What is BLESS?

BLESS is a new approach to prayer and evangelism. It’s less about downloading information or memorizing scripts, and more about loving our neighbors well. It helps us get “unstuck” and practice evangelism more effortlessly. BLESS is an intentional pathway for persons of all ages who follow Jesus to become like Jesus and join the mission of Jesus. BLESS is an initiative of Make and Deepen Disciples.

Begin With Prayer

Pray for people in your life who are far from God.
Ask God, “How do you want to use me to bless the people in my life?”

Listen With Care

Pay attention to people’s dreams and pain.
Listen for evidence of God’s work in their lives.

Eat Together

Share meals and life with people in your life who do not know God.
Listen for evidence of God’s work in their lives.

Serve with Love

Be attentive to opportunities God provides you to care for people and attend to their needs.

Share your Story

Once you build relationship and earn trust, look for ways you can share the story of how Jesus is transforming your life and the world.
