"Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the ends of the age."
Matt 28:19-20

Evangelism and Discipleship

Engage your audience through creative evangelism. You can get personally involved in reaching out through children’s vacation bible school activities using puppets, felt boards, crafts and games. Kids love clowns and puppet ministry, and they can be integrated into your activities as well. If your church does not have a current puppet or clown ministry, you can get lots of ideas from on line websites such as www.youthpastor.com.

Make sure to make praise and worship a part of all your activities, as our children have lots of energy and love to sing . It is best if you choose songs that can be sung in both English and Spanish and deliver a gospel message. Young and old alike will thoroughly enjoy this dynamic. If you are having trouble finding things at your local church or book store, check out Christian Book Distributors at www.christianbook.com resources in Spanish.

You can get athletic with sports evangelism. The Dominican Republic is known for its great baseball players, so come down ready to roll the bases with a prayer and a bible lesson for our boys. Basketball and soccer are also a hit. You can purchase John 3:16 sports balls for any sport through www.j316ministries.com to make your evangelism fun and exciting. Many times your local clubs may want to donate used tennis or golf balls for your mission. Used sports equipment can be picked up at thrift stores, donated by schools or collected by churches.

Building personal relationships can be very effective through one on one evangelism or going door to door with your team. Passing out bible tracts is a great way to share the message. These can be ordered online through various websites, or you can purchase them in country. Make sure you order them in the appropriate language of your target audience. Please be careful to make sure the message is culturally relevant and includes the message of salvation. Chick publishing is good resource wharehouse to check into www.chick.com as they have a variety of materials in Spanish.
