During 2013, the Taylor Mill Church in Kentucky has been striving for a culture of evangelism. Rather than having a single evangelistic event, each endeavor dovetails into the next event. The members have supported the events with their time and talents to accomplish many outreach efforts, including:

  • 800+ copies of the Great Controversy distributed door to door with ASI
  • Hosting “Life Line” Health Screening events
  • Vacation Bible Schools
  • The development of discipleship teams and small groups
  • Mailing out 5,000 Bible study cards and following up with Bible studies
  • Hosting the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference Literature Evangelism team for a week long group canvas
  • Mailing of nearly 50,000 handbills with a corresponding television ad inviting people to attend the upcoming prophecy series
  • Forty days of prayer and fasting leading up to the opening night of “Revelation Speaks Hope” with Kieth Noll, conference Evangelist
  • Follow up in the “Prophesies of Hope” class held weekly at the church and personal Bible studies

As a result of the efforts, four people took a stand at the end of the Revelation series, and now another eight have made a decision for Christ as well. The prophecy class has several other attendees who continue to grow in the learning of new truth. A culture of evangelism takes the support and cooperation of many people with varying talents working together for the cause of Christ. Jesus tells us, “Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest?’ I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4:35 NIV
