I read an interesting article this morning by Paul Watson, 6 Strategic Elements of Online Ministry and Gospel Planting. Starting from Luke 10:1-12, Paul outlines his 6 strategic elements. Paul’s 6 elements are helpful. Other insightful things for me are:
- Start with existing communities, listening and conversing while looking for a person of peace (like a Cornelius, see Acts 10:1-2).
- Work with the person of peace to begin a discovery bible study in which the person invites his friends (as Cornelius did, Acts 10:24).
- Be willing to move from house to house, or community to community, looking for the God-fearers who want to learn more and are willing to take some leadership responsibility in bring others together.
What do you think about this strategy?
