This week (Feb. 24) we focused on the Process of Evangelism Chart on page 33. There are four phases or stages of evangelism: cultivation, sowing, harvesting and multiplication. This week we start one of three sessions on Cultivation, specifically understanding people and their culture. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. This week we will see that people are created in God's image but they are fallen and very influenced by their culture. Don't forget to refer back to God's Love cycle on page 18. The more you respond positively to the Holy Spirit's leading, the deeper the relationship that you will enjoy with God.
The assignment for Session 3 is found on page 35. There are 4 days of homework, starting on page 27 with an interesting Process of Evangelism Chart on page 39. Don't forget to memorize 1 Peter 3:18 as part of Appendix 1, Step 3 (page 142).
It will be helpful to watch the RightNow Media 9 minute session where Dr. John Bowen shares about the process of evangelism. We will be showing it again during the study. The link is:

moMENtum: MEN on the Move
p = mv
High School Physics defines momentum as the product of mass and velocity. Velocity itself has two components: speed and direction. Thus when you take a group of men (mass) coupled with a desire to quickly respond to God’s direction and purpose (velocity), you have a formula for momentum that will change the world around them. We seek to get men matured in Christ and mobilized to effect positive change in their families, friendships and fellowship, literally getting MEN on the move.
moMENtum (Men’s Ministry) exists to challenge men to delve into God’s word, to make necessary individual life adjustments as God leads them, to mature in their faith, and then unleash them into God’s service. This is not intended for the faint of heart. This is a call to become men of God.
We try to keep the process simple through a three faceted approach.
