Fishing On The Other Side: A Guide To Being The Church In The Digital Age
Fishing on the Other Side is about following Jesus and obeying His command to make disciples. Jesus told His first disciples that if they were to follow Him, He would teach them how to fish for people. They already knew how to catch fish, but now they would be catching people with the gospel. The principles for reaching people and catching fish are similar. What I’ve learned about fishing, I’ve also learned to apply to making disciples of Jesus:
1. You have to go where the people are.
2. You have to use different techniques and tools to reach different kinds of people.
3. In order to reach people who want to be reached, it helps to think like a spiritually lost person.
This book has a particular focus on utilizing the technological tools available to churches today to reach people whose lives are shaped by those same tools. In a time when the majority of churches are in a state of decline all over North America and the old tools and techniques of evangelism do not seem to be working as well, it is time that we adjust our techniques and start fishing on the other side.
