Reaching the Unchurched
Main Text: John 1:41-42a
Introducing and leading people to Jesus and into the fellowship of the church is the most romantic experience within the entire range of Christian service. One of my teachers, David Wieand, had this put on the blackboard one day when I was in his classes:
“I had six honest serving men, they taught me all I knew. Their names are what and where and why and when and how and who.”
In these moments I want to ask my subject these questions, and in the little account of Andrew, find the answer. In other words: Who are the unchurched? Reaching the unchurched with what? Why reach the unchurched? Where reach the unchurched? When reach the unchurched? How reach the unchurched?
Body of Sermon:

2. Reaching the unchurched with what?…
3. Why should we reach the unchurched?…
