Outreach is as easy as S-A-F

Recently, I read a strategy for reaching out to the folks in our community using the S-A-F principle.

S-stands for stranger  A-stands for acquaintance  and F-stands for friend.

The principle teaches you to move the people in your sphere of influence from “strangers to acquaintances and then to friends.”  Once you have made a friend, good things can happen.  Friends develop trust, friends share and friends listen.  Friends accept invitations to come to church.  Friends will meet our friends.  You get the point!  Whoever God leads to you, through time and serving, move your people from strangers to acquaintances then to friends.  Easy right!?

Copy and paste this Godtube link for a funny and surprising example of persistence in inviting people to church.
