The Elijah Challenge End-Time Model of Evangelism Today the Lord is restoring to the Church a Scriptural Model of Evangelism which will enable churches and believers to fulfill the Great Commission. In this model, based on John 14:12, "ordinary" disciples of Christ will preach the gospel and minister miraculous healing in low-budget, low-profile, relatively small (or even one-on-one) meetings. When the listeners see the miracles and hear the gospel, their hearts will be open to accepting Christ. The new believers will be followed up by the believing friend, family member, neighbor, or business associate who brought them to the meeting. Such personal follow-up of new believers will be more effective than the impersonal follow up after large mass crusades. There is a greater likelihood that the new believer will join the church and be discipled for Jesus Christ.
This kind of evangelism involving miraculous healings and the demonstration of the Spirit's power is through ordinary disciples and therefore not dependent on the presence of a specially gifted and anointed minister. As such, evangelism of this kind can be an ongoing and continuous feature of the life of every local church. This model of evangelism is not based on the charismatic gifts of the Holy Spirit but rather on principles gleaned from the ministry of Jesus Himself. Thus both Conservative Evangelicals as well as Charismatic Pentecostal believers are able to preach the gospel in this way and even work together in the spirit of unity. When every church is equipped with the End-Time Model of Evangelism, the Body of Christ will be significantly closer to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
