Evangelism Next Steps

Welcome to the church evangelism page.

We want pastors and leaders to navigate this with ease and clarity. So, you will see we have evangelism goals, resources and podcasts to consider. On deck will be podcast talks from pastors working in the Arizona mission field. Plus, the 5-year evangelism strategy initiatives are new and developed by pastors in our churches. Take a minute and check out the categories.

Some questions to consider:
What’s your next step in evangelism?
What’s your process for evangelism in 2023?
What evangelism equipping will you offer your people in 2023?

Evangelism Discipleship Facilitator

Being from a non-religious family, I worshiped athletic ability. A Christian college football player initiated a conversation with me about Jesus and over time God broke through. My first prayer resembled the sinners prayer I read in Luke 18:13. God turned my heart of stone to a heart of flesh that day and I am most grateful. I help the local church to cultivate conversations that lead to Jesus in her ministry field.

Check Out Our 5-Year Evangelism Strategy Initiatives

The evangelism team of the Arizona Mission Network of Southern Baptists has developed a list of five crucial initiatives to help churches take their unique next step by leveraging leaders, resources, and relationships.


Evangelistic Prayer Development

The 5-year evangelism prayer strategy will be through both online and personal presence gatherings. A cohort of ministry leaders, in-network, will work to develop an evangelistic-minded praying church that prayer walks/drives/google maps their community to gain insights and equips them to share the gospel.

Rise Up From Our Knees and Into Our Neighborhoods.


Creating a Culture of Evangelism

The 5-year strategy leverages churches, in-network and out-of-network, that have an evangelism culture that is evident. We will convene leaders to help churches both locally and regionally in Arizona.

Strive for a Faithful Community Presence and Engagement.


Evangelism Coaching Connections

The 5-year coaching connections will have coaching teams of experienced and knowledgeable ministry leaders that are both in-network and out-of-network to help our churches. The coaches will have a thorough understanding of what resources are available and will be compensated for their time. Coaching will be available in all five of our strategic areas. We believe this will serve our existing churches and plants far better than responding to requests simply by providing financial support with no accompanying coaching or follow-up.

Coaching to Evangelize


Technology That Is Targeted to Evangelize

Our 5-year horizon embraces technology tools that help our network churches work to have a robust “air-war” (online presence) alongside the churches “ground war” (physical presence) in a post-covid world. We will film stories of life-change, because of the local church's digital presence online through social media and their church website.

Air War and Ground War.

Targeted Communities

Evangelizing Targeted Communities in Arizona

The 5-year strategy will target the gospel among both the urban and rural poor, Native Americans and people chained by addictions. We will work to connect churches to partner with existing churches and leaders that evangelize targeted groups in Arizona.
