What: An effective way to further reach people is through engaging in already organised activities in the community such a sports clubs/trainings or get fit classes.
Why: Through joining a local gym, attending classes, joining a sports club, entering a team into a league etc can enable you to build relationships, seek to reach and disciple ‘people of peace’ that accept you, to share with them the gospel and then invite them to other things you may put on as a church or sports ministry. Jesus said ‘Go make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:16-20) For you that could mean your local gym, football or netball team or fitness class.
How: Decide on what your passion is whether that is football, dance, tennis, squash etc and seek out what is already happening in your community.
When: As often as a team plays/trains, or classes are on e.g. weekly – more regular contact allowed deeper relationships and trust to be built allowing a platform for the gospel to be shared and for discipleship. It also provides an opportunity to invite them to other relevant events you may have planned.
