Many Episcopalians agree that sharing the gospel is an imperative of discipleship, but recoil from models of evangelism that are self-righteous and invasive at best, and coercive and colonialist at worst. What is evangelism out of an Episcopal ethos? How do we proclaim the message of God’s love by means of God’s love?
The Evangelism with Integrity initiative seeks to guide Episcopalians in reimagining evangelism as primarily a practice of building spiritual intimacy. Sharing the gospel comes out of sharing our lives, and the tools of spiritual intimacy—trust, vulnerability, invitation to depth—make possible an evangelism of authenticity, integrity, and joy.Evangelism with Integrity Events
