This lesson is on our new website This Is Life Eternal which has a link to NEW LIFE LESSONS at New Life Lessons.  When you use the Automated Church Prospecting System with the PRAYER REQUEST message, you can do as this lesson teaches, have your people begin to pray for those who ask for prayer.  If they are unsaved, you can beg God for their soul and then when the opportunity comes, win them to Christ.  Soul-winning will never be the same.  We recommend that churches run the PRAYER REQUEST  message daily and answer live using only 50 lines so it is easier to answer if there are multiple requests.  For more information contact David Williams at the number he has provided to you.

LEADING MEN TO CHRIST

Scripture Reading: Rom. 1:16; 10:14; 1 Tim. 2:1, 4; Mark 16:15

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16)

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:14)

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15)

In the previous chapter we said that once a person believes in the Lord, he has to witness for the Lord. In this chapter we want to talk about the ways to lead men to Christ. If we do not know how to lead people to Christ, I am afraid that much of our witnessing will be in vain. There are several things which we must do and learn if we want to lead men to Christ. We can group them into two categories: First, going to God on man’s behalf, and second, going to man on God’s behalf. In addition, we would also like to say something about passing out tracts.

I. GOING TO GOD ON MAN’S BEHALF

A. Prayer Being the Foundation
of Leading Men to Christ

There is a foundational work in leading men to Christ. Before one opens his mouth before man, he first must open his mouth before God. We need to first ask God and then talk to men. We always need to talk to God first, not man. Some brothers and sisters are very zealous to lead men to Christ, but they do not pray for them. A man may have great interest in people, but if he has no burden to pray before the Lord, his work of saving souls will be ineffectual. A person must have a burden before the Lord before he can witness to men.

The Lord Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” (John 6:37) According to Acts 2:47, the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. The first thing that we must do is ask God for people, asking Him to give men to the Lord Jesus and to add them to the church. In order for men to be saved, we need to ask God and implore Him. It is very difficult to deal with man’s heart. It is not easy for us to turn a heart toward the Lord. We must first go to God and pray for these people, asking God to bind the strong man “When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.” (Luke 11:21-22). Afterwards, we can talk to them at length. We have to present these people one by one to the Lord and pray for them fervently before we can effectively lead them to Christ.

Those who are good at leading men to Christ are good at prayer. If you have trouble getting answers to prayer, you will have trouble witnessing for the Lord. If you have no confidence in prayer, you will have no confidence in leading men to Christ. Hence, you must learn to pray in a practical way and not let this matter slip by.

B. Preparing a Record Book

In order to pray for people in a proper way, you should keep a record book. Allow God to put the names of those whom He wishes to save in your heart. When you were first saved, how did you know to whom you should go to make restitution? How did you know whom you should repay? It was the Lord who put the person’s name in your heart and who reminded you of particular things. This reminder compelled you to make restitution with others. One day you suddenly thought of something. Another day something else came to your mind. As a result of this enlightening, you dealt with these things one by one. The same principle holds true in leading men to Christ. Allow the Lord to put some names in your heart. When these names are in your heart, spontaneously you will be burdened to pray for them. The Lord may put a few people or a few dozen people in your heart. In writing these names down, the most important thing to remember is to take the names that the Lord has put in your heart. Do not sit down and simply make out a list at random. You will be wasting your time if you mindlessly write down something. Your success will be dependent upon how good your start is. You have to ask God specifically for a few names. Out of all your family members, friends, colleagues, schoolmates, and those whom you know, a few names will spontaneously come to your mind. You will have a feeling for them, and you will want them to be saved first.

A record book should have the following columns: The first column should be a number; the second column, the date; and the third column, the name. This will remind us of the number we have assigned to a person and the date we began to pray for him. The fourth column should also be a date—the date when the person is saved. If the person unfortunately dies, we can put the date of death in this column. One should persist and not give up once a name is in the book. The prayer for a person should follow him until he dies. If the person is alive and not saved, you should keep on praying for him until he is saved. One brother prayed for his friend for eighteen years before his friend was saved. It is not certain when a person will be saved. Some are saved in a year, and some in two to three months. Perhaps one or two of them may prove to be very difficult, but in the end they will still be saved. You should not relax but relentlessly pursue in prayer for their salvation.

C. The Greatest Obstacle to Prayer Being Sin

Prayer is a test; it exposes your spiritual condition before the Lord. If your spiritual condition is proper and normal, others will be saved one by one. As you intercede continuously before the Lord, you may find one or two persons saved after a few days or half a month. After a while, another three or five may be saved. People should be saved regularly. If your prayers are not answered for a long time, it must mean that you are sick before the Lord. You should go to the Lord for light and find out where your problem lies.

The greatest obstacle to prayer is sin. We must learn to live a holy life before the Lord. We must reject all known sins. The moment we take sin lightly or tolerate it, our prayers will be hindered. “Sin has both an objective aspect and a subjective aspect. The objective aspect has to do with God, while the subjective aspect has to do with us. On the objective side, sin obstructs God’s grace and promises. Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” (Isaiah 59:1-2) “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” (Psalms 66:18) If a person does not take care of the problem of sin properly, he will find hindrance to his prayer. Unconfessed sins, sins which are never dealt with by the blood, are a big obstacle before God; they are the cause of unanswered prayer. This is on the objective side.

 

On the subjective side, sin damages man’s conscience. When a person sins, no matter what he says to himself, how much he reads the Bible, how many promises there are in the Word, how much grace God has, and how much He accepts him, his conscience will be weakened and bound. First Timothy 1:19 says, “Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:” A ship may be old or small, but it cannot leak. Similarly, our conscience must not have a leak. As soon as the conscience is not at peace, many prayers cannot be uttered. Thus, there are obstacles not only before God but even within man himself. The relationship between faith and conscience is just like that between a ship and its cargo. Faith is like the cargo, and the conscience is like a ship. When the ship has a leak, the cargo will be damaged. When the conscience is strong, faith will be strong. But when there is a leak in the conscience, faith will be gone. If our heart blames us, God is greater than our heart and knows all things “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” (1 John 3:20)

If you want to be a man of prayer, you must deal with sin thoroughly. You lived in sin for a long time in the past. If you are not careful with it now, you will not be totally free from it. You have to deal with sin seriously; you have to come before God to confess every sin, putting every sin under the blood, refusing it, and coming out from it. Then your conscience will be recovered. As soon as the blood cleanses, the conscience is recovered. There will be no condemnation, and spontaneously you will see God’s face. Never give in to sin. This will weaken you before the Lord. If you are weak before the Lord, you will not be able to intercede for others. As long as sin remains, you will not be able to utter anything in your prayer. Sin is the number one problem. You should pay attention to it all the time, even daily. If one deals with sin properly before the Lord, he will be able to offer proper prayers, and others will be brought to the Lord through him.

D. Praying with Faith

Another important thing is to have faith in our prayers. If the conscience is blameless, it is easy for faith to be strong, and if faith is strong, spontaneously our prayers will be answered.

What is faith? Faith is freedom from doubt. It is to accept God’s promises in our prayers. It is God who asks us to pray and who wants us to pray. God said, “Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” (Isaiah 45:11) If we pray, God has to answer us. Jesus said, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:” (Matthew 7:7) It is impossible for Him not to open after we have knocked. Jesus said, “Seek and you shall find.” It is impossible for us not to find after we have sought. Jesus said, “Ask and it shall be given to you.” It is impossible for us to ask and yet not receive. If we do not believe this, what kind of God do we think our God is? We must see that God’s promises are faithful and dependable. Faith is based on our knowledge of God. The more we know God, the stronger our faith will be. We are saved already; we know God already. Therefore, we can believe; there should not be any difficulty at all for us to believe. When we believe, God will answer our prayers. Learn to be a person full of faith from the very beginning. We should not trust in our feelings or our mind. Instead, we should believe in God’s word. God’s promises are like cash; they work. In fact, God’s promises are God’s work. The promises tell us of God’s work, while His work is the manifestation of His promises. We have to accept God’s promises in the same way we accept His work. When we believe God’s word, abiding in faith rather than in doubt, we will see how real God’s words are and we will find answers to our prayers.

E. Aspiring to Be a Praying Person

We need to have the ambition to be a praying person, a person with power before God. Some people are powerful before God, while others are not. When some people speak, God listens. When others speak, He does not listen. What does it mean to be powerful before God? It simply means that God listens to the person when he speaks. It is as if God is happy to be influenced by such a one. Some people can influence God. Being powerless before God means that God does not listen to the person when he speaks. Such a one may spend much time before God, but God ignores him. We must have the desire and the aspiration to see that God often answers our prayers. No blessing can be greater than God answering our prayers all the time. We have to pray to Him, “May every request of ours be pleasing to Your ears.” It is a most glorious thing for God to incline His ear to us. It is a tremendous thing for God to trust us to the extent that He can give us whatever we ask.

You have to present to the Lord the names that you are burdened with and pray for them one by one. See how long it takes for God to save them. If your prayers are unanswered after a long period, you have to deal with yourself and with God. In order for your prayers to be answered, it is often necessary to go through specific dealings. Unanswered prayer means that there is sickness somewhere. If you do not mean business in this matter, you will always fail.

This is why you need a record book. The record book will show you whether or not your prayers are answered. Many people do not know whether their prayers are answered because they do not have a record of anything. Newly saved brothers and sisters should learn to have such a record book. Then they will know whether or not their prayers are answered. They will know whether there is a problem between them and the Lord. They will know also when they have to deal with themselves and when they have to deal with God. I have kept such a record book for years, even before I attended and graduated from Hyles-Anderson College because of this teaching. I have seen many wonderful answers which are recorded in such a record book. Recently we have begun to send out a voice broadcast that asks people for their prayer request. Now I have begun to put those prayer requests on my list and some have even been answered before I had even contacted those for whom I was praying.

If you have prayed for a long time and there is still no answer, you should realize that there must be some hindrance. The hindrances always occur because there is sin in your conscience or there is a problem with your faith. New believers need not worry about the deeper aspects of prayer. They need only to pay attention to their conscience and their faith. Before the Lord, we have to confess, deal with, and refuse our sins. At the same time we have to genuinely and fully trust in God’s promises. If we do this, we will see people being saved one by one, and our lives will be full of answers to prayer.

F. Praying Daily

You have to pray for those around you. Is there no one who needs your prayers? How many colleagues do you have? How many neighbors do you have? How many relatives and friends do you have? Always ask the Lord to place one or two special persons in your heart. When the Lord places a person in your heart, He intends to save this person through you. You should write down his name in your record book and continually bring him to the Lord through prayer.

You need to set aside a fixed time daily for this work of intercession. Whether it be an hour, half an hour, or a quarter of an hour, it must be a fixed time. If there is no fixed time for prayer, there will not be definite prayer. As a result, there will not be any prayer at all. Hence, always fix a time for prayers, whether it is a quarter of an hour or half an hour. Do not be too ambitious; do not plan for two hours and end up not being able to carry it out. It is more practical to set aside one hour, half an hour, or a quarter of an hour. Always fix a time to pray for those who need your prayer. Do not relax. Do this every day. After a while, you will see sinners saved one by one.

G. A Few Examples of Intercession

We will mention a few stories here to show you how others have done this work.

1. A Boiler Worker

Once a boiler worker in a ship was saved. He asked the brother who led him to Christ, “Please tell me the first thing that I must do for the Lord?” The brother replied, “The Lord will choose a few of your companions and put them in your heart. You will have to pray for them.” There were more than ten persons working together at his place. He remembered one person in particular and prayed for him daily. That person found out about this, and he became angry. Later, an evangelist came by and preached the gospel to the men there. After the meeting he stood up and said, “I want to believe in Jesus.” The evangelist asked, “Why do you want to believe in Jesus?” He said, “A person has been praying for me for some time. I have to believe in Jesus.” The boiler worker had been praying for this man. Although he did not like this in the beginning, the power of prayer overcame him, and in the end he accepted the Lord.

2. A Sixteen-year-old Youth

A sixteen-year-old youth was working as a copy writer in a construction firm. The chief engineer of the company had a very bad temper and almost everyone was afraid of him. After the youth was saved, he started to pray for the chief engineer. He was afraid of the engineer and dared not open his mouth, yet he prayed earnestly for him daily. After a short while, the engineer asked him, “I have over two hundred people in the company, but I feel that you are different. Can you please tell me why you and I are so different?” The engineer was about forty to fifty years old, and the youth was only sixteen. The young man answered, “I have believed in the Lord, and you have not.” The engineer immediately said, “I also want to believe in Him.” The youth brought him to the church, and the engineer was saved.

3. Two Sisters

In Europe there are guest houses which are open to strangers. They are not hotels, but they receive travelers. Once there were two Christian sisters whose house was open to travelers. Sometimes, as many as twenty or thirty would stay at their place. They noticed the luxury of the travelers’ attire and the vanity of their conversation. The sisters were bothered and wanted to win them over to Christ. However, there were many guests and only two of them. How could they win them over? They decided to sit at the two ends of the room during the conversation and pray for the guests from each end.

On the first day during the after-dinner conversation, each sister sat at one end, praying for the guests one by one. One prayed from one end, and the other prayed from the other end. They prayed for each and every one of them. This stopped the guests’ jesting and chatting on that first day. They asked themselves what had happened. On that day, one person was saved. The next day, another lady was saved. One by one they were gradually all brought to the Lord.

Prayer is indispensable. The first condition in bringing people to the Lord is intercessory prayer. We must pray systematically, orderly, daily, and relentlessly, until our friends are saved.

II. GOING TO MAN ON GOD’S BEHALF

Merely going to God on man’s behalf is not enough. We also have to go to man on God’s behalf. We have to tell men about God. Many people have the courage to speak to God, but they have no courage to speak to man. We have to exercise boldness to speak to men. We have to tell them the kind of Lord our Lord is. When we speak, we need to pay attention to a few things.

A. Never Engaging in Useless Arguments

First, never engage in useless arguments. This does not mean that there should never be any arguments. Acts tells us of a few arguments. Even Paul argued (cf. Acts 17:2, 17-18; 18:4, 19). However, useless arguments do not save people. Sometimes it is all right to engage in arguments. But this is mainly for the benefit of other listeners. Try to avoid arguing with the ones you are trying to save because arguments often drive people away instead of bringing them in. If you argue with them, they will run away.

Many people think that arguments can touch men’s hearts. Actually, this never happens. At the most, arguments can convince men’s minds. Their mouths may be shut, but their hearts will not be won over. Arguments produce little result. Try to say less in the way of argument and more in the way of testimony. You have only to tell others that you felt happy and peaceful after you believed in the Lord Jesus, that you sleep well now, and that even meals are becoming tastier. No one can argue with you about these things. They can only wonder. You have to show them that they do not have your kind of peace and joy and that they should therefore believe in the Lord.

B. Keeping to the Facts

The key to leading men to the Lord is to emphasize the facts, not the doctrines. Just recall what it was like when you were saved. You did not believe because you understood the doctrines. Many people understand the doctrines, but they do not believe. It is impossible for any brother to try to lead others to Christ through arguments and doctrines. The key to leading men to Christ is to keep to the facts. This is why simple ones often are more effective in leading others to the Lord; those who are good at doctrines may not lead others to the Lord. Some people can give wonderful messages. But what use is there in winning the minds of others, if one cannot help them be saved?

Once there was an old man who considered going to church a good habit. He was not saved, yet he would go to church every Sunday and also make his whole family go. But when he returned home, he would lose his temper, and all kinds of bad words would come out of his mouth. The whole family was afraid of him. One day his daughter, who was a believer, came to visit him. She brought her little daughter with her. The old man brought the little granddaughter to the church. When they came out of the church, the little granddaughter looked at her grandfather and felt that he did not look like a believer. She asked him, “Do you believe in Jesus?” The grandfather said, “Children should keep their mouths shut.” After walking a few steps, she said to her grandfather again, “You do not look as if you have believed in Jesus.” Again the old man said, “Children should keep their mouths shut.” After a while she asked her grandfather, “Why do you not believe in Jesus?” This little child saw a fact—the way her grandfather attended church was different from the way other believers attended church. The old man, who was otherwise wild and hard to deal with, became soft after his little granddaughter’s probing questions. On that day he accepted the Lord.

The preaching of the gospel requires skill. One must know the way God works before he can preach the gospel. A person may preach the right doctrines, and crowds of people may come for his messages, but the same crowds may walk away unsaved. You will not get any fish with a straight hook. The fishing hook must be curved before one can catch fish. Those who lead others to the Lord need to know how to use a hook. Use only the words that can catch people. If your words cannot catch people, try to change the way you speak. Facts are words that catch; they are words that can touch others.

C. Being Sincere in Attitude

Do not delve into many teachings. Try to speak more facts. At the same time, be sincere in attitude. Saving a man’s soul is not a light matter. I once saw a person who wanted to lead others to the Lord. He was willing to pray, but his attitude was wrong. He joked around as he spoke about the Lord. Whatever spiritual power he might have had was lost through his jokes. As a result, he could not lead anyone to the Lord. One has to be very sincere in his attitude. He must not be flippant or funny in his attitude. He has to let others see that this is the most serious matter in the whole world.

D. Praying for the Opportunity to Speak

You also need to pray unceasingly for God to provide you with the right opportunity to speak. When you pray, God will give you the opportunity.

One sister gathered a group of women together once a week and led them in a Bible study. The women all worked in the same company, and none of them believed in the Lord. One of them was very particular about her dress. She was very proud and would not listen to anything the sister said. The sister took notice of her and prayed for her. She asked God to give her the opportunity to speak to the woman. One day she felt a desire to invite the woman over for tea. Since this woman loved to socialize, she accepted the invitation. When she came, the sister encouraged her to believe in the Lord. She replied, “I cannot believe. I like to gamble, and I love pleasure. I do not want to lose these things. I cannot believe in Jesus.” The sister said, “If a person wants to believe in the Lord Jesus, she has to stop gambling. Anyone who wants to believe in the Lord Jesus must give up vainglory. You have to give up these things if you want to believe in the Lord Jesus.” The woman said, “The price is too high. I cannot afford it.” The sister said, “I hope you will go back and consider it.” After she said this, she continued to pray for her. The woman returned home and knelt down to pray. After she prayed, she suddenly said, “I have decided to follow the Lord Jesus today.” She changed suddenly. She could not explain it, but her heart just turned. She changed her attire; she no longer dressed the same as before. Wonderful things followed one after another. Within a year many of her colleagues were brought to the Lord one by one.

You may think that it is difficult to talk to someone, but if you pray for him, the Lord will give you the opportunity to speak to him, and he will change. The sister who was having Bible studies had been afraid to speak to the woman because the woman behaved as though she knew everything and could do everything. She appeared to be very arrogant, but the Lord gave this sister the burden to pray for her. One day the Lord told the sister to speak to her. She put aside her considerations and spoke to her. You have to pray on the one hand and learn to open your mouth on the other. After you have prayed for a person for some time, the Lord will impress you to speak to him. You will have to tell him about the Lord’s grace and the things that He has done for you. He will not be able to resist you because he cannot oppose the things that the Lord has done for you. The newly saved brothers and sisters must pray daily for the Lord to provide opportunities to speak to others. What a pity that some people have been saved for several years already, yet they dare not open their mouths to speak to their relatives and friends! Perhaps your fear has caused you to miss many opportunities that were waiting for you.

E. Speaking in Season and out of Season

We mentioned earlier that you must pray before you speak to a person. This, however, does not mean that you cannot speak if you have not prayed. You have to speak to men even if you are seeing them for the first time. Always grasp the opportunity to speak, whether in season or out of season. You never know who you are missing. Speak whenever there is the chance. Always be prepared to open your mouth. Of course, first and foremost, you have to pray for those whose names appear in your record book. But you have to pray for those whom you do not know. You should pray, “Lord, please save the sinners. Whoever they may be, please save them.” Whenever you meet someone and have an urge in your heart to speak, you should speak to him.

If we do not heed this urging, we may let a soul slip away from us. We should not let so many souls slip through our hands. We hope that all the brothers and sisters will testify faithfully for the Lord and bring many to Christ.

F. Studying Carefully

Each time you lead someone to the Lord, you have to do a detailed analysis, just like a doctor who studies each patient’s case in detail. The doctor cannot prescribe the same medicine to everyone. Certain sicknesses require certain drugs. He administers a particular drug to a particular patient. The same is true in leading men to Christ. No one can be a doctor without studying medicine. In the same way, no one can lead men to the Lord without studying. Some brothers and sisters are good at bringing people to the Lord because they have studied the ones whom they brought to the Lord. At the beginning of the work of leading men to Christ, a new believer has to work hard to study each case. You should always study why a particular person accepted the Lord. Why did a particular word open him up? Why did another person not believe after hearing a particular word? Why did a person shy away after listening attentively for a while? Why did a person accept when he earlier had opposed? Why are there no fish after waiting for a long time? We always have to find the reason that the Spirit is working, and we also have to find the reason that the Spirit is not working.

If you fail to lead men to Christ, do not put all the blame on others. Those who are good at leading people to the Lord always look for problems within themselves. We cannot wait by the seaside and hope that the fish will jump to the shore. Leading people to the Lord is not so simple. We have to spend time to study and learn where the problems lie. Leading people to the Lord is a skill, and this skill is acquired through working with people. There is always something we can learn, whether through failure or success. Through failure, we learn the reason for our failure. Through success, we learn the reason for our success. In every situation, we need to study the reasons behind the results.

If you do this conscientiously, you will learn many lessons. Eventually, you will discover an interesting thing—as far as believing in the Lord is concerned, there are only a few types of people in the world. If you meet a certain type of person, you will need only to speak certain words to him, and he will receive the Lord. If you speak something else to him, he will oppose you and not believe. If you know how to handle these few types of people, you can handle most people. You can handle those whose names are in your record book, and you can handle those whom you come across by accident. As soon as you come across someone, you will take the opportunity to witness to him, and you will be able to tell immediately the type of person he is. You will know in your heart what to do with this type of person and how to speak to him. He will most likely be saved. If you study your cases one by one, you will become a very skillful soul-winner after one or two years. You will realize that soul winning takes wisdom. By God’s mercy, you may lead some to the Lord, maybe a few dozen, or even a few hundred. If you study all these cases carefully, you will become a very powerful soul-winner.

APPENDIX:
PASSING OUT TRACTS

A. No Time Limit

During the past two to three hundred years, the Lord has used tracts in a particular way to save many people. One thing special about winning people with tracts is that tracts are not limited by time. If you try to testify with your mouth, you are restricted by time and personnel. You cannot speak twenty-four hours a day, and your audience may not be available all the time. You may be preaching a wonderful message, but the audience may not be there. However, tracts are not limited by time. You can pass out tracts any time of the day, and men can receive and read your tracts any time of the day. Today many people do not have the time to come to our meeting. But tracts are not limited by time. We can give them out to people who are walking on the streets, who are cooking in their kitchens, or who are working in their offices. This is the first convenience that tracts afford.

B. Tracts Can Convey the Gospel in Full

Many people are very zealous in testifying for the Lord and leading men to Christ. However, their knowledge is limited and their words are lacking. They cannot convey the gospel message adequately and fully. In addition to leading men to Christ through other means, a new believer has to do his best to select some good tracts in his spare time and pass them out to others. This will enable him to do what he himself could not do otherwise.

C. Tracts Not Being Affected by Human Factors

There is another advantage to using tracts. In preaching the gospel, sometimes we feel too shy to use strong words in front of people. Tracts do not have this inconvenience. They can go to anyone and say anything they want. A living preacher is often restricted by circumstances. But the preaching of the tracts is not affected by any human factors. New believers should learn to sow seeds with the tracts.

D. Passing Out Tracts Being a Way of Sowing

Another advantage of passing out tracts is that one can sow anywhere. The Old Testament says that we should sow our seed in many waters (Num. 24:7). It takes a considerable effort to speak to three, five, or ten persons together. But there is no difficulty in passing out a thousand, two thousand, or three thousand tracts a day. If one person can be saved out of the thousand tracts we pass out, this is wonderful enough. New believers should learn to pass out tracts in large quantities.

E. God Saving Men through Tracts

God has indeed used tracts to save people. I know of some people who slip tracts under doors. Others drop them into mailboxes. I remember an incident in which a person received a tract and then threw it away on the street. Another person, who had a nail stuck in his shoe, was looking for something to cushion his foot. He picked up the tract and stuffed it in his shoe. He returned home and began to mend his shoe. Then he saw the tract and was saved. There are numerous similar cases of people being saved by tracts. Some of these cases are actually quite marvelous.

F. Much Prayer and Dedication of Heart

A newly saved brother always should have tracts ready in his pockets, and he should pass them out when he is free. Like the work of leading men to Christ, we should do this with much prayer and dedication of heart. While we are passing out tracts, we can speak a word or two to others or we can remain silent. Either way is good. If a new believer practices this, he will receive great benefit from it.

I have used these thoughts and words for many years before I went to Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point Indiana. There we learned many other ways to witness besides passing out tracts. Dr. Hyles’ book “Let’s Go Soul Winning” is probably one of the greatest tools to teach a young convert a very simple way to lead anyone to the Lord with the Romans Road. You can see me using this same plan if you watch the video on the main page of this site where I am giving the plan of salvation and then leading anyone who is watching the video to pray to receive Christ.

Please follow this list of screen shots to set up a campaign:

Click on “LOG IN” at the upper right

Click on “Membership Login”

Place your Username and Password

Check the box “I Agree”

Check the next box “I Agree”

Check the Third Box and then type in “I ACCEPT” AND CLICK ON THE GREEN LETTER BUTTON

View Account Balance

Click the button “Configure” to see the menu at the left

Set up your voice message or view existing messages

Set up Caller ID for campaign

Click on the upper right to load a list at the link “Phone Lists” on the left. Make sure you only upload CSV or text files.  The above window will come up.  First name the list and then browse for the list you want and click “Next.”

Click on “Lead Phone” to the left and then click the phone number column at the top to highlight both in green.

Click on “Extern ID” (means external ID) and click the top of the phone number column.  It means you chose the phone number column for the first two identifiers on the left.

The next three identifiers on the left are First, Middle, and Last name.  Do each one separately and choose the column that applies to each.  Most databases don’t have a “Title” or “Suffix.”  I never use those.

Middle name same as above.

Same as the last two above, last name to the left and last name column.

After First Middle and Last Name put address, the next example is for apartment or lot #.

Lot# or apartment #

City

This is for state!

Zip Code – many have the extra 4 numbers.

Many databases do not have email but if they do, use this option.

Notice the “Save” button at the lower right of the last frame.  After loading your list click this and you will be sent to the page with all the lists.  Wait a minute or two and click “Refresh List” to view the newly uploaded list.

After clicking “Refresh List” the new database appears at the top of all lists.

Next on your links to the left is “Schedule.” Generally I leave it as is and just name it “General.”  The schedule can be set for start and stop times for any day of the week.  If you don’t use that feature you can just start manually by changing from “Pause” to “Active” and then back to “Pause” when the campaign is done or when you have enough leads to stop the campaign.  Always make sure that you have the current date when you re-start a campaign.

This shows how you can either leave it open or slide the start and stop times for custom schedule.

Creating a campaign.  This is the list of campaigns if you have more than one.  To create a new campaign click “New Campaign” at the upper right of the page.

Click the “New Campaign” button for a new campaign.

This is the “Campaign Wizard” The first thing to do is name the campaign on the upper left.  Next chose the campaign type.  A “Simple” campaign only gives your list a message with you ability to respond.  The best kind of campaign is “Press 1” which elicits a response from the prospect, thus creating a live lead that you can use for your visitation program.  Below “Campaign Type” is “Campaign State” which is defaulted to “Paused” until you change it to “Active” which starts the campaign running until you again change it to “Pause” which you can do several times if your schedule is left open as explained above on “Schedule.”  Below Campaign state is a place for two messages since our system recognizes both live answer and answering machine.  For a “Press 1” campaign you need to end the “Answer Message” with a statement, “…for more information press one now…” but for a machine message you have the same message initially but replace this last statement with, “…for more information please call…..” and add your contact phone.  When creating the new campaign the start date will be defaulted to the day you create the campaign.

When you double click on either the “Answer Message” or the “Machine message you will see this window open where all your messages are stored.  Please double click on the one you need as in the highlighted one above called “Prayerrequestlive.pcm”

After double clicking on Answer Message above, your message will now be loaded as above.  Then do the Machine message.

This shows the “Machine Message” being highlighted.  Double click on this one also to load it in your campaign.

As you can see, both messages are now loaded.  After you finish this page click “Next”

Now you will set up several things.  Please use the same settings you see here.  The only thing missing is “Caller ID” so you need to click the blue link to the right of the * Select a Caller ID  Actually this is defaulted to “Max Passes” (1) but should be changed to (2).  The check boxes are set so your system will redial on “Intercept,” “Busy,” or (Other) which is fax tone or similar.  You don’t want to redial on No answer or Machine or people will think you are harassing them with calls.  You can change the “Max Ports” to 50 or 100 to slow the campaign because the system will call so fast you may not be able to answer or follow up on too many at a time.  Just test different amounts.  Also, you can up the number of “Max Xfer Ports” so you will get more responses, especially if you are using Gmail Voice to answer the calls.  If you are answering live the number should be as above. 

When you have clicked on “Select Caller ID” you get this window.  You should already have one on the left but if not, you can create one as shown here.

Had you created a “Caller ID” in step one it will be seen here and just double-click on the highlighted “Caller ID” and it will now appear in the space where you first clicked the blue link.

This shows the “Caller ID” after double clicking on the above frame.  After completing this page click “Next.”

The next window after clicking “Next” will be to chose a “Schedule” from the drop-down menu or click the box for a “Custom Schedule” and when finished with either click “Next.”

Next, choose a phone list from your list of uploaded lists for this particular campaign as shown above and then click “Save” to complete the wizard.

Now you will see the new campaign listed in your “Campaign List” so you will need to double-click the campaign to run it or edit any of the things you have just set up like a different list or message.

After double-clicking on your campaign you open this control panel.  You can now change the campaign from “Paused” to “Active” and you will notice that your first message has been transferred to the tab for “Survey Question.”

This is what you will see.  It is set to “1” for a “Press 1” campaign.  Also, don’t forget to check the box “Record Transfer” so all your prospects are recorded when the campaign is finished.  You will also notice tabs for “Schedule,” “Phone Lists,” “Survey Questions,” and “Rehash.”  This allows you to edit any part of the campaign.  “Rehash” is to re-create the list after the campaign has used all the numbers.

This is the lower part of the campaign configuration display two frames earlier showing the lower part and the adjustments that were made during the Campaign Wizard.  In order to test your campaign click on “Test Call” and insert your phone number, then save it.  You will get a call from the system so you can hear what your messages sounds like to a prospect.

This next link is entitled “DNC Manager” where anyone that complains and does not want to be called can be protected by adding their number to the internal DNC and it will be saved in the system so they won’t receive any other calls when you rehash to list for another campaign.

This last link, “Result File Destination” is for your email so the system will send you a report when the campaign is done.  Also, the next main link at the bottom left – “Stats & Reporting” allows you to print a report as well by naming the campaign.

For any questions regarding any of this, please do not hesitate to call me at 727-223-5910 and I can walk you through the whole thing or any part.  Also, we have excellent “Tech Support” that we can enlist for any glitch or problem you encounter.

 

Written on September 17th, 2017 , Tutorial for Using the System

MOCGA – Make our church great again this fall.

How to you publicize your church?  I am writing this to give you ideas that some of the great churches in the country use to bring new visitors to their church and if you want to Make Our Church Great Again you should use these ideas.  Besides door to door visitation, bus ministry, Sunday School visitation and many other kinds of visitation every church needs something to bring excitement and energy to your weekly services.  Here are some great ways to do just that will bring energy to your church and get the people involved in growing your church.  You should plan your church calendar with these types of things on them every year and plan them a year ahead, doing it every year:

  1. The first thing to do is plan the natural high days.  These days will include Easter, Promotion Day, revival Sundays, etc.

    Do not plan special activities on these days, for these days take care of themselves.  People come quickly to Sunday school on Easter just because it is Easter.  Consequently you should save your big drive and big push for other Sundays, realizing that Easter and other high days like Thanksgiving and Christmas will take care of themselves.

  2. The next thing to do is plan natural low days.  There are always natural low days in a year.  One is Memorial Day weekend.  Another is Labor Day weekend, the Fourth of July weekend, etc.  Every pastor should plan something special for these natural low days.
  3. Then you should plan something for a naturally low season.  The natural low season is the summertime.  Many churches have a summer camp.  There is always the fact that people take vacations of four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and even up to 13 weeks vacations.  So the church should plan something during the summer.  A great idea is what is called a “Cary the Load Sunday.”  Each department of the church is requested to “carry the load” on one of the Sundays during the summer.  On that Sunday, the department which is “carrying the load” will plan a big super colossal Sunday.  The first day would be Beginners’ Day.  The beginners promote a big Sunday.  When the beginners have a large crowd it also means that the adults have a large crowd.  Since there is not a single beginner that can drive a car it means that their parents will have to drive them to Sunday school.  The next summer Sunday is the Primaries big day.  Then comes Junior I, then Junior II, then Junior High, and then High School.  You can do the same with College age for those who come home for the Summer or live in the community.  The idea is that each department has a big Sunday and because of the bigness of that department the whole Sunday School is helped by the attendance of that particular department.  So, whatever department is having the Big Day will be blessed to have the pastor or one of the assistant pastors go to that department on that Sunday.  He preaches a gospel sermon that fits the particular age group, gives an invitation, trying to get people saved in that department during their Big Day.  Then those that were saved on the “Carry the Load Day” for that department are instructed to walk down the aisle during the main church service during the invitation.
  4. The fourth thing a church can do in planning for the year is to plan for special holidays.  Plan something for Mother’s day like a flower for every mother or a ball point pen engraved with “Happy Mother’s Day” or other fine gifts that you can create specially for mothers on that day.  You can give a bouquet of flowers to the “Oldest Mother,”  “Youngest Mother,” “Mother with the most children,” “Mother with the most Grand children” and any other idea your church has for recognizing mothers.  Additionally you can do similar things for Father’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas and other special days that in the normal yearly calendar.
  5. The fifth thing that can be done is to plan for special seasonal days.  You can have “Back To School Day” when school starts in the fall, “Old Fashioned Day” during any season, fall “Kick-Off Sunday,” or “Round-Up Sunday,” the church anniversary of the day it was started, the Pastor’s anniversary, including other types of anniversaries and seasonal days which are all easy to promote.
  6. The sixth thing to do is plan for special activities.  If you are having Vacation Bible School during the summer then you can have “Vacation-Bible-School Sunday” and let it help your Sunday School attendance.  If you have a youth camp during the summer you can have “Youth-Camp Sunday where the church brings the campers to see them off and it can be a way to promote and get more in attendance.
  7. Seventh, and this is one of the best you can use, is to plan a ten-week spring program and a ten-week fall program.  You can begin on the last Sunday in March, go through April and May and into the first Sunday of June.  You can give prizes for the most visitors each week and have a big day at the end trying to double your attendance and make a big deal out of the one the brought the most during the program and also the one that brought the most on the big day.  In the fall you can start on the last Sunday of September or the first Sunday of October and have the fall program run through October culminating on a Big Day on the first Sunday of December.  One idea is to have new testaments engraved in gold with an image or name of the church and give the new testament to every visitor that attends the services.  During these spring and fall programs have a contest in every department as well as a contest for the whole church.  These programs will be the life blood of your church.  Try to have a first prize that is attractive to all like motel rooms and meals in a nice hotel or motel for the family bringing the most visitors including meals and send them to a good Bible conference like the Sword of the Lord Conference in your area during the year.  You should have several prizes, first, second, third, and more.  When I was in college one of the bus divisions bought an old Dodge sports car with a wing on the back, painted it and offered it to the one that brought the most visitors.  I think it cost $500 but a Greek kid filled six busses on the big day with family members to win the car.  You will be amazed at what this will do for your church.  It will be the life blood of the church from now on.  Your prizes should also be spiritual in nature, Bibles, Family Bibles, great books, Bible Study Software, and many other things you can find on the Sword of the Lord website.  You can use many of the find things on that site for promotion in every department of the church.
  8. Plan for four big, super colossal days each year.  Have one big day each quarter, the kind of day that will double your attendance.  If a church is running 100 in Sunday, don’t shoot for 150, rather make it a huge day by doubling the attendance.  The bigger the goal the more the people will be challenged.  A big goal inspires the desire in people to do something big for God.  Isn’t it time that we quit playing church, playing a little church and do something big by faith?  Why not grow your Sunday school for the Lord Jesus Christ.  Here is a list of some big days your church could do:
    1. “Old-Fashioned Day.”  This annual occasion, one of the most enjoyable times in any church and the people will want one every year.  On this day have a collection of antiques from people in the church, antique cars, or other collectables like old-fashioned churns, wash pots, spinning wheels, clocks, Bibles, curling irons, smoothing irons and other things that everyone has at home.  Someone may have an old fashioned pump-organ.  On old fashioned day pass a hat for the offering rather than an offering plate.  Have an old fashioned mourner’s bench at the altar covered with old worn-out quilts.  Do the baptism in a creek nearby.  In the evening service have only candle light with the main lights turned off.  Everyone wears old-fashioned clothes and you can even have a price for the one or family with the best old-time clothing.  There is an old fashioned message!  The offering is unique, the ushers say “Amen” for a $10 bill, “Praise the Lord” for a $20 bill, “Glory to God” for a $50 bill, and “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah” when someone puts in a $100 bill or more.  Sing songs like “The Old Time Religion.”  Have an old time Gospel Quartet.  We used to have 4 men come with overalls, rope belts and have them pantomime to a quartet number.  The biggest guy pretended to have the high tenor voice and the smallest guy was the DEEP BASS.  People loved it.
    2. The church’s birthday once a year, the same day as they had their first service.  Have a big birthday cake in honor of the church birthday.  One church had a HUGE birthday cake weighing 700 lbs.  A candle is lighted for each department that reaches their goal.  It is the church’s birthday.
    3. Another day is “Back-To-School Day.”  Personal letters (you can use the voice broadcasting system also for all of these promotions) are sent to every school student.  A corsage is given to each lady school teacher and boutonnieres are given to every man school teacher.  A prize is given to each child who gets their own school teacher to come to church with them.  There is a special prayer of dedication for every school teacher that attends on “Back-To-School Day.”
    4. Another day can be “Baby Day.”  A special letter is sent to parents of babies (also use the voice broadcast system to call every parent and invite them to church.  There is a little gift for every child, perhaps a New Testament (blue for boys and pink for girls) and maybe a corsage is given to the mother of the baby.
    5. You can have an annual “Home-Coming Day” that fits your church.
    6. “Picture-Taking Day” is one is one of the best days your church can have.   Each class can have a picture made, pictures can be made on “Record Breaking Day” or other ideas can be “Absentee Day,” Good-Neighbor Day,” “Christmas Sunday,” “Ladies Rally,” “Men’s Rally,” “Pack-a-Pew Day” and any other day you and your church can come up with.

Remember that with every promotion mentioned here the very best tool for advertising each of your promotions is the Automated Voice Broadcast System.  Your church will never be the same if you have a plan, work your plan, and don’t get sidetracked.  Be like William Carey, “Expect something big from God and attempt something big for God.”  Just like a recent political campaign entitled MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, your slogan for the year can be “Make Our Church Great Again.”

If you don’t have one of our Automated Broadcast Systems go to the front page and sign up.  We will give you the system for life with no monthly payments and a database for your area included.  The only thing you will need to do is pay for the minutes like a pay-as-you-go phone.  The calls normally come to 1.5 cents per call.  You can call 10,000 people for around $40.  There is no better and cost effective way to reach people for Jesus Christ.

 

Pastor, I have done it all, door to door soul-winning, sending postcards,etc… When I was introduced to this voice broadcast system I was never the same.  This data system will call thousands of new prospects for your church in just a few minutes of time. Right from your home or office. All you need is a computer and our calling process will do the work. We will teach you have to use it and we will give you the data base of your state for FREE!

fhf-7-hole-in-roof-6-hole-in-roof-with-verseJeanie and I were reading Spurgeon today in his Morning and Evening devotional.  The message was about the inventive means that some people took to bring a poor sick man to Jesus by breaking through the roof.  Read it here and I will make some comments:

<–Begin Quote–>

Morning:

“And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.” — Mark 2:4

Faith is full of inventions. The house was full, a crowd blocked up the door, but faith found a way of getting at the Lord and placing the palsied man before him. If we cannot get sinners where Jesus is by ordinary methods we must use extraordinary ones. It seems, according to Luke 5:19, that a tiling had to be removed, which would make dust and cause a measure of danger to those below, but where the case is very urgent we must not mind running some risks and shocking some proprieties. Jesus was there to heal, and therefore fall what might, faith ventured all so that her poor paralysed charge might have his sins forgiven. O that we had more daring faith among us! Cannot we, dear reader, seek it this morning for ourselves and for our fellow-workers, and will we not try to-day to perform some gallant act for the love of souls and the glory of the Lord.

The world is constantly inventing; genius serves all the purposes of human desire: cannot faith invent too, and reach by some new means the outcasts who lie perishing around us? It was the presence of Jesus which excited victorious courage in the four bearers of the palsied man: is not the Lord among us now? Have we seen his face for ourselves this morning? Have we felt his healing power in our own souls? If so, then through door, through window, or through roof, let us, breaking through all impediments, labour to bring poor souls to Jesus. All means are good and decorous when faith and love are truly set on winning souls. If hunger for bread can break through stone walls, surely hunger for souls is not to be hindered in its efforts. O Lord, make us quick to suggest methods of reaching thy poor sin-sick ones, and bold to carry them out at all hazards.

<–End Quote–>

When I read this, it reminds me of what we have done with the Automated Church Prospecting system.  As he says above, FAITH IS FULL OF INVENTION.  We created this because we had faith to believe that God would reach many, which we have seen in an amazing way.  What does it take to get some of us to see that something new may be like these men letting down a man through the roof.  What do you think the people below thought?  Were they upset at the dirt, dust, and pieces of roofing tile falling on those below?  Were they upset that someone was getting to the “front of the line” to see Jesus when so many were on the outside not able to get in?  The story shows how that the rulers of the Jews thought Jesus was committing blasphemy when he said, “Thy sins be forgiven thee.”  That was, until he healed the man in front of them all.

Do you understand that we have created this for the same reason?  What is the value of a soul?  Is it worth spending $200?  Is it worth taking time to learn this system?  Is it worth having some disgruntled person get upset that you called them with the love of God?  Do people ever get upset when you knock on their door?  I had a preacher in Gatlinburg say that his people were afraid that people would not like phone calls about a church.  Did that stop the men lowering a sick man through the roof?  Were there people that were upset that they took the roof apart?  Were there some that were wondering who was going to fix it back?  One man called me and said he could not wait until God through me into hell because I had a new way that he had never heard of and everyone had to do it his way.  Have we gone stark raving mad?  Many get our emails and just UNSUBSCRIBE as if God does not see them and it does not matter if a soul goes to hell or not.  Some preachers say that they have to get the (backslidden members) church to approve the purchase because they would not spend their own money on this great system.  Do we have any men of faith in this country.  The Bible talks about how the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN SUFFERETH VIOLENCE AND THE VIOLENT TAKE IT BY FORCE.  Is there not a cause?  Do we really care about those around us?  We have invented the following sites as an act of faith and millions of people around the world have visited these sites:

http://churchprospecting.com

http://ifyoucouldknow.info – Video about Jesus and born again lessons

http://foundationsofmorality.com – Writings of Charles G. Finney transcribed into more modern day English.

http://davidwilliamsviolinist.info – Gospel hymns played on the violin with the words and story behind the song.

I believe that God led us to build these for a reason and we have software that shows us the amount of visitors on each.  My question to you is this.  Do you have the faith to use a new invention for reaching souls in your own area for Jesus?  IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?

I think that of the thousands of churches to whom we have sent this information we should have several thousand reaching their area for the Lord BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, even if people in your church say, “Someone will get mad at the church if we use a ROBO CALL on them.

Let me tell you what a Robo Call is.  It is a system that dials random numbers without knowing who the people are or what their address is and there are laws in place for this.  Our databases are from people who have filled out a form on line and given their full information so it can’t be classified as a ROBO CALL.  It is a voice broadcast to a list of people where you have their complete information.  Still, my question is this,  IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?

I think that the whole country could be reached if we used this system to it’s fullest capabilities.  I have been praying and working for God to provide the money so we can call the whole USA ourselves.  I can guarantee you that we could reach millions for the Lord if we only had a little money for the minutes to do so and I am working on that too.  I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A CAUSE and if you have to walk over the back of every pew in your church to reach the guy that needs the Lord DON’T LET ANYTHING STOP YOU.  If you have to call 10,000 people a week to reach one or two that would never hear the gospel with out it, why not give it a try?  Is there not a cause?  I think that after I send this out there should be at least 100 churches signing up.  We are certainly not getting rich selling this for sure because I wanted to make the cost low enough so anyone can afford it. We even throw a database in that we pay for that would cost more than the system from some vendors.  Is there not a cause?  Do you know how much some of these systems cost to own your own? My first contact with a voice broadcast system was unit and a cost of $700 for the small version and $2500 for the bigger one and a church had to add phone lines to use it.  The system I had before this was $500 with $29.95 per month plus the cost of leads and minutes.  Since it is online and digital, you have 200 phone lines to use for calls and can upload any database into the system.  We charge no monthly fee and you own it for life.

I feel like many of you are like the Jewish rulers that wanted to kill Jesus because he was so popular that they thought Rome would take their nation, so they killed Jesus and lost their nation any way.  Don’t think that God is not watching you read this and don’t think that when the opportunity is presented to you that you can pass on this offer because we will all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and God is going to ask you why you refused to use EVERY MEANS POSSIBLE to reach people when you had the opportunity.  Some of you are no better than the man who hid his talent in the earth.  We are offering this system and you refuse to even consider it, not knowing that maybe it was GOD WHO GAVE ME THE IDEA TO HELP YOU BUILD YOUR CHURCH.  Is there not a cause?  Let’s see how many of you really have the faith to contact us and order this system. Don’t worry if some dust falls from the ceiling or if the rulers get upset.  TAKE A STEP OF FAITH LIKE ABRAHAM DID WHEN HE BELIEVED GOD, HAD ISAAC, AND OFFERED HIM (IN PRINCIPLE) ON THE ALTAR.  God has a ram caught in the thicket for you.  He has a great surprise waiting IF YOU ONLY TAKE A STEP OF FAITH.  Contact me today, OK?

SomethingMissingDo you ever wish that you had a new way to find people in your area?  Do you wish that you could contact every member each week but not spend hours calling or visiting them?  Would you like to have a way to announce a special meeting without spending a fortune doing so?  Do people in your community even know your church is there?  Good advertising is expensive and it requires multiple times to get a person’s attention, can you afford that?  Could you use a steady stream of new prospects for people to visit each week?  Do you feel like something is missing in how you are reaching your area?  How much time would you need to spend to reach 10,000 people?

This system will do so many things and it is not expensive to do so.  Here is a list of things that Automated Church Prospecting will do for your church:

  • Contact every home within 75 miles of your church – system includes data base worth hundreds of dollars so you can reach every lost soul in your area.
  • Keep alive permanently every new contact that has shown interest in your ministry.
  • Revive soul winning and discipleship dramatically because you talk specifically to the people who want to hear your message!
  • Run this system every day and get up to 30 new prospects every week for visitation.
  • Increase attendance and offerings 10% (average) each week with your pastor’s weekly one minute call to everyone who knows about your church.
  • Instantly and accurately notify your congregation of all meetings and special occasions.
  • Keep the personal touch a part of your ministry regardless of the size of your membership.

With the low price of $200 and no monthly fee, you can’t afford NOT to have this system which comes with a free database of your whole state so you can select the zip codes from your area that you wish to contact.  Give us a call at 727-729-6652 and let us get you started.  Be sure to watch the video on our home page to learn how this can benefit you.

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

Christmas-Jesus-Gift


 

We can’t give Him diamonds, or silver or gold.  He owns all the hills and His wealth is untold. So what do you think would be the very best gift that you could give Jesus at Christmas?  I think that the best gift to give Jesus is Souls that will be in Heaven with Him, don’t you?  The best and fastest way to reach multitudes of people is through the Automated Church Prospecting system. This wonderful system that will call thousands of people to tell them about your church and ultimately tell them about Jesus. It can literally call 10,000 people in one hour with a message from you. We provide the system and the database of your whole state.  I can think of no better gift to give Jesus at this time of year than having a harvest of souls to celebrate His birth in Bethlehem.

A few years back I wrote the song I am singing above entitled, “What Shall I Give Him.”  As the words of the song say, it is not our Birthday but His.  Let’s be faithful in winning the lost that he died for at great cost.  He is not just the babe in the Manger but but the Christ that died for the sins of the whole world.

 

ECLThe Ecclesiastical Law Center is not a law firm which practices law, but rather a church resource center. As pastors with experience dealing in church-related problems, we assist others churches and pastors with information and guidance as these issues are navigated. The ELC started in 1987 when 50 pastors met in an auditorium to discuss the needs churches would face in the future. From that meeting was born the Ecclesiastical Law Center, led by director Dr. John R. Wright, then a pastor in South Bend, Indiana, and research director, Dr. Ben Townsend, current pastor of Bible Believers Historic Baptist Church in Northern Michigan.

Since its beginning, the Law Center has helped hundreds of churches return the Lord Jesus Christ to His rightful place as sole head of His church. In all conflicts in which the ELC has assisted Lordship churches, we have maintained the autonomy of the local church and the importance of taking a scriptural stand. As a consequence, we have helped incorporated churches to unincorporate and provided assistance and guidance in disentangling from the government. The Law Center has chosen pastoral representatives from across the country as advisers.

In 2011, Pastor Keith Hoover (Assistant Director) and Jason Burton (Research Director) joined Dr. Ben Townsend (Director) in the work of the Ecclesiastical Law Center.

ACT! for America founder speaks at anti-Shariah conference in Nashville CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO

Pastors:

If you think that there is not a cause to own one of these systems to get the Gospel to every creature, then you need to watch this video about how children in American Schools are being taught Islam and even how to say the Muslim “Sinner’s Prayer” to Allah:

This video needs to go viral. It is about how the public schools have no problem teaching Islam in the classroom even showing children how to pray the Islamic prayer to become a Muslim. Please share this with EVERYONE:

Red PhonePastors:

I helped a first time pastor set up his campaign and after doing the database for him and loading it into the system for all the zip codes he needed, he ran his campaign for attracting people to his church after they had changed the name to Amazing Grace Baptist Church.  He had his wife do the voice on the campaign and also on the second message on the voice mail.  He had Great results.  Here is his letter to me describing the results:

Hi Pastor Williams,

I was able to run a large part of the campaign yesterday. I plan on finishing this afternoon with another few thousand. We did have about 230 which made it to the secondary message either by pressing one or by calling the number later. I thought that it was pretty good results. Only about 1/3 of those made it to the voice mail and only a handful left a message with their name and email.

Remember, that you can contact every member, call 10,000 prospects in one hour, call different zip codes, help other past or friends reach new prospects, announce a special day like a pastor did at Halloween and had 40 new families come.  You can even help politicians run for office as one of our pastor is doing and working with the Duggar family to fight against the “gay” agenda.  This is not a time to sit idly by while the country is going down the tubes, it is time to use every possible method to reach as many people as we can today before our country falls and we lose our liberty and this kind of program becomes illegal.

If you have been sitting on the fence “THINKING” about this system or if you have tried to talk to your “DEACONS” about it but only got a bad response, try doing something that Spurgeon said in a sermon I read recently about the woman with the alabaster box of ointment, do the extraordinary, do something that  everyone else says is crazy, do something that really takes faith and boldness like the Apostles in the early church, get an Automated Voice Broadcast System that will find people you could never believe are out there and many of them are just waiting for a call from someone who cares, like you.  Are you willing to take the challenge?  I DARE YOU TO TRUST GOD AND BUY THIS SYSTEM!  You will be glad you did.
