Evangelism Resources

LCMS Witness and Outreach Ministry

The “&” in Witness & Outreach underscores that there are two different elements to this ministry of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  Witness is the work we have been given to do as the church scattered. We have opportunities to speak of Jesus with the people in our everyday lives who are our friends, co-workers, neighbors, family members, etc.  Outreach is the work we do as the church gathered. It is our collective effort through ministries, services, events and other activities as the church through which we invite and include others into Word and Sacrament ministry. Witness & Outreach are distinct, but they work together so people will know of Jesus and be gathered into His Church through us.

Everyone His Witness Program

Every One His Witness is a relational, contextual Lutheran evangelism program that teaches you how to witness to your nonchurched friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family members. Using the LASSIE approach to witnessing (listen, ask, seek, share, invite, and encourage), you will learn how to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in a natural way with people who are part of your everyday life.

Church Revitalization

The Office of National Mission is addressing the challenge of congregational decline through a comprehensive Revitalization initiative. In the language of 1 Cor. 3:5-9, revitalization is centered on planting and watering in anticipation of God providing the growth.  re:Vitality is a full-scale program that addresses the three fundamental premises of revitalization by providing congregations with resources to improve their abilities to invite, welcome and receive people from outside the congregation.
