Now is the day of salvation,
blow the trumpet, sound the alarm on my holy mountain.
 
 
 
 
 
Featured Workshop

As people of God we must be proactive in proclaiming God's truth. Sometimes, in fact most of the time this is difficult, especially when many people do not wish to darken the doors of our sanctuaries. How do we draw people together? How do we get people excited about coming to together? One way is through event evangelism.

Our society is pluralistic. As such, it is not impolite to refuse an invitation to church. But even in our society there is still something culturally compelling about an invitation to a meal, a movie, or a match of some sort. Come on by 2/27/10 and talk to some folks who have done many events and they will share what works and what hasn't worked so well.

Tom Waldron, Peter Myer, Carroll Kolodzik, and Pastor Dick Braun have 60 plus years of experience between them planning and putting on outreach events. Get the latest info on organizing and following through on event evangelism opportunities.

Tom has event leadership experience including: Drama, Music, Video, Master of Ceremonies, Speaking, overall program planning and more. Tom led a drama team while in college - writing original skits, sang with the band and was on the overall leadership team. Their group also went on a summer concert/drama tour through the Midwest.

Pete has done a great deal of event evangelism in charity work over the past 15-20 years. He's worked on handicapped programs, sailing programs, schools and educational programs as well as working with feeding programs and medical supplements. He has done fundraising for are Children's Aid International, Miglat, ANGELCARE, North Coast Marine Institute, AIMS and Challenged America.

Carroll and Pastor Richard have put on many events for Good Shepherd over the years and many have grown to almost take on a life of their own. Easter egg hunts, parenting classes, entertainment on the green, evening at the movies, Thanksgiving feasts, VBS, the Outdoor Service, and much more are all part of some of the outreach events that take place each year at GSLC. It's one thing to have events, but one must always work to make the events successful in building email and address lists. Come and hear how it's done.
