A 2019 survey by Barna Group reported the startling statistic that 47% of Millennial Christians think evangelizing others is wrong. Craig Springer cites this statistic in the introduction to his new book, How to Revive Evangelism, and writes, “In the US especially, the instinct to evangelize is eroding.” The obvious questions church leaders need to ask are why is this happening and what can we do about it?
Those are the questions I’m discussing with Springer in Episode 247 of the Influence Podcast. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.
Craig Springer is executive director of Alpha USA, a program that runs in over 6,500 churches across every major denomination and 500 prisons throughout the country. Most recently, he is author of How to Revive Evangelism: 7 Vital Shifts in How We Share Our Faith, published by Zondervan.
