Church Update – Passionate Evangelism (October 2018-September 2019)
“Reaching Benoni and beyond with the message of the Gospel is our mission.”
Schools Outreach: Over the past year we’ve had many evangelism opportunities. Schools are a great opportunity to reach the children in our suburb. We preach weekly at Jahari Christian Academy and Crystal Park High School. We are often invited to preach at Crystal Park Primary School. From time to time we preach at Noorderlig Gekombineerde Skool. Clinic Outreach: We preach to patients in the mornings and run a monthly soup kitchen. First Responders: We host the weekly Community Police Forum meeting. We also host patrollers meetings and community meetings from time to time.
Baptisms: We baptised 9 people into membership this year. Our ratio of baptisms to membership remains at around 50%.
Visitor Care: We have around 10 first time visitors every Sunday morning. Planning Center: Mark and Tshepo have been improving our capturing of visitor information. We are doing a good job following up new visitors. Hospitality: Tammi has grown the pool of woman serving in this area.
