How to Host a Lost and Found Party: Turning Hospitality into Outreach

In this episode, Mark and Dave dive deep into the practical application of their three-part strategy for multiplying churches and disciples they shared for 2024.

Mark shares the model of a “Lost and Found Party,” a unique outreach tool employed in Queens, NYC, demonstrating how hospitality and intentional conversations can lead to gospel engagement and identifying persons of peace.

Listeners will learn about the importance of modeling and assisting in strategy execution, with real-world examples that inspire and equip for effective disciple-making in any context.

The Conversation Quadrant helps navigate from casual to spiritual conversations, comprising four stages: Casual, Meaningful, Spiritual, and Discovery.

  • Quadrant 1: Casual Start Light: Begin with general, easy topics like interests, hobbies, or observations to build comfort and rapport. Ask questions that open up more meaningful conversation.
  • Quadrant 2: Meaningful Go Deeper: Ask questions to shift towards more personal subjects, such as family, aspirations, or challenges. Listen actively and empathetically.
  • Quadrant 3: Spiritual Bridge to Faith: Offer prayer, share a Bible story by heart, or share part of your personal testimony to bridge into the spiritual quadrant. Your goal is to demonstrate the kingdom and proclaim the kingdom by sharing the gospel using a tool like the 3 Circles.
  • Quadrant 4: Discovery Explore Together: At the appropriate time, suggest exploring the Gospel or biblical truths together by reading the Bible. Offer to read a Bible story or discuss life’s big questions in light of Scripture.
