The HRC is engaged in numerous evangelistic and church-planting efforts. Our churches continue to take seriously their calling to spread the gospel, beginning locally. In most congregations, local evangelism committees are zealous in bringing the gospel to the lost in a variety of ways. Current methods include Bible studies, radio ministry, neighborhood Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, tract distribution, nursing home outreach, ministries for the homeless, and jail or prison ministry. Local churches are also encouraged to consider church plants in their own geographical area.
