Random Telephone Evangelism to save souls!
Telephone Assisted Evangelism:
by Steve Rudd
One problem common to most Canadian churches (or any small churches) is limited funds for evangelism. We just don't have the money for a correspondence course program which can typically cost anywhere from two-four hundred dollars a month to operate. Therefore there is a great need to find ways of spreading the gospel that are both effective and cost efficient.
The Virtues Of Telephone Assisted Evangelism:
The Phone Book:
It Has Advantages Over A Correspondence Course:
It Has Advantages Over Door Knocking:
Try for a home study FIRST and then if that fails suggest anything else.
It takes about 45 minutes to make 25 calls and the results were: 9 didn't answer/out of service or disconnected
13 said no 3 said yes
Lord bless your efforts!

Mr (s) . ________ _______ [say both their first and last name to generate interest]
