Music and evangelism should be a great combination, but often times evangelists face a real battle with their music.
Music and Evangelism is More than a Church Service
We cannot effectively just treat an evangelistic outreach as a regular church service, so this week, Erick interviews Darin on his recent trip to India and the role that music can and should play in evangelism.
Now I know it may seem a little odd interviewing one of the hosts of the show, but Darin has specialised in worship and musical items in evangelistic crusades and outreaches for over 30 years, so he may just have a perspective worth listening to.
Australia’s renowned evangelist Dr. Bill Newman chooses to fly Darin all over the world to sing before he preaches because he believes that the right songs, ministered in the right way, can see more people won for Christ.
So many churches just transfer their regular church service songs and worship when they try to reach out, especially at special services like Christmas and Easter. But evangelism requires music that is much more specific than what we usually sing in church because many times the songs we song and even the subject matter and content of said songs has little or no bearing on the person in the street, who probably has never been to church in their life!
So what is the secret of conducting a great evangelistic outreach meeting, and how can music and evangelism work well so that the songs actually add to the word preached, enhance it and see an even greater harvest of souls that would have been expected? Does an evangelistic meeting mean we cannot use the songs we regularly use in church, or is there a place for both worship leading and solo singers in your outreach?
So learn how music and evangelism can work together for good in today’s exclusive podcast interview…
