A TENT FESTIVAL IN SOUTH CAROLINA
The Philosophy of Evangelism of Jim Wilson Festivals
To plan and execute an effective program of preparation for mass evangelism in single-church Festivals and united area-wide Festivals, thereby deepening the spiritual lives of believers.
To motivate and mobilize believers in the activity of personal evangelism, thereby strengthening the local church.
To effectively and urgently proclaim the Gospel of Christ—that is, His death, burial and resurrection, so that unbelievers might be persuaded to accept His forgiveness, salvation and eternal life.
To equip lay leaders to conserve the "fruit" of evangelism for the local church, in an effort to build up the body of Christ-the Church.
To maintain absolute integrity personally and ministerially, as it relates to finances, methods, preparation and preaching.
Benefits of a Festival to the Local Church
Evangelism training. Many committed Christians have never shared their faith because they don't know how or they are afraid. Our counselor training program teaches Christians how to effectively and confidently present the Gospel. The classes also prepare you to counsel people at the Festival and for the ongoing ministry of the local church.
An Action plan for witnessing. A further step is taken when Christians put their learning into practice through Operation Andrew. You begin praying for and developing relationships with family and friends who need Christ, finally inviting them to hear the message of salvation at the Festival.
Spiritual renewal. Nothing is more exciting than personal spiritual renewal in the church. By helping prepare for the Festival, bringing friends and family to the meetings and worshiping with thousands of other Christians, renewal is sparked in individual lives and in congregations.
Christian unity. The church is never stronger than when it is united with one common goal. The common cause of the Festival, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, brings Christians together from many different backgrounds. Lasting relationships and bonds are formed which unite believers in the community.
New Christians in local churches. The Festival process is designed to channel new believers into churches where their spiritual growth is encouraged. New Christians sharpen the church and add vitality to congregational life and worship.
Awareness of church and community needs.As the Festival helps Christians gain a new spirit of evangelism, they also gain through spiritual renewal a new sensitivity to the needs of the poor, the hungry and homeless. Christians spurred into action to meet their neighbors' physical and emotional needs often continue that work long after the Festival is ended.
Prayer. Without prayer we could not survive as Christians nor would we ever hold a Festival. Every aspect of the Festival directs you toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer.
