So what exactly is #Share72?
#Share72 is a simple way to involve your church members in evangelism by focusing them to share the Gospel at least one time over a 72 hour period of time (typically Sunday noon – Wednesday noon). It is the power of a moment. We have all had that moment when a decision or opportunity taken changed the course of either our life, or the life of someone else. Imagine the impact in your community when your church members are focused on sharing the Gospel with at least one person during a 3 day moment in time. Focusing church members on evangelism creates expectation, synergy, community, and most importantly… results!

#Share72 is a simple but powerful way for church members to take the Gospel to the community.
Is there a Bible study to help support and train church members for #Share72?
There are two Bible studies, one for adults and another for youth. Both studies focus on Matthew 9:35-38. The adult study has supplemental material to help guide the group members to write their Legacy Letter (testimony), and a brief overview of the Gospel.
“Is there going to be a big #Share72 emphasis that our church could be a part?”
Absolutely! In fact here is the recommended schedule, but #Share72 does not have set dates in the resources, so you can implement it anytime. Here is the suggested schedule:
|Statewide call to prayer to ask the Lord to send workers into His harvest (9:38 a.m. from the Scripture verse Matthew 9:38)|
|August 13-27||Equip Small Group and Sunday School leaders for #Share72.|
|September 10||Recommended date for #Share72 Bible study in Sunday School and Small Groups.
Commitment time in worship services.
Also, recommended date to begin #Share72.
#Share72 concludes. Celebrate #Share72 victories in Wednesday evening ministries.
Is there a social media hashtag so that we can engage a larger audience?
We recommend that you use the hashtag #Share72 on social media, and use it a lot. The more often the #Share72 hashtag is used, the more curious your friends, neighbors, and others will be about #Share72, and the more likely they are to engage with the Gospel. The Holy Spirit can and will use social media to draw lost people to Christ. Another hashtag to consider using is #GospelAdvance, from Philippians 1:12.
