ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The North American Mission Board (NAMB) officially launched the Who’s Your One evangelism initiative today (Feb. 26) as part of an effort to encourage Southern Baptists to engage people with gospel conversations throughout the year. This evangelism emphasis asks believers to pray for and focus on one individual in the hope that that person may come to Christ.
Southern Baptist Convention president, J.D. Greear, previewed the Who’s Your One evangelism emphasis on January 31 through a simulcast for associational mission strategists across the United States.

Current Southern Baptist Convention president J.D. Greear has worked in coordination with NAMB to develop a special resource for pastors that will help them personally embrace the effort and also lead their congregations to engage in sharing their faith.
“As a pastor, it’s easy to live as a ‘professional Christian’ who urges others to bring people to faith in Christ without actually doing it myself,” said Greear. “There’s a saying, ‘Evangelism is caught as much as it is taught.’ When our people see us praying for lost friends, inviting them to church and sharing the gospel, they’ll join us! These Who’s Your One resources give us pastors simple tools to call our people to join us in personal evangelism.”
As part of Who’s Your One, pastors can order a free kit from NAMB that includes several items to help their church practice evangelism. The package includes an implementation guide, a 30-day prayer guide, a prayer journal, prayer bookmarks and a poster. A USB drive includes digital resources including promotional graphics, slides, sermon outlines and transcripts, sample sermons and a bulletin insert.

NAMB has already shipped kits to thousands of churches and pastors and churches can order resources at NAMB’s online store, nambstore.com, or through whosyourone.com. Pastors can also receive assistance by calling 800-634-2462.
“At NAMB, it’s all about the gospel,” said NAMB president Kevin Ezell. “We want to do everything we possibly can to equip pastors and churches to reach their communities with the saving message of Jesus Christ.”
