Pi2 is an innovative and exciting approach to evangelism. It is designed to make evangelism effective, relevant and special.
Pi2 is more than an outreach program; it is a lifestyle in response to the great commission.
Pi2 is based on the premise that how you treat people will determine whether you keep them. By employing this method we are seeking to build positive and healthy relationships with unbelievers and as the relationship grows we are able o more effectively introduce the gospel to them. By that time they have developed an understanding of who you are and what you are about and are more likely to listen tp what you have tp say about Jesus.
Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Pray for 4 people daily
Invest time and build a relationship with them
Invite them to the proper event or environment where the gospel is presented.
Here are some simple ways to battle this tendency to drift away from the very people who most need Christians in their life:
1. Go for a walk. When you see a neighbor, introduce yourself!
2. Try something new. I once joined a community soccer league just to build some new friendships with people outside of the church.
3. Connect with old friends. Call people you have not connected with for months or even years. Seek to rekindle these friendships.
4. Serve in your community. Volunteer in a civic organization, a club, or some other community group. These hours could be more fruitful than time you serve at the church.
5. Enter their world. Ask a non-believing person you know if you can participate in something they enjoy. Hang out in their world.
6. Bridge relationships. Get to know a nonbeliever who is close with one of your Christian friends.
7. Bridge relationships among nonbelievers. Ask a friend who is not a Christian if you can meet and spend time with some of their friends.
8. Make your home a prayer hub. Let your neighbors know that you would be glad to pray for any joys or needs they have. You might be surprised how many non-Christians actually ask you to pray for them. This can lead to spiritual conversations and new friendships.
Ask yourself these two questions often:
How much time do I spend in a normal week with people who are not Christians?
How many friends do I have who are not Christians?
If you are not able to answer these questions, we hope this page can guide you to making a change to REACH.
