Jeff Johnson is the author of Got Style?
In this Evangelismcoach podcast episode, I talk with Jeffrey Johnson about every evangelism style has a place in the ministry of evangelism.
The styles (with one of the characteristics of each style) are:
- assertive (confident)
- story-telling (engaging)
- relational (conversational)
- invitational (hospitable)
- incarnational (compassionate)
In 6 chapters of Got Style? Personality Based Evangelism, Johnson maps out a biblical example of each style, and speaks of strengths and weaknesses of each. This goes way beyond the “this is the best or only way of evangelism” most books focus on.
We’ll be talking about how personal evangelism fits into the local church. The big problem that we see with most evangelism training is that it is divorced from connecting people to the local church. How can we help the church support the work of evangelism?
