senior pastor of NewSpring Church in South Carolina, offers eight questions that leaders should be asking themselves on a regular basis:

#1 – Is there ANYTHING that God is really dealing with me about right now that I am trying to deny?  (Denial doesn’t make us a great leader…if God’s pressing in on YOU then He wants YOU to do something.)

#2 – Am I known as the person who sits around and complains about a problem or the one who rolls up his sleeves and dives into how to deal with it?

#3 – Would I rather hear about the church down the road having a major win or a major problem?  (This reveals our heart!)

10 Signs of a Healthy Team

Want a great list of things to discuss in your next team meeting?  Take a look at these…

#1 – You actually enjoy being around one another instead of trying to find ways to avoid one another.

#2 – Truth is spoken IN LOVE and not in a condescending or condemning way.

#3 – There is an atmosphere of freedom where differences of opinion can be shared without the immediate perception that the person who is disagreeing is somehow disloyal.

(BTW…if you are in a meeting and you disagree mentally then you have an obligation to disagree verbally!  If you do not feel that freedom then there IS a problem!)

#4 – People are willing to walk into the room and ask for help rather than put off the perception that they have it all together.
