A brother posted to two email groups and said,
I want to encourage others, especially our younger preaching brethren, to make more use of home Bible studies.
Right proper encouragement. I wonder what percentage of preachers — young and old — are apt and prepared to teach someone the gospel outside the pulpit.
A brother told me about one preacher who had never converted a soul teaching one-on-one. If that is not unusual, it's no wonder growth has stagnated in the USA.
Here is where real church growth will happen, when preachers and all saints begin teaching in the homes.
