The Flipside of Evangelism Today – John Jay Ricci pt 1

Evangelism.  When you hear that term, what comes to your mind? What do you think of when you hear that word – “Evangelism?”

For some, they think of someone standing on the street corner yelling at everyone that walks by, telling them they are “going to hell if they don’t repent – NOW.” All while waving a Bible in one hand and possibly a microphone in the other. Or some may think of traveling to far off land to hold huge open air revivals with thousands of people in attendance.

But, in actuality, evangelism is rarely like either of those things I just mentioned. In fact, you may not even realize it, but you are probably serving as an evangelist right now! If someone asks you about your faith, you are now an evangelist. That person is looking to you to explain why you have Faith in the Gospel and in Jesus Christ. 

The general definition of an evangelist is someone who “declares” something. In this instance, Faith in Jesus as the Savior. But it can go a whole lot deeper than that. 

My guest today is an evangelist that has made it his life’s calling to, not only share the Gospel, but also to help others understand their part in sharing the Gospel. And this topic is near and dear to my heart. My calling into the ministry is the calling of “Evangelist and a Teacher. I’ve also served in the calling of pastor of a church for a bit. But my anointing lies in evangelism and teaching. And for the last 27 years, that is what I’ve specialized in.

So when I heard about what “Jay” Ricci is doing with the “Open Air Campaigners Mission” and the book he has written, “Evangelism’s Flipside: A Journey of Reaping the Unexpected,” I just had to get him on the program to share this information with you.

Help me welcome to the program, “Jay” Ricci.  Jay, thank you for joining us on the program today!

Ok, the first question I always start with is this. Other than that short bio I just read, tell us in your own words, “Who is “Jay Ricci?”
