Gospel Meetings … do they still work?
I’m enjoying a 5 day Gospel Meeting (Revival) at the Highland Church of Christ in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. Two nights of the meeting are down and three still to go.
Most churches don’t have Gospel Meetings anymore because they don’t feel like it’s effective or attendance just isn’t what it used to be in the old days. I know the church in Childress has MUCH better luck with outreach through Friend’s Day, etc. The thing I find interesting is that the Highland church, where I’m at now, still has a very successful meeting. The building is full every night. They start months in advance advertising, inviting the community and talking it up. Every member goes ALL out to make their Gospel Meetings successful. So much for my old thought of, “The days of the successful Gospel Meetings are in the past.”
So what do you think? Are Gospel Meetings/Revivals working in your church? What do you do for outreach?
