Every Student Is an Evangelist: The Life Book Challenge

 —  April 16, 2012 — 4 Comments

We just finished up a huge evangelism effort during our The Book series (40 Days in the Word church-wide campaign student series) where we ended with a Life Book saturation. We put together a whole bunch of packs of 10. Then we put a little card on top that said this:

These are Life Books – it is a tool that includes the Gospel that will change your life. The top copy is for you, the 9 others are for your friends. When you give one away, write their name on this card and remember to pray for them that they will know and follow the ways of Jesus, too.

For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.” But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15

I’m really proud of our students – a TON of them took a stack over that weekend are actively sharing their faith with their friends. We ended up with a few packs on the table in the back of the youth room that are still being whittled down each weekend!

I’m excited to hear that you can get in on this, too – they are already taking requests for Fall – and expecting 100,000 students to hand out a couple of million more Life Books. Amazing. Get the details here!

  1. Awesome!

    Our church is planning on doing the 40 days in the word next fall!

    I’ve dug through that LifeBook and really liked it. This is a cool idea, definitely something to think/pray about!

    Related question – our students meet one day a week outside of weekend service. How would I differentiate a church-wide campaign/study like 40 days in the word so they don’t get similar messages Sunday and Wednesdays at youth group?

    Thanks for all you guys do!

  2. We actually don’t connect the weekend services (youth group) to small group at all. We use the LIVE curriculum and then teach our own series on the weekend. I see advantages both ways, but that really works for us! JG

  3. When you handed out the lifebooks did you put any information inside about contacting HSM or your services?

  4. We didn’t …buy meant to the idea is genius. We depended on the student to make the invitation, but I’d I could do it all over again I would have stamped them or put a label on the inside cover or something!
