Abstract

The purpose of the research project was to determine if a local church has failed to equip the congregation with the tools needed to share their faith, and saturate the local community with the Gospel message; and if so, to provide immediate training and test the results for its effectiveness at the Emmaus Missionary Baptist Church, Owings Mills, Maryland. Participants heard four consecutively evangelistic sermons, which were preached during the 10:45 a.m. worship service. In addition, after each sermon the participants attended a workshop that covered: (1) The biblical mandate, biblical definition, and meaning of evangelism; (2) The biblical method and saturation methods of evangelism; (3) A group exegete of the local community; and (4) A group Strategic Evangelism Plan. A pre-test and post-test was administered. The study attempted to measure the attitudinal change in the areas covered in equipping a local congregation for saturation evangelism workshop.
