The Commission on Evangelism as launched a major effort to connect with our 145+ churches in the Eastern Regional Conference to initiate opportunities for ministry. The Commission exists to help local churches carry out the ministry of evangelism and discipling in their local contexts.  Through a variety of resources, including the resource of people trained to coach churches in ministry, the Commission wants to take its ministry of equipping, support, and vision-casting to a whole new level.

Dear Church Leader:

The Commission on Evangelism was privileged to make a major presentation at ERC Conference in April. I hope you were able to hear it. The purpose of this letter is to follow up on that presentation.

Our commitment is to provide your church the opportunity to have a better impact for Christ on your community. We want to work with you to equip your congregation to reach people for Christ.

The Evangelism Commission has several different ways to facilitate your scheduling so that as many people as possible can participate. For instance, we can resource a Sunday evening class for a few consecutive weeks. Or maybe an hourly weekday class of say 6-8 weeks works for you. Perhaps the Sunday School hour would reach more people in your congregation. We can accommodate that also. Our desire is to help you turn up the passion for evangelism in your church.

Are you are looking for ideas to reach people in your community? We can help! We are happy to come and meet with your council or your evangelism leaders just to talk about how your church can raise its community visibility. And all with the goal of building bridges to the Bridge.

To facilitate that goal the Commission offers courses and workshops led by experienced teachers. These can be customized to fit your schedule. Our signature workshop is Bridgebuilders. Other courses we are ready to present include Just Walk across the Room and They Like Jesus But Not The Church. And we continue to run School of Evangelism classes on a timely basis.

We are here for you to assist in any way that works for you to help more people into a saving relationship with Jesus.

Please feel free to contact the Commission at any time. You can email us through our website: ercevangelism.com and you may also phone Pat Bailey at 717-776-7301.

God bless you and your ministry. And I hope we can partner together to build bridges to the Bridge.

The Commission on Evangelism

John Yoder, Chair
