What is Shalom?

Why is it that we spend so much of our time, energy, and resources inviting people when Jesus spent so much of His getting Himself invited? Have we, as followers of Christ, lost the art of getting ourselves invited to share the Gospel? If so, how do we rediscover it? Shalom addresses these questions and provides a practical four-step template that is easy to follow, yet groundbreaking in its perspective.

The shalom strategy is specifically designed to be a catalyst for our alternative approach to evangelism and to reach others through the method that Jesus demonstrated to His followers. Jesus did not come simply to rescue us. He came to recruit us. In this increasingly polarized world, our commission is to bring people to peace with God, or as the ancient Hebrews referred to it … “Shalom”
