Vice President, Lonny Satterfield is launching a new emphasis to focus on the "Evangelistic" theme of our organization. Below you will find words from his heart for this movement and resources for taking your evangelism to the next level. We're all in this to further the Kingdom of God!
Each one of us have a part in fulfilling the great commission that Jesus Christ gave us after His resurrection from the dead and just before His ascension to heaven.
Dear Friends of FGEA, the responsibility is now on us. This wonderful privilege is ours. The greatest fulfillment in ministry is that of evangelism. The anointing and power of the holy Spirit accompanies evangelism, as we “go into our world!” We in FGEA want to produce a ministry fellowship which will continually spur each other on in this “Great Commission” which Christ has left to us. We desire to encourage each other to personally live a lifestyle of evangelism, making it a “way of our everyday lives.” We also desire to encourage and aid each of our churches to excel in evangelism and discipleship.
Many Christian leaders have admitted that evangelism has been greatly affected by last year’s pandemic. We in FGEA believe we must now re-focus our ministries to shine brighter and reach farther, and to do it here and now. John 4:35 Look, the fields, they are white, already for harvest.
May we carry a godly passion for the lost. Psalms 142:4b Does no one care for my soul?
We must let the love of God compel us. 1 John 3:17 … if not, … how dwells the love of God in you?
Those who are reporting souls being saved are those who are making evangelism a way of life. It is who they are! They purposefully evangelize by planning, organizing, and scheduling their outreaches. Outreaches such as Jail & prison ministries, foreign and home missionaries, their precise purpose is to evangelize. We can make evangelism and discipleship the precise purpose of our churches. Robert Morris has a going and growing church in Dallas Texas. He said when God called him to start his church, it was to be on the foundation of evangelism and discipleship.
This is the vision for our FGEA churches and ministries. Would you pray and plan with us as we focus on God’s great call to evangelize lost souls and make disciple of Jesus Christ out of them.
There are many evangelism plans, and many of them are sitting on our shelves in our offices. Let us pray that we ourselves and our churches will be evangelistic!
We have a list of Evangelistic programs that are available for you to use in your churches and ministries. We have scholarships available for churches who may need financial assistance in purchasing these or other evangelism programs for your church.
We also have a booklet “What We Believe”, our statement on biblical doctrines that would be good for discipleship, written by three of our great FGEA men of God and bible scholars: Earl Pruitt, Fred Hall, and Roland Depew.
If we can be of help in any way let us know. I will be glad to encourage you, work with you and check with you to see how your evangelism programs are going.
FGEA Vice President
This is a complete strategy for effective personal evangelism. “Go therefore go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19). As Christians we are called to spread Christ’s message of love to the world, but it is estimated that as many as 96% of churches do not have an identifiable witnessing plan in place to help people effectively and lovingly share God’s message of hope with their friends and neighbors. Created from a strategy used by missionaries and native Christians in South America, Each One Win One offers everyone--laypeople as well as church leaders--a comprehensive strategy to not only win others but nurture and mentor them as they grow in their faith. This complete resource is designed to extend outside the walls of the local church and into the surrounding community and beyond through the power of relationship.
Divided into three programs: Each One Win One, Big Brothers and Little Sisters, and Prayer Cells. It includes complete strategies, reproducible templates, sample brochures, certificates, checklists, student and leader’s guides, and posters for each program, plus an inspiring and informational DVD (in English and Spanish) from coauthor Louie Bustle. Each One Win One is an excellent tool for planting churches and growing pastors and leaders and offers Christians the knowledge and direction needed to effectively win and disciple others for Christ.

Evangelism Explosion! This is a very effective and proven evangelism program, but it takes continual working of planned class setting and consistent weekly scheduled outreach. It also is best for a qualified spiritual teacher to head it up, and someone other than the pastor if possible. Due to the commitment & focus it takes.
