Evangelistic Fervor is Caught More Than Taught

Have you signed up to receive Anthony Wood’s mission updates? Dr. Wood is the lead evangelist and assistant director at River City Ministry – a work serving the poor in homeless in North Little Rock, AR.

Here’s the latest update Anthony sent out to supporters:

He came to RCM with barely any knowledge or understanding of the culture of poverty. He brought his sweet wife and small child. He came to give himself first to You, and second, to answer Your call on his life to be a missionary in this place.

Reaching the Missing Generation @ #pbl12

The Pepperdine Bible Lectures are right around the corner.

Airiel and I will be teaching a class Thursday May 3 at 3:15PM in Keck Science Center 130 (map) entitled “Reaching the Missing Generation: Practical Evangelistic Ministry to Twenty-Somethings”. We’re finishing up our prep this week and are looking forward to being in Malibu next.

In our class we will share observations made regarding common characteristics among a few of the most evangelistically effective 20-something ministries in the United States. Data from national studies performed through Campus Ministry United will inform our content in addition to our own experience in evangelistic 20-something ministries both as students and leaders.

I believe this is going to be a good class, and encourage anyone interested in learning how to better make disciples of young people to attend.

Who will be in Malibu next week?
