FIRST, it is our desire for every believer at FBFC is to be trained how to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Acts 8:4 Initiative was set up as a way for individuals in the church
to enlist the help of the church to reach out to our community.
SECOND, we offer many events throughout the year in order to share the gospel as a corporate body of Christ.
Acts 8:4 Initiative
Grace Community Church has shared this initiative with us.
The Acts 8:4 outreach initiative has been created as a way to encourage member-initiated evangelism and outreach throughout our local community. Acts 8:4 tells,”Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.” It was the regular church members that were scattered about, and these members were eagerly preaching the word wherever they went!
Our desire is to do the same. To gather together for the preached word of God, and then scatter, taking the word with us. To take the gospel into our local businesses, homes, developments, schools, and workplaces. The Acts 8:4 outreach initiative unleashes the resources of the church into the hands of our members – to support the work of proclaiming the gospel and reaching out with the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.
How it works
The evangelism committee has set aside funds designated to cover member-driven outreach ideas. Any member of Faith BFC can submit a proposal, requesting a grant for outreach. Small Group leaders and Ministry Team leaders can also apply for grants towards group-related outreaches.
