Praise and Proclaim Ministries launches campaign in Westminster, CO

Signs of an economic resurgence can be heard when earth movers shake the ground, saw blades are whining, and hammers are pounding. When these sights and sounds are seen and heard only a few miles away from a congregation, opportunities will abound to be proactive and reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is the …

How God’s parable of reckless grace prepares evangelists

In love and mercy, God is generous with grace. He extends his love with the hand of forgiveness to people though many reject Him. God’s grace pursues. His forgiveness reconciles.

Three reasons why proclaiming the gospel to friends and strangers is so terrifying for Christians

When angels spoke to people in the Bible their first words were usually, “Do not be afraid!” When Jesus sent out his disciples (Matthew 10) to the towns and villages to proclaim His name, he only gave them six words – simple and straight-forward.

When Jesus sent out his disciples to go door-to-door to proclaim the gospel, He needed the words needed to be simple, powerful, and easy to remember. He told them to proclaim the following message, “The Kingdom of heaven is near.”  (Matthew 10:7) How can we apply this same message to today’s world?

3 Ways the Power of Satan Affects the Work of an Evangelist

No unbeliever wants to be a Christian. It’s not just a stubborn refusal to trust in God’s promises [because they are dead in sin], the removal of social barriers, or even the hypocrisy of a church that holds a person back, but something even more powerful. When evangelists don’t acknowledge the spiritual forces behind unbelief, …
