What are some keys to a successful Evangelistic Block Party?
Key 1: A great evangelistic block party is intentionally evangelistic. Evangelism is your number one goal. One way to approach evangelism is to have a team trained to give out marked New Testaments. A second approach is to use Gospel tracts.
Key 2: A great evangelistic block party is organized. Have one entrance to the block party. Register everyone to develop a prospect list for follow-up after the party.
