The target is converts.
Why does it seem such an outrageous aim for a congregation to recruit new converts?
in my old congregation, the enthusiasm was there but the knocking on doors produced zero " baptisms" in my final years.
A) why so little interests?
B) was it the Internet ?
C) why in spite of such pathetic interest, do some continue to pionee?
personally I blame the publishers, I generally believe if they were interested in converting the product is very sellable, to a wide target audience such as the vulnable, the lonely, immigrants, ect ect...maybe it's all about show, and not encouraging the townspeople to come to meetings?
