crowdsourcing evangelism in Australia today

In April 2014, Uniting College are hosting a one week intensive, titled Evangelism, Conversion and the mission of God. In preparing for this course, I thought it would be helpful to gain some wider feedback on what people consider to be the issues that need to be explored in such a course.

So, could you give me a few minutes, to provide, from your perspective –

What are the 3 biggest issues regarding evangelism, conversion and the mission of God in Australia today?

  1. How will discipleship look as the church engages with those with whom the gospel has been shared and responded to?
    There seems to b e a lack of discipleship/mentoring/engagement with seekers, responders by the majority of churches.

    flexibility of worship in terms of venue, time, style

    intercultural awareness

  5. Steve,
    I’d ask the standard journalist’s questions: Who? How? Why? What? (Where and When will be answered already.) Who’s to do the evangelising? Who will they evangelise? How and Why will depend on the Who, the context in which they work eg a university, a city, outer suburb,country town, high school. Different challenges in different contexts.
