The Serial Inviter
“How can we learn to freely invite?” Only 5 percent congregational members said they “operated on an instinct.” I call these participants serial inviters. Whereas for 95% of congregational members this means there is a brief internal struggle, a decision point during which people can cave in to fear— sometimes wisely— or charge forward. This mental turning point perfectly encapsulates both aspects of the courage quotient: the management of fear and the willingness to act. How can we turn this brief internal struggle when God call us into a step of faith? Ask God for help and Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
