Breaking the Huddle : How Your Community Can Grow Its Witness (Paperback) (Don Everts & Doug Schaupp &
About this item
Most Christians are stuck in the huddle. Even though we believe in outreach, our communities tend to focus on our own needs. That makes us into insular groups that don't have many relationships with outsiders. So evangelism is occasional and conversions are rare. How do we change?In their groundbreaking I Once Was Lost, Don Everts and Doug Schaupp identified five thresholds that individuals move across from skeptics to followers. Now they and Val Gordon show how huddled communities can become witnessing communities. The authors have studied the growth of witnessing communities, what enhances and limits them, and have gathered best practices for transformation. Our churches and fellowships can become places where evangelism is not done by a just few people, but where the whole community itself becomes a winsome, thriving witness to those around it.Break out of the huddle. It's time to get in the game.
