Reach - “Go ye therefore”
Reaching ministries are bi-directional; they may reach in, or reach out. Ministry efforts that are purely evangelistic have the conversion of souls in view, and these are generally organized and targeted to those who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. In-reach ministry efforts may include an evangelistic component, but are generally part of internal nurture. Sheep may sometimes lose their way and require guidance; including non-judgmental, and loving assistance from the spiritually mature. Matt. 18:12, Romans 15:1.
