Summary: The "modes of evangelism" is a practical way to think about the different kinds of evangelism in which your ministry can engage. When all three modes are at work, it’s an effective way to reach those around you.
Watch CruPress Presents: Modes of Evangelism to get a basic introduction.
Natural witness is communicating the gospel to those with whom you already have everyday relationships and interactions. A biblical example of this is the Samaritan woman telling others in her community about what Jesus had done (John 4:28-42).
Body witness can be the most confusing of the three. It happens as outsiders observe and experience a loving community of Christ-followers. Biblical examples of this are found throughout the book of Acts (Acts 8:5-8). People see God at work through his people, and this motivates them to come to faith.
Watch Two Movements to learn about two great examples of "body" witness.
Ministry witness is sharing the gospel with people you don’t know who are outside of your natural relationships. A biblical example of this is Paul’s intentionality to share the gospel in Athens (Acts 17:16-18).
