The Salvation Army, Bill Hybles, Evangelism, & Berry Street

You can see the action of the wind in the leaves of the trees.  You can see the action of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, when believers gather in His name and ordinary people show and tell what He has done. It is awe-inspiring and it happens every Sunday at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Attending The Salvation Army USA’s National Seminar on Evangelism at the Navigators’ Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, last week was a great conformation for what we do at Berry Street. We allow people to hear the Spirit’s prompting and then do what He says during our Sunday morning service. The NSE applied this same idea to outreach and evangelism and encouraged us to obey the Spirit’s promptings in our everyday life and to approach people when the Spirit nudges us to do so. They also had an hour and a half, Spirit-led testimony meeting like we do at Berry Street. What a blessing!

The concept of hearing and obeying the Spirit’s promptings is taught in the book, Walk Across The Room, by Bill Hybles.  This book was the main text for the Seminar.

There is another book written about the Seminar itself, called:  Say Something — Tell Them. Win Them. Establish Them.  If you ever get the chance to attend the National Seminar on Evangelism, take it!

Also, if you would like to see these principles in action during a Sunday morning church service, visit The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry Street, Nashville, 37207 on Sundays at 10:45 am.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
