New Research on Evangelism

Mark Kelly pens an excellent article on LifeWay’s website titled, “Evangelism Must Begin Beyond the Sanctuary The article contains some research from Ed Stetzer and has implications with respect to how we view the unchurched.

Some of the factoids that stood out to me were:

  • More than half the 1,402 respondents in a 2007 study of unchurched adults said they never wonder whether they would go to heaven if they died.
  • A soon-to-be published 2007 survey of more than 2,500 adult church members found only 25 percent agreed they “spend time building friendships with non-Christians for the purpose of sharing Christ with them.” A full 38 percent actually disagreed with the statement and 36 percent were noncommittal about it.
