God is bringing the world to our doorsteps, together, we are going to saturate East Texas with the Gospel. At my church, Mobberly, we are learning to love the community we live in enough to engage them in a long-term relationship with the goal of leading them into a life-changing, ever-growing relationship with Jesus. This focused initiative is called Engage10K!
East Texas is filled with morally-confused people, balancing traditional church upbringing with an ever-changing secular culture. Engaging outsiders requires Courage!
We all have relationships in our daily lives – but have you identified if those you have a relationship with have a relationship with Christ? Of course in East Texas, most people have some sort of spiritual belief. But what matters most is, do they understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
As you gain the privilege of sharing the Gospel with someone, you are also committing to make an investment in their life. As each of us engage different people in the next 3 years, imagine the potential impact by multiplying your investment by the number of people who are in that household. Our goal is to engage 10,000 households (not just individual people).
Here’s what it means to engage a household:
I’m not talking about a memorized program. As we become intentional with the relationships we already possess, the Spirit of God will direct us individually and strategically to have spiritual conversations that are unique and appropriate with each person. If we are willing to invest in a long-term relationship with someone, I am convinced that God will craft the unique windows of opportunity.
Engage10K works in relationships we already have with people outside of God’s family.
“Act wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.” Colossians 4:5-6.

Every person can make a difference! If everyone at Mobberly engaged one household a year, in 3 years, we would engage 10,000 East Texas households with the Gospel of Jesus! Can you imagine the stories of lives transformed by Jesus? Here’s one of those…
