During the 1st 18 months of planting Calvary Fellowship, we did not see 1 person decide to follow Jesus at our church. There were a few re-dedications, but no 1st time decisions. This led to a bit of a personal crisis because I've always believed that evangelism and discipleship and the name of the game (so to speak).
What God did during this time was show me the importance of reaching out and the need to have a process of discipleship should God send new believers to our church. Here's what happened: The 1st 18 months zero people decided to follow Jesus… over the last 18 months over 800 people have made 1st time decisions to follow Jesus in our church. This has led to the majority of our growth as a church coming from new believers. It has also meant the need for us to develop a system and strategy to help new believers mature in their faith.
Here's the truth: There wasn't much out there to help churches create a system that teaches them what to do once a person indicates their decision to trust Christ for salvation and help them on a path to maturity.
That's why at www.church-strategies.com we just released our New Believers Follow Up System. I am so excited about this resource because it gives leaders everything they need to help a new believer NOT fall through the cracks, but instead take steps that lead to maturity.
I mentioned this resource to a small group of Pastors and we literally sold out of our 1st run of this resource! It shows me that the need is great and that Pastors don't want to see one more person making a decision for Jesus not become a disciple of Jesus.
