Servant Evangelism Report EVAN 101-002
I greatly enjoyed both of my servant evangelism encounters, they were not always easy, but in the end they are extremely rewarding. My first servant evangelism encounter was when I went home for spring break. When I was home my church ran a spaghetti dinner on Saturday night, and me and other kids would serve people spaghetti. I started off serving noodles, and then worked my way down to the garlic bread, when I encountered a lady and I began talking to her and I asked her how she was, and worked my way into talking about religion and Liberty. I then began to tell her what I have learned and stuff, mainly from Dr. Wheeler’s class and my theology class. She said she was confused about God and what he wants from her in her life, and she asked me what she needs to do to grow, because I think she doubted God. I felt very uncomfortable, but God was putting me in this situation for a reason. But I began to tell her that we have to make God first in our lives and that is how we grow. We begin studying and reading the word, and spending time in prayer. I said we have to do this every day, it is very easy to get side tracked with life but we have to commit and put God first in our lives. She was very thankful and I think she respected Liberty even more than she did before. I greatly enjoyed this because I was put in an environment where you have to converse with people because I was serving them dinner. It was a lot easier than just walking up to someone and talk about God. Community service is a great way to spread the word of God and evangelize to people. Also because you are around friends and they can always assist you. For the encounter itself I believe it went very well, and maybe I could have been more prepared but I believed I stated a valid point to her.
Second Encounter My second encounter was a much more intense and nerve-racking experience. On Saturday
