New National Evangelism Point Person Co-ordinators

National Evangelism Point Person Co-Ordinators
I would like to introduce Chris Redstone and Renee Tobin to you, our new National Evangelism Point Person Co-ordinators.
 
What’s an ‘Evangelism Point Person?

Good question. As a team, we recognised that pastors and ministers are busy people.

After attending the DNA change conference, they want evangelism to be central in their church but they just don’t have time to drive all that needs to be done to achieve this end.

Enter the evangelism point person (an EPP) in a local church!

This person works alongside the leader in a church to champion the cause of evangelism.

It’s a brilliant concept because it releases both the pastor and the point person to do what they are gifted and called by God to do!

It’s an example of the Ephesians 4:11-15 five fold ministry gifts working together to build the body of Christ.

As a ministry, we want to pioneer a model which will empower evangelists and pastors to work together harmoniously and fruitfully to grow their churches for the glory of God.

Already, there are many EPPs putting up their hands in churches, eager to take on the role (see the photo at right..ha ha)

We sought the Lord for a suitable person or couple to oversee and disciple all the EPPs nationally.

Over time, it became clear that Chris and Renee were a great fit for this role.

I first met Renee at our very first DNA change conference in Palmerston North earlier this year and then I met Chris her husband a little while later.

Renee (the evangelist) is self employed in the health sector and Chris mixes architectural design with caring for teenage boys in a rehab facility.

Chris also brings to the position 15 years experience in assistant pastoral roles in two Auckland churches.

They attend the flourishing St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Waipukurau where Ian and Lenda Pimm are the ministers (Sorry Lenda, we couldn’t find a photo of you).

This new position within Evangelism Strategies International is critically important as we move deeper into seeking to mobilise the Church to engage in the task of evangelising the world.

I know you will give Chris and Renee your full support and remember them in prayer.

If you’d like to be the EPP in your church, then please click here, download a job description, and discuss it with the leader of your church.

If you would like to contact Renee and Chris, their email address is r.tobin@xtra.co.nz or phone 06 858 7042 or mobile (Renee) 027 535 2486.

    Hello Julian, I tried to click here but couldn’t find here in the space where here is.
    I am already operating in this area in St Marks Presbyterian here in Tokoroa, but am also in the process of encouraging the other Church’s to get other leaders to do the same.
    I am also working with Brian Haggar of the Elim Church to mobilise those who are keen on Evangelism to go House to house with the same survey that Gary Scoggins is using in Te Puke.
    The survey papers are ready as is the cards of all the Church’s and a DVD copy of the BIBLE IN11.COM.
    All I am waiting for now is the labour force to get moving in a big way.
    Until then I am moving out myself to pave the way before the next Ministers Association meeting in a couple of weeks.
    This is on top of the work we do on the Saturday Mornings which we have been doing now for 3 years, with the result that Tokoroa is now one off the biggest buyers of BIBLES from the CLC Bible bus that travels the country, this information was provided by them.
    The next step is the survey that will open the door to show our faith by our works.
    The aim here is to find out the needs within the community and pray for those that need it and provide help where needed.
