The phrase “engaging your culture” is often used and in my opinion, misused. We aren’t trying to engage a culture, but rather a people within a culture. I know I am somewhat arguing semantics, but I think rephrasing it to “engage your neighbor” helps put things into perspective. We are trying to win people. We are not, or at least should not, be trying to “win a culture.”
With that being said… What are some things that you and/or your church is doing in order to engage your neighbors, your community? Is it more than inviting them to your church to hear your “awesome band” and “practical preaching?”
Seriously, I would like to hear some things that are being done by SBCers and SBC churches in order to engage your communities for Christ.
How are you and your church living missionally?
