Friendship Evangelism

2001 Vol. 3: May/June

In the fifth century A.D., a bishop named Patrick was called by God to minister among the Irish Celts. Because he understood them, Patrick realized that reaching the Celts with the gospel would require a remarkably different approach than the usual Roman method of evangelism. Thus, Patrick and his co-laborers developed a ministry based on hospitality and friendship. By the time of his death, Patrick had started a movement that not only saved the Celts, but has been credited with the saving of most of Europe.
