Praise and Proclaim Ministries launches campaign in Temple, Texas
On a hot and humid Saturday in Temple, Texas, a group of members from Trinity Lutheran Church and a few guests from nearby Austin gathered together to walk the streets and proclaim the gospel. After a full evening of training, they were ready to go. And the Lord blessed their efforts. Not only were a number of gospel seeds planted, but they were blessed with the experience of verbally proclaiming the message of salvation to lost souls in their community.
Is canvassing an effective way to do outreach?
Most Christians express a strong hesitancy over the prospect of canvassing in their community. They ask, “Does it really work? How will people going to respond? How will it impact my church?” The underlying factor behind all of these questions is that Christians are fearful – even horrified — about sharing their faith with strangers.
This post begins a five-part series that addresses commonly-asked questions and misconceptions about canvassing as an effective tool for outreach.
How to transition from being children of the Light to proclaimers of the Truth
In this dark world, believers are called upon to be lights on a hill – salt of the earth. They are meant to stand out – taste different – and sometimes accept the consequences. Rejection. Retribution. When a person steps out in faith, they can’t help but stand out in faith. And people living in darkness do not like to be exposed by a believer’s light and a proclamation of the Truth.
How can you transition from being children of Light to proclaimers of the Truth?
Praise and Proclaim Ministries launches outreach campaign in Redmond, WA

Building Outreach Momentum at Your Church
Is there no greater joy than being a member of a congregation that is actively sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in their community? Like-minded, passionate, and committed – it becomes a privilege to be associated with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who have a heart-felt desire to fulfill the Great Commission.
The truth is that many Christians who have a zeal to reach the lost often feel isolated and alone in their own congregation. And this even includes pastors.
At Praise and Proclaim Ministries, it is our prayer and privilege to help provide Christians with an opportunity to be what they have always desired to be – proclaimers of the gospel! And when that happens – the Holy Spirit captures an infectious zeal that spreads throughout the congregation.
We call this building outreach momentum.
Praise and Proclaim Ministries leads teens to share the gospel in Houston
Praise and Proclaim Ministries concluded a three-day campaign to share the gospel door-to-door in five separate communities in Houston. Teenagers from California, Illinois, and Wisconsin traveled to Texas on their spring break to take part in this outreach campaign.
One of the greatest joys for our ministry is to train Christians and watch them step out in faith to share their faith with others. When teenagers are given the opportunity to be a part of an organized campaign and receive proper training, they are amazing at sharing the gospel!
This was especially true in Houston, TX!
