Scripture Engagement

Rhema for the Nations works beyond Scripture translations to engage unreached people groups with God’s Word. Our teams engage people with Scripture through Bible Storying, Mark Evanglism, Listening Sessions, and more. You can read about each method of engagement below!

If you or your church would like to be involved in these discipleship movements, please contact us

 

"Mark Evangelism"

The Great commission in action

"And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.'"
Mark 16:15

What Is Mark Evanglism?

Our Mark Evangelism teams partner with the local church planting leaders to reach out to people in the community with audio recordings of God’s Word.

Why Do We Do It?

We are reaching out to people groups who previously had no access to Scripture in a way that they could understand. Everyone deserves to be exposed to the life changing message of God at least once in their lifetime!

How Does It Work?

Typically, a Mark Evangelism team will go into a village and visit people door-to-door, meeting families and building relationships. If the household is welcoming, our teams would invite the family to listen to the Scriptures. If the invitation is accepted, we hand over an mp3 device and headphones and allow the person to listen to stories from the gospel book of Mark. This could lead to one-to-one evangelism, counseling, and prayer. 

What Happens Next?

We invite those who responded positively to God’s Word to the nearby church, Jesus Film showing, or Listening Session (below) to be connected for further discipleship.

In places where there is no church or listening session already in place, we would gather all the people who expressed interest in God’s Word and begin a new Bible Listening Session. This group would continue to be discipled in God’s Word and be the start of a new church plant.

Listening Sessions

What Are Listening Sessions?

Listening Sessions are a time for people of the community to gather and listen to God’s Word be spoken in their own heart language, often for the first time in their lives, on an mp3 device. 

Why Do We Do It?

People are dying every day without hearing the Gospel. We seek to provide access to God’s Word to unreached and unengaged people groups in a way that they can understand. Most UUPG’s are oral communities and are unfamiliar with writing and print; this is why we focus on audio translations that the community can listen to. 

How Does It Work?

Members of the community gather regularly to listen to audio Bible translations on an mp3 device. This group is often the start of a new church planting movement among their people group. 

Storying

What is Storying?

Storying is a method of evangelism in which we share the Bible through stories, drama, pictures, songs, poems, etc.

Why Do We Do It?

A highly effective way to reach oral cultures is by telling the stories of the Bible. They love to hear the stories over and over again, memorizing them word-for-word, and sharing them with others. Rhema for the Nations and many of our partners have proved that Bible storying is effective for evangelism, discipleship, church planting, and even leadership training.

How Does It Work?

Our teams gather women who have responded to the Gospel and teach them the Bible through storying. The women are discipled and equipped with the ability to go back to their communities and share the stories.

Donate an Audio Bible

Give an unforgettable gift to an Unreached and Unengaged People Group. Most UUPG’s cannot read the printed Bible and need audio Bibles to really understand God’s Word. Will you help us disciple our brothers and sisters in Christ by donating an audio bible? 

One Audio Bible will cost around $28.00 and will help disciple an entire village group. 

select “Audio Bible” as your donation campaign and 100% of your gift will go towards an audio bible
