Organic Outreach for Churches Video Study
Nearly all churches and ministries consider themselves dedicated to evangelism, and many explicitly include outreach in their mission statements. But few are actually bearing the fruit. Kevin Harney diagnoses this problem and offers guidance for multiplying the outreach and impact of churches.
The Organic Outreach for Churches Video Study, along with its accompanying book, Organic Outreach for Churches, provides direction for local congregations to weave evangelism into the fabric of the church. Commitment to the Great Commission is not simply about sending money and praying for missions or holding occasional events to reach out (although these things are good). Organic outreach happens when evangelistic vision and action become the domain of every ministry and the commitment of every person in the congregation.
This will not happen accidentally. There is huge spiritual and practical resistance to such changes. The only way evangelism will become an organic part of a church is when every leader and each member is gripped by proclaiming the gospel. This video study provides a roadmap for pastors and leaders who wish to infuse evangelistic passion into every aspect of their church's life.

Most local churches want to become an evangelistic force in their community and the world, but sporadically focusing on outreach, giving money to missions, and praying for others are not enough. Organic outreach happens when churches weave evangelistic passion into every program and action. Visionary pastor Kevin Harney explains how in the Organic Outreach for Churches course.
