Large Evangelism Events

Here is an overview of the phases involved with have a large evangelistic event (i.e. crusade, festival, etc.). This process takes about 9-15 months depending on the size of the city and the responsiveness of the churches.

Don't let some pomo-minded-dude out there say that this style of evangelism is out moded. It's not. The public proclamation of the Gospel and the organizing and deploying the saints for evangelism has not gone out of style.
