Describe how you practically/physically served an unbeliever and how you told them you did so because of Christ.

Based on the material presented in this course, plan and participate in at least 2 servant evangelism projects, with 2 different people during the current semester. At least one or both of these should be completed outside of the church setting or church events. Whenever possible, intentionally seek to reach into your “Jerusalem” where you live, work, and play. Servant Evangelism is not an event or church program, rather it is a daily lifestyle of imitating Christ as you serve unsaved people with the intention of sharing the good news of the gospel. Since this is Servant “Evangelism,” not just community service, you should be intentional in trying to share the gospel. Do not just plan servant events without also planning how you will approach sharing the gospel! If you are intentional with the gospel, you will be surprised how often people will respond to your service by asking “why” are you serving them? At this point, DO NOT miss the opportunity to tell the person that you cannot help but serve them because you are so overwhelmed by the love that Christ showed all of us when He willingly served us by dying on the cross for our sin! Thus, He paved the way for all of us to be redeemed through the power of His resurrection . . . all we have to do is believe, repent, and be willing to surrender to Him as Lord! This may not be exactly what you say. But please know, if you do not intend to share the gospel as you serve, you probably will not! So, with this in mind, be very specific in your encounters with people, and utilize the “Three P” process below: 1. P – PERSONAL: The servant evangelism encounters must be personal, face-to-face encounters done within this current 8-week term. 2. P – PRACTICAL/PHYSICAL: In each of the encounters you must meet the physical needs of another unsaved individual. Even though prayer and Bible study are essential to the Christian life and growth, these are unacceptable forms of servant evangelism and do not meet the requirements of this assignment. Simply talking with, or counseling someone, does not meet the requirements. This assignment is for you to meet the practical/physical needs of another unsaved individual with the hopes of intentionally bridging the conversation and service to the gospel (Matthew 25:31–46; James 2:14–20). 3. P – PENNILESS: In each of the servant evangelism encounters you may not receive money for your work. This must be a free service to those you are serving. How to write the Servant Evangelism Report 1. This Report will record One Servant Evangelism Encounter on 1 – 2 pages. 2. Each encounter will be separated into five sections: a. Prelude – Did you know or find out that the person you served was an unbeliever? i. We are looking for at least a one sentence affirmation, on your honor, saying the person you served was an unbeliever. b. Part ONE – Describe how you practically/physically served an unbeliever and how you told them you did so because of Christ. c. Part TWO – What was the initial reaction of the unbeliever? d. Pare THREE – Were you able to share the gospel? If so, what did you say and how did the person respond? If not, what did you say to the person so that they knew you we not just being nice, but you were trying to introduce them to Christ? Did you pray with the person? e. Part FOUR – How did you feel about this approach to evangelism? i. Do you think Servant Evangelism is a helpful approach to evangelism? ii. If not, why not? If yes, explain how you see Servant Evangelism being part of your approach to evangelism heading forward.
