Easter People In A Good Friday World

Can you imagine speaking to a crowd of thousands?  Can you picture teaching at a church that averages 24,000 attendees each weekend? Can you imagine still thinking that number was too small?

Steve Carter serves as the director of Evangelism and as a teaching pastor for Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois.

He values and hopes to impact those 24,000, but perhaps his greatest passion is to see more people impacted by the Good News of God and His love for us.

Steve believes that Christians are Easter People in a Good Friday world.  He shares:

“I think for many people in Christianity, we love the cross but we often forget that the tomb is empty . . .  I see Christians and disciples as people of the resurrection.  We’re Easter people.  We’re people that proclaim that the tomb is empty, and yet we live in a world that’s broken and fractured.”

Steve shares that he knows the idea of evangelism is a sensitive topic for many people.  Quite frankly, leaves a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths.  So just how should we evangelize?  What is the context evangelism should happen in?

We hope you’ll watch along with us today to hear what Steve has to say.
