Some moons ago, I interviewed Dr. Robert Bell in the first of what I hoped would become a 1Marks Interview Series.

1marks.png It is now officially a series, because Dr. Robert Vincent agreed to sit with me for an hour-long interview (right click link; choose “Save Target As”) about church and personal evangelism. I have worked under Pastor Vincent in evangelism for quite a few years, because he has been the pastor in charge of evangelism (and church education) at my home church, Mount Calvary Baptist, since 1999. I have learned so much from watching him deal with kids and teens on a weekly basis; I wanted to make a way for him to share some of his careful philosophy with you.

Pastor Vincent teaches evangelism to Doctor of Ministry students at BJU; he has a Ph.D. in Church History from that same institution. I hope you will profit and the kingdom will grow as a result of this conversation.

“PV,” as he’s affectionately known among our outreach ministries, recommends a few books toward the end of the interview. Here they are (each book is a clickable link):
