In this video, Leonardo De Chirico offers his advice for Christians ministering in a nominally Christian context.
The advice that I have for ministering in a nominal Christian context is to always ground one’s own ministry in the Bible. Bible exposure is what really makes the difference in a nominal Christian setting. Secondly, ground one’s own ministry in experiential life and community life. In many nominal contexts, Christianity is only a matter of tradition that doesn’t really impact one’s own life, whereas the true gospel impacts the whole of life. So, it must be grounded in Scripture as well as experimented with or lived out in community forms and personal lives.
