Many pastors and congregational members express a strong hesitancy over the prospect of canvassing in their community. They ask, “Does it really work? How will people respond at the door? How will it impact my church?” These are good questions that deserves some good answers.
I love innovation. I love discovering innovative ways to proclaim the gospel. How can congregations respond in this rapidly changing world to communicate what Christ has already done for us?

“Lord, take me out of my comfort zone. Use me, Lord, to be a part of your purpose in bringing lost sheep to the light of Your Word. I give up my selfish pursuits and desires, so that another soul can receive eternal life in heaven. Amen.”
“To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22
