Evangelism—talking about and demonstrating our relationship with God in such a way that it might resonate with others and draw them into their own relationship with God—is an integral part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

Yet it is demonstrably the case that Presbyterian churches and individual Presbyterians are not engaged in this foundational spiritual practice.

Insofar as effective evangelism is a way of being, and not just a program to be implemented, what is most needed in the Presbytery of the James is a new culture of evangelism.

The Cultivating a Culture of Evangelism Ministry is committed to catalyzing and nurturing this kind of cultural shift within the Presbytery of the James.
