The movement in our city of Portland, Oregon started over a decade ago, but it was not until 2017 that we realized we were not approaching city-wide evangelism with the same intentional strategy as we had gone about with city-wide service. We would not trade the relationships that have developed and the lessons learned over the last decade for anything. But, in this new season of the Portland city gospel movement, we have increased excitement for thousands of people to hear and respond to the gospel, and for the believers in Portland to be trained to share the gospel in a variety of ways.
This excitement is largely due to the Evangelism Team we began piloting last year. The Evangelism Team acts as a catalyst to keep evangelism a central part of the Portland city gospel movement. Below is a short PDF document you can read to learn how to form an Evangelism Team. We want to freely share what we are learning and encourage every city gospel movement to consider forming an Evangelism Team.
