Ministry Monday: “Reach” - Glen Scrivener on evangelism through the local church

Posted by Sophia Akouo, 28 Nov 2016

At the recent JAEC conference, Glen Scrivener showed us from 1 Thessalonians that despite appearances, the Church is the definitive move of God in the world.

Revd Glen Scrivener, Evangelist with Revival Media, encouraged us to see that our churches are not simply located in villages, towns, and cities up and down the land, but are a theological reality located in Christ. So although our Church appears weak, God works in the ordinary and we must reach out to the world by church being church. Glen exhorted us toward preaching, prayer, and pastoral care (starting with our own congregations), instead of relying on various programmes and courses.

This is a useful reminder about how God views, and uses the local church to achieve his purposes, and how we need to share God’s vision of church too.

Sophia Akouo is an ordinary Anglican churchgoer who enjoys listening to good talks.
