ORGANIC OUTREACH | KEVIN HARNEY
Hi—this is Kevin Harney and I'm one of the co-founders of Organic Outreach International. Organic Outreach is a movement now spreading all over the world that helps local churches discover how they can change their culture to be outwardly focused.
We all know in the local church there's really three things we're called to do—to glorify God and lift up his name, to grow believers into full maturity in Jesus Christ, and to reach the world with the good news. The problem is, most churches are worshiping and they're growing believers but we're not effectively reaching out. Most studies show that, of the ten markers of spiritual health and vitality, the lowest marker in almost every denominational group in the world is intentional evangelism—it's outreach. We believe in it, we just don't get it done. So we're inviting you to come to a two day training on April 12 and 13 where you will be equipped and trained to change the culture of your church.
We're so serious about this that we've created a website that you can simply go to (organicoutreach.org) and everything on the website is free. We've created a five-year curriculum that you can use in your church—it's entirely free. This training is really helping you understand how you install a whole new operating system in your church. If a church has all kinds of programs for outreach but there's no operating system that works with health and vitality, the programs don't work. I'm convinced that with the right heart condition—the right operating system in your church—almost any outreach can be effective. And with the wrong heart or operating system almost nothing we do works.
So, we are going to be coming in to your part of the world. We are going to be gathering with leaders at the RTC in Melbourne and over two days we are equipping and training and resourcing you to go back to your local church to make a transforming movement where every ministry of your church and all that you do has an evangelistic intentiveness, commitment and action. We want to give you skills to equip and train every Christian in your church to naturally share their faith in your unique context.

I hope you can come and join us. I believe that God has called his church to reach out in fresh new ways with the same good news of Jesus. I look forward to seeing you there. God bless you.
