“Churches called into existence by the gospel should also be shaped by the gospel in their everyday life.”
Don Carson and Tim Keller
Also available

Gospel Shaped Church is a curriculum based on the five characteristics of gospel ministry that lie at the heart of The Gospel Coalition that will help whole congregations pause and think carefully and prayerfully about the kind of church they are called to be.

This nine-week whole-church resource explores what it means for a church to be a community with a message and a mission to the world. This Leader’s Kit contains everything you need to evaluate, plan, promote and run an engaging and immersive program with your church.

Inside the Leader's Kit, you will find a copy of the Leader's Guide, a copy of the Member's Handbook and the nine teaching videos presented by Erik Raymond, in both digital download and DVD formats. Please note, this DVD is available in NTSC format only (All modern DVD players play NTSC in the UK). You will be able to download digital copies of the videos with a code contained in the kit.

There is also a Quickstart Guide which lays out a variety of ways in which the material could be used within your own church context, some ideas for creating a church bulletin to promote the course in your church.

Many Christians are nervous about telling someone else about Jesus. We prefer to leave it up to the preacher, or to those we see as particularly gifted for evangelism in our congregations. But all believers are called to make disciples. The nine sessions in this curriculum don't offer quick fixes or evangelism "gimmicks". But by continually pointing us back to the gospel, they will give us the proper motivation to work together as a church to share the gospel message with those who are lost without Christ.

This flexible resource will train your whole church through teaching, preaching, daily reading and small-group Bible study and discussion—or any combination of those elements. The overall aim is that your church will embark on a journey to discover the kind of people they should be as they are shaped by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Additional copies of the Gospel Shaped Outreach Handbook and the Leader's Guide are available.

Other information

This is part of the five-track Gospel Shaped Church curriculum developed with The Gospel Coalition from its ministry aims. It is designed to take the whole church family on a journey to discover how the gospel should shape every part of their life and witness. The full range is:
• Gospel Shaped Worship
• Gospel Shaped Outreach
• Gospel Shaped Living
• Gospel Shaped Work
• Gospel Shaped Mercy

"The Gospel Coalition believes in the priority of the local church, and that the local church is the best place to discuss these five ministry drivers and decide how to integrate them into life and mission. So, while being clear on the biblical principles, these resources give space to consider what a genuine expression of a gospel-shaped church looks like for you in the place God has put you, and with the people he has gathered into fellowship with you."
- Don Carson and Tim Keller

Cultivating an evangelistic, missionary, gospel-focused community does not happen by accident. It requires intentionality. Gospel Shaped Outreach is an excellent tool that can help a church accomplish this God glorifying goal. I am delighted to commend its widest possible use. Work through it and then go and do what it teaches.

Church is for Christians to assemble, worship, get fed and equipped to “go and make disciples.” For too many years our churches have taken the easy road by inviting the lost to church and calling it “evangelism.” This well intentioned trend of inviting the tares into the church in hopes they will become wheat has to stop.
Is this easy? No.
Is it Biblical? Yes.
Is it doable? Absolutely. And “Gospel Shaped Church” will help.
Erik Raymond does a masterful job of motivating the church to become Gospel-centered evangelists by utilizing the very thing he promotes: the Gospel. “The Gospel Shaped Church” is not a movement, it is Biblical. If you have been looking for a tool to equip your flock to become soul-winners, look no further.

I am privileged to know Erik Raymond not just as a writer and thinker, but as a friend and ministry partner. He loves the Lord Jesus; he’s passionate about the gospel; and he practices what he preaches. I’ve seen him plant and grow a gospel-shaped church using the principles he lays out here. So I’m excited to learn from him about evangelism.
