"Paradigm Shift" by Johnny Wong

"Paradigm Shift" by Johnny Wong [LQ]

Local churches are fixated on a broken paradigm for soul winning. Too often large amount of effort and funds had been spent on yearly public evangelism to yield little results. Furthermore there is no discipleship for the newly baptised and within 12 months majority had left the local church. God desires us to 'finish the work' but we need a new paradigm which is actually an old one from the New Testament church.
