Yesterday, BGCT Executive Director Randel Everett spoke during Engage. He shared he was recently visiting with Paul Landrew, pastor of St. Stephen Baptist Church in Houston. In the past few years, the congregation has seen a multitude of people make a profession of faith through a variety of community outreaches — giving out clothes and food, to name two specifically.
Yesterday, Randel shared that he asked Pastor Landrew a question — What is the church’s secret to reaching people? Landrew’s answer was simple, and, in my estimation, applicable to all of us.
“We look for people who are crying and go there.”
