For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost...

luke 19:10

Jesus came to seek and to save the lost.  He met physical needs.  He healed diseases, cast out demons, and raised the dead.  He authoritatively expounded upon the law of God.  He came to seek, to serve, and to save those whom His Father had chosen and for whom He would die.  We in Vanguard Presbytery believe that evangelism is key to planting churches that plant churches.  Serving the needs of our neighbors is one of the keys to opening the door to evangelism.  Opportunities abound.  Let us know where God is leading you to serve, and we will find a place for you!

Jeremy swygard

Jeremy has been trained as a missionary and an evangelist in various methods.  
Very little in life is as exciting as leading someone else into a saving knowledge of our Triune God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  
All is from God, through God, and to God, and the joy of knowing Him and making Him known is unspeakable.

All of us are called to the work of an evangelist.  Some have the gift of evangelism.
We look forward to equipping you with a good understanding of how to learn and to communicate these truths to others.

The following Five Gospel Greats give us an accurate picture of the full message of Scripture presented from five brief but complete passages.  
Great God - Romans 11:33-36
Great Fall - Genesis 3:1-7
Great Exchange - Romans 3:21-26
Great Call - Acts 17:23-31
Great End - 
Revelation 20:11-21:4

Outreach & Evangelism FAQ

what are some of the resources you trust?

God is the source of all knowledge, and His Scripture alone is infallible.  
We have found the LSB Bible to be a faithful and readable translation.

Dr. RC Sproul's teaching series that have been compiled by Ligonier Ministries are a tremendous set of resources for anyone who wants to understand the Christian life.

The creeds, confessions, and catechism developed by the faithful church throughout the centuries are a treasure trove that we neglect to our own peril or unnecessary toil.  (See our beliefs page for more.)

We are adding to this list.  Come back for more!

what if I say the wrong thing?

We all have to start somewhere, so go forth and be bold in the strength of His might, trusting God to bring about the results He has ordained!  

The apostles used the following outline throughout Acts, and we believe their example is worthy of imitation:
1) Establish the One, True God as creator, holy, and just.
2) Demonstrate that we humans sin and are in need of forgiveness.
3) Proclaim that faith in Jesus Christ is the one and only way to be forgiven.
4) Command the people to repent and believe.
5) Point out the end for which God saves them: worshiping Him forever instead of eternal torment.
(Sounds like the Five Gospel Greats.)

What if I get asked a question I cannot answer?

Go forth in the confidence that all questions under the sun have been presented to believers, and each and every one of them has been answered.  If someone does not believe the truth, that is not your fault!  It is your responsibility to proclaim the truth fully, completely, and clearly, for God is in charge of who comes and who does not.  What a comfort!

If you do not know the answer to a question, feel free to say, "I know there is an answer to your question.  May I do some research and get back with you?"
