How many of your friends are non-Christians? It’s a low number for many Christians in the U.S.
That’s one reason why Sammy Tippit Ministries will launch the Digital Bible Institute in 2022. Sammy Tippit says, “The problem is, you often lose some ability to reach out and minister to [non-Christian friends]. And then the further along you get in the Christian life, the further away you get from them. And then if you go into the ministry, you maybe go to a Bible college or Christian College. And before you know it, you’ve lost how they think, how they feel, who they are. You’ve lost contact with them.”
Tippit sees a gap between the training available for church leaders and the training available for laypeople. “There need to be some people who are trained. Not formally to be pastors, not formally to be missionaries or anything like that. But basically, to take these new believers and help them to grow.”
